The most anxiety inducing ten minutes of the NBA season is now over, the NBA-owned New Orleans Hornets have won the top choice in the draft and will be selecting Kentucky’s Anthony Davis in June. Color me shocked, conspiracies abound. Anyway, here is Chad Ford’s new updated Mock Draft. The Wizards had the second best odds in the draft but fell to the third spot. Honestly, this is almost insignificant and might end up being a good thing for the team. Allow me to venture through tonight’s implications:
Over the years, most NBA fans look forward to silly things like the NBA playoffs in the months of May and June but not us Wizards fans! The biggest days of the year for us are the draft lottery and the NBA draft itself. Well tonight is one of those nights as the NBA draft lottery is tonight at 8 PM EST on ESPN, right before the Heat/Celtics game at 8:30. For those who are going to watch I will warn you that there is basically no point in tuning in until 8:20 because they wait until the very last-minute to do the 2 minute lottery process and there is nothing more frustrating than watching ESPN tease you every few minutes only to continually go to commercials.
