  2. Former Ute Kyle Kuzma named to NBA All-Rookie First TeamRead the original story w/Photo

    Wednesday | Block U

    A year after deciding to stay in the NBA Draft, which was a surprise to so many people, including myself, Kyle Kuzma was named to the NBA All-Rookie 1st team along with Donovan Mitchell, Jayson Tatum, Ben Simmons and Lauri Markkanen.

  7. Pre-Draft combine interviews bring interesting tidbitsRead the original story w/Photo

    Monday May 21 | ABS-CBN News

    Last week, a team interviewing West Virginia guard Jevon Carter at the Chicago pre-Draft combine had what seemed an innocuous question for the hard-nosed point guard: you gonna be ready to play every game, every night, 82 nights a season.
