Now that the Miami LeBrons have successfully bought another NBA championship, it's finally time for this year's crop of exceptional college basketball players to find out where they'll be making money next season.

Spokane hoops fans will have their eyes on the draft board this evening as Gonzaga's own Kelly Olynyk, who announced this spring that he'd forego a redshirt senior season to play pro ball, waits to hear where he'll start his NBA career. currently has him as the #17 pick and headed to Atlanta in their latest mock draft.

The draft begins tonight at 4:30 pm on ESPN. 

Earlier this week, Olynyk and his long, luscious Canadian hair, sat down with Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose of ESPN's for a "job interview." Check out the video and see how he did. Personally, I'd hire him, but we don't have much use for post moves and dunks in the newspaper business.
