Most of the talk surrounding the up-and-coming Los Angeles Rams has involved the idea of them bringing in Odell Beckham Jr. in a trade with the New York Giants. Now that others have joined the Rams in the OBJ sweepstakes, we have no real idea how that situation is going to play out.
But in an interesting turn of events, at least one NFL general manager thinks that the Rams could ultimately end up landing New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski instead of Beckham.
That’s life when you make one of the biggest shots in school history. Townes drained a 3-pointer from the corner with six second left to cement the team’s Sweet 16 upset over Nevada. Even Sister Jean, now the most famous nun in sports, had Loyola marked down for a loss in her bracket at that point.
I haven’t really stopped to think about how historic that shot was, but it was a pretty big moment and I’ll never forget that the rest of my life, Townes said. You dream about being in March Madness and hitting a big shot like that.
In Bleacher Report’s latest 2018 NBA mock draft, the Knicks landed Oklahoma point guard Trae Young with the ninth overall pick in the first round.
It’s not the first time we’ve seen Young mocked to the Knicks, but this one came with a twist that could potentially lead New York down this path when the actual selections start flying off the board in June: Duke big man Wendell Carter Jr. went in the top six.
Carter, compared to a young Al Horford, has been a popular pick to New York in the back half of the top 10. If he’s off the board, a point guard like Alabama’s Collin Sexton or Young could make sense for the Knicks.
NBADraft.net compared Young to one of the best shooters of all time.
