2012 NBA Draft Results

Tonight was the 2012 NBA Draft and I have never seen more wheeling and dealing in a draft like this in a very long time. It really seemed like certain teams were unsure of their picks. I think teams like the Wizards, Hornets and Cavaliers had an awesome draft overall. They all knew what they wanted and pretty much got it. Everyone keeps saying no one will compete with the Heat or Thunder but if those three teams can make some good free agent signings then they could be getting into the hunt again. With all that being said here is a recap of tonight’s events and how it all went down.
