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 Derrick Williams recap.

Of the 12 NBA Media Day players, Derrick Williams was one of the few decked out in a full blazer and tie during the 30-minute session. He needed to look in his Sunday best as he answered 4,000 questions about his position at the professional level (on the day, I didn't hear more talk about one certain topic than this).
Williams also was candid about his biggest fear, his meteoric rise from high school to future possible No. 2 pick, his playing days at Arizona and much more.
