It's almost here.
Months of wondering, pining and mock drafting have all been leading up to this: The actual 2014 NBA draft.
On Thursday, June 26, fans will watch with bated breath as certain teams' futures unfold right before their eyes. Prospects will look on as their first NBA home is assigned to them. Trades will be struck. Surprise picks will be made.
Predictions will turn to mush.
Until then, though, educated guesses are all we have. Some of the best in the business have guided us through this period of uncertainty by providing insight into some of the most pressing questions.
Who will go No. 1 following Joel Embiid's injury? Where will Jabari Parker land? What's to become of the once-peerless Andrew Wiggins?
All of these inquests—and more—will be answered soon. Very soon.
For now, we have the privilege of priming ourselves for another hectic draft night with the help of a few, well-informed friends.
