Achieving Peace by Remembering the Past: The 2009 StR Draft Thread

26

I was making my plans on how to experience this year's draft, and I decided to find out approximately when the actual picks start being made by reviewing last year's draft thread. In addition to answering my initial question (it appears that the clock starts on the first pick at 4:30), it was fascinating and often hilarious reliving last year's draft through the eyes of StR (I missed the live thread last year). In a strange way, reviewing the roller coaster of anticipation, excitement, jubilation, horror, disbelief, skepticism, and various coping methods left me feeling even more excited for this year's draft but also less nervous. I've been telling myself that I'll be okay with whoever Geoff chooses, but I think this is the first time that I've actually felt it. I also plucked from this thread my new sig line, spoken by one great philosopher and retold by another.

Hollinger: Draft Ty Lawson

13

ESPN's John Hollinger is high on Ty Lawson, Blake Griffin, Tyreke Evans and Stephen Curry. DeMar DeRozan? Jordan Hill? Patty Mills? Not so much.

Next Sacramento King - Tyreke Evans (I Just Feel It)

18

I really feel that Rubio will be gone by #4 and Tyreke will be the pick. I would be all too happy. Ecstatic actually. I truly beleive that this guy will be a all-star multiple times. He has that kind of talent. 2008 McDonald's All American MVP - that's special. He's only18 too. This fanpost is to feature his best Youtube vids.

Some Nice DX Mock Draft Developments

12

I was bored, so I decided to take a jaunt over to Draft Express, and I elated to see Ricky Rubio as no. 2 on the 2009 Draft Board, as well as Jrue Holiday at no. 24. DX having Rubio at no. 2 just makes me so much happier as a person; now if Rubio does actually enter the draft there are so many more options for Sacramento. If Sacramento picks up Griffin we can potentially get a defensive point guard (although a project) in Holiday, or go after a more finished product like Collison. There is even potential to draft Jeff Teague or Eric Maynor, who are at no. 18 and 19 respectively, if they do slide more than they have already. I'm excited.
