NBA draft: social media error sees Fultz heading No1 to (team name) and (City)

  • Lonzo Ball will stay in California to play for Los Angeles Lakers
  • Boston Celtics take Jayson Tatum at No3 overall
  • Timberwolves trade for Jimmy Butler in deal with Bulls

The Philadelphia 76ers got the player they wanted and Lonzo Ball the team he wanted. The 76ers selected guard Markelle Fultz on Thursday night with the No1 pick and the Lakers followed by taking Ball, the start of a record-setting run of one-and-dones in the NBA draft. The point guards from the Pac-12 Conference began a run of seven straight freshmen. Nine of the first 10 selections played just one season of college ball.

Fultz’s selection was made all the more memorable when a pre-written template on his Instagram page wasn’t filled out correctly, leaving the interesting caption: “Excited to head to (City) and join the (team name).” It was unclear at the time of publication who (team name) were hoping to select in the second round or what the fans in (City) thought of Thursday’s events.

NBA trade deadline: the winners (Pelicans) and losers (Kings)

The New Orleans Pelicans took a step forward, the Sacramento Kings took a step back, the LA Lakers hit the reset button – and the Boston Celtics went nowhere

Heading into NBA trade deadline day, there was a very real fear that the biggest move of the year had already been made. But while nothing was likely to top the New Orleans Pelicans’ deal for DeMarcus Cousins, there was still plenty of talk that either the Chicago Bulls’ Jimmy Butler or the Indiana Pacers’ Paul George could find their way to a contender before the 3pm ET deadline.

Basketball in 2016: 10 memorable moments

The Golden State Warriors’ dream season ends in a LeBron James nightmare; legends leave the game; the basketball world mourns Pat Summitt

You can be forgiven for thinking that the Cleveland Cavaliers were finished. After all, no team in NBA history had ever come back from a 3-1 NBA Finals lead and they were playing a Golden State Warriors team that wasn’t just good but historically unprecedented.
