With the NBA Draft Lottery slated for Tuesday night in Secaucus, N.J., Jonathan Givony of DraftExpress.com was kind enough to come on the show today and break down the draft.
Givony talks about his top three picks — Kyrie Irving, Derrick Williams and Kemba Walker — as well as the Knicks’ pick at No. 17. In the second part of the video, which you can see by clicking on the “More” button below, he also looks ahead to the 2012 NBA Draft that could feature two of Kentucky’s incoming recruits in the lottery — Anthony Davis and Michael Gilchrist — and returning college players Harrison Barnes, Jared Sullinger and Perry Jones.
My apologies to Jonathan for mispronouncing his last name on the video.
We hope to have him back on after the Lottery and before the NBA Draft June 23.
