So, heard any good rumors lately? The NBA silly season is in full swing and as more names get leaked into the blogosphere it seems fitting that the kickoff to what promises to be one of the odder NBA offseasons in recent memory features a draft with more questions than answers and more smoke than a Cheech and Chong marathon.

It’s okay to admit that you forgot the NBA Draft is Thursday night, or maybe didn’t know at all. This is what happens when you win 60 games and don’t have a first-round pick. If things stay the course right now the Celtics pick 58th. About the only interesting story there would be if Tyrese Rice were on the board. Not exactly gripping television.

Welcome, Celtics Nation! Where you been all year?
