    Default NBATV starts showing classic drafts 11:30 Sunday night

    They start with 1981, highlighted by Isiah Thomas and Mark Aguirre.

    Always a lot of fun to re-live some of the drafts.

    I went to the draft when it was held in Indy back in '94. Man was it BORING to sit there. I guess part of it is that I wasn't rooting for anyone. I wasn't a Glenn Robinson fan, so him getting picked didn't excite me. I wasn't too keen on Montross. I think Kidd was the only pick that interested me. I think I left befoe the first round was over.

    That being said, I think this year's draft is way more interesting than that one was. Once again, I wish I had NBATV
    Hey! What're you kicking me for? You want me to ask? All right, I'll ask! Ma'am, where do the high school girls hang out in this town?

    I'll find it and bump it for you.

    I missed half the drafts because of work. I'm especially mad I missed 1986. I could have gotten at least 5 pages out of that draft alone.

    I'm so mad that I took all of monday off so I could watch it.

    Well, actually, I didn't things just worked out that way....

    I'll definately be recording the ones I didnt record last year, and thus I'll probably add some commentary of my own here....

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    You mean we get to re-live the drafts where we get to see the Pacers pass up on several players that could have made a difference? I can't wait for the one where we drafted Bender

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    Technically they did, but the deal was made before the pick and Toronto picked him because the Pacers told them to.

    Pacers select Wayman Tisdale and the MSA crowd goes bananas. George Irvine just said the Pacers choose Wayman over Benoit.

    The guy interviewing Irvine just said the pacers are on the verge of something big

    George wasn't the brightest basketball mind, was he?

    I'd rather re-read Bill Simmons' annual draft reviews than re-watch the drafts themselves.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I just looked through the schedule and did not see the 96 draft anywhere.

    I think it is on at 3PM, 7PM, and 1 AM every day on the Jermaine O'Neal channel.

    That's part of a new direct TV package. One channel for each of the 40 guys who consider themselves top 10 players.

    The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)

    Blab was just taken right after Bill Wennington, Joe Kline, Jon Kancak. Wow talk about a bunch of white stiffs. Wathcing these drafts and then seeing how they mostly bombed is the reason why I don't like drafting white stiffs today.

    All those players taken before Dumars

    The Mavs had guarenteed Dumars they would draft him, but Blab slipped, so they decided to take him instead.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.
