NBA draft > NFL draft

The NBA draft is so much more enjoyable to watch than the NFL’s. It moves more quickly. The telecast has a much smaller cast. And, overall, it doesn’t have that air of overblown importance and ultra seriousness that infects the NFL’s.

The thing is, you get 25 people talking about each pick by the NFL teams, analyzing and analyzing as if we were talking about step-by-step instructions for repairing the Hubble Space Telescope. The NBA picks zip right along with comments from three or four people. That’s true although each draft selection is far more important to an NBA team than to an NFL team. Just look at the size of the respective rosters and how a single player can make such a large impact in basketball.

Plus, when is the last time an NFL team drafted a guy named Omri?
