2011 NBA Draft day is upon us, analysis and recap of events

It all began All-Star Weekend when NBA commissioner David Stern gently picked up the Sacramento Kings and placed them on the tracks of the craziest roller coaster ride known to man.  For months, the ride went up and down, side to side, splashing through pools of water, until a reprieve of sorts brought the ride to an abrupt halt.  While plenty of fans were able to get off and take a break, the hardcore fan couldn't quite lift the hand rail and got locked in for another turnaround.That turn?  Draft season.We've done our best to bring you top notch draft coverage through prospect profiles, podcasts with some of the most relevant guests and mock drafts from a variety of sources, so here is a recap....

Cowbell Kingdom Podcast Ep 9: Tom Abatemarco, Colorado Assistant Coach

A double-dip day for the Cowbell Kingdom podcast...Alec Burks - a real option for the Sacramento Kings at seven?  We touched base with Coach Tom Abatemarco, formerly with the Kings, now an assistant at Colorado, for his take on the former Buffalo shooting guard.Highlights
  • On Burks' shooting: "He has to get his base better on his feet.  His feet are parallel, too close together.  And we worked with him a little bit on changing that, but it's not going to happen overnight."
  • On Burks' defense: "Sometimes Alec cruised and he was guilty of that.  And as the year went on, he didn't cruise."
  • On Burk's work ethic: "If you asked me this question earlier in the year, I would've said he really needed to improve.  But as the year went on, his work ethic got better and better.  He was in the office, seven in the morning watching tape with the coaches, he was doing extra work.  I mean he really stepped it up and I think he has to step it up even more.  I think there's still room for growth.
