Like, to cover it. Credentialed and all. It's puzzling to me, too.

In any case, I'll be at Basketball Mecca (Madison Square Garden, MSG, etc.) to cover the draft live and in person. I'll have a media pass and everything. I also heard that they feed the media quite well, so if the Rockets make a selection that puts me on the brink of tears, I can go eat my sadness away.

For now, I'm going to post my first (and final) mock draft until I set sail (hop on a plane) for NYC. Once I'm there, you'll be getting all of the latest draft updates and news as soon as I hear them. I'll likely be bored at times, so expect plenty of posting. It's my job and I'm going to do it well, dammit.

Alas, here is a mock draft, just to pass the time:

1. WAS: John Wall

2. PHI: Evan Turner

3. NJN: Derrick Favors

4. MIN: Wesley Johnson

5. SAC: DeMarcus Cousins

6. GSW: Greg Monroe

7. DET: Cole Aldrich

8. LAC: Al-Farouq Aminu

9. UTA: Luke Babbitt

10. IND: Ed Davis

11. NOH: Patrick Patterson

12. MEM: Paul George

13. TOR: Avery Bradley

14. HOU: Eric Bledsoe

15. MIL: Xavier Henry

16. MIN: Ekpe Udoh

17. CHI: Gordon Hayward

18. MIA: James Anderson

19. BOS: Solomon Alabi

20. SA: Damion James

21. OKC: Daniel Orton

22. POR: Hassan Whiteside

23. MIN: Kevin Seraphin

24. ATL: Dominique Jones

25. MEM: Lance Stephenson

26. OKC: Larry Sanders

27. NJN: Jordan Crawford

28. MEM: Elliot Williams

29. ORL: Quincy Pondexter

30. WAS: Greivis Vasquez 

DYWOAHMYGOD WHAT ARE YOU THINKING WHY ARE YOU PICKING THAT DREW BLEDSOE GUY!??!?!! YOU'RE FORGETTING THE OBVIOUS SELECTION!

WHITESIDE. WHITESIDE. WHITESIDE!

Relax. My explanation (and perhaps my will, unless I avoid attack) will be posted on Ridiculous Upside either today or tomorrow. Take care.
