Small ball was the story of the NBA Finals.
It might seem temporarily forgotten at the start of the NBA draft.
The first three players taken Thursday could easily be a trio of big guys. Karl-Anthony Towns seems the likely pick by Minnesota at No. 1, the Los Angeles Lakers would next figure to snare Jahlil Okafor at No. 2 and it wouldn’t surprise many onlookers if Philadelphia then took Latvian prospect Kristaps Porzingis with the third pick.
Give or take an inch, they’re all 7-footers.
