Perry Ellis, the top draft pick in the 2013 NBA Draft?

By J. Long

Dime Magazine thinks so.

Ellis is profiled in the current issue of Dime Magazine, on newsstands now (Blake Griffin is on the cover).

While I think he’s deserving of the coverage, I don’t know how I feel about them labeling him THE No. 1 draft pick in 2013. That’s a lot of pressure for a kid who just finished his freshman year to carry. Then again, the 6-foot-8 phenom from Heights is probably used to pressure by now, don’t you think?
