My 10 thoughts on the Draft. (PFB)

The best college players who didn’t get drafted. I’m firmly in the “Deandre Kane is a badass” camp. He went toe-to-toe with Marcus multiple times. (Yahoo)

Nets GM: “There were places we could have gotten in the first round but we thought the price was too high. And so as we looked at it, Markel Brown gives us an athletic combo guard, probably one of the top athletes in the whole draft.” (NewsOK)

And I can promise you he will put the effort in. (Nets Daily)

Celts owner: “We like the fact that he’s an instigator. Red [Auerbach] told me that you need instigators, not retaliators. He’s a bull.” (Boston)

This guy was a mess last night. He’s like the Celtics version of me. (Celtics Hub)

Brad Stevens: He has come in here twice in the last three weeks and we’ve absolutely fallen in love with his leadership and his work ethic and his spirit and the way that he goes about things. He’s physically ready to play and competes every single minute of every single day.” (The Republic)

Andrew Sharp says the Celts lost last night. (Grantland)

Ford: I am honored to have coached these two young men and appreciate what they did to elevate our program at Oklahoma State on the national scene.” (Tulsa World)

Marcus on LeBron: “The type of person I am… I want to play against the greatest. You can say whatever you want to say, but LeBron is one of the greatest players to play this game. Playing against is definitely my answer.” (GQ)

Marcus on last night: “It felt like fireworks on the Fourth of July.” (ESPN)

This year is just the fifth time since 1985 that one conference has boasted three of the top six choices overall. (Big 12 Sports)
