Swish! Celtics net No. 1 pick


The Ball family might only be interested in one team, but the Lakers will examine a handful of prospects to make sure they get it right at No. 2.

The Boston Celtics have claimed the No 1 pick in the NBA Draft after winning the lottery on Tuesday night.

The 2017 National Basketball Association draft lottery was held on Tuesday, which means we're that much closer to the National Basketball Association draft on June 22nd.

Boston Celtics co-owner Wyc Grousbeck smiles after the learning the Celtics were awarded the No. 1 pick in the NBA basketball draft, at the draft lottery Tuesday, May 16, 2017, in NY. The Los Angeles Lakers took second and the Sixers came in third. The only other occasion occurred in 1950. "I think I have everything to be the No. 1 pick", he said.

The whole situation stems from a 2013 trade in which the Celtics sent Pierce, Garnett, and Jason Terry to Brooklyn as the Nets tried to build a star-packed team to rival the Miami Heat.

Citing dismal approval ratings, he had withdrawn from the presidential race to better the chances of his party to remain in power. French voters have traditionally rallied around the newly elected president in the general election held weeks later.

BOSTON - The Celtics are heading to the Eastern Conference finals with the No. 1 seed and home court advantage. "With a team like that, the defending champions, you can't let them hit first. Now it's our turn four years later to take some benefits from the trade". It's a Boston team that many wrote off after the Celtics fell into a 0-2, first-round hole against the Bulls.

"That felt pretty good", Grousbeck said after the draft lottery results were revealed.

While the Celtics and Lakers were the big winners, it wasn't just those franchises that had a lot at stake last night.

"Markelle Fultz is the flawless pick for them", Ball said.

While Boston was going to get a top-four pick, the Los Angeles Lakers had to sweat out the lottery.

In short, he went all-in for a period of three months, trying to prepare Clinton for any trick Trump might pull in the debate . And Comey has long arms so Comey said he pre-emptively reached out for a handshake and grabbed the president's hand.

"The pain that we've all gone through, the pain of losing is real".

The first option would be to draft one of the great young players from this year's draft class.

"That's all we working out for is the Lakers", said LaVar.

The Celtics had a 25 percent chance to get the top pick, thanks to Brooklyn finishing with the worst record in the league. The New York Knicks are in the midst of a risky game with their top players, Carmelo Anthony and Kristaps Porzingis but after Tuesday, that black hole got wider. It will be New York's second lottery pick since 2009-an odd reality given the fact it's missed the playoffs in five of the past eight seasons. New Orleans traded the pick to Sacramento in the deal involving DeMarcus Cousins at the trade deadline.
