Draft day peeps.

As a Jazz fan #3 and # 12 picks, and and a BYU (Jimmer) fan, I have never been so excited for a draft. Also sounds like there could be some big trades going down. (Tony Parker).

Folks around here are hoping Cleveland or Minnesota take Enis Kanter so Williams (Dwill2) falls to Utah. I am hoping Jimmer lands with the Jazz, Suns, Pacers or Knicks. I really don't want to see him in Sacramento, Milwaukee or Charlotte.

Should be an entertaining evening.

Jimmer said on the Dan Patrick show that the Knicks are the team he would most like to play for...and there have been reports that the Knicks may be willing to trade up to get him...so I see New York as a real possibility.

As someone who hopes Jimmer can do well in the NBA, I would love to see him do it on the biggest stage in New York and in Madison Square Garden.

Looking forward to watching the draft tonight, even though it's a relatively weak class. Hoping that the Bulls can somehow stumble onto a legit scoring threat with one of these late 1st round picks. Much easier said than done, but hell. Stranger things have happened.

They are saying even though its a weak draft, there should be more quality players than usual in the late first round, so a team like Chicago may be able to capitalize this year.

You guys sick of Boozer yet? Most Jazz fans were glad to see him go.

Great, we took Irving. The kid seems classy and focused. Now we'll see what kind of mentor Baron proves to be.

I love the fans booing Stern, which got a very early "we have a great crowd tonight".....Stern is possibly the most successful sarcastic prick of all-time.

Yeah, this for Boston as well. I don't really see anything happening for the C's that will make any difference next year, but who knows...

My initial excitement over my brethren Jordan Hamilton being picked by the Mavs has morphed into even greater excitement over swapping the pick for Rudy Fernandez. Daddy like.

The Celtics actually got a center. I'm shocked it wasn't another guard.

I loved the one time he came out and just gave a big wave and smile over to a section of the crowd booing him. Gotta say, Stern is pretty funny.
