The NBA draft has always been one of my favorite sporting events. Over the years I have watched it to see great players that I followed during their college careers (when that existed) start their professional careers, tuned in to see incompetent GMs continue to be incompetent and see if I could figure out which picks would be absolute busts.
In the cord cutting age checking out the draft is a little different for some but not really all that difficult. If you have a pay TV service it is super easy.
The ESPN website is the first place to check out the NBA draft Online. ESPN is the home of the draft and will be streaming it live via its website. Just go to the website and click on the tab called Watch. You will have to have a participating TV provider password in order to use this option.
Even if you are not watching it, the ESPN Website will also have live updates on each pick with analysis and info.
