As if it could be anyone else. UConn guard Shabazz Napier, who was named Final Four MVP following Connecticut’s 60-54 win over, has landed on this week’s cover of Sports Illustrated.
Napier improved his NBA Draft stock during the tournament. During Monday’s national championship game, LeBron James tweeted in support of the point guard.
No way u take another PG in the lottery before Napier.

Could the Celtics take Napier with their second pick of the first round?
