Dalton Knecht und Reed Sheppard könnten NBA-Draft-Geschichte schreiben

von NFI Redaktion

The current NBA Draft is considered the weakest since the Cleveland Cavaliers wasted the first overall pick on Anthony Bennett. There is no consensus prize or catchy tanking phrase. Only the Detroit Pistons, San Antonio Spurs, Washington Wizards, and Portland Trail Blazers are competing to see who can tank a season the worst. However, there is one overlooked storyline, something that hasn’t happened in 50 years.

If Dalton Knecht and Reed Sheppard are included in the top five, it would be the first time since Bill Walton and Bobby Jones in 1974 that two white Americans are selected in the top five picks.

According to NBADraft.net, Knecht and Sheppard are ranked fourth and fifth in this player pool. Knecht recently led Tennessee to their first SEC regular season title since 2008, while Sheppard captured the hearts of Kentucky fans worldwide. Knecht is a fifth-year player with a diverse career path, while Sheppard is a rising star from Kentucky.

Knecht, a 6-foot guard from Fargo, North Dakota, has seen his stock rise with a strong season, averaging 20 points per game for the fourth-ranked team in the country. Sheppard, a freshman, has impressed with his skills, shooting, and versatility on the court.

The upcoming draft class may not be the strongest, but Knecht and Sheppard offer promise for the future. It will be interesting to see how their careers unfold and if they can defy expectations in the NBA.
