It doesn't matter who David Stern is greeting - Anything can happen!

The NBA Draft is one of the more entertaining sporting events of the year.  If you're disagreeing right now, then you've probably never sat down and watched a full draft and made any attempt to appreciate it.  What makes the draft so intriguing is the vast variability of it.
