The overwhelming favorite to be drafted No. 1 overall and lauded as one of the best NBA prospects since LeBron James, Williamson could change the trajectory of the Pelicans' franchise for years to come. New Orleans had a 6 percent chance of winning the lottery.

Big night in the Big Easy! Good for them. They can keep AD or get a haul and build around ZW.

I don't know how the Lakers got #4. That's good trade stuff right there.

Is Zion enough to completely change the Anthony Davis trade sweepstakes?

I was thinking Zydeco met Zionism, but HeRat beat me to it.

We can't make any tactical mistakes in this one. It's the whole enchilada if our team loses.

Use the sekrit channel more often, also.

Glad the Knicks and Lakers lost out.

The Lakers didn't lose out, silly. They moved up from 11 to 4. They'll use that pick, package it with every decent player on their team, and get AD. That will in turn convince one of the big time free agents to play with LeBron, AD, and the Santa Monica High School team on the Lakers.

A guy can dream, right?

Make or break summer. James isn't getting any younger. This gives them a good shot if they play their cards right.
