Tonight is the 2011 NBA Draft, and for anyone reading this looking for behind-the-scenes insight on what will happen tonight – frankly, I’ve got nothing.
Anything can happen on draft night, and we’ll be watching like the rest of you.
If you’re looking for a place to watch tonight’s draft with other NBA fans, Budweiser will be having a watch party at Toby Keith’s “I Love This Bar & Grill” in Bricktown.
In the meantime, you can take a look at two great pieces on past drafts. On the our website, Thunder broadcaster Grant Long talks about his experience being drafted by the Miami Heat in 1988. And the Oklahoman yesterday went down the list of Thunder players, discussing how each one came to the team and what picks the Thunder has made in previous years.
The draft will be broadcast on ESPN starting at 6 p.m. (channel 29/HD 720 on Cox in OKC). Our web team will be posting news and updates at THUNDER.NBA.COM as the draft unfolds, so keep an eye on our site throughout the night, as well.
