Everyone Is Complaining About Pick-Tipping On Twitter, But The NBA Draft’s Ratings Were Higher Than Ever
Each year, roughly 30-60 seconds before the NBA commissioner walks on stage to announce the latest draft pick, it’s become standard for one or two tweets to appear telling the world exactly what that draft pick is going to be.
