The day has finally arrived. No more talk about potential landing spots, hypothetical situations or, my least favorite word in the world, UPSIDE.

Yes, the 2014 NBA Draft is finally here and we’ve already seen some trades around the Western Conference that could have a huge impact on what happens tonight. With the Dallas Mavericks, New York Knicks, New Orleans Pelicans, Houston Rockets, Orlando Magic and Denver Nuggets already making moves, we could expect to see a number of trades throughout the night, big or small.

Throughout the entirety of the draft, we will be posting all of the picks from both rounds, trades that happen during the night and giving grades for each pick as they come in. Below in the comment section, our writers will be interacting with readers and giving their thoughts and insights to the goings ons as well. We encourage participation and would love to hear your thoughts on what is going on, whether you hate a pick or love it, let us know in the comment section.

The draft kicks off at 7 p.m. EST. While you’re waiting, make sure to check out our last mock draft and our player profiles for each of the top prospect in the 2014 draft.

We’ll get things started about half an hour before the draft begins in the comment section and we welcome you to join us as we dissect this crazy draft we are sure to have.

Let the Adam Silver era of the draft begin!

  • thomas rickard

    Going to be a long 2hr waiting, feels like when I was a kid waiting for the bell to ring

    • Nathan Giese

      No kidding. One of the most exciting and crazy nights in the league. I LOVE IT!

      • thomas rickard

        As a laker fan, last time I’ve been this excited about draft was 79, lakers needed help real bad, 94 we needed help but couldn’t expect much, this year there’s so many great picks, even at 7 it’s going to be hard to choose

        • Guest

          What are the Lakers’ chances on landing Embiid?

          • Nathan Giese

            I recon it’s the equivalent to the name of a famous cigarette lighter company.

          • Michael Dunlap

            I actually don’t think it’s going to be that big of a longshot. If he can get to No. 6 and Smart/Embiid are both there, I’d think the Celtics take Smart and the Lakers have a shot.

          • Danny Webster

            I caught something that says the Sixers want Embiid. At No. 3. They love players who can’t play.

          • Mauricio Putz

            True. They’d take Embiid and Randle if they could.

          • thomas rickard

            It hard to believe he drops to 7, and even then I’m not sure the Lakers should, I haven’t gotten basketball cards in 15 years, but I think I’ll get some for my grandkids

    • Michael Dunlap

      Does that mean it’s only a minute away? Because that last minute felt like 2 hours in school.

      • Nathan Giese

        especially the last day before christmas break.

  • Danny Webster

    20 minutes left, Cavs still have no clue what they’re doing.

    • Trevor Magnotti

      This is actually not true! Cavaliers have made their decision and are not releasing it before the draft. Left the war room about 20 minutes ago.

      • Mauricio Putz

        I’m sorry but after last year’s Draft I refuse to believe the Cavs know what they’re doing.

        • Danny Webster

          As a UNLV student, I agree with you.

          • Michael Dunlap

            They’re going to crack and take Embiid or something.

          • Guest

            What if they took Embiid, hoping the Timberwolves keep Love for the 2015 summer. Stash Embiid for the season, get him healthy and make a run at Love in a year?

          • Mauricio Putz

            What if they take Embiid, hoping the Timberwolves keep Love for the 2015 summer. Stash Embiid for the season, get him healthy and make a run at Love in a year?

  • Mauricio Putz

    I’m gonna miss David Stern soaking it in when the boos come on.

    • Michael Dunlap

      No doubt. I hope Silver gives us the Hulk Hogan ear cup…

  • Nathan Giese

    IT’S GOING DOWN. WE’RE YELLING DRAFT NIIIGGHHTT. TEAMS MAKE MOVES. MAKIN’ YOU DANCE.

    • Danny Webster

      I just heard Kesha sing this in my head. Not good, man.

      • Michael Dunlap

        I like that song…but that version is horrible. PLAYOFFS PLAYOFFS

        • Nathan Giese

          That’s why I made it better. MUUUCCH BETTAAAHHHH

          • Michael Dunlap

            True Story: They play that song at every Suns home game. I had heard it probably 50 times before I knew that was the song everyone hated. I kinda like it.

          • Nathan Giese

            Is great song. Except for the Pitbull part. He’s awful

      • Nathan Giese

        You’re right, that’s not good. THAT’S AWESOME!

    • Mauricio Putz

      BURN. IT. WITH. FIRE.

      • Nathan Giese

        DON’T STOP. MAKE IT POP. DJ BLOW MY SPEAKERS UP.

  • Trevor Magnotti

    Who’s everyone’s favorite prospect? I’m very much attached to Clint Capela. Think he’s the next Larry Sanders (pre-trainwreck)

    • Nathan Giese

      Kyle freaking Anderson. Also Nik STauskas

      • Trevor Magnotti

        I have bigtime reservations about Stauskas’s athleticism, but Anderson’s going to be solid.

    • Michael Dunlap

      I’m intrigued by Exum. Thinking he could be the next Marko Jaric (complete with HOT HOT HOT wife) or he could be Rondo with some offense.

    • Shawn Mcfarland

      Kyle Anderson, T.J. Warren, and I’ve really come around as of late on Noah Vonleh.

  • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

    So how long until the Cavs take Zach LaVine with the No. 1 pick? #DoItForLaVine

    • Michael Dunlap

      T-minus 10:35

    • Nathan Giese

      It’s not about the player, it’s about the message.

    • Danny Webster

      Such a Cavs thing to do.

  • Mauricio Putz

    “Let’s just get this over with”. – Every Cavaliers Fan

  • Chris Walton

    Less than 2 minutes left!

  • Danny Webster

    Cavs to use No. 1 pick on two cokes and some chips, look to use as leverage for LeBron, sources confirm.

  • Nathan Giese

    I don’t get hyped….I STAY HYPED!

  • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

    Glad Adam Silver got cheered at the draft. Dude deserves it after the last few months. #NotSoStern

    • Nathan Giese

        #StayWoke

  • Hoopé Fiasco

    Here it comes!

  • Hoopé Fiasco

    Cleveland taking Wiggins!

  • Mauricio Putz

    Woj types hella fast.

  • Danny Webster

    Woj with 2 Woj Bombs.

  • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

    I don’t know if I like Twitter knowing the picks before my television does

  • Hoopé Fiasco

    I give this selection a B. Wiggins will provide athleticism and defense. Nice pair with Kyrie. Won’t have to handle the ball much! My only concern is his assertiveness in games. Does he have the tools to challenge wings like Paul George? Kawhi Leonard? LeBron James?

    • Mauricio Putz

      At least they got someone who plays some D. Parker would’ve been devastating for them.

      • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

        I give it an A-. No one’s defense is ready for the NBA yet, but his is one of the closest. I don’t think he’ll be a bust

        • Mauricio Putz

          Neither will Parker but, as you said, Wiggins’ D is closest to NBA level.

    • Danny Webster

      He needs to put on some muscle, but can’t deny the talent. It’s an A.

    • Nathan Giese

      Personally had to give an A because it’s the only pick that made sense for the Cavs, and it still brings questions to them. They were in a no-win situations but Wiggins is the best option for them.

  • Mauricio Putz

    I’m just looking at Woj’s timeline now.

  • Guest

    Let’s make something out of it. If we’re still together next year, we’ll meet up somewhere to have a Hoopshabit War Room. Ok? Ok.

    • Mauricio Putz

      This was me, I don’t know why it looks like a guest posted it.

  • Danny Webster

    How about a Big 3 of Brandon Knight, Giannis Antetokounmpo, and Jabari Parker?

    • Nathan Giese

      WHERE IS NATE WOLTERS IN THIS BIG 3!?

      • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

        Watching it happen from the bench

        • Nathan Giese

          :(

      • Michael Dunlap

        Oh good lord…dude looks more like the towel boy for those three.

  • Trevor Magnotti

    So excited to get Wiggins for the Cavaliers. He fills basically every need they had on the wing last year. He’s a perfect fit for the new Cavaliers’ offense with David Blatt, as well.

  • Danny Webster

    Sixers fielding an All-Star team of players who can’t play, centered on Andrew Bynum (with his bowling shoes), Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid.

  • Michael Dunlap

    Did Embiid just lose his father or something? Philly isn’t that bad, is it? SPOILER: Yes, it is.

  • Shawn Mcfarland

    Embiid/Noel in the paint is pretty terrifying (assuming they both stay healthy)

  • Danny Webster

    By the time Embiid realizes he got drafted, the draft will be over … Oh, there we go!

    • Michael Dunlap

      LOL…delayed reaction was priceless.

  • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

    Orlando Magic selected Aaron Gordon and Bill Simmons didn’t yelp. Am I missing something?

    • Michael Dunlap

      They turned his mic off, I think.

  • Trevor Magnotti

    Aaron Gordon and Mo Harkless. Call them the Orlando Masons for the bricks they will put up.

  • Danny Webster

    Oladipo and Gordon. That’s solid. Give it a B.

  • Michael Dunlap

    For the record, I’m not much of a Gordon guy. Athletic, yeah. But…there’s lots of athletic guys who can’t make it in the league. Wasn’t enamored with him at Arizona, either.

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      Me neither. Think he’s the biggest bust so far.

  • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

    So now that the Jazz have Dante Exum, I think they should Treyd Burke

    • Michael Dunlap

      BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

      • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

        I give myself an A-, the pick an A

    • Michael Dunlap

      Maybe they could 3′d Burke

  • Danny Webster

    Exum going to Utah makes me wonder if the Jazz will let Hayward walk.

    • Michael Dunlap

      Exum at the what? Is he going to play the 2 next to Burke?

      • Danny Webster

        People are saying he can do that because of his size. Good jumper to go with it.

  • Trevor Magnotti

    I want a team to try to spend a 2nd-rounder on Exum’s accent.

    • Michael Dunlap

      They could be the international team of mystery.

  • Michael Dunlap

    Celtics do the Smart thing.

    • Trevor Magnotti

      Think this means they’re letting Bradley walk more than trading Rondo.

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      *Throws tomatoes*

    • Danny Webster

      Dang it, Michael! Beat me to it.

  • Danny Webster

    Smart pick by the Celtics.

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      MOAR TOMATOES

  • Michael Dunlap

    Shane Young just creamed, I’m sure.

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      Darn it. I liked Julius.

    • Anthony Young

      MISHANDLE FOR RANDLE, BABY!!!! Power in the paint, Kobe on the wing. Just need more than 4 people on the roster.

  • Danny Webster

    Nothing bad to say about Randle to the Lakers. Very solid.

  • Danny Webster

    And can I say, I think we should take over ESPN’s draft show. I’m growing very tired of Bill Simmons.

    • Michael Dunlap

      Yeah, I can’t stand listening to him. Luckily, my baby is screaming bloody murder.

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      I actually don’t mind him that much. Dude knows what he’s talking about even if he’s way better at expressing it with a keyboard

  • Nathan Giese

    If it wasn’t the Lakers…..

  • Trevor Magnotti

    I hate this pick. Stauskas can’t play defense and plays the same position as Ben McLemore. Fit isn’t good and this is way too high for Stauskas to go.

  • Danny Webster

    Have a feeling Stauskas won’t stay in Sacramento that long.

    • Nathan Giese

      Totally read my….slide.

  • Anthony Young

    I don’t agree with this Kings pick, am I the only one not high on Nik??

    • Nathan Giese

      Even if you’re not the only one, you’re still wrong.

    • Michael Dunlap

      Yeah I don’t really care for it either.

  • Michael Dunlap

    Our grader seems to love everyone.

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      E.L.E.

      • Nathan Giese

        DAMMIT GERALD!

        • Michael Dunlap

          What does that mean?

          • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

            EVERYBODY LOVE EVERYBODY

    • Nathan Giese

      ELE

  • Phil Watson

    They recycled Drazen Petrovic film for Stauskas. Can hear the guy in the truck screaming “GET ME SOME WHITE GUY FOOTAGE, STAT!”

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      “JUST NOT JIMMER, DON’T DO JIMMER AGAIN!”

    • Michael Dunlap

      LOL…we have a Phil sighting!

  • Danny Webster

    Kemba, Vonleh and Big Al. I approve.

  • Shawn Mcfarland

    Vonleh! #MassachusettsRepresenting

  • Phil Watson

    Noah Vonleh and Aaron Gordon … competing for the “Most Likely To Follow Tyrus Thomas’ Career Path” award.

    • Michael Dunlap

      Those are some big shoes to fill. Cement shoes, perhaps.

  • Nathan Giese

    What’s with teams doubling down on picks that they made last year?

    • Trevor Magnotti

      The draft last year was bad? Zeller isn’t ready to be a starter, Vonleh probably is.

      • Nathan Giese

        Yeah, it wasn’t great, but it’s showing lack of interest in guys you already have, which can help crush careers before they get off the ground.

  • Michael Dunlap

    Holy crap did you see his hands compared to Jay Williams?

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      I did until his hand came out of the TV and pulled me inside it

      • Michael Dunlap

        Is that the dude that cut your hair yesterday?

        • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

          Yes. He clipped my hair with his two fingers and gave me a mohawks in two snips

          • Michael Dunlap

            You’re on your A game, humor wise.

  • Phil Watson

    We get it, ESPN. All 60 guys picked tonight could have been the No. 1 pick last year. Move on, nothing to see here.

    • Michael Dunlap

      It’s not normal to have 60 Michael Jordans. THEY ALL HAVE UPSIDE!

  • Danny Webster

    Holy Noah Vonleh hands, Batman.

  • Phil Watson

    Holy crap! There was a 76ers-Pelicans trade a year ago? Tell me more!

  • Danny Webster

    The draft’s sleeper now off the board.

  • Michael Dunlap

    Nice fake clap there from MCW.

  • Shawn Mcfarland

    With Noel’s flat-top and now Payton, the Sixers are arguably top five in the league in cool hair.

  • Trevor Magnotti

    So……..MCW off the ball will be interesting.

  • Phil Watson

    Defensive Player of the Year in the Sun Belt … is that a compliment or condemnation?

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      It’s a “tallest midget” or “hottest $5 hooker” kind of situation

  • Danny Webster

    And Payton could be on the move. Welp.

  • Danny Webster

    Dougie McNuggets!

  • Michael Dunlap

    McDermott has old-man game down. Dude will be playing at the YMCA until he’s 74.

    • Phil Watson

      And he’ll never have knee problems … doesn’t get high enough off the floor to create any stress.

      • Michael Dunlap

        That really is Wally game. Pretty sure he didn’t leave the floor.

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      LOL they just compared him to Adam Morrison and Wally. Come on now, ESPN.

      • Phil Watson

        There’s lazy … then there’s just, damn dudes.

  • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

    McDermott heading to Chicago, according to USA TODAY Sports

  • Danny Webster

    McDermott to Chicago. HUH

  • Phil Watson

    McDermott reminds me of a short Brad Sellers. (oops, not a white guy, my bad).

    • Michael Dunlap

      He could be a shorter, whiter version, right?

  • Shawn Mcfarland

    I’m enjoying the Exum Foot Locker commercials, so there’s that.

    • Michael Dunlap

      And I really liked Australia, so there’s that too.

  • Danny Webster

    So the Sixers will trade Elfrid Payton to Orlando, Philly gets Dario Saric, and the Sixers STILL LOSE.

  • Trevor Magnotti

    The Sixers actually did it. They actually did Embiid/Saric. Embrace the tank.

  • Phil Watson

    And the Sixers’ strategy of picking up big guys who won’t play continues. Sam Hinkie, draft genius,

  • Nathan Giese

    Wow. What in the blue hell is Philadelphia doing?

  • Shawn Mcfarland

    Ah yes, our first draft and stash of the night.

  • Nathan Giese

    We have our first F of the night given out.

  • Shawn Mcfarland

    Is someone going to tell ESPN that Saric isn’t in Orlando anymore?

  • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

    #DOITFORLAVINE, Minnesota

  • Phil Watson

    UPSIDE PICK ALERT! Couldn’t start for an average UCLA team, but he’s the future in Minnesota … and yes, that noise you heard was my eyes rolling,

    • Nathan Giese

      Minnesota really better have a plan with this, because this is terrible

      • Michael Dunlap

        Derrick Williams 2.0. Great athlete…not so great basketball player.

        • Phil Watson

          Why pick basketball players for … a basketball team … oh, wait …

  • Danny Webster

    Sixers get Orlando’s 2017 1st-rounder. So there’s that.

    • Phil Watson

      Quick, let’s look for 2017 big guys who won’t be able to play.

      • Trevor Magnotti

        Didn’t Orlando get a Philly 2016 or 2017 first in the Dwight trade? If so that’s hilarious

      • Danny Webster

        First Google search shows that Thon Maker (7-1, Virginia) will be the No. 1 prospect in 2017.

        • Michael Dunlap

          LOL

      • Danny Webster

        And Thon Maker, according to this report, is still growing and could be 7-3 by Draft Day.

  • Phil Watson

    So LaVine is really happy to be heading to Minnesota … nothing says I’m happy like saying “F*&$ me.”

  • Nathan Giese

    I love this pick for Phoenix. Still hate the Minnesota pick. Who the hell let Kahn back in the office?

  • Trevor Magnotti

    I don’t know what to make of this pick for Phoenix. Seems slightly redundant with Chief Kieff.

    • Michael Dunlap

      Yeah, that highlight package screamed Kieff to me.

  • Phil Watson

    Why is it every time I hear someone talk about LeBron going back to Cleveland, I picture Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown?

    • Michael Dunlap

      LOL. You and Gerald are both on your comic A game.

  • Danny Webster

    Atlanta with another point guard here?

  • Phil Watson

    Give Sam Hinkie credit … the next GM in Philadelphia is going to have an impressive cabinet full of assets.

    • Michael Dunlap

      The Sixers could employ “21 feet of fun”.

      • Phil Watson

        Best business model out in Philadelphia … big-and-tall suit store.

  • Nathan Giese

    Didn’t even realize Gary Harris was slipping. HE COULDN’T HAVE BEEN AN ASSET TO YOU, FLIP!?

  • Danny Webster

    Hmm. Does Payne fit at small forward?

  • Trevor Magnotti

    HOUSE OF PAYNE heading to Atlanta. Love the fit there, he’s a skinnier Horford.

  • Michael Dunlap

    Some strong magenta pants going on there.

  • Phil Watson

    I’m impressed with the confidence of any player who will appear on national TV dressed like Adreian Payne.

  • Danny Webster

    Hey! Did anyone notice the Hawks brought back the Pac-Man logo?

  • Trevor Magnotti

    Excellent move by the NBA recognizing Isaiah Austin.

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      Adam Silver is just the best sort of commissioner

      • Michael Dunlap

        Yep. Very classy. Hoping he comes through Phoenix sometime this year so I can talk to him.

    • Phil Watson

      Got dusty in here for a minute. Must be allergies.

    • Danny Webster

      That was awesome.

  • Shawn Mcfarland

    How long did Silver spend trying to remember that mouthful?

  • Trevor Magnotti

    JUSUF NUGGETS

  • Michael Dunlap

    What are we giving this draft so far, guys?

    • Nathan Giese

      Pretty solid, kinda surprised there aren’t more trades of bigger names, but I could see that happening later in the night. Also, Philly isn’t doing good.

      • Phil Watson

        You’re crazy! Philadelphia is absolutely in position to win in 2033.

        • Nathan Giese

          yeah, well, according to Sports Illustrated, the Astros are going to win the 2017 World Series. So…Who’s really the winner here?

          • Phil Watson

            Comedians the world over.

          • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

            Hinkie must be a Cubs fan. #ItsOurYear

  • Michael Dunlap

    As is the case in most seasons…the free agency period is a LOT more exciting.

  • Trevor Magnotti

    Rookie of the Year is…….

    • Phil Watson

      Jabari Parker.

      • Trevor Magnotti

        This is my pick as well.

        • Michael Dunlap

          Nerlens Noel?

      • Michael Dunlap

        He’ll get the most opportunity.

        • Phil Watson

          That’s why I picked him. There’s no one else to compete with him for shots.

  • Phil Watson

    Oh, Canada! I am feeling a Phoenix-Toronto trade on the horizon.

    • Michael Dunlap

      Damn, I hope so. Kendall Marshall 2.0.

      • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

        That might be enough to make him an improvement on Ish Smith

  • Nathan Giese

    Harris or Foye has to move for Denver. Too many SGs

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      Move Foye.

      • Nathan Giese

        i agree.

  • Trevor Magnotti

    Who did the Raptors just take???

    • Phil Watson

      Fran Fraschilla said he’s two years away from being two years away … Bruno Caboclo. Also said he doesn’t know how to play yet. I’m sold.

      • Trevor Magnotti

        He’s not in the DX Top 100

        • Phil Watson

          Twitter exploding that they could have gotten Caboclo in the second round. Man, they probably could have gotten him for a Happy Meal.

  • Jon Shames

    A little late, but what does that Ennis pick mean for Phoenix? Don’t see a Dragic-Ennis backcourt working the same way the Dragic-Bledsoe one does…are the Suns going to move Goran?

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      Don’t think so. Bledsoe would be way more likely to be on the move than Bledsoe. But to be honest, I think Ennis is either getting traded or will be used as a more viable backup (replacing Ish Smith)

  • Nathan Giese

    SPOILER ALERT: The Raptors get an F

    • Phil Watson

      I’m smelling a trade involving Sam Hinkie here.

    • Phil Watson

      Love your grade on Twitter!

      • Michael Dunlap

        That’s my grade! Don’t steal my comedic thunder!

        • Phil Watson

          My bad. OK, loved YOUR grade on Twitter.

  • Danny Webster

    Raptors fans cheering for someone named Bruno.

    • Nathan Giese

      Surely they could’ve gotten Borat at the very least.

      • Michael Dunlap

        Heyoooooo!

  • Phil Watson

    McGary wanted to go to Denver …

  • Danny Webster

    The Thunder get Nick Collison’s replacement.

      Hell, no. Perkins knows where Brooks buried the bodies. Collison will be jettisoned before Perkins.

      • Trevor Magnotti

        Also Adams is the Perk replacement.

        • Danny Webster

          Messed that up. Quickly edited to Collison after I remembered Steven Adams existed. I got caught.

  • Nathan Giese

    This is one grade I hope I’m wrong on, but a good 6-game stretch a year ago is really iffy

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      Especially for the Thunder. Then again, they always seem to know something the rest of us don’t with their draft picks

      • Nathan Giese

        True. Adams was a WTF pick. McGary at this stage of draft isn’t surprising, just to the Thunder is.

  • Danny Webster

    Yup. Gordon Hayward is now gone.

  • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

    UH OH MCDONOUGH VERSUS MASAI

  • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

    AND UCONN POINT GUARDS REUNITING, IT’S ALL HAPPENING GUYS AND NO ONE’S HERE TO SHARE IT WITH ME

    • Nathan Giese

      I’m afraid I’ve got some bad news, mate.

      • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

        What?

      • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

        Never mind. Dammit.

  • Danny Webster

    Shabazz! LeBron’s going to Charlotte! … Oh, wait.

  • Trevor Magnotti

    Heat grab Bazz so Rio has someone to yell at.

    • Michael Dunlap

      LOL…never happening!

  • Nathan Giese

    Man…Cleanthony Early is looking more and more like a huge steal for a team

    • Danny Webster

      The Mavs are trying to buy into the second round. Hmm…

    • Michael Dunlap

      Suns gonna grab him.

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      I agree. I thought he’d go early 20s at the latest

  • Nathan Giese

    Why wear a suit if you’re watching the draft at home?

    • Phil Watson

      Because it doesn’t matter where you are, so long as you look mahhhhvelous.

      • Nathan Giese

        +1, RT, FAV, thumbs up, Nathan Giese likes this post .

  • Phil Watson

    In the great tradition of Willie Williams, the Suns will take Bogdan Bogdanovic.

  • Danny Webster

    Bogdan Bogdanovic. Michael and Gerald jump for joy.

    • Michael Dunlap

      Love me some Serbs.

    • Nathan Giese

      Too early IMO

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      I’d be excited if it wasn’t highly likely he’s on the move. Long live Bogdan Bogdan

      • Danny Webster

        Bogdan Bogadan the new “Birdman Birdman.”

        • Michael Dunlap

          Wouldn’t it have to be Bogdan Bogdan Bogdan Bogdan?

  • Nathan Giese

    WHERE’S KYLE ANDERSON AKA BETTER THAN BORIS DIAW AND I HATE THAT COMPARISON!?

  • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

    I don’t know whether to believe Ric Bucher or not. HALP.

    • Nathan Giese

      this draft has made us all a little delusional

      • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

        My head. It hurts.

    • Danny Webster

      My thoughts exactly. This has been a long day.

  • Trevor Magnotti

    K.J. In play for the Cavs. Please. Pleasepleasepleasepleaseplease

  • Guest

    So Ric Bucher just tweeted that Toronto is trying to do a S&T with Miami and Kyle Lowry. Guess who would be going back to Toronto in the deal?

    • Michael Dunlap

      Bye Bye Boshie

  • Nathan Giese

    …………………….

  • Nathan Giese

    I can’t even rn with that Thunder pick.

  • Danny Webster

    You know what’d be a real win for the Bucks? Get Cleanthony Early.

    • Nathan Giese

      well they had 5 point guards on the roster before last season, might as well have 5 small forwards to balance yourself out this year.

  • Trevor Magnotti

    So what team overpays Diaw in a week?

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      Please let it be the Lakers

  • Danny Webster

    Anymore players that won’t play for a few years? Phil would love to see Philly get one more, I’m sure.

  • Nathan Giese

    This is the best pick Philly has had tonight. And that’s the saddest reality ever.

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      I won’t quite concede Embiid just yet

      • Nathan Giese

        I do just because of the two straight years of having bad health centers be your future thing. Could work, but it’s a huge gamble

  • Danny Webster

    The Knicks just turned Tyson Chandler into Cleanthony Early. Not sure how I feel about this.

    • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

      #ZENMASTER

  • Danny Webster

    How do the Sixers make their best picks in the 2nd round?

    • Nathan Giese

      I was wondering the same thing. But they’ve trade for a player and a 1st round pick tonight that they already had at one point. So….draw?

  • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

    DAAAAAAA BAIRSTOW. :)

    • Danny Webster

      That shocks me that he’s the first MWC player taken.

  • Nathan Giese

    Where is Thames? Where is Kilpatrick? Where are my damn seniors!?

  • Danny Webster

    Does Philly win the draft based on comedy?

    • Nathan Giese

      yes

  • http://hoopshabit.com Gerald Bourguet

    Good night, everyone. I’m going to go dunk my head in a bucket of ice water and try and process what just happened.
