The Denver Nuggets are selecting Nah’Shon “Bones” Hyland with the 26th pick in the NBA Draft. Hyland was the A10 Player of the Year this past season.

Not only does Hyland have the best name in the draft, but he is also a really good basketball player. Hyland played two seasons at VCU and put together a phenomenal sophomore season averaging 19.5 points per game. There is no doubt Hyland can score the basketball as he shot 37.1 percent from three on 7.8 attempts per game. From the field, Hyland shot 44.7 percent and was a scorching 86.2 percent from the free throw line.
