For this episode, staff writer Ryan Mainville joins the show to discuss all things NBA Draft.

We start discussing the wild range of rankings among the various draft experts in NBA media (see this crazy list here). How in the world does Killian Hayes have such variance? Why isn’t Desmond Bane ranked higher? What about Cole Anthony? In short, how and why is this draft so impossible to predict?

Then we pivot to the Mavericks specifically, covering both who Ryan thinks they should draft as well as who he wants them to draft. Last, we discuss Ryan’s favorite players in the draft and anyone we should keep an eye on this season out in Lubbock where he attends college at Texas Tech.
