-What a week! Between Lebron opting out, ‘Melo seeking greener pastures, and (somehow) Men’s Soccer dominating the news cycle, The Debate almost forgot the FRICKEN’ NBA DRAFT is happening TODAY! We’re too tired to add to the hundreds of talking heads’ forecasts/mock draft/projections that many of you have already waded thru. Instead, join us tonight as we react to every aspect of the ESPN’s Draft Coverage, from the suits to the commentary to the commercials, all from the comfort of your own couch-
3:40 PDT: Anyone else surrounded by family who collectively care NOT ONE IOTA about the draft, yet you are still powering thru attempting to force it onto the one TV in the living room? We can’t afford a 21 minute opening montage of Jay Bilas length comments and rags to riches prospect dream stories ESPN. We need the draft, the picks, and we need them before the baby gets us cut off from the coverage in favor of Cailou.
3:50 PDT: Why, on the DirectTV channel listing is there a 30 minute (4-4:30pm) NBA DRAFT 2014 listing, followed by a 4 hour (4:30-8:30pm) NBA DRAFT 2014 listing? Does that mean we are devoting enough time to let Fran Frashcilla tell us about the greatness of a 9 year old Belgium small forward?
3:55 PDT Here at the Debate we’re as big a fan of The Rock as there is, but why in godsname is he running around, as Hercules, wearing 1/2 a lion carcass on his head? Does anyone associate “lion killing” with Hercules?
4:01 PDT Reece Davis is the voice of the Draft? That guy has the best job in America…College Football, the Selection Show for March Madness, and the Draft?
