LOS ANGELES — A producer at Fox Sports Studios on Thursday commanded the attention of a star-studded room: more than two dozen retired NBA players, including a handful of Hall-of-Famers, on hand for the second BIG3 Draft.

“This isn’t the NFL draft,’’ the producer said, urging the assembled players to have fun on a night when eight of the nine teams in the 3-on-3 basketball league selected 19 players in three rounds.

No one will mistake what transpired for the NFL Draft.

  The 2018 NFL Draft’s biggest boom-or-bust first-round prospects Despite all of the scouting, workouts and film study that talent evaluators have been devoting to college prospects in recent months (and years), the NFL Draft is famously a crapshoot. Let’s take a look at the top NFL Draft prospects who are most high-risk/high-reward in 2018’s annual player selection meeting.

A recap of the good, the bad and the ugly helps explain why:

THE GOOD: Rick Barry, the NBA Hall-of-Famer who is coach of the BIG3’s Ball Hogs, put on mirrored sunglasses before announcing the first pick.

“OK, brothers, here we go,’’ he said, drawing laughter in a room where he was one of the few white men.

Can you imagine Bill Belichick adjusting his shades before announcing the New England Patriots pick in this year’s draft?

Michael Rapaport, a roving analyst, drew laughs (and a few groans) while host Charissa Thompson complemented league co-founder Ice Cube and maintained (relative) order.

Nancy Lieberman: “I almost liken Ice Cube to Mark Cuban; he’s a culture-changer”

  Nancy Lieberman: “I almost liken Ice Cube to Mark Cuban; he’s a culture-changer” Nancy Lieberman is no stranger to making history. In 1976, she won a silver medal in the first Olympics to include women's basketball as an event. After playing in NBA-affiliated men's summer leagues, she was the first woman to play in a professional men's league (the United States Basketball League) in 1986. In 2009, she became the first woman to coach a pro men's basketball team when she took over as head coach of the NBA G-League's Texas Legends.

THE BAD: With the third pick of the draft, Charles Oakley, coach of the Killer 3s, announced the team was taking “Alan Anthony.’’

Eyebrows arched. Double-takes rippled through the room. There is no Alan Anthony playing in the BIG3 — or playing pro ball, as far as we know.

Oakley meant Alan Anderson, a 6-foot-6 swingman who last suited up for the Lakeland Magic of the NBA’s G League.

Can you imagine Pete Carroll showing up and giving the wrong name before announcing the Seattle Seahawks’ first pick?

THE UGLY: Fox Sports 1’s cameras showed about two dozen players squirming before they discovered they had gone undrafted. Those players made a quick exit off the set. Among the spurned: Josh Powell, a big man who won NBA championship rings as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers in 2009 and 2010.
