1. BIG MEN

starts at 1:00

Five went in the first seven picks, though not necessarily in the order we would’ve taken them. Is there Tom Izzo shade? Of course.

2. B1G MEN

starts at 22:33

We run down the draftees out of the Big Ten, including Los Angeles Lakers center and LeBron James’ teammate Moe Wagner. Is there Tom Izzo shade? Of course.

3. LUKA vs. TRAE

The biggest trade of the night inextricably ties the draft’s top two lead guards together. The guess here is that’s great news for Luka Doncic and Dallas and much less so for Trae Young and Atlanta.

4. WINNERS AND LOSERS

starts at 34:33

The Mavs had a great haul even beyond Doncic. Michael Porter Jr. may be the ultimate boom/bust. As is the NBA norm, it’s better to be young and unproven than an experienced non-superstar.

Is there any chance that these can, more routinely, have an all-Michigan section? I can't be the only one who just doesn't care about the NBA as a whole but would like to keep up with Michigan alumni.
