Leonard Floyd Game Jersey On January 22, 2006, Kobe Bryant dropped 81 points on the Raptors, and he did most of his damage while Jalen Rose was guarding him. Toronto’s coach at the time, Sam Mitchell, wouldn’t put a double team on Bryant, so Rose ended up getting embarassed most of the game.
As time has passed, Bryant dropping 81 on Rose has become an internet meme of sorts. Lakers fans, or Rose haters, will often send tweets at the former basketball player reminding him of that game. He typically responds with a block, as many have experienced.

If the Celtics end up staying at No. 3 鈥?more on that in a minute 鈥?it seems likely the team will pick between Jayson Tatum or Josh Jackson.

With Ball seeming to be a likely pick by the Lakers at No. 2 鈥?and the fact that, per Adam Himmelsbach, the Celtics’ depth in the backcourt played a role in the trade 鈥?Jackson and Tatum are the two guys to watch. They are No. 2 and No. 3 on my board here at Sporting News.
Regardless of the pick at No. 3, this might be a risky deal for the Celtics from a value perspective due to the protections on the future pick they acquired and the cluster of bad teams currently in the NBA. Sure, this could be the No. 3 pick this year and the No. 2 pick next season if things broke right, but it could be much worse.
