The NBA draft has come and gone and only the select few got to hear their name called on Thursday night. As with every year, there were those players who snuck into the draft that none of the experts thought would be drafted and there are those players who the experts thought would be drafted.

The pool of talent in the 2016 Draft Class is lethal. The players that get selected on Thursday night will be the ones that lead the NBA in years to come. This year’s draft is full of promising talent. One of the proven youngsters is the 19-year old guard from Canada, Jamal Murray. Murray dominated throughout his youth, and for one season he was the top player for the University of Kentucky, under the leadership of John Calipari. As a teenager, Murray had become one of the most dominant players in the NCAA, and will become one of the next NBA greats.

I give up (before I even start)! I would like to offer up all the statistical expertise that can be gathered from the robot journalism plugging in the numbers, or sports/basketball blogs sharing a wealth of pontifications on where two-time Big East Player of the Year, Kris Dunn, will fall in Thursday’s 2016 NBA Draft.
