Full disclosure: I did not watch one second of the NBA Draft last night, but it was clear from searching around the sports blogosphere this morning that ESPN's Jay Bilas was a winner, the network's Andy Katz was a loser, Hornets fans LOVED getting Anthony Davis as the No. 1 overall pick (as shown in the photo above) and Florida State center Bernard James stole the show. Bilas actually acknowledged the various drinking games that people came up with for the Draft based on his love of saying "wingspan," and told viewers to "tip it back." As for Katz, he fell victim to the dreaded "bulging disc." Meanwhile James, who did tours of duty in Iraq and Afghanistan with the Air Force, got a standing ovation and generated a big "U-S-A" chant when he got drafted by the Cavaliers.

Besides the overall ridiculousness of this story, it's also worth nothing that the Diamondbacks (and not Fox Sports Arizona) are the ones suspending Sutton. You'd think a baseball team would have more to worry about than what a broadcaster -- who gets a couple of minutes of camera time each game -- is wearing.
