• The NBA Draft Combine is Upon Us

It's that particular time of year once again. The time when sorry sack franchises can really feel all tingly inside using the hope that maybe their harshest of shortcomings can be washed away having a couple of doses of luck by way of the NBA Draft. Will their respective front office possess the fortitude to pull the trigger around the next "Greek Freak," or will they lead to Fran Fraschilla to have an on-air aneurysm (starting at the 2:27 mark) with shrieks of a player getting "two years away from being two years away."

That's correct, the NBA Draft method has finally reared its head, as well as the first cease on this epic journey lies in Chicago for the NBA Draft Combine from May possibly 11-15. This is the time when junkies are offered absolutely free reign to debate a player's wingspan with far more precision than Jay Bilas, cook up some fire around the NBA trade machine and undermine their respective GM using a litany of analysis accumulated by means of an onslaught of Draft Express videos at two inside the morning.

As outlined by NBA.com, more than 70 players have already been invited to this year's combine, but the offered list is without the need of a single notable name: Ben Simmons. A great deal like his Australian brethren Dante Exum in 2014, Simmons is not going to be in attendance in the combine.
