Recently, twelve distinguished on-air personalities from the NBA-TNT family — including the two gentlemen pictured above — convened for a fantasy hoops draft, hosted by Yahoo! Sports.
Our participants include two Hall of Famers (Charles Barkley, Reggie Miller), three members of the 1992-93 Orlando Magic (Shaquille O'Neal, Dennis Scott, Terry Catledge Steve Kerr), one former head coach (Mike Fratello), one slam-dunk champ (Brent Barry), one excellent reporter (David Aldridge), one irregular reporter (Craig Sager), two guys who used to terrorize the Big Ten (Smitty, C-Webb), and one guy who used to work with Larry Johnson but now works with Larry Beil (Greg Anthony).

So yeah, it's an impressive crew. You can follow the league all season via this link, if you're some sort of fantasy hoops creeper.
Here's the full draft board...
It's a nine-category head-to-head setup featuring six teams, each with co-managers.
I'm not sure what the winning team receives, but I've heard the losers will be relegated to TruTV, so there's pressure on these guys. Please offer your usual encouragement in comments.
(And no, I can't tell you why Serge Ibaka wasn't drafted. These guys didn't request fantasy consultants, so I had no influence).
