Here he is: my favorite player in the draft. Collin Sexton is a projected late lottery pick, and I’d love to see him in a Clippers uniform. The Alabama point guard is known for his undying athleticism and crazy speed. He is always driving in and finishing down low. While he isn’t the best shooter from deep in this draft, he has what I like to call “The JR Smith Factor”, meaning if he hits a couple 3’s initially, its going to be a barrage and no one can stop him. What makes me like him most is what he did when Alabama played Minnesota. The game got to the point where Alabama had 3 players in the game. Only 3 players!! They almost staged the most impressive comeback in basketball history. Young Bull probably won’t fall this low, but if he did, I would be ecstatic. The Clippers have this pick only because of the Blake Griffin trade from back in January. They are currently a very guard heavy team, but Sexton would surely get priority as the Clippers usher in this next chapter for the franchise.
