Lots of fun goings on at the Draft last night, (read through the amazing 5-hour live-blog if you missed any of it) but this video of Brook Lopez being mic'd up might have been my favorite moment. Seriously, what a tool this guy is. "Oh, it's sooo boring waiting to see how many millions of dollars I'm going to earn over the next three years!" Awesome. Maybe he can work on his personality this summer while he works on his post game.
"LAWRENCE FRANK?!" Someone just bought himself some extra wind sprints his first day of practice.
A few quick trades to report today as we get ready for tomorrow night's draft.
Jermaine O'Neal to the Raptors in exchange for T.J. Ford: Good deal for both clubs. Indiana gets to rebuild with two first-rounders, and Toronto gets to team Chris Bosh and JO together (for at least the 50 games that O'Neal's healthy). Also, solves that silly point guard feud about who should start for the Raps.
The last major event of the season (or the first major event of next season) is upon us, as the NBA Draft takes place this Thursday. Over at FanHouse, we've got you covered with previews for all 30 teams, coming at you 10 per day starting today. So go on, get caught up in the hype, and get yourself ready for the 2008 NBA Draft.
