06/28 (NBA Draft) Quickie

I'm way too invested in tonight's NBA Draft: Bradley Beal is my guy and has been for a long time. My Wiz pick 3rd, which means they will just miss him (if Charlotte trades their pick) or they will get him at 3 (unless the Wiz GM, inundated with offers for Beal, trades the pick). I'm antsy.

Otherwise, it's an awesome night for Hornets fans -- the path to title contention starts now.

My annual list:

Players I like: Beal, Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Thomas Robinson, Damian Lillard, Royce White, Andrew Nicholson, Draymond Green, Jeff Taylor, Quincy Miller, Bernard James, Doron Lamb, Drew Gordon, Kyle O'Quinn, Jae Crowder.

Players I don't: Harrison Barnes, Austin Rivers, Andre Drummond, Jeremy Lamb, Perry Jones, Terrence Jones, Will Barton, Tony Wroten.

Nights like this I miss my old "Draft Fashion" column -- that was a fun one to do.
