NBA Draft liveblogging Part I - ESPN in denial

By Rick Morris

With the biggest news story of 2009, the passing of Michael Jackson, having hit the wires in the last hour or two, ESPN is figuratively putting their fingers in their ears and doing the "NEENER NEENER NEENER WE CAN'T HEAR YOU" thing. What a bubble they are in. This draft is already arguably the worst of the modern era and now it is completely overshadowed and they're acting like Iran state media with the whole "nothing to see here" attitude towards anything non-sports on this evening. That's really weak.

David Stern kicks off the proceedings with an ugly lavender tie. He managed to say that the Clippers are on the clock without visibly choking about Blake Griffin going there being a horrible waste for the league, so good for him.
