Olynyk Faces NBA Draft Today

Now that the Miami LeBrons have successfully bought another NBA championship, it's finally time for this year's crop of exceptional college basketball players to find out where they'll be making money next season. Spokane hoops fans will have their eyes on the draft board this evening as Gonzaga's own Kelly Olynyk, who announced this spring that he'd forego a redshirt senior season to play pro ball, waits to hear where he'll start his NBA career. NBADraft.net currently has him as the #17 pick and headed to Atlanta in their latest mock draft. The draft begins tonight at 4:30 pm on ESPN/Mike Bookey, Inlander. More here.

Question: Any predictions re: where former Zags Olynyk & Elias Harris will go in the NBA draft?

Merry Christmas from the NBA

So the NBA is back in business on Sunday – not just any Sunday, but Christmas, baby! – with a Santa- busting slate of five TV games. There will be NBA games coming down your chimney, NBA games under your tree, even NBA games spinning on the coffee table like dreidel tops.

Nothing says Christmas Day like LeBron James’ crab dribble.

Nothing says Christmas Day like Craig Sager in purple-and-plaid.

Nothing says Christmas Day like Stan Van Gundy pleading for a call in your living room. Full story.

So, the NBA is back. Are you excited?

Klay Thompson Announces For Draft

Klay Thompson filed the paperwork today for the NBA draft, though he won't be signing with an agent. That gives him until May 8 to decide to return to Washington State if he wants. But after listening to him talk for about 15 minutes, it was pretty clear the junior will only be back at WSU next season if something extraordinary happens. We'll have a story up soon/Vince Grippi, SR. (Moscow-Pullman Daily News/AP file photo, Dean Hare: Washington State student Emily King holds a sign asking junior guard Klay Thompson to stay for his senior season March 23, before Washington State's game against Northwestern in the quarterfinals of the NIT in Pullman)

Question: Which NBA bound WSU Coug has a better chance of sticking — DeAngelo Casto or Klay Thompson?
