WTF ESPN

The draft is four days away and I have not seen any coverage at all from them about the draft. I don't watch much TV but when I watch SC I haven't seen them talk about the draft.

They have a monster draft

They have a monster draft show I believe tomorrow.

If you have the NBATV station, they have the full breakdown of each team tonight. Right now? There showing the 1995 draft. Hubie Brown and Rick Pitino on commentary.

Yeah I'm watching the 95

Yeah I'm watching the 95 draft replay. Rick Pitino seemed like he was going to pull down his pants and beat off everytime they mentioned Corliss Williamson's name. LOL. Talk about a man crush......

I've been wondering the exact same thing. If it's the NFL Draft, they'll talk about it months before the the actual date.

LOL, Iggy, thats pretty cool

LOL, Iggy, thats pretty cool that they replay old drafts like that, I remember there being a lot of questions about Garnett coming out of high school in that draft. What was Hubie and Pitino's initial reaction when he was taken at #5?

They were mostly talking

They were mostly talking about his potential, and how he was a 19 year old who was Mr. Basketball in 2 different states. They didn't mention any bad, but they didn't call him a future H.O.F'er either.

im pretty sure

its a known fact that espn cares more about the nfl than the nba. nfl live is a year long program while nba fastbreak (which btw sucks) is only there for the season.

TNT needs to get the draft

TNT needs to get the draft coverage back. Every part of ESPN's NBA coverage sucks from the draft to their broadcasters (outside of Hubie, who needs to go back to TNT).

7, 8 rounds in the NFL

So many roster spots available. NBA is best of the best no fill ins. Not many guys ever make the NBA. Everyone on here knows or played against someone they were certain was the truth and they never made it to the NBA. Hardest sport in the world to go pro in and that is a fact.
