Just me or Espn extremely lacking draft coverage?

This time last year the debate between rose and beasly was beaten to death...and now we can't even get a 3 minute clip on it.
Whats the deal!?!?

I agree ESPN is slacking. Chad Ford is the only one who talks about the draft ha.

Well

Who is there to talk about? Griffin is the obvious choice for number one pick. Its not like the past drafts where we had Oden/Durant and Rose/Beasley debate.

There are still a ton of good players outside of the #1 pick. There is plenty to talk about.

I guess

But not much exciting players. By the way I'm new to the forum so I'm wondering how the point system works? I have negative points for some reason.

It's a sports network & it

It's a sports network & it is a slow time of year for sports, so it does seem a little ridiculous the lack of coverage - even in a (possibly) down draft.

I have been

impressed by nbatv. The draft previews combines and former drafts, for example right now on nbatv the 2007 nba draft is on.

my guess is monday thru thursday they will talk about the draft half of sportscenter just like they do with the nfl draft. it will be ric bucher and chad ford along with some side interviews from andy katz and john hollinger.

ha

I saw a little four minute special on college point guards yesterday. Espn basically just stated the obvious (curry can shoot, teague has more finishing ability than Curry, etc.) That is pretty much all I have seen from Espn other than the occasional bs Chad Fird mock draft.

i agree

about espn lacking coverage of the draft. instead they are talking about tiger woods and lefty , baseball, and sammy sosa. but i dont understand why they are not trying to hype up this draft. i know its not deep like the past drafts. but they are actually hurting themselves. because they are broadcasting the draft on their network. so if they dont hype the draft or talk about it. then no one will watch it like that.
