Let's get right to it. Ten simple rules. Everyone wins. Good luck, be safe and enjoy.
Note: Don’t want people getting too bombed too quickly so each rule applies to taking a drink of beer, wine, etc. Though I’ve added some bonus rules for those folks (read: Bobcats fans) who might want to take a shot or twelve.
Take a drink...
1: ...any time someone says “wingspan”, “upside”, “tweener”, or “raw”. This alone should get you pretty wobbly. (Take a shot if someone says “freak” or “ambidextrous”).
2: …any time someone says “Dirk”, “Ginobili” or “Pau”. (Take a shot if anyone says "Tskitishvili", “Darko”, or “Thabeet”).
3: …any time Jay Bilas says “has a chance to be special” or “tremendous length”.
4: ...any time a draftee puts on his new team’s baseball cap. (Take a shot if they put it on, take it off, look at it funny, adjust it, then put it back on.)
5: ...any time there is a trade.
6: ...any time a draftee or their mother cries. Take a shot if the father cries.
7: ...any time Stuart Scott pretends to be black. Take a shot if Fran Fraschilla pretends to be black.
8: ...any time the Knicks fans boo, sarcastically cheer or shout ‘ovah-rated’. Take a shot if they genuinely cheer.
9. ...any time someone compares and contrasts Jimmer and Kemba.
And finally, take a big ol' drink when...
10. ...David Stern hands over the draft announcements to Adam Silver at the start the second round.
