Good evening, friends! It is time! The 2012 NBA Draft beings at 7:00 on ESPN (I think the actual picks start at 7:30), at which point we'll begin the long wait until it's the Knicks' turn to make their 48th selection. Draft night's fun with or without heavy involvement from the Knicks, though (plus, you never know). For once, I'll be at home in front of my TV instead of at the event, so it'll be easier for me to chat with y'all and keep things updated (Osborn, meanwhile, is in the building). If need be, I'll switch to a new thread between rounds or something, and there will be a fresh post up as quickly as possible once the Knicks have picked somebody.
As I said before, my favorite guys right now-- based on what I've read and watched-- are Darius Johnson-Odom, Kim English, and Jae Crowder. It's possible that none of those guys fall to 48, but there are plenty more bros who seem like they'd fit. I just want a guard, really. Preferably one who can hit a jumper. Y'all?
(If you're trying to keep up with general rumors, this is a good place to start.)
Update: I'll be on my usual radio spot here at 6:30.
