We pick it up at the start of the 2nd round:
10:27 – 2nd round here we come baby, I know you can’t get enough Slam.
10:31 – Wait did the Cavs actually select Christian Eyenga? This is crazy.
10:32 – Sactown takes Jeff Pendergraph, I mean Jason Thompson, I mean, what is this. Teams taking the same players, people are stupid.
10:34 – Jermaine Taylor goes, he’s got some ups, but he’s a career backup pass.
10:38 – Dante Cunningham is going to be a solid NBA Player. He plays well above his talent level and never quits. He has a nice runner in the lane and will play the 3 or 4 in the pro’s.
10:41 –Jonas Jerebko where are you? This draft has been so crazy weird but we can’t have you drop too much farther Jonas. Sweden needs you to get drafted.
10:42 – We’re about to start the podcast so I will now only be commenting on European players who get drafted. That is unless Minnesota drafts another point guard.
10:43 – DENVER GET SERGIO LLULL!!! And now I can sleep tonight. This is fantastic, I live for Sergio Lull and now he gets to play with my boy Carmelo Anthony (Syracuse). Early 2nd round this is perfect for him. Give Lull some open space and a fast break offense and look for him to soar. Get ready for the Revolution, the SERGIO REVOLUTION. He’s about take over the NBA and needs a proper nickname how about En Fuego which means fire cause Lull is always on fire.
10:57 – Jonas Jerebko Goes FINALYYYY. Maybe the most NBA ready European prospect goes to Detroit with the 9th pick in the 2nd round. He could come over to the Pistons next year and provide defense and outside shooting to a team that could use it. Looks for Jonas to either be one of the best players in the Italian league next year of be coming off the bench or dare I say it starting for the Pistons. Yes that’s how ready he is people, he’s built and ready to defend a small forward near you.
11:01- Patrick Beverly goes to the Lakers with 42nd pick. Beverley started his career at Arkansas but has played in the Ukraine League last year. He’s a lifetime European player so pass.
11:12- Nick Calathes gets picked by the Wolves with the 15th pick in the 2nd round. Nick is going to play for Panathaniakos next year but the Wolves strike again, ANOTHER POINT GUARD. This went from funny to insane to flat out stupid, 5 guards that is stupid
11:19 – 2 picks later the Wolves strike again with the Euro’s as Henk Norel, the big man from DKV Joventut goes to Minnesota. That’s 3 players from DKV getting picked in this draft, EUROLEAGUE RULES!
11:25 – Atlanta takes Sergiy Gladyr another 2 picks later and FreakNick is very happy. This guy is super athletic and may never wear a Hawks uniform but he can dunk all over you.
11:29 – Goran Sutan gets taken by Utah and will now play in Europe for the rest of his career, welcome Goran.
11:33 – NANDO DE COLO yes the man, the myth, the legend is finally taken. He may love living on the beach and guess what San Antonio is right next to Mexico baby, the land of beaches. Love it, I really hope that De Colo come over to the NBA, his name is just too cool and he is the type of point guard the Spurts would draft. There the team you expect to draft foreigners and they did.
11:38 – Patty Mills gets drafted by Portland with the 25th pick in the 2nd round. They already have Jerrd Bayless though so I don’t see any way he makes the team. D-League or even better Europe, welcome Patty.
11:45 – This has all culminated in Emir Preldzic going to the best team possible for him, the Phoenix Suns. Hangout in Turkey for a couple years Emir then come over and run some point forward for the Suns. Someone buy him beer because he looks too young for anyone to sell him alcohol.
11:58 – Were almost at midnight and the draft is almost over. Yes I just shed a tear for the wackiest draft ever. Minnesota drafting 14 point guards, 14 foreign players getting drafted, THE EUROPEAN EXPLOSION IS APON US. Yes that’s rightm this is new age of European players. We have long athletic guys who aren’t afraid to play defense and dunk all over someone. I hope you had fun because I sure did; this is Slam signing off but still searching for information on Christian Eyenga on Google.
