Everyone seems like a winner on Draft Day.Here is a recap of Behind the Basket's pre-draft coverage.

Print it out and keep it handy during the draft so you can sound smart telling the difference between the two big guys from Texas.

Sorting Out All the International Players in the Draft Here you got all of the International players who have a chance of being selected in the first round. Due to how weak the crop of youngsters leaving the NCAA is right now, 3 of the Internationals could be among the 5 best players from this draft class (Kanter, Valanciunas, Biyombo).
