The 2017 NBA Draft is mere weeks away and anticipation is starting to build, as this is shaping up to be one of the more interesting drafts in recent memory. From potential draft day trades to inescapable LaVar Ball antics, this year’s draft should be entertaining to say the least. On top of the entertainment factor, the crop of prospects in this draft class is so talented and deep that it has drawn comparisons to the legendary class of 2003. Hyperbole aside, fans have a lot to look forward to when draft day rolls around and everyone should be prepared for the unexpected to occur.
