The 2011 NBA draft is scheduled to begin in less than 12 hours, and there's arguably more uncertainty with this draft than any in recent memory.

The Minnesota Timberwolves, picking at No. 2, have been shopping the pick since the lottery was finalized around a month ago. They've yet to find a proper suitor, or so they say.

The draft class itself is extremely lacking in terms of star power. Duke's Kyrie Irving and Arizona's Derrick Williams are believed to be the only two legit stars, and then there's quite a drop-off.

Something many people have failed to realize is that while lacking in star power, this class is incredibly deep. Many second-round picks have the potential to be solid rotation players for teams, while there could be a dozen or so potential starters taken in the first round.

Throughout the day and leading into the draft, I'll be discussing a multitude of topics ranging from certain teams' draft strategies and potential second-round sleepers to analyzing recent mock drafts from ESPN's Chad Ford and the many trade rumors that are being discussed.
