Draft hype

The NBA draft, and the months preceding it, is a big spectacle. Of course, it didn’t always used to be that way. Here’s how Stan Love found out he was drafted. Stan Love was selected No. 9 by the Baltimore Bullets in 1971.
“I was driving down Interstate 5 from Eugene to L.A. when I heard on the radio that I was drafted by Baltimore,” Love said. “I pulled over to look at a map and see where it was.”

Where to find Love?

Stan Love said Kevin Love isn’t sure where he’ll be selected in today’s draft There’s much speculation that he could go to Minnesota at No. 3 or Memphis at No. 5
“He’s confident he’ll be in the NBA,” Stan Love said. “You just really don’t know. You have no idea. All the people that analyze and try to predict, it just doesn’t mean anything until the GMs and owners make their decisions. There’s just no telling where you can go. That’s the good and the bad. It’s fun, but you have no idea which lottery teams you’re going to go to.”

Possible Landing spots for Love and Westbrook

After working the phones all day Wednesday, here’s the most likely destinations for Kevin Love and Russell Westbrook, barring any trades

Love: Minnesota at No. 3, Memphis at No. 5

Westbrook: Seattle at No. 4, the Knicks at No. 6 or the Clippers at No. 7

Things could get interesting if those teams make a trade, or elect to go in a different direction with their picks. Because of the depth of this draft, and all the trades that have been talked about in the last few days, it’s incredibly hard to predict. But those are my best guesses right now.
