    He should refuse to sign with the celtics. It could hurt his... brand.

    Gottlieb took White at #9 for Detroit in ESPN's 'Expert' mock draft

    2012 NBA Draft - Experts make their picks for the first round - ESPN
    Most places I have seen have him going to Boston at 21 or 22.

    Somewhere in between 14 and 22 wouldn't surprise me. I would be surprised if he falls past Boston though. I also wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't stay with the team that takes him.

    This draft seems like it has the potential for some excitement with the Rockets accumulating picks trying to pull off a trade for Dwight Howard, or potentially Pau Gasol. And teams with top 10 picks looking to move around.

    Any chance Scotty gets picked up late in the draft? Haven't heard if he's been to many team camps, etc.

    Still thinking he deserves 10-15. Whatever the case may be, I'll be thrilled for him when his name is called.

    I agree with you. I think this draft us as deep as any in the last 10 years or so. I am also anxious to c what teams with multiple picks end up with tonight.

    As for Royce, probably in the 15-25 range. But I think he cud help most teams and get good minutes for many of those.

    I am pretty excited to find out who is going to become my new favorite NBA team. I hope it is somebody we can see on tv.

    Agreed. I haven't paid much attention at all the NBA for years. This will renew my interest for sure.

    I am actually hoping for the Celtics to get him. He could be a big part of rebuilding with their older players being phased out.

    This will be the first NBA draft I've ever watched. I haven't had cable for 3 or 4 days thanks to Mediacom so hopefully I can watch on my Xbox.

    Haha oh is that why? Last week, certain channels weren't available on the regular channels but were on the HD or digital channels. Whatever they are. Like History Channel wasn't available on 45 but it worked on whatever the only History channel is.
