NBA Draft Roundup

The NBA Draft is over and we have grades for all the teams, the night's best fashion roundup and a look at the 10 best undrafted players. Also of interest: DeMarcus Cousins had the night's best tweet ... Kris Dunn showed some love for his favorite designer ... I want Jamal Murray's white hat ... Caris LeVert's Michigan suit was my second favorite of the night (Brandon Ingram's snakeskin was first) ... 76ers first-round pick Furkan Korkmaz really loves Darth Vader ... A cameraman wiped out trying to film Ben Simmons. 

A Quick Rant

My favorite part of Thursday were newspapers running with the scoop that "Phil Jackson told Derrick Rose he's going to pursue Kevin Durant." My response: No s.... The problem is 10 other teams with substantially more talent are also pursuing him. And guess what? There's a better chance I play for the Knicks next year than Durant does. Not sure if Jackson is delusional or it's another case of New York overvaluing itself, but this "scoop" is not a scoop at all and the Knicks will be lucky to make the playoffs next year. Rant over.
