Will the MAc's 11-year NBA Draft drought end tonight? A few months ago it appeared that a pair of MAC players had a legit shot of hearing their names called in the 2014 NBA Draft, but after Shayne Whittington broke his leg, all our hopes now fall on the broad shoulders of the man they call "The Kraken", Javon McCrea.
McCrea stands as good of a chance as anyone from the MAC in the last decade. He scored 20+ points per 40 minutes in each of his four seasons at Buffalo, something only he and Doug McDermott can claim in this Draft class. He's a unique talent, and a supreme athlete, but he's still considered a possible second-rounder.
We'll find out for sure tonight, in the 2014 NBA Draft. The event begins at 7 p.m. E.T. with a preview show on ESPN (WatchESPN). The actual Draft itself starts at 7:30 p.m. E.T., also on ESPN (WatchESPN).
For the third time in four years those lovable losers by the lake, the Cleveland Cavaliers, have the No. 1 overall pick. Here's the full order, in case you're interested.
