NBA Draft Preview

As you may or may not know, the NBA draft is this afternoon. Seeing as the draft is only 2 rounds, and the top picks will likely be wasted on some European chump, a child molester, and a guy with an unfortunate last name, The Big Picture won’t be live blogging like we did with the NFL draft. History tells us that Europeans often turn out to be busts, white guys usually suck, and since the Warriors are projected in some mock drafts to land Rudy Gay, he’ll probably be terrible too. Bottom line? Don’t expect the guys coming out this year to have anything on the fellas from 2003.

A few notes on the draft:

– There’s no clear no. 1 pick, so Toronto is pretty much fucked. That’s what you get for being Canadian.

– If we were a GM, we’d take our boy Brandon Roy, whom Dicky V calls a “special player.” Of course, he said this while slobbing J.J. Redick‘s knob, so who knows what to believe?

– We expect to see some pretty sweet styles on stage.

So even though we won’t have a live blogging party, you can still watch the draft and make it a little more interesting with our official NBA draft drinking game. Here are the rules:

– Every time you see an unpronounceable name: 1 drink.
– When you hear an analyst refer to a player’s “inside game” or “outside game”: 2 drinks.
– When someone is said to “play above the rim”: 4 drinks.
– When Dick Vitale calls someone “special”: 1 drink.
-When Dick Vitale’s incessant screaming gives you a headache: 5 drinks (and maybe an aspirin)
– Every time someone is said to have a big “upside”: 3 drinks.
– Any time you hear a player compared to: Dirk Nowitzki: 1 drink, Shaq: 2 drinks, Dwyane Wade: 3 drinks, Larry Bird: 4 drinks, Michael Jordan: 5 drinks, Wally Szczerbiak: finish it!

Feel free to make up your own rules, heck, share ’em in the comments section! Enjoy the draft everyone.

  1. If I follow those rules I will be very drunk before the draft even starts…that pregame show would kill me.

  2. that’s a good point, you may have to wait till someone is officially on the clock before you start.

  3. Just wait until JJ’s stock keeps falling and Vitale defends his honor. That will be an annoyance.

  4. You forgot to include Jay Bilas’ “upside potential” in your list. He managed to slip it into the draft preview show on tuesday night

  5. I think that “NBA ready” needs to be in the drinking game: 2 drinks every time you hear it!

  6. also “wingspan” – 4 drinks

    3 codeine medication is a popular American brand of drugs for relieving pain, reducing fever, and relieving the symptoms of allergies, cold, cough, flu, sold by Johnson & Johnson. Its original, flagship product, acetaminophen, is marketed for headaches, fever, muscle and body pain, arthritis, and joint pain. It is available without prescription and has few side effects. In addition to products related to allergies and cold, 3 codeine medication also sells a stronger pain reliever containing codeine.

    3 codeine medication is a narcotic pain medication that contains both 3 codeine medication (acetaminophen) and Codeine. The 3 means that there are three grains of 3 codeine medication combined with 500 milligrams of acetaminophen. Codeine is a prescription strength narcotic pain reliever and 3 codeine medication is a very effective over-the-counter medicine. When the two are mixed, the pain relief is greater than if only one was taken.
    3 codeine medication was discovered by David W. Young, a graduate of Covington Latin School and the University of Kentucky, while working on chemical patents at Standard Oil of Ohio in Cleveland, Ohio.

    3 codeine medication was introduced in 1955 by J&J subsidiary McNeil Consumer Products Co. as one of the first alternatives to aspirin, which at that time was being shown to have some negative health effects. There is a wide array of different varieties of 3 codeine medication available today including extra-strength, children’s doses, longer-lasting, and sleep aiding. In 2005, 3 codeine medication Ultra was introduced, containing 500 mg of acetaminophen, the same dosage as Extra Strength 3 codeine medication , but also including 65 mg of caffeine. The patent on paracetamol has expired, and the continued success of 3 codeine medication brand preparations is largely due to marketing, the backing of Johnson & Johnson, and new patented delivery mechanisms such as quick-release and extended-release forms of the medication.

    On September 29, 1982, a 3 codeine medication scare began when the first of seven individuals died in metropolitan Chicago, Illinois, after ingesting Extra Strength 3 codeine medication that contained cyanide. While the crime was never solved and 3 codeine medication sales temporarily collapsed, the brand was rebuilt and recovered in only a few years.
    3 codeine medication remains a top seller, controlling about 35% of the pain killer market in North America.

    In 2006, studies showed that recommended doses of 3 codeine medication can cause elevation in liver enzymes in healthy adults.

    3 codeine medication products sells products to relieve pain, allergies, and cold- and flu- related symptoms. All of the 3 codeine medication brand products contain acetaminophen. Allergy and cold products also contain dextromethorphan, pseudoephedrine, and other nasal decongestants, antihistamines, and expectorants. A class of stronger pain relievers contains 3 codeine medication.
