Zion Has His Destination! What's Next?

Congratulations to the New Orleans Pelicans, who won the first overall pick in the 2019 NBA draft! The Pelicans had only a 6% of receiving the number one pick, and boy, if you are going to beat the odds, this was the year to do it!

The number one pick will, without a doubt, be Zion Williamson. This probably wasn't the destination that most of the basketball world was hoping for him to end up at – the teams with the highest odds to land the pick were the Knicks, Cavs, and Suns, so their hopes were up pretty high.

However, no such luck for suffering franchises, who ended up with the 3rd, 5th, and 6th picks. Unfortunately for the Cavs and Suns, the draft class considerably drops off after the top three picks of Zion, Ja Morant, and RJ Barrett, so the Knicks should still be able to get a very quality player with the third pick.

But now to the Pelicans, who are in a bit of pickle on where to go next. The Pelicans have Anthony Davis right now, who is an incredible player and has done great things for the team, but this past January, he has insisted on a trade. As far as rumors go, the Pelicans win with getting Zion still hasn't been enough for Davis to reconsider staying in New Orleans. This I am not surprised by, considering Davis and Williamson play the same position, and the Pelicans still aren't known as a reputable franchise.

There was speculation that if the Knicks received the number one pick, they would trade Zion to the Pelicans for AD, but now the Pelicans have lucked out with getting Zion without the help of another team. This puts the Pelicans in a much better position than they originally were, and so, they should be able to lure more talent out to New Orleans. Lucky for them, even if AD still leaves, they will be left with a superstar. So either way, the future is looking very bright for the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.

Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
