NBA Draft Night Thoughts

The NBA draft is always one of the more interesting nights of the year, to say the least. Players celebrate with their families and shady middlemen. GM's smart and dumb rack up phone bills that would give Bill Gates financial problems. David Stern brings out his Big Brother alter-ego. The comedy (mostly unintentional) runs sky high.

Too bad by the time they re-learn how to play basketball hedo turkoglu will be busy getting overpaid by about 4 million/year, probably by another team (please don't let it be my trail blazers. just get raymond felton and marvin williams at 2/3 the price and move on). But nobody wants to talk about that right now! lets mock...
