  • NBA Draft - What did you thnk?

    No news for the Nuggs, but an exciting night to say the least. Gotta love the 5min/2min draft times, wish the NFL would do that. Obviously Portland/Seattle had great drafts, don't know why the Bobcats made that trade (#8 Brandon Wright for Jason Richardson) and the Celtics looked like the clowns they usually do (although Geln Davis could work out well for them). Some interesting value picks in the late 1st & 2nd for very good teams, gotta love San Antonio getting Tiago Splitter w/ the 28th and then grabbing Marcus Williams early in the 2nd. The Mavs grabbing Nick Fazekas early in the 2nd I thought was a great pick. The Knicks/Blazers trade looks to help out both squads. What did you all think?

    NFL needs to speed up the picks. That is the only thing the nba has over the NFL in my opinion.
