Phoenix Suns fans have had a busy few days.
Following last week’s NBA Draft Lottery, where it was revealed that the Suns had been awarded the number one overall pick in next month’s NBA Draft, debates have raged over what to do with the pick. At that time there were two camps, Deandre Ayton, or Luka Doncic.
Then we were treated to the news that Karl-Anthony Towns, shockingly, might not be completely happy in Minnesota. And that with a truckload of picks, including number one overall, the Suns might pry him away from the Timberwolves.
While many Suns fans engage in an absurd battle over who has watched more EuroLeague highlights on Youtube, there are certainly other prospects that we should have our eye on. Phoenix will also pick 16th in the first round. And that’s around where many have University of Miami shooting guard Lonnie Walker being chosen.
That’s if, in fact, the NBA Draft is even real.
Move over, flat earth believers. Lonnie Walker has a new conspiracy theory for you. https://t.co/5HQTQn4wjS pic.twitter.com/VlTCztiiN2— Miami Herald Sports (@HeraldSports) May 22, 2018
During an interview with ESPN at last week’s NBA Draft Combine, predictably, the conversation turned to if the Earth is flat, or for that reason, even real.
“When you talk about facts and things of that nature, it’s amazing to me we’ve discovered so much about this world,” Walker said, “yet, we don’t anything about this world.”
“The Earth is not flat, in my opinion, but the Earth, on my conspiracy, the Earth is definitely an illusion.”
DEFINITELY an illusion he said. He should be complimented for delivering that take so confidently. At least one mock draft has this guy joining our Suns. USA Today says Phoenix drafts the 19-year-old, Sports Illustrated thinks the Wizards take him at 15, ESPN says he won’t fall past the Clippers at 13.
I’ll let you get back to Ayton vs. Doncic, but check back frequently to stay up-to-date on conspiracy theories from draft prospects.
