2011 NBA Draft Open Thread

Come one, come all to A Sea of Blue and talk about the NBA draft.  Marvel as more Kentucky players (and one who wasn't able to play) are picked early and often by the professionals.  Be amazed as Kentucky tries to put nine players onto NBA teams via the draft in only two years.  That sounds like another first to me, but don't quote me on that.

Here are the particulars, via Wikipedia:

I have a dinner engagement at Rumors in Middletown with The Fake Gimel Martinez.  Some of you might remember him from KSR, and A Sea of Blue back in the day.  He and I, along with my wife, will be getting together just for the fun of it.  I will be commenting on the draft when we get done and get home, but I doubt if that will be in time for either Enes Kanter or Brandon Knight.

The big mystery for me (and maybe for most of you) will be where our other two entries get picked up, if they do at all.  Most draft boards I have seen show DeAndre Liggins on it somewhere, but none seem to have Josh Harrellson.  Still, I'm sure he will be considered, it's just hard telling if he'll make it in.

So here's to the boys in Blue and White trying to take it to the next level and make it in the world's toughest basketball league.  I know we all have our fingers crossed.  Good luck,  guys.

It's an open thread.  Fire away.
