First things first. Shaq is officially off the board, and so is Scoop Jackson’s master plan for a Bulls roster featuring Derrick Rose, Tracy McGrady or Ben Gordon, John Salmons, Tyrus Thomas, Shaquille O’Neal; with a bench of Kirk Hinrich, Joakim Noah, DeJuan Blair, Wayne Ellington, Brad Miller, Anthony Roberson and DeMarcus Nelson. Oh well.
The TrueHoop Network blogs — led by Hardwood Paroxysm — will be liveblogging the event. As HP’s Matt Moore put it: “Join us on Draft Day, starting at 5PM EST for a liveblog event that will be so phenomenal, you’ll have to twitter about how awesome it was just reading about it on Facebook from a post someone made when they found it on Digg. Ya Digg?”
You can expect many members of the TrueHoop Network — myself included — and some very special guests to show up and discuss the successes and failures of the draft. There will be analysis, snark and much crying to the heavens. Should be a good time…so keep an eye on this post.
