The 2015 NBA Draft is just hours away and the top basketball prospects from around the world have gathered in New York City in hopes of hearing Adam Silver call their name tonight at Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Among the 19 players invited to gather in the green room during the NBA Draft are top talents such as Karl Anthony-Towns (Kentucky), Jahlil Okafor (Duke), D’Angelo Russell (Ohio State), and Emmanuel Mudiay (Congo). There is no doubt all of these guys have earned their invitation to the green room and will be called on stage early tonight.
However, there is always one prospect sweating it out and cursing his agent as name after name is called and he is left to fiddle with his smart phone in the green room. For that player, this draft night experience will be torture. For us as viewers, it will be very uncomfortable to witness. Think Jameer Nelson at the 2004 NBA Draft.
So the question here is who will be the last man sitting in the green room at the 2015 NBA Draft?
