and, you know, i use the analogy, when i speak to people about the nba draft. because you've got five minutes and you're on the clock. and maybe the celtics, maybe the lakers, whatever, take the pick that you wanted. so you have to have plan b, c, d, and e. >> this is a huge year for the franchise in this draft. i'm john clark. we're right back.
