Awesome, old must-read thread from Mark Appel, who just got called up to the majors nine years after being drafted as the top pick.

This Day In 1991: SI asks is Mike Tyson’s Fury gone?

Meanwhile, in England, there’s a 2-year old boy who was named Tyson by his father after he survived being born at one pound.

24 years later, the boy now man beats Klitschko, becomes heavyweight champ.

His name? Tyson Fury.

JD Davison, who went No. 53 to the Celtics, was most talked about second round pick last night.

He’ll get a two-year deal (not guaranteed) worth around $4.5M.

If he does well, starts clock & makes big $ faster.

Flip side: Could have stayed in school, had NIL value of $750K+

Draymond Green said nothing motivated him more than getting drafted 35th a decade ago.

When I heard that he memorized the 34 players drafted before him, I had him do it.

(He had one miss — switching Fab Melo and Jared Sullinger’s draft positions)

Legal sportsbooks seem to have decided not to do specific picks live — only players to certain teams — to cut down on exposure.

Correction: THREE states that have NBA teams have no income taxes.

Luckily for Paolo Banchero and Jabari Smith, the No. 1 & No. 3 picks, that includes Florida and Texas.

Mike Miller went from being the 5th pick in the 2000 NBA Draft to representing the #1 overall pick in the 2022 Draft.

Miller was selected by the Magic, just like his client Paolo Banchero.

Paolo Banchero was as high as +2000 to go 1st.

A NJ bettor wagered $2.5K on Paolo to go No. 1 at +1200 and just won $30,000 💰

All legal sportsbooks have pulled the odds for No. 1 pick.

Books will offer live betting but will stay two picks ahead of Woj and four picks ahead of TV.
