NBA Draft 2013: Fear the Sword Community draft wrap-up!

It was about as crazy as you would expect. Due to a last minute family errand, I missed the start and Conrad came up big. Everything worked out and fun was had by all.


First of all, I want to thank everyone who showed up on time for their pick or got me an email with your preferences for your choice. I didn't do a great job (it was hectic, and I showed up late) but you made it a lot easier for me than it could have been. The MVP though, of course, was Kendaru. Because of a lot of trades that happened before the draft, the order was confusing and Kendaru was right on it. He was a worthy commissioner. If David Stern is retiring because he has lost a step, and Adam Silver will bring the NBA back, Kendaru was definitely the Silver to my Stern. So thank you Kendaru. Stop using subject lines and quoting Bleacher Report trades.
