Video: No. 1 Junior Ivan Rabb Plays Like An NBA Stud

Ivan Rabb

Ivan Rabb is rated the No. 1 junior in the ESPN 60 after clearly separating himself from the competition this season. The 6-9 undeclared forward from Oakland, Calif., gets up and down the floor with ease, and has a habit of embarrassing rejections at the rim.

Kevin Durant, Marc Gasol

We’re pretty sure cardiac arrest is the only possible by-product of the helter-skelter Game 2 between the Grizzlies and Thunder. The Thunder were down five with less than 20 seconds left and most fans believed this series would shortly be tied 1-1. But after a broken play, Russell Westbrook saved the ball from flying out of bounds to Kevin Durant who was covered closely by Marc Gasol in the near corner.
