The NBA Draft is Thursday. With the Cavs having no picks and the top two picks about as debatable does Pacman like strippers, I’m struggling to find something that will intrigue me about this draft. Sure the picks 3-17 and beyond are about as predictable as Mike Tyson’s next money making move but that’s not enough for me.
Yeah, there’s all the trade talk. KG going to LA or Phoenix, Marion or Amare leaving the Suns, nobody wanting to go to Boston, but what are the chances of that happening. Boston already said they aren’t trading their No. 5 pick, Phoenix would be stupid to trade Amare and KG has been wanting a trade for like 18 years now. I just have a feeling nothing major is going to happen, just like at the trade deadline. All these teams talk about a big trade but no one will pull it off when the time comes.
There aren’t even any crazy named foreigners in the draft to make crowd go “who did David Stern just introduce?” and the player who’s name it was looks around the green room at the other foreigners until they finally agree it was him.
I’ve read so much stuff on the draft I feel it has already happened. I feel the same way about the draft as I do about ‘Live Free or Die Hard.’ I was excited for it until everyone over-played, over-wrote, and over-talked about it. I’ve seen so many mock drafts and none have been the same. Only the top two picks. I was going to do my own but I just don’t care anymore and I don’t want to bore you with it.
About the only thing exciting about this draft is seeing what crazy dance Joakim Noah will do and what player free falls like Brady Quinn.
The draft is supposedly the deepest and most talented it’s been in ages and the only thing I want to see happen is someone trip when they walk on stage. How has that not happened in the years of all the drafts?
