The biggest night of basketball this week did not belong to the NBA.
Last night’s Champions Classic double-header in Chicago featured plenty of hype and lots of talent.
"GM’s wish the draft was tomorrow," LeBron James tweeted during the games.
So do most Jazz fans, LeBron. So do most Jazz fans.
With Utah still winless on the season, there are plenty who have already started to look to next year, when the Jazz will be able to add a pair of first-round picks to their roster.
But fans, scouts and GMs didn’t have to wait that long for a glimpse at what might be.
The two games last night featured more than a dozen projected first rounders, including the big three.
Kentucky’s Julius Randle scored 27 points in a loss to Michigan State.
Jabari Parker had 27 and nine as Duke lost to Kansas and Andrew Wiggins, who hit for 22.
Who impressed you the most last night?
Which one would you take on draft night?
