How do you deliver a "googly" or make chin music? What are a beamer, a flipper, a corker, and a jaffa? What do a bunny, a cherry, a dolly and a royal golden duck have to do with sports?

The 6-foot-4, 195-pound guard is still the favorite to go No. 1 and would be a Wooden Award favorite if his team were better. It’s not a slam dunk, but Fultz’s smooth style, versatility and lack of a glaring weakness make him the top pick for most GMs. Malik Monk SG | KENTUCKY (NO. 6) Monk is the best pure scorer on the board—his 47 points against UNC was the most against the Tar Heels in 64 years. His range and athleticism are a rare combination, but h
