2011 NBA Draft Open Thread


It's time once again for one of my favorite annual threads on Red Reporter!  That's right, it's time for the NBA Draft!  In the past these threads have produced lots of discussion, lots of good jokes & lots of trolling!  Let's hope tonight is no different!

 

It seems to be a foregone conclusion that Kyrie Irving is going to go #1 to the Cleveland Cavaliers, but after that not much is certain.  Will the Cavs take a big man at #4 or trade away that pick?  The Internet has been going crazy with trade rumors & there is apparently a 3 team trade that's already been completed.  The Spurs for some reason are trying to trade Tony Parker for a Lottery Pick and it should be entertaining to see how many teams make a huge mistake & pass on the best player in the draft, Enes Kanter.

 

Other notables in the draft include Derrick Williams, Brandon Knight, Kemba Walker, Jimmer Fredette, Marcus Morris, Tobias Harris, Tristan Thompson & a couple of foreign players I've never heard of that apparently can't get out of their oversees contract.

 

Perhaps less notable are DeAndre Liggins, #Jorts, and former Louisville commit Jeremy Tyler. 

 

And, of course, it wouldn't be an NBA draft without several sightings of John Calipari!

And because Cleveland is likely to be the story of the draft, Rally Cavs Girl!
