Nick Angstadt and Isaac Harris discuss Dennis Smith Jr. in the Rising Stars game and draft their team of Rising Stars.

After the Rising Stars game we decided to draft our own teams if we were starting an expansion team right now. Isaac took the Kentucky Colonels and received the first pick after an actual coin flip. I revived the Seattle Supersonics and negotiated to receive the second and third picks for basketball reasons.
