    Default Official 2008 NBA Draft Thread

    ESPN's Andy Katz has reported that the Bulls will select Derrick Rose at #1.

    Should be a crazy night...

    I wish TNT was hosting the draft.

    Bring on Ernie, Kenny, Charles, Magic and Reggie. They're so much better than these clowns it's not funny. I do like Bilas but Van Gundy and MJackson are horrible.

    Tonight's ESPN team is already making me cringe.

    NFL draft was lame for like 5 picks with having no drama as the pick was already set before the announcement

    Yes, the commentary is going to be awful. They havent talked about anything past the 5th pick in the last week. I don't know what the hell they're going to do when we get to the 2nd round.

    Van Gundy is terrific.

    Oh my god, Vitale and Scott and then now STEPHEN A SMITH! As soon as we finish hearing from these players I'm muting the damn thing. Just not worth it. My god.

    However Mayo looks classy as hell tonight.

    And as we're complaining about ESPN's broadcasters, they bring on air an interviewing tandem of Doris Burke and Stephen A. Smith...

    Beasley needs an interview coach as well. Got to present yourself better than that if you want some good endorsement deals.

    OJ Mayo is about as smooth as it gets. He's going to do some great things in the L. He just has that presence.

    And for the record, I think Mayo is going to have a decisively more accomplished NBA career than Rose. People have fallen in love with Rose and his overall athletic ability and his desire to win, but his tangible basketball skills are still very much a work in progress.

    It is rumored that Pat Riley wanted Rudy Gay, Michael Conley Jr and pick 5 in exchange for pick 2, but that is unlikely to happen. Chances are that the Heat remain at 2 and will take Beasley.

    Is Pat smoking some stuff or what.. if he got Gay and Conley for # 2 that would be a decent trade in itself...

    Van Gundy is certainly not terrific. He claims Beasley is already a "Hall of Famer" in the making.

    Draft night is the perfect arena for hyperbole... These analysts can claim everything they want to and they won't be proven wrong for several months, if not years.

    Jackson and Van Gundy never actually add anything to the conversation, it's just generic agreement with each other.

    I like Van Gundy and MJackson isn't so bad.. but Gundy definitely isn't horrible. Charles would be a great host for the draft. I like all of the TNT guys, they should do the draft next season.

    None of them really go out on a limb, I’d like to know which presenters actually spend time doing research them selves, Steven A likes to talk loud but he does talk to people in places, has Mark or Jeff actually watched a couple games of say Mayo to be able to convert some individual thoughts

    I agree that SAS is a decent interviewer. I will hold my tongue on the rest of my thoughts.
