So...the draft. Nothing too excited really, at least to me. Lots of trades of rights to guys that probably won't be anything too huge. With all the draft build up, just looking at the picks in the first rounds from the past years - and really, only a handful from each year (maybe only 2-3) really amount to true "stars" in the NBA. The rest either fizzle out quickly, or in some cases become nice role players. From last night, there's a few that might do well in the NBA - but overall it seemed like sort of a boring class to me.
The draft night really was all about LeBron it seems. The Heat and Bulls both made trades to get huge under the cap, with enough room to sign two big names this offseason. As far as the James sweepstakes goes, it sounds like a number of people are thinking Chicago. I think Cleveland is still a possibility, but I wouldn't feel real confident if I was them either. A Miami team-up with D. Wade could happen too, and would be very interesting to see since they could sign another max FA (like Bosh or Stoudemire) as well. Crazy. I do get the feeling that LBJ is going to draw this whole thing out and be wined and dined by all the different suitors, and stay in the headlines all summer long. It seems like he really wants to enjoy all of this.
