NBA Draft liveblogging Part VII - Knick fans will cheer Jordan!

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.

Jordan Hill takes a stroll down Broadway with the 8th pick in the draft. Cue the MSG press release, "We wish David Lee well in his future endeavors." Knick fans are booing because they're still drinking the Curry-flavored Kool-Aid.

I don't care what anybody says, this broadcast team is just not the same without Steven A. Smith and his cheesy doodles on the set. Rachel Nichols manages to go through an entire interview with Donnie Walsh without asking any insipid Lebron questions. ESPN's gonna horsewhip her for that.

It was funny to see Jeff Van Gundy crack on stupid Knick fans for booing.

The Raptors then pick up a nice value with Demar DeRozan at #9. He's got a nice upside, but Toronto has been the graveyard for potential in the past.
