On Thursday evening we’re trying something new as we’ll be covering the NBA Draft live from Toronto and Washington.
I have to admit I’m pretty excited about the fact we’ll be giving basketball fans exclusive audio and video from both of these locations as the NBA Draft unfolds. Rashad Mobley will be posting audio clips from Washington while I’ll be in Toronto and I’ll throw up some audio or video when Bryan Colangelo and Jay Triano talk with the media. This night won’t just be for Raptors and Wizards fans as we will be relaying any inside scoops we’re hearing as well as our commentary on how the draft is unfolding.
While my ego loves that I’ll be the center of attention, one of my favorite parts of the night is you’ll be able to follow along at home while adding your own commentary. We’re trying out a program called Cover It Live which allows you to read our running commentary while also adding your own comments and feedback to picks, trades and what you’re reading from us. If things work out well tonight then this is a tool we’ll start using next season when we’re covering games in Toronto and Washington.
Please join us at 6:30 pm EST as we kick off the festivities.
