Browns Select Mayfield, Giants Grab Barkley, Allen To Bills, Greek Freak Saves Bucks, Curry Questionable

FOOTBALL

After months of speculation, we can now rest easy knowing the first round picks in the NFL draft.  The Cleveland Browns shocked many when they selected Heisman trophy winning quarterback from Oklahoma, Baker Mayfield. The New York Giants grabbed running back Saquon Barkley with pick #2.  The New York Jets moved up three spots to take USC quarterback Sam Darnold. The Browns were up with the #4 pick and added Ohio State cornerback Denzel Ward. Rounding out the top 5, the Denver Broncos contributed to their defense by selecting defensive end, Bradley Chubb.

After QB Josh Allen spent the day before the draft apologizing for offensive tweets he made when he was in high school, his high draft prospects looked questionable. The Buffalo Bills, however, traded up with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to grab Allen with the #7th spot.

BASKETBALL

With 31 points and 14 rebounds from the “Greek Freak” Giannis Antetokounmpo, the Milwaukee Bucks beat the Boston Celtics and forced a game seven. After Antetokounmpo couldn’t get a table at BelAir Cantina earlier this week, the restaurant chain is offering free tacos today at any of their Wisconsin locations.

Steph Curry participated in his first full practice after sitting out from an ACL injury. If all goes well in practice, coach Steve Kerr said Curry could be back for game one of the Western Conference semifinals against the New Orleans Pelicans Saturday night.
