Authentic Walt Tkaczuk Jersey The 2018 NFL Scouting Combine hosts 330 of the top players in this year’s NFL Draft class and tests them mentally, psychologically and physically. The mental aspect of the Combine process, done through interviews with NFL team decision-makers, can play a major role in a prospect’s success in Indianapolis.
The NFL Combine serves as a way to test prospects in a series of six predetermined athletic drills that highlight speed, quickness, strength, agility, flexibility and explosiveness. Each drill serves a unique purpose and may be considered more or less significant based on the player’s position.
While the Lakers were the story on Thursday, opponent Dwyane Wade turned in his second consecutive throwback game with 25 points (11-18 FG, 2-2 FT), 3 rebounds, 3 assists and 1 3-pointer.

I mentioned yesterday that LeBron was facing one of his stylistic descendants, Ben Simmons, and that James typically gets the better of those matchups. He did that again on Thursday, but Simmons’ team came out on top overall with a balanced effort. Joel Embiid dominated the middle, scoring only 17 points (7-18 FG, 3-8 FT) but adding 14 rebounds, 6 assists and 1 blocked shot. Simmons almost notched a triple-double with 18 points, 9 rebounds, 8 assists, 2 steals and 1 blocked shot. JJ Redick led the team with 22 points and four 3-pointers, while Dario Saric Marc-Edouard Vlasic Youth jersey and Robert Covington were right near double-doubles as the support starters. This shows how balanced and difficult to defend the 76ers can be when they work as a unit.

Johnson is inconsistent, but he’s still the closest thing talent-wise that the Pistons have to a third option right now behind Blake Griffin and Andre Drummond.
