New, comments

Here's our first edition of the 2013 NBA Mock Draft. There will likely be some changes as we go along, but this is what we have for now. Check it out.

The NBA Draft is Thursday. More specifically, the 2013 NBA Draft is Thursday, June 27th. We have just under a month until the actual thing, so let's continue doing mock drafts. Here's the unofficial official Fear the Sword mock draft (version 1). Sam Vecenie and I worked together to come up with our order of players, but ended up having to change things slightly.

You can watch us work through the draft, but keep in mind that the order we came up with there is not the order that you're about to see. Those were our initial thoughts, but we went back and revised it slightly. Much of it remains the same, but there are a few alterations. We'll definitely have another couple of versions as the draft gets closer and we get more information from rumors and such.

But for now, here's the 2013 NBA Mock Draft 1.0.
