Who Won the 2017 NBA Draft?
Philly, of course! I mean, of course we won, right? What did you think I was going to say? Da Sixas (The Philadelphia Seventy Sixers) selected Markelle Fultz No. 1 with their acquired top pick. And what’s not to like? Fultz can shoot, he can score, he can pass, and he can flat out play ball.
So, the question is, who is better after the 2017 NBA Draft? Philly? LA? Boston? We’ll see. But all three of these historically elite NBA franchises have gotten better with the selection of their draft picks. But the question remains, who will go from good to great? Which team gets not just better, but markedly improved with their pick? And isn’t that what we all want to do?
We all want to be wanted. We all want to be wished for and hoped for and craved and coveted. The need to be needed lies at the very core of sports, and life. Philly needs a point guard like nobody’s business. And we got the best one in the draft. Thank God.
We all need love and support and attention and affirmation. Too much will spoil us. But too little could hamper us and hobble us for life. The good news is that God wants us. He has chosen us to be His special people and His peculiar possession. To win, all we need to do is signup and play for Him.
