We Live in Crazy Times

Draft coverage starts in 35 minutes, and I gotta head home, so I don't miss any essential Jay Bilas moments. Shoals will be Covering It Live over at the Baseline, and I'll be getting all a-Twitter (ha! bet no one's ever used that one before!).

If you're looking for something to do between picks, you could do worse than downloading this polka track from legendary free jazz saxophonist Frank Wright.

Also, don't forget to listen to the latest podcast, which will soon be rendered meaningless, if it wasn't already.

Frank Wright. Nice.

Does anyone yet know who the T-Wolves are planning to trade with for Rubio?

The Knicks' roster now includes Jeffries, Curry, D.Lee, J.Hill, Gallinari, Chandler, Harrington, and Milicic in the front court. Meanwhile, they have one shooting guard, Larry Hughes, who will probably get injured at some point.

Minnesota, also, has no shooting guard, as Henry Abbott pointed out.

The only worthwhile SG on the free agent market is Ben Gordon.

Which teams have a surfeit of 2-guards? Utah comes to mind. Any others?

I think the idea for the Knicks is that Robinson (if he's brought back) or Douglas will play that other guard spot. One of the NY papers reported that Walsh got #29 specifically for Douglas, and that Walsh would have traded it away if Douglas were gone.

Besides, given D'Antoni's relaxed approach to defense, these labels don't really matter. So long as someone can passably run around after another team's two guard, he's just going to play whomever can run and shoot the best.

Someone just compared Stephen Curry to a stem cell, you guys think it's as off the wall as I do?

It seems pretty much in keeping with the level of over-hype that Curry's gotten all along. Don't get, though, why these guys (whom I like a lot), who are this clever, wouldn't apply this conceit to a more rad player.
