The Only NBA Draft Preview To Read
For those of you unfamiliar with The Sports Guy, espn.com's columnist is not only one of the most astute sports commentators in any medium, he's funny as hell. In honor of tonight's NBA draft, The Sports Guy (real name, Bill Simmons) has compiled his Top 60 moments from the past eight NBA drafts. Perhaps only Summers would be anal enough to keep a diary of the past eight drafts AND to lace it with so many hilarious insights. It helps if you know all the trivial figures he spools out, but even neophytes can find a laugh or two here. It is the perfect antidote to all the blather folks who tune in tonight will hear about players who, aside from a handful of sure things, represent one of the weirdest billion-dollar crapshoots in all of pro sports.
