Chris Mullin can be found hanging himself

Now the NBA isn't really our thing. We think the pro game is boring and really takes the fun out of an otherwise fantastic game.

However we get very excited -- damn-near giddy -- come NBA Draft time. We know all of the college dudes and find humor in David Stern trying to pronounce the names of those damn Euros.

But while happy that it's draft day, the joy subsides when the Golden State Warriors pick. This year, Chris Mullin, white, decided to pick two players who are about 94.82% sure not to make an impact.
The Golden Staters picked Patrick O'Bryant, center, Bradley at no. 9 and Kosta Perovic, center, Europe at no. 38.

Sure O'Bryant is big, but if the guy was a second-team All-MVC, how good can he really be? If he is so dominant, shouldn't he have torn up a small conference like the Missouri Valley?

And for Europe Boy, um, well he's not gonna be good. Sure, he's the next Dirk. But who the fuck isn't these days? And when Cal's Leon Powe is still on the board, why pass on a guy who's gonna fill seats?

So, if you're looking for Chris Mullin -- to, you know, kick his ass -- well, he's beaten you to it.

In other NBA Draft news: Spike Lee was seen in the audience doing scout work for his next movie on the life of NBA Commissioner David Stern.

Heh, well I do like O'Bryant in the long run, but yeah, he should pretty much do nothing this year.

And yeah, basically the Warriors suck as a franchise.

as I heard someone say over on McCoveyChronicles: How fitting that the Warriors would pick 9th in a draft with 8 good players.

It will take a few years to see if these picks were any good, but we can't see they were awful, yet. We can say the Knicks picks sucked haha.
