NBA Draft liveblogging Part V - Roooo-bio!

By Rick Morris

As always tonight, we will lead off an update with a link to HOOPS DRAFTOLOGY 2009, our draft guide and the videos we posted of the top players in this draft. We'll also throw in a link to the CBS Draft Tracker.

Ricky Rubio as expected falls no further than #5 to the TWolves. Cue Dick Vitale xenophobic rant in 3 ... 2 ... 1 ...

Fran Fraschilla loves the pick, which makes sense because he's smart ... Ohio University connections and all.

It's amazing in a way; he was born in Barcelona, which is where the Dream Team dominated in 1992. We heard back then about the international ripples that would come in subsequent years from that global exposure to the game's best; little did we realize that a potential future superstar would be coming from the very same metropolitan area as those Olympic games.

And now Jonny Flynn goes to Minnesota with the sixth pick. Whaaaaaaat??? Two point guards back to back? No doubt they will feed us some garbage about how they can play together, but this is hellaweak. Typical Timberwolves.
