Random thoughts:

1. Most exciting draft in years.
2. I was blown away by what Kelsey Bone said to ESPN after being selected: that she took a risk to come out of school for the draft because she wanted to be on the New York Liberty. Wow.
3. Good for Tayler Hill for going that high. Loved Tianna Hawkins tears of gratefulness, as well as Griner's inability to speak. Skylar Diggins is a true professional.
4. Destiny Williams, Talia Caldwell, Monique Oliver, Markel Walker and Carolyn Davis were mentioned to me on twitter as players who should have been picked. I tend to agree. But this was the deepest draft in a while.
5. As a SoCal resident, I'm very pleased for Layshia Clarendon. The Fever is a great fit for her. On the Pac 12 tip, I also congratulate Davellyn Whyte and Chucky Jeffery.
6. Bill Laimbeer isn't messing around.
7. Don't hand the trophy to the Mercury just yet.
8. Contemplating Sylvia Fowles and Elena Delle Donne....and it's scary.
9. Who looks stronger: Phoenix, Chicago or New York?
10. Is Whitney Hand really going to be able to play?
11. The Shock has already been tweeting ticket deals that involve Skylar Diggins. The Mercury has a campaign going that involves a 77-foot banner of Brittney Griner and temporary street renaming. Let the games begin.
12. Training camp begins May 5.
