The time has come once again! It’s time for the NBA Draft and I couldn’t be happier. We did this last year and if you want to know what you’re getting into, here’s last years. I love watching college basketball and I love the NBA; combine the two and I’ve got a half-chub. This year’s draft has the chance to be a great one. I think we’re going to see a ridiculous amount of trades, a LOT of bad picks and DICK VITALE AND STEPHEN A. SMITH YELLING AT EACH OTHER! I’m actually skipping PBJT’s last softball game of the year in order to be here and I’m sure my counterparts will be joining after they get a big win and grab a few post-game brews. I, too, will be drinking heavily throughout so things may get interesting around 9PM. Enjoy, people.
6:15 – We’re about an hour and fifteen minutes out from actual draft time (don’t let ESPN fool you with their Preview show coming on at 7). It’s pretty apparent the Bulls are going to take Derrick Rose at #1. The #2 pick is where things could get really interesting. I am hoping the Heat trade the pick, mainly because I don’t like the Heat and want them to rue the day they passed on Beasley for the next decade as he dominates the league. I also think OJ Mayo may end up being the best player in the draft when things are all said and done. The Lopez twins scare the hell out of me… and not from a basketball standpoint. They scare me in a “homo-incest” kind of way. DeAndre Jordan is a guaranteed bust, as is anyone from Nevada or Rider (I’m talking to you, Javale McGee and Jason Thompson). I just saw ESPN’s desk at the draft and there was no Vitale or Stephen A. Could the Lord be shining on this night already? I’ve got to make a beer run.
7:16 – Dammit, I walk in from the beer run (The longest beer run in history, also, I went with my mom. True story.) and the first peron I see on the screen is Stephen A. Oh well, even he can’t ruin this night for me. Let me also go on the record saying I think Portland is going to package their two picks to move up in the draft. Indiana should be trying to do the same. Twelve minutes until Derrick Rose’s mother starts crying and fanning herself uncontrollably!
7:24 – Colleen Dominguez is really sexy. Wendy Nix… not so much.
7:26 – Fran Fraschilla just said the Knicks don’t have a lot of history with international players. Um, they drafted Frederic Weis didn’t they?
7:29 – The “New Loaded Special” from Burger King scares me. Loaded baked potato on top of a burger? And they’re showing this on ESPN? Nothing like a few clogged arteries to get me wanting to watch sports!
7:32 – The Bulls are going to select Derrick Rose first overall. I can’t say enough how bad of an idea it is bringing a guy back to his hometown to play professional basketball. Oh… he’ll never be able to find anyone to go out with in Chicago, will he? As always, I select Blake Lively first overall as, “Female Most Likely to Be My Wife.
Okay, I’ve put a picture of one hot girl on here, hopefully that’s enough to have you keep reading. More after the jump… (more…)
