VIDEO: Luka Doncic Explains Why His Favorite Player in NBA Is LeBron James

Dirk Nowitzki, has been the face of the Mavericks franchise for 20 years, and his time with the team is almost at its end. "When they say you're going to be good, I like to be challenged".

The second pick was Duke University's athletic power forward Marvin Bagley III, who went to the Sacramento Kings.

I followed Doncic around the Barclays Center all evening, and the 19-year-old wunderkind really wasn't fazed by anything. With all of that uncertainty comes a lot of trade rumors, because when a team isn't in love with a prospect at their position, they will usually at the very least entertain phone calls from other teams. I've seen a lot of stuff so.

World applauds as Saudi women take the wheel
Since Prince Mohammed assumed power, Saudi Arabia has already lifted bans on women attending movies and music concerts with men. The decision to allow women to drive has been seen as a landmark step that will put them nearly at par with men.

Real Madrid Luka Doncic celebrating the championship during Liga Endesa Finals match (4th game) between Kirolbet Baskonia and Real Madrid at Fernando Buesa Arena in Vitoria, Spain. "The growing consensus among National Basketball Association decision-makers in attendance at Stark Arena in Belgrade is that the teams drafting behind the Phoenix Suns at No. 1 - the Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks - are likely to pass on the European prodigy in favor of American frontcourt players". The center from Arizona averaged 20.1 points and 11.6 rebounds in his lone season in Tucson, tying for the national lead with 24 double-doubles in 35 games. But as ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported Tuesday, Doncic started to separate himself in the Hawks' internal draft conversation.

The presence of Dirk Nowitzki in the latter stages of his career could help make the transition an easier process given that he was once a high draft pick from overseas.

"I don't make predictions but that's the goal", Cuban said. "They can chant Michael Porter all they want".

Online Retailers Lose State Tax Subsidy
Tom Reed, R-N.Y., said he supported the ruling's creation of a level playing field between online sellers and physical retailers. She says prices may go up on her website, but it's important states see tax dollars for online purchases.

Speaking of brothers, Kostas Antetokounmpo of Dayton, brother of Bucks All-Star Giannis Antetokounmpo, was the 60th and final pick by Philadelphia.

After Bridges, Final Four Most Outstanding Player Donte DiVincenzo went to Milwaukee at No. 17 and Omari Spellman to Atlanta at No. 30, giving Villanova three first-round picks for the first time. His father, Sasa Doncic, played professionally for 15 years.

Oil looking oversold heading into latest OPEC meeting
