Christmas only comes once a year, but a day after the summer solstice, it's a midyear Christmas of sorts. The NBA Draft is on tonight at 7 p.m., but Al and engineer Isaac Constans don't wait to break it down. From the spectacle to the meaning of the draft, all is revealed on today's Current Sports. The real question, though, is who wore it better: Al, Uncle Ray or Isaac? Following fashion, less important matters are discussed--involving the seismic shakeups that have happened or could this offseason in the NBA. The moves are related to today and how teams' draft preferences could change. Then, Al and Isaac discuss the Detroit Pistons, who hold a glimmer of hope at landing a franchise-changing player with the 12th pick. DeShaun Tate, CBS sports producer and host in Atlanta, joins the show for a preview and tells all about the Dwight Howard move away from the Hawks. He'll be on Friday for a full recap. Ending the show, it's prediction time. Get the top 10 picks, a sleeper and the Pistons' prospect courtesy of Al, Isaac and DeShaun.
