Yesterday I caught up with two of our good radio friends, 56 Sports Radio in Memphis and "The Odd Couple" 610 Sports Radio in Houston, to break down the NBA Lockout every which way, and offer some analysis on the NBA Draft.
NBA Draft week is no doubt one of the most important times for any aspiring professional basketball player. I caught up with some of the premier prospects as they took in the sights of New York City for suit fittings.
Major news. An organization called Sport England has given preliminary recognition to the World Egg Throwing Federation. There's even talk of making it an Olympic sport one day. I couldn't be more eggcited.
My favorite player in the draft throughout this process has been Washington St.'s Klay Thompson, who has the basketball pedigree, talent and acumen to become a star in this league. At 6'7," he also has the size to play all over the floor.
Tim Shea is one of the most respected members of the international basketball community. Due to the large number of potential international first round picks in this year's NBA Draft we thought we'd get Tim's thoughts on the upcoming draft.
Devoid of top-heavy star power, this first round is perhaps the most challenging one I've ever had to project. Kyrie Irving and Derrick Williams are all but locked in at 1 and 2, but after that, it's anyone's guess.
