1. New Orleans: Anthony Davis, Kentucky. There’s been so little discussion about Davis because he’s the consensus No. 1, if not personally exciting. When Rose was top pick there still was debate about whether the pick would be Michael Beasley. When LeBron was No. 1, there was discussion about LeBron because many thought he was the king of England. Davis …

It is said that history often repeats itself and on June 28 at the 2012 NBA Draft, it will happen once again if Commissioner David Stern announces Anthony Davis as the first pick.

It was four years ago when Derrick Rose, a Chicago kid who earned McDonald’s All-American honors as a senior before playing one season of college basketball for …

You don’t get to jump up from No. 29, but it wasn’t a bad night for the Bulls in Wednesday’s NBA Draft Lottery.

The New Orleans Hornets hit the jackpot by jumping up from No. 4 and will get the chance to select Chicagoan Anthony Davis, the 6-10 center from the University of Kentucky.

Davis is regarded as a potential …

I’d grade the Bulls draft pretty well, though incomplete for now given we won’t know for a few years what they have in Nikola Mirotic, the 6-10 scoring forward from Montenegro whom the Bulls acquired for their Nos. 28 and 43 picks.

So they add for their roster just Marquette’s Jimmy Butler, a rugged big/guard small forward defender.

And the …

Below is my pick-by-pick reaction to the 2011 NBA Draft as it unfolded live on June 23.

1. Cleveland: Kyrie Irving As expected. I still have my doubts, though not because I dislike Irving. The tactic, to me, was to pick Derrick Williams and get a point guard at 4, either Knight or Irving as Minnesota isn’t taking a point …

The Bulls Thursday on the night of the NBA draft took another step toward the potential recruitment of a top free agent like LeBron James with a tentative trade to send Kirk Hinrich and the No. 17 pick in the draft to the Washington Wizards, sources close to both teams confirmed.

The Wizards would not be sending anything back to …

Former Kentucky star and likely No. 1 pick in the 2010 NBA Draft John Wall does not believe his college coach, John Calipari, will leave for another job.

Despite his denials, rumors have surfaced that Calipari may have an interest in the Bulls’ head coaching vacancy. But Wall doesn’t see it happening.

“Coach Cal is a guy that a lot …

While it probably wasn’t all that necessary, former Kentucky guard John Wall made his case to be the top pick in the 2010 NBA Draft on June 24 when speaking at the NBA Draft Combine in Chicago on Thursday.

“I’m a competitive person,” said Wall. “I want to win and I’m not selfish. I’ll try to help my organization win. …

Over 50 prospects for this summer’s NBA Draft are in Chicago this week for the 2010 NBA Draft Combine. Workouts are being held at Attack Athletics on the city’s West Side and are closed to the media, but players are being made available at a downtown hotel.

Thursday morning’s first group was headlined by former Ohio State star and consensus …

What do you suppose LeBron James said Tuesday when he watched the NBA Draft Lottery and saw the No. 1 pick, expected to be Kentucky guard John Wall, go to the Washington Wizards and the 70-loss New Jersey Nets fall to No. 3?

I assume he said he wasn’t going to any franchise with that kind of luck and would …
