    Cool! I'm game.

    I'm most interested in the Giants #2 pick. Will they trade? Will they take a RB, QB, DE? Those seem to be the most popular mock draft options. It will be very telling what they think of their upcoming season with that single pick. Will definitely post back here with my thoughts after that's announced.

    I would absolutely love to stop hearing about how amazing Lebron James, Durant and Curry are.... It's been irritating me for a good while now. Almost so much that It's been pretty much ruining the entire sport for me. At least with the NFL there are about a dozen stars that everyone rotates talking about. But with the NBA.... all I ever hear about is these three, and more specifically, James. Every single time I turn on the sports channel, it's "LEBRON JAMES DID/DOES/IS?/CAN/WILL" every single time. I'm super tired of it.

    It'd be great to see some rookies come in and outshine everyone, at least James.

    Couldn't agree more.

    Made this thread after just game 1 in the series and I think Ben Simmons is just getting more impressive. Check out his last game's highlights. Could actually see a Lebron/Simmons showdown in the conference finals. That's the matchup I'm most looking forward to.

    I think the winner of Vegas vs San Jose will go to the finals. My hunch is that we will get a Bruins/Golden Knights final. That would be sweet. Can't help but root for Vegas all the way this year.

    I've complained a lot in other threads about the NBA having a 'Warriors/Cavs dynasty problem'. Well I think at the very least this year we have something much more interesting to watch as NBA fans than just waiting around for Lebron and Curry/Durant to get into the finals.

    Sure, that could still happen. But this year its much more likely not going to, especially when it comes to the East. Several rookie debuts through Game 1 were outstanding and make me excited to see what team's rookies can carry their teams deep into the playoffs and maybe even into the finals.

    Ben Simmons (76ers) and Jayson Tatum (Celtics) were easily the two most fun to watch in my opinion so far. But a handful of rookies this year are immediately making a positive impact on their series.

    Who do you think will be the best rookie performance out of the whole 2018 playoffs? Gotta give my vote to Ben Simmons at the moment, especially as he could be facing an epic showdown with Lebron in the East conference finals.

    For bust picks, I just have the one right now...

    QB - Baker Mayfield. I just have a feeling he goes to the Jets, and I think he will struggle in a division with the Patriots for quite a while before he sees any real success, if any at all.

    Very interesting. Of course my picks here will be dependent on them landing on teams that set them up for success. But here are my top 5 boom picks per position:

    RB - Saquon Barkley. This is my #1 BOOM pick. Best all around talent of all the running backs in this draft. He can be a top 10 rb instantly, especially if he goes to the Browns.

    QB - Josh Rosen. Tough call between the top 6 qbs going, but great accuracy and a high football IQ I think will give him a really good chance at being a great franchise player, especially if he lands in Denver.

    WR - Calvin Ridley. Love the hype and skills behind this guy. Not sure where he will go. But he can be a true #1 basically anywhere. Might take a few years before he is elite though.

    S - Minkah Fitzpatrick. I think this is a really underrated position to get right in the draft. If you grab an elite safety early on in the draft, your team's defense can instantly become dominant in the league. He is the best from what I can tell.

    G - Quenton Nelson. Probably the most NFL ready player for his position. Good chance at multiple Pro Bowls for him.

    After watching a good bit of Tiger play in this tournament, I think he is improving quite a bit. He isn't dominate anymore and likely won't ever be again. But he is still really good at times. He had some great shots in this tournament (along with many bad ones), but it was overall fun to watch him be in the mix in a major.

    He finished +1 overall. But hey.. at least he made the day 2 cut. Happy That's improvement for him the last few years. Here's how the last round for him played out -

    Damn. He missed a tough short put on the 18th, to finish out with a 64 on the last day. Still a great round. 9 birdies in a single day, that's awesome. He is 2 shots out from Reed at the moment, so he needs some help to go for a playoff or win it all. But definitely still a possibility..

    Well he isn't out of it yet. I think -4 is the best score for the first round. But yeah, not the greatest start either..

    Tiger Woods has won the Masters 4 times in his career. Of course everyone knows he has fallen from grace the last half decade basically. But it sort of appears he is climbing back into relevance as of late, finishing as high as 2nd in the Valspar Championship event in March, with a few top 10-20 finishes otherwise. Seems like he is getting some confidence back.

    Makes me wonder if the first major of the year can go well for Tiger, and cause him to turn on a redemption tour? The last few years he hasn't even been able to make it to the tournament due to injuries and whatnot. He did place 4th in 2010, 2011 and 2013. So he has a long history of playing well at Augusta.

    Anyone think he can finish in the top 5, or even take it all? Also, The New York Times is going as far as having a Tiger Woods live tracker blog on his performance throughout the whole tournament, if interested.
