The NBA Draft can get a bit dull at times, and if your team has a lack of picks (i.e LA Lakers/NY Knicks) then you might become bored and anxious. Consequently a drinking game is the perfect solution. Maybe not “perfect” but most entertaining. So here’s what you do, gather round with your friends this Thursday night (the 28th), make fun of some unibrows, and enjoy the draft with this absurd game.

PLAY AT YOUR OWN RISK

(you probably should not play this)

(…if you do, you probably shouldn’t take shots)

  • If a player from Kentucky or UNC is drafted in the 1st round- 1 shot
  • If Anthony Davis is compared to Kevin Garnett or Wilt Chamberlain- 1 shot
  • If an analyst (ESPN) or fan-held sign makes fun of Anthony Davis’ unibrow- 1 shot
  • If Sam Bowie is mentioned- 1 shot
  • If a slideshow of ugly or outrageous suits is shown- 1 shot
  • If David Stern mispronounces a draft pick’s name- 1 shot
  • If David Stern or a player trips walking to the podium- 2 shots
  • If selected player has a real got girlfriend (at least an 8)- 1 shot
  • If selected player has a nice watch that he didn’t buy- 1 shot
  • If a selected player is from a school/country you’ve never heard of before- 1 shot
  • If Jay Bilas is raving about a player’s wingspan-1 shot
  • If Fran Fraschilla raves about a European prospect- 1 shot
  • If “Empire State Of Mind” plays to display that they’re in NYC- 1 shot
  • If Stuart Scott quotes somebody else (including rap lyrics)- 1 shot
  • If a player is seen crying because they were picked- 1 shot
  • If Dan Gilbert’s son is shown- 1 shot
  • If there’s a 3-way trade- 1 shot
  • If an analyst proposes a new draft system to replace the lottery system- 1 shot
  • If somehow Tim Tebow is mentioned- 2 shots
  • If there’s somehow a reference to Mel Kiper Jr.- 1 shot
  • If you leave before the 2nd round- 1 shot
  • If you change the channel to watch baseball- 1 shot
  • If you watch the entire draft- 1 shot
  • If Rachel Nichols smiles for over 5 straight seconds- 1 shot
  • If Dick Vitale is upset that a Duke or UNC payer hasn’t been taken yet- 1 shot
