Duke's Jayson Tatum selected No. 3 overall by Celtics

Duke's Jayson Tatum selected No. 3 overall by Celtics

"It's great. I think that I get to learn that much more, especially from a veteran team that knows what it takes to get there", Tatum said. He put the total package on display in his most impressive stretch during Duke's four-games-in-four-days run to the Atlantic Coast Conference Tournament title, averaging 24.5 points while shooting 57 percent. "He was like, 'Yeah, it's 30 hours away". Tatum is talented and he may even be a future NBA All-Star, but the Celtics have now created a bit of a log jam.

"Frank, it's just his mentality - you know, that pitbull", Graham added. "He can score in any way, I don't think anybody can stop him, honestly".

In Jackson, Graham sees numerous same traits as Mason - athleticism and an impressive will to win.

The commissioner stepped up to the podium's microphone, glanced out at the Barclays Center audience, compiled of draft hopefuls, fans and media members, and announced, "With the third pick in the 2017 NBA Draft, the Boston Celtics select..."

Malik Newman, who sat out last season under NCAA transfer regulations but practiced against Mason and Jackson all season, also sees parallels between the two former Jayhawks.

Bond was also charged for helping dispose of Bella's body - and for taking government benefits for her daughter after her death. She said she saw McCarthy punch her in the abdomen so hard she bounced off the mattress. "Justice for Bella", she said.


"Frank is a great pickup for the New Orleans Pelicans", Krzyzewski said.

"I definitely have to continue to get better and working on my game but just for the opportunity, I don't think it was given, I think I earned it". Josh is the same. Freshman Jayson Tatum (third overall), sophomore Luke Kennard (12th) and freshman Harry Giles (20th) were each first-round picks, while freshman Frank Jackson (31) was the first pick in the second round.

The Celtics rejected Jackson's demand, and in the process of waiting for Jackson to lower his price, turned their thoughts to the debate of whether to draft Tatum or Josh Jackson of Kansas. Jackson said the "only reason" he did not meet with Boston is because of scheduling reasons.

At 22 years old, he's become a very versatile option and many considered him a steal at 37.

Asked what he planned to do with his newfound riches, Tatum said, "I would love to pay that mortgage out".

Intel Skylake, Kaby Lake users warned of HT flaw
For now, Holschuh recommends disabling hyperthreading to circumvent the issue, but that isn't an acceptable long-term fix. A critical flaw that affects Intel Skylake and Kaby Lake processor Hyper-Threading came to light over the weekend.


Jackson refused to come to Boston and, finally, when Ainge and Stevens were flying cross-country to Sacramento earlier in the week to see Jackson work out, Jackson's camp canceled the workout at the last minute. Justin Tatum recalls, when Jayson came and held her before one of his games, telling her, "I'm gonna play hard for you", and "You're gonna have the best sweet sixteen birthday ever!"

He says all the right things, he's from the right school, he's been coached the right way, he's been raised the right way, he has the right body frame for today's wing-dominated National Basketball Association, where versatility is the name of the game. The simple truth is that very few draft picks turn into superstars. Everything that he said validated what I already heard. "You can't really tell by my emotions, but I feel good. It's just seeing my brothers get their names called". That led him to declare for the NBA Draft. Prior to that, you have to go all the way back to Todd Fuller, who went No. 11 overall to Golden State in the 1996, to find an N.C. State lottery pick.

That team will probably be the real Eastern Conference favorites. Cole didn't allow Jayson Tatum's academic performance to suffer because of basketball and encouraged him to be a role model off the court the way he looked up to Kobe Bryant.

· Tatum certainly can provide the scoring Boston needs, hopefully immediately.
