What to Expect on TrueHoop this Draft Week
June, 24, 2009
All day all week: All kinds of innovative draft coverage, as it happens live from New York, where we will be meeting with all kinds of top draft prospects over the next couple of days. Some of the things on the schedule:
- Wednesday afternoon, 4 - 6 p.m. ET: Live chat with TrueHoop and (one at a time) Tyreke Evans, Brandon Jennings, Stephen Curry, Jordan Hill, Tyler Hansborough and Hasheem Thabeet. Be ready with your questions!
- Wednesday evening, starting at 6 p.m. ET: Marc Stein is once again playing in Steve Nash's magnificent soccer charity game, featuring players like Nash, Tony Parker, Jason Kidd, Grant Hill, Chris Bosh, Raja Bell, Claudio Reyna, Thierry Henry, Javier Zanetti, Salomon Kalou, Ryan Babel, Giovanni van Brockhurst, Mathieu Flamini, Ivan Cordoba, Adrian Mutu and others. Assuming Stein will be on the bench for a fair chunk of that game, he'll whip out his Blackberry to cover the whole thing as it happens. Follow his mid-game commentary here on TrueHoop, and/or on Marc's Twitter feed.
- The TrueHoop Network is exploding with draft coverage. This new Twitter feed can keep you up to speed every time a network blog posts something. Hardwood Paroxym hosts a network draft conversation.
- Thursday there will be some special content during the day, followed by live, via Twitter (and simulcast right here, like the Finals) coverage from Madison Square Garden as the evening unfolds. In addition, the TrueHoop Network bloggers will collaborate on a massive, rolling, evening long group chat.
