1. PHILADELPHIA 76ERS F BEN SIMMONS LSU The Sixers biggest need is...well...pretty much everything besides a logo and a mascot. Ben Simmons is the easy 1 choice here as he combines the handle and vision of a point guard off-the-chart athleticism all in a 69 frame. Simmons is a once a decade-type talent and Philadelphia will be getting a future perennial all-star. Great kid great motor and will give the Sixers a face to the franchise they havent had since Allen Iverson. 2. LOS ANGELES LAKERS F BRANDON INGRAM DUKE Ingram is a beast for Duke. Brandon is playing incredible ball and has the length and shooting ability that scouts and teams covet these days. He can be a big 3 or a stretch 4 and is a mismatch at both positions to defend. Ingram is slowly creeping up the board and has some general managers even considering him at 1 overall. 30 www.flipmagazine.netFebrar2016 The NBA draft is fast approaching and its time for all of you miserable Kings Timberwolves and 76ers fans to take those paper bags o of your head come out of the witness protection program and crack a brief smile as the next great hope may be joining your team soon Here at FLiP weve done our research and homework on this upcoming draft class and its time for you our loyal FLiP-ites to reap the benefits. I really need to FLiP topics for a moment pun completely intended and talk about the Cleveland Cavaliers firing their head coach David Blatt. I know this will be old news by the time this article runs but I need to rant anyway. Ive been watching sports for a long time now and Ive never seen anything like what happened to Blatt. The Cavs were 30-11 and 1st seed in the East by a bunch when he was fired. Let me say that again the Cavs were first in the East the 1 seed overall and on pace for 60 wins Thats INSANE and completely unprecedented. LeBron speaking to reporters about having no advance knowledge of Blatts firing is not only absurd but utterly impossible to believe. He finally got his buddy Tyronn Lue elevated to head coach and threw Blatt right under the bus. James is one of the best players the NBA has ever seen and is also one of the worst human beings theyve ever had as a superstar. He makes Kobe look like a good guy and believe me that isnt easy. Ok enough of my ranting. I feel so much better now Ok back to the draft Every basketball fan knows Ben Simmons at this point the next LeBron but try throwing out a Jaylen Brown reference at your next cocktail party or an Ivan Rabb comment at your buddys bachelor party and watch the confused but awed looks youll garner...youre welcome This mock draft isnt based o of current standings but more where we believe teams will end up based on record strength of schedule and desire to win.
