I thought the Audubon Zoo had to have some, but I couldn’t find any in their online shop.

However! I did find a t-shirt with one of the possibilities the team could have chosen from instead of Pelicans: Rougarou



Thanks for finding me my dad's next Christmas present.

No way the dude wouldn't be in China or Europe by now if he wasn't picked number 1.

As a Canadian I'm kinda obliged to root for his improbable success but goddamn does that guy seem like he's not able to play basketball.

Also it's been said a million times but 2013 draft is kinda hilariously bad.

Dear ESPN
I am requesting a full side podcast of zach Lowe and Ian Eagle discussing all the foods they're manbabies about
I want a whole episode discussing the fact that one of them has literally never had salad. You gotta do poo poo like that on purpose. That's a lifestyle.

At the very top sure but there are some real decent players there, Giannis obviously, CJ, Otto, Rudy, Steve... KELLY

Yeah the top of the 2013 draft sucked but it's pretty infrequent that the guy who turns out to be the best player is actually selected at the tippy top. I can only think of Davis and Towns as the times in the last 10 years or so where the number 1 pick became the best player.

e: although lol at the entire top 5. A Zeller has the most WS of them lol

Speaking of draft steals is Thon Maker as good as he looked in the couple playoff highlights I saw? This thread doesn't have enough obsessive Bucks watchers to keep us informed but I need there to be an entire team of Durant-shaped legarm spider freaks.

I mean yeah it's got some good players further down but I'm not sure I've ever seen the top 10 swing and miss so wildly with the exception of McCollum.

Assuming he develops the skills he already has he should be a very solid player but I'm not sure he's thick or athletic enough to be an actual star type

Has any other draft in the last decade produced 2 top 10 players?

Not at all, he wasn't even good for most of that series. But those flashes of him hitting 3s and guarding the rim in the perfect complement to Giannis were too tantalizing to remember that he mostly sucked.

Top 10 is flexible. Just going by All-NBA (top-15 in any given year) there are plenty.

2010 has John Wall, Boogie, DMC and Paul George. 2012 has Anthony Davis and Draymond. 2013 has Kyrie, Klay, Kawhi, Jimmy, IT. 2014 has an outside shot with Embiid and Jokic. etc
