Now for the NBA draft, otherwise known as The Calm Before LeBron.
In brief, Washington will take Kentucky’s John Wall, who should awaken the Wizards from their deep sleep as if kissed by a prince.
Then Philadelphia will take Ohio State’s Evan Turner, who should awaken the 76ers, etc.
Aside from the premium picks, however, Thursday’s draft is merely final maneuvers for July 1, when LeBron James and a superstar-studded class with Dwyane Wade, Amare Stoudemire, Chris Bosh and Joe Johnson are officially free agents.
Not surprisingly, everyone is in line behind James, who reportedly will visit five teams: the Knicks, Nets, Bulls, Heat and Clippers.
