It was this past weekend in Los Angeles, though, that I realized what it means to be truly hungry. The D-League was holding it’s own pre-draft camp at the same facility all weekend as well. Everyday before the Elite campers took the court, 200 guys were battling it out for the right to be drafted to the D-League. That is the ULTIMATE hunger. Why? Let me explain.
For more on the D-League pre-draft mini-camp, check out this post at Ridiculous Upside, which includes a listing of involved players.
The 2009 NBA Draft is tomorrow night. And there is plenty to be interested in from a D-League standpoint. Be sure to follow @BlogTalkBayHawk on Twitter for live tweets throughout the draft. We'll be especially interested to learn of the selections of the Sixers and Cavaliers as they could become future BayHawks.
It'll also be interesting to see whether anyone can follow in the footsteps of the Clippers' Mike Taylor—the first D-League player to be selected in the NBA draft. In what is being deemed a weak draft year, it is certainly within the realm of possibility.
