    Found out that draft pick Laquavius Cotton was the 2015 college slam dunk champion and also drafted by the Harlem Globetrotters.

    Turns out pretty much every year the Globetrotters draft the college slam dunk champion, but thats still a pretty cool distinction.

    I wonder if Rockets tried to sign Nick Johnson to Vipers.
