Every fan of the NBA has been looking forward to this Thursday since before the 2012-13 season ended. The day is finally arriving and the rumor side has picked up like crazy. I don’t know if I remember a draft where EVERY team in the lottery has trade rumors out there to trade up or back. This draft has the potential to make every other draft look like the PBS network.
Jazz fans that lost interest over the past few seasons have jumped back in and in a big way giving their two cents in every chat room on the planet. All the fans that I couldn’t stand talking to last year (the “why didn’t the Jazz lose that game?!” fans) are now good to talk to again. My prayer is that if the Jazz can’t move up that all these fans still stay on supporting the Jazz like fans did before the Deron era. Utah needs to be loud again!
That being said here are the things to watch on NBA draft night:
Will Keven Love be traded? And where? Golden State? Denver? Boston? Somewhere else?
How far will Embiid fall?
Will any of the top 3 teams trade their pick? All are in heavy rumors right now.
Which team or teams will trade into the lottery? Boston, Lakers, Kings all could trade out.
Will Favors, Kanter or Burks be traded? I expect one of them to be.
Will Jazz really stay put on all 3 picks? I doubt it.
Where does the beloved Jabari Parker end up?
Gonna be a fun night!!
