Greetings, friends! I’m here to kick off the live blog for the 2012 NBA Draft, but, perhaps, like Jack Nicholson in The Shining, I’ve always been here. That’s a thing from that movie right? I’m rather excited for this Draft. Sure, the number one pick has been clear for months, and the New Orleans Hornets will be taking Anthony Davis with much joy. After that, things get interesting.
While there could easily be a trade high in the Draft, with Charlotte in particular looking to trade out of the second pick, if there isn’t I think the picks will be: Charlotte – Thomas Robinson, Washington – Bradley Beal, Cleveland – Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. Were I making those picks, I’d probably do the same thing for every team. From the fifth pick on, however, I have little to no clue what is going to happen. All I know is that I hope Andre Drummond falls to the Pistons.
I’ll be here from now until the bitter end of tonight’s Draft, so feel free to hang around. Bring your questions, comments, and concerns. It should be a fun night.
