Thursday Morning Dump

It's draft day. One of my favorite days of the year. After today, some of these now-former college hoopers will become NBA stars, a larger portion will become role-players/benchwarmers, and others will, as Mike Tyson so eloquently stated, "fade into Bolivian".

I don't love doing Mock Drafts. I don't know enough about the NBA teams to make a good guess as to who they pick. I leave that to Draft Express, Chad Ford, and the rest of the draftniks. I will, however, link the mock draft Scott Klatzkin did for us a month ago. Seriously, give this a read, its worth it.

- If you read anything today, check out this piece of Tom Konchalski. More required reading -- Gene Wojciechowski on Coach K's basketball camp.

- Basketball Prospectus released their NBA Draft comparison list this morning. Some of these are spot on, and some leave you scratching you head.

- Dana O'Neil details how the new Appalachian State head coach, Jason Capel, is trying to uphold his family name

- That is UNC recruit PJ Hairston. Wow.

- TrueHoop discusses William Wesley

- 2011 prospect Tyler Harris wants to be more than just Tobias' younger brother

- James McAdoo spoke with Mike DeCourcy about his decision to finish up high school. He seems like a good kid.

- Remember Latavious Williams? He struggled to qualify, so he joined the D-League before entering the NBA Draft.

- Marcus Camby will be inducted into the UMass Hall of Fame

- Ball Don't Lie with an awesome post on the style of some of the potential picks. Cole Aldrich = AMAZING.

- Memphis transfer Roburt Sallie is interested in Indiana

- Louisville fans are pissed at Jeff Goodman for not giving them a prize they won (I'll be honest, I've been thru the same thing. I'm still waiting on a pair of Dockers khaki pants from Rush The Court for a twitter contest back in April. Not mad, I'm just saying.)

- Cornell big-man Jeff Foote signed a deal with Maccabi Tel Aviv

- Former Wildcat Ramel Bradley reflects on Big Blue Nation and their five draft entrants
