NBA Draft 2011 Winners and Losers

In brighter NBA news, just before the lockout, the league held its annual draft.  The NFL draft gets all the buzz, but I’ve always liked the NBA version better.  In the NFL, so many players are hyped so much but so few of them actually pan out or are ever heard from again.  The NBA’s model is much more concise  (2 rounds as opposed to 7) and players have an increasing likelihood of affecting their team’s immediate fortunes.

This year’s draft was, admittedly, anti-climactic coming off of a fantastic playoff run and directly before a work stoppage that could mean we don’t see any of these guys on an NBA court until sometime in 2012, if we’re lucky.  Even still, I enjoyed it and spent a little time breaking down who I thought the winners and losers were.  I can only hope I get to find out whether I was right or wrong sometime soon.
