    But since we need a 2-guard, how about Tyler Herro (Kentucky)?

    My guy is still Nassir Little if our pick lands in the top 6-10. My eyes are also on Tyler Herro -- the best fit in my honest opinion https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F41TeaSCxcI

    Lakers don't have a 2nd rounder this year, do they?

    He’s held the record for 40 years, but former Kentucky All-American Kyle Macy says he never really fretted about freshman Tyler Herro breaking his single season free throw accuracy record.

    “He is doing a great job. A lot of guys don’t spend time working on foul shooting like they should,” said Macy, the starting point guard on UK’s 1978 national championship team. “I don’t know how much time he spends, but he’s got it down with what he’s doing. He gets the ball, shoots it and doesn’t think about it.”

    Whatever Herro does, it’s working just like it did for Macy when he always followed his ritual of wiping his hands on his socks before shooting.

    “I think the routine puts you in a trance and you block out everything and do not worry about the crowd,” Macy said. “When you put in shots and see results, you get more confidence. You want to be the one fouled because you have confidence to help your teammates. The more you make, the more confidence you get.”

    Herro is shooting 94.3 percent (83 of 88) at the foul line and made two in the final seconds of Saturday’s NCAA Tournament win over Wofford to put UK into the Sweet Sixteen

    Just what the Lakers need. Imagine if the Lakers add @LethalShooter__ to the coaching staff and drafts this guy (already ranked #17) http://www.nbadraftroom.com/p/2019-nba-mock-draft.html

    Yeah, there seems to be something special about this kid. Maybe he can teach our kids (and LBJ) his secret.

    I also like Nassir Little, too.

    We traded it in the Bullock deal.

    Also, I've been wondering when you were gonna show up to this thread. This looks like a thread taylor made for you. I always look forward every summer to see your draft prospects. Brunson is really starting to shine in Dallas.
