Last night was the NBA’s 2015 Draft. Over the past couple days leading up to the draft there was a lot of speculation that there would be plenty of movement in the draft. These speculations were based on the possible trade of DeMarcus Cousin, Kevin Love opting out and LaMarcus Aldridge leaving Portland. There were no huge surprises and no big moves. The Lakers did surprise some by picking D’Angelo Russell over Jahlil Okafor. The Knicks picked Kristaps Porzingis, which was the best player available but it still didn’t please the New York Knicks fan base.
