We will find out, but one thing is for sure: Nobody, not even the experts, knows what teams will select come draft night. Well, maybe they can have a third straight good draft, but I'm anxious. I know what's coming next is not a popular opinion, but if both Patrick Mahomes and Deshaun Watson are available at the 25th pick , don't take Deshaun Watson . Read More »

Bulls' Rajon Rondo a 'long shot' to return from thumb injury

On the other hand, however, Hoiberg was the one who initiated this discussion with his complaint the other day, and you can't make accusatory statements like that about an All-Star and not expect to be asked about them. If the Celtics fail to close out the Chicago Bulls on the road, Game 7 of that series will be held Sunday at 1 p.m.in Boston. It was a perfectly reasonable question to ask of Hoiberg, who invited such scrutiny as soon as he went on his ridiculous diatribe about palming , ... Read More »

The Seahawks, who got an additional third- and seventh-round pick from the Falcons, will pick 34th overall on Friday and have San Francisco's fourth-round pick (111th overall) on Saturday.

How to watch Round 1 online, draft order, start time

Many analysts believed that Cleveland would select Garrett before circling back to Trubisky if he was still on the board at no. 12, or that the team would trade up in order to try and select Trubisky earlier. The point is he seems to like a mobile quarterback that can roll outside the pocket and can run the zone read option. However, I think Mitch Trubisky will be the first quarterback taken. Read More »

Rockets take out Westbrook, Thunder

Outside of that, Roberson did have a great series but when a guy is costing you easy points (and his name isn't Shaquille O'Neal), he needs to come out, especially with as many whistles as there are in the final minutes of an National Basketball Association game. Read More »

Is he a good fit for the Cleveland Browns? Texas A&M pass rusher Myles Garrett has been the consensus No. 1 for the entire pre-draft process, but Browns ownership wants a QB, and might not be patient enough to wait until No. Let's assume that they take Garrett first-overall; what then?
