NBA Draft Outcome, Denzel Valentine, Deyonta Davis, Omari Sankofa, Carlton Valentine, Matt Costello, and One-and-Done's.

Just yesterday, Deyonta Davis was a possible top-ten draft pick. Now, the 31st overall pick in the draft faces intense scrutiny for coming out after one year. Al and engineer Isaac Constans discuss whether or not it was fair and rehash their memories from the night. Following that, Omari Sankofa, Sports Illustrated contributor, joins the show from New York to describe his takeaways from the night, including who had the best style. And finally, the father of the man of the hour, Carlton Valentine, makes time in his busy day to describe just what it was like to see a Valentine announced as an NBA player.
