After all the weeks of talk and speculation, Thursday is finally the day when all the questions are answered.
Who goes first between Jabari Parker and Andrew Wiggins? How seriously do teams take Joel Embiid’s broken foot? Is Dante Exum really an option at the No. 1 pick, or is it all a smokescreen?

With rumors swirling at hurricane-force levels, CelticsBlog writer and draft analyst Kevin O’Connor joined Celtics beat writer Ben Watanabe in this week’s NESN.com Celtics/NBA podcast to talk about Boston’s options with the Nos. 6 and 17 picks. As it turns out, if the Celtics don’t end up acquiring Kevin Love, the boat isn’t going to sink. It just means the next stop in Championship Harbor might be a bit farther off.
