Golden State doesn't have draft picks to make news

The Warriors will put out a tempting spread for the media tonight, a real fine dinner. They promised.

The meal is the only thing clear cut about tonight, NBA Draft Night. The Warriors are in the rare position of having no draft picks, as in zero, as in the two rounds of the draft could whiz by and yours truly could gorge out on food with no news. It's always good to season your food with news.

I mean, this headline hardly would stop the presses: "Warriors draft no one, but baked beans satisfy."

To explain why the Warriors don't have a single draft pick is almost too arcane for the normal brain. The short form is they lost their No. 1 pick in 2008 when they got Marcus Williams from the Nets. Williams then played only nine games for the Warriors because Don Nelson didn't think he could play. This year's second-rounder went to the Knicks for David Lee.

And in the Warriors' case, one plus one equals zero.
