There are tons of NBA draft links to get to, but let's start with one that isn't really based on tonight's festivities. The Big Lead is holding its own draft lottery -- one that consists of NBA wives and girlfriends. Coming in at No. 3 is Hot Clicks favorite, Hope Dworaczyk, who used to date Jason Kidd. Notice, I said "used to." Dworaczyk told me this morning that she and Kidd are no longer dating, but they are still good friends. She also said, "I've been single for a while. It's definitely time to start dating and putting time into personal relationships." Gentlemen, start pleading your cases.
When I heard this morning that Shaquille O'Neal was traded to Cleveland, the first thing I did was go to his Twitter page. The Suns wallpaper is still up and he hasn't made many comments about the deal. It looks like he may have even found out about it from a Tweeter, because this was one of his few Tweets last night, "I didn't hear dat yet," followed by "I dnt have cable." Anyway, here are 20 Cleveland-inspired Shaq nicknames.

Hot Clicks is a little late in mentioning the sad passing of Ed McMahon, but Rumors & Rants does a nice job honoring the late-night icon by giving this feature on sports' all-time great sidekicks.
