One of the things we really enjoy about the NBA draft is the gamesmanship and manipulation that takes place. It’s all a bit of Games of Throne-ish really.

We may have seen that this week with Michael Porter as the talented Missouri forward, who missed almost the entire season, is rumored to have had some serious issues which made it difficult for him to get out of bed.

It could be. Or it could be his camp, or a particular team, which is trying to push him down the draft.

It’s highly entertaining to watch these people manipulate each other.

On the other hand, you periodically see a guy rise on his own merit and win genuine admiration. That appears to be the case with Raleigh native and BC product Jerome Robinson.

There are some people now who think he could go just outside the lottery. That’s a big improvement.

Best of all, a lot of it is down to his character. What could be better than that?
