The Case for Doug McDermott

Now that the NBA Draft Lottery has come and gone, and while us fans get over the shock of Cleveland landing it’s third #1 overall pick in the past four years (the NBA gives Dan Gilbert yet another gift for losing LeBron, and another young player to entice him to return), the mock drafts are …
