The New Orleans Pelicans have won the first pick in the 2019 NBA Draft and the right to select Zion Williamson, whom everyone is predicting will be chosen at that spot. Memphis moved up to second, New York settles for third, and the Lakers moved up to fourth. Tanking will no longer work, apparently!

However, The Athletic's Shams Charania is reporting that the Pelicans' Anthony Davis has not changed his stance on his trade demand, which astonishes me. He must really want to go to New York. (By the way, isn't that a compelling picture of Davis in that article? He's all, "HELL NO, I wanna go!")

Do you figure a straight-up swap of Davis for the #3 pick (and presumably Zion's Duke teammate R.J. Barrett) is in the future? That'd be interesting to see. The Pelicans and Knicks would both be very compelling to watch, especially if New York can seal the deal with Kevin Durant.

Having already gone Fo Fo Fo, I think it's possible the Warriors do another Fo and go 16-0 to cap off their revenge season. Realistically though, Irving will have at least one huge game. So will Lebron. So I will say Warriors in six.
