    In a surprise move, the Orlando Magic made Duke’s Paolo Banchero the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft on Thursday. The 6-foot-10, 250-pound power forward is the fourth No. 1 pick in franchise history, joining Shaquille O’Neal, Chris Webber, and Dwight Howard. Banchero was chosen over early favorites to be taken No. 1: Chet Holmgren (Gonzaga) and Jabari Smith (Auburn). More to come …. ()
    NEW YORK (AP) — The Orlando Magic selected Duke freshman Paolo Banchero on Thursday night with the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft. After leading the Blue Devils to the Final Four in coach Mike Krzyzewski’s final season, the 6-foot-10 forward was called first by NBA Commissioner Adam Silver to begin the draft, beating out fellow first-year forwards Jabari Smith Jr. and Chet Holmgren. Banchero, wearing a purple suit full of bling, received a loud ovation inside Barclays Center, where Duke lost in the ACC Tournament final. The Magic were picking first for the fourth time and they’ve done well with their previous choices. They took Shaquille O’Neal in 1992, traded the rights to Chris Webber for Penny Hardaway the next year, and went with Dwight Howard in 2004. All eventually reached the NBA Finals with the Magic. ___ More AP NBA: https://apnews.com/hub/NBA and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2022 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

    Before the college basketball season even ended, three names have been considered the three prospects expected to draw consideration for the NBA draft’s No. 1 pick: Former Gonzaga big man Chet Holmgren, Auburn forward Jabari Smith Jr. and Duke forward Paolo Banchero. But since the Magic won the draft lottery and the rights to the top pick, most rival executives and scouts have believed Holmgren and Smith will be the first two players drafted, leaving Banchero as the most likely option for the third pick. Smith and Holmgren have been considered the favorites, and at one point the heavy favorites, to be the top-two picks since mid-May but Banchero’s odds to be the top pick have improved significantly this week, according to betonline.com. The argument for the Magic to select Banchero? He may be the closest thing to a go-to offensive option in this draft class. Banchero can score in a myriad of ways — post-ups, lobs, cuts, in transition, off offensive rebounds, off pull-ups from midrange and as a ball handler in the pick and roll. At 6-foot-10 and...
    Getty Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes on January 16, 2022. While at the Kentucky Derby, Martin Brundle of Sky Sports F1 tried to interview Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The problem was: Mahomes wasn’t at the Kentucky Derby. Following the win by 80-1 long shot Rich Strike, many spectators left their seats and took to the track to celebrate the historical victory. While on the track, Brundle spotted who he thought was Mahomes but instead was former Duke basketball star and 2022 NBA Lottery pick, Paolo Banchero. Working his way towards Banchero, Brundle can be heard calling Banchero “Patrick.” Once Banchero engaged with Brundle, Brundle still didn’t realize it was Banchero and not Mahomes. Once Brundle finally realized it wasn’t Mahomes, he quickly became apologetic to Banchero for the mixup. Martin Brundle is killing me man.

    The stars are out in South Florida, as the popular Formula 1 international auto racing series has hit Miami for a history-making event. But one overseas reporter had trouble identifying an American sports star in a hilarious broadcast fail. Sky Sports presenter Martin Brundle tried to track down several celebrities during the pre-race festivities known as the “gridwalk.” At one point, he called out for a man he believed to be Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. “There’s a guy called Patrick Mahomes on the grid who’s a bit of a sporting legend out here, Kansas City Chiefs,” Brundle reported to his audience. Sky Sports is based in the U.K. However, ABC simulcast the Sky broadcast to a U.S. audience — so many on this side of the Atlantic are obviously quite familiar with Patrick Mahomes. Brundle, however, was not, and proceeded to chase down a man who was not the star NFL quarterback. “Patrick!” Brundle called out. “I don’t think he can hear me. Patrick!” The man he was calling after was college basketball star Paolo Banchero, who figured...
    The worlds of Patrick Mahomes and Paolo Banchero collided at the Miami Grand Prix on Sunday thanks to an all-time snafu by F1 reporter Martin Brundle.  It seems redundant to point out, but things happen incredibly fast at an F1 course. Not only is the very nature of the sport blindingly fast, but the need to process information is heightened thanks to the high octane stakes at play. Life also comes at you fast during a Formula 1 event, which is something longtime reporter Martin Brundle found out when he did the one thing no one wants to do: Go viral for the wrong thing. Thankfully this isn’t an old tweets situation, but rather a seasoned pro getting caught in real time being way too far out of his depth. Here’s the situation. Brundle was mingling with the famous faces in attendance for the Miami Grand Prix on Sunday and came across who he accurately recognized as an athlete. Everything after that couldn’t have gone more poorly if Brundle had tried.F1 reporter Martin Brundle thought Paolo Banchero was Patrick MahomesIn...
    The young Duke Blue Devils are still rounding into form late in the season. After beating Miami in the ACC Tournament, Paolo Banchero wants another shot at UNC. The Blue Devils have heard a lot of chatter down Tobacco Road in Chapel Hill’s direction since UNC defeated Duke in Mike Krzyzewski’s final home game. Duke rolled out the red carpet for Coach K, expecting a victory as the Blue Devils are well en route to another No. 1 seed. Instead, the tournament-bound Tar Heels revealed they also had plenty to play for, serving as spoiler. Former Heels players took to social media to take postgame shots at Duke, as well, and a Blue Devils assistant coach refused to shake Hubert Davis’ hand. Safe to say, there would be plenty of fireworks if the rivals met up with very little time gone by since that March 5 matchup.Paolo Banchero challenges UNC, wants a rematchBanchero was one of Duke’s top-rated freshman entering the season, and he has delivered so far this year.
