NBA Draft Media Day 2011 took place yesterday, and Bleacher Report was there reporting on a frenetic event where journalists from across the world scratch and claw for any quotes, sound bites and video clips from future NBA draft picks.
Twelve players appeared at the Westin Times Square, split into two groups of six, for 30-minute shifts early Wednesday afternoon. Here is the Jimmer Fredette recap.

Where's Jimmer? Beneath a sea of 20 journalists and cameramen at all times. Unless I wanted to body-check numerous levels of people, this was the clearest shot I could get of the Naismith Player of the Year.
While Kyrie Irving, Derrick Williams and Kemba Walker all had their media followings, Jimmer stole the show with his front and center table assignment. He walked a fine line on Media Day, never giving out an endless array of boring clichés but not professing to be as candid as Enes Kanter either.
Inside, Jimmer talks about workouts, Utah, the Knicks, his position and more.
