If you’re a Longhorns fan, and by extension, a Sooners hater, you find creative reasons to talk about Blake Griffin in a disparaging way. You’ll focus on his injury history, or his lack of stellar defense. And undoubtedly, you’ll bring up the fact that he punched a team employee in the face.

We finally know the order of the 2017 NBA draft. As a Mavs fan, it’s hard to see that Dallas might have won the #3 pick if only they’d lost another game and had more ping pong balls in play. Instead, they’ll pick 9th, after almost all the top tier talent is already gone.
Or is it? There’s a chance that things don’t go as planned and one player falls. Here is my post-lotto mock draft.
Mark Cuban likes to stir the pot. This year he’s had Russell Westbrook squarely in his sights. First, it was Mark’s statement that Westbrook isn’t a superstar. Now Mark’s back, letting us know that Westbrook isn’t MVP worthy either.
Tim MacMahon tweeted:
Mark Cuban says MVP is a toss-up between James Harden and LeBron James. Where is Russell Westbrook in that mix? “He’s not.”
Russell Westbrook has certainly given fans an entertaining season for the ages. But MVP worthy? That’s harder to measure. Has Westbrook made his fellow teammates better? Does he contribute to the team being more than the sum of its parts? Or is he just a triple double machine obsessed with proving his star value in comparison to Kevin Durant?
