2015 Draft Night Live Commentary


Alright now that Adam Silver's hum-drum pre-draft speech is over My T-Wolves are now on the CLOCK!!!

Calvin Booth in the Green Room, no sign of Flip or my main man Milt but I do see Babcock (thanks for those gopher basketball staff seats).

1. Karl-Anthony Towns: YES! Wolves Get their Cornerstone Center for the next 10 years. Both Karl and his father are well spoken.   Finally a draft hat that could actually be worn on the street.

Ok ok as excited I am about the Towns finally becoming a Wolf I can't wait to see What the Lake Show decides...

2. ITS....RUSSELL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Love Russell's passing ability but come on... Rubio's passes are on a whole other level

Ok Can't wait for the 76ers to take Poringis... lol...Nah.... it has to Be Okafor...Right???

 So what do we think the Celtics "Godfather Offer" is if 76ers select Okafor???????

I'm going with #9 #28, 2016 1st round picks from Dallas and Cleveland, and 2018 Celtics and Nets first rounders. Plus (yes there is a plus) Marcus Smart and Tyler Zeller.

3. Sixers did the Smart thing in selecting Jalil Okafor now how long till we hear what they'll be getting from the Celtics?

Ah the wire hanger hoop a staple in the young ballers earlier training regiment.

Knicks are up...I'm liking what I hear from Rose and Williams about how Justise Winslow should be there guy.

4. Ahhh Fuck of course! Everyday I am thankful that I am not a Knicks fan.

5.  NYK save Orlando by selecting Porzingis. The Magic selection of Mario gets my approval even though I think Winslow would have been a great fit.

6. WOW they passed on Mudiay???? I'm guessing Cousins made that pick. Bye George Karl

7. MUDIAY, Denver knows whats up. Que the shot of the Detroit war room collectively throwing the nearest inanimate objects at their television.

8. WOW with Winslow seemly failing into their laps and yet they stick to their guns and take Stanley Johnson. Look for the Pistons' playoff aspirations stall out yet again with this solid yet blah pick.

9. Ok if I'm Charlotte I back out of the rumored Boston deal and run my draft card with Justise Winslow's name on it up the Commish. I know people love Frank but not good value.

Live Draft Commentary

1. Anthony Davis - Never any Question here.

2. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist - WOW! Not a bad pick cause personally I never thought the potential Cleveland trade was that great of a deal for the Cats. I guess since MJ has gone for the risky potential based prospects in the past he deiced to go with a solid hardworking team first guy.

3. Bradley Beal - The Wizards are now a watchable team, no longer will I pass them up on NBA League Pass. What a potent backcourt Washington possesses just imagine what they could accomplish if Wall ever develops a jump shot.

4. Dion Waiters - So the Rumors had more merit than I had thought. Personally I'm not very high on this player both he and Beal have become way over hyped in the last 3 weeks. While I expect Beal to have become a better player in the league, Waiters will follow a Stucky/Crawford/Thorton Career Arc.

5. Thomas Robinson - Sacramento's Roster is starting to come together now. Is there a stronger front court in the league than Robinson and Cousins? I still give them 2 years before they are ready to enter the Western Conference Playoff race.

6. Damian Lillard - With Barnes on the Board they go Lillard, I wouldn't have been able to pass on Barnes myself. Lillard better have Westbrook's thank you letter in the mail because without his recent success GMs would not value undersized scoring guards so much.

7. Harrison Barnes - Best Value Pick! Warriors were looking desperately to trade this pick for a SF yet the Best SF in the draft falls to them. Imagine the small ball lineup of Curry, Klay, Barnes, Wright, and Lee. Now thats a group that will be able to space the floor. There is no reason why they shouldn't get an open shot after making at least 3 passes.

8. Terrence Ross - Not good when the best the ESPN taking heads conclude that Ross is "Not a bad pick". Too much like DeRozan and will play more like Wes Johnson.

At this point i bet Detroit trades this pick (which will be Drummond) to Hou for 12th and 18th picks

9. Andre Drummond - Well the pick was easy to call...time will tell who he plays for.

10. Austin Rivers - is PG in his future? or is this just insurance if Gordon bolts? Either way the Hornets have now added two future starts to a roster relatively void of NBA talent.

11. Meyers Leonard - Most likely to be forgotten 3 years from now ala Robert Swift and B.J. Mullins. Did nothing in College, doesn't love the game... another 7 footer passing through the league.
