I'll be spending the next several days canyoneering in Zion National Park. You'll have to obsess about basketball without me for awhile.
Unfortunately, the 24th and 29th picks that I received from Phoenix in trade in the SBNation and Friends mock draft are likely to come up while I'm gone. Citizen mp has instructions and the authority to act in my stead, so we'll see what happens.
In the Great Blogger Mock Draft, I kept the 14th pick and drafted Nick Young of USC. Here's what I said about that:
The Clippers still need a point guard given the uncertain situation with Shaun Livingston's knee and Sam Cassell's age, but with the best two point guards already off the board and Javaris Crittendon a couple of years from helping, Nick Young on the wing is the best choice for the Clippers.
I kind of sort of believe all that.
See you Saturday.
