i like to express my inner pain by being really boring on the phone
or just when i'm kickin it
that's me though
i'm kind of oddddddd

The 2016-2017 college season is about to start so you're going to need to know who to watch. I've googled up from relevant information about the big prospects, hopefully other people can help fill in the details:

Joshua Jackson, SG/SF at Duke, age 38, married to Diane Kruger, starred in TV's Fringe


Dennis Smith, PG at NC State, retired NY firefighter and author, according to IMDB directed several episodes of TV's Fringe


Markelle Fultz, PG/SG at Washington, claims he wants to be the best player of all time which is unusual, no known connection to TV's Fringe
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LpY8ETEbsI0#t=3s

Lonzo Ball, PG at UCLA, every guard from UCLA is great, extremely high-level name tools
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ud9nuf5Gm-Y#t=102s

Harry Giles, PF at Duke, I think he's a Prince or in a boy band or something, I think he's been getting injured a lot I dunno I thought he was listed #1 a few years ago. May have guest starred on an episode of TV's Fringe

De'Aaron Fox, PG at Kentucky, superior name tools
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fK-Kl96dtl8

Please discuss.

Whenever I import this class to NBA 2k16, Josh Jackson becomes a multi-year MVP/DPOY.

So he should go #1

Is Lonzo Ball a distant relative of Tom Ball, namesake of the city where Jimmy Butler grew up? (Tomball. It's literally called Tomball).

e: Wrong Thread

The presumptive number one pick should change several times this year. Joshua JAckson star of the mighty ducks is a super athletic wing at Kansas so he might look totally average.

Dennis Smith might look incredible

Markelle might struggle a little

Danny Chau wrote a piece on the Ball family earlier this year, maybe this is what you're referencing?

mercifully, the Knicks might be bad enough to actually make use of a lottery pick this year. lots of talent going around

I was sort of under the impression that Fultz was actually the best fit for Philly given that he has a decent shot and has the ability to play off the ball (seeing as Simmons will probably be the one initiating the offense).

Depends on who actually comes out this year and who stays overseas.

There's a doofy looking guy from Germany named Isaiah Hartenstein, so obviously he's the next Dirk, since he's a doofy looking German guy.

There's the delightfully named Rodions Kurucs, but I'm thinking he'll wait a while since 1)He's on contract with FC Barcelona until 2019 and 2)He just had knee surgery and probably needs a solid year of playing time or two to not tank his value.
