I'm admittedly late to the pre-2013 NBA Draft Day hype this season. It's funny what a WE ARE WARRIORS playoff run and no first or second round draft picks will do to you.
At Golden State of Mind the days leading up to the NBA Draft are usually like a count down to Xmas Day. Sadly during most of the Cohan-era, Warriors fans were tormented with some Draft Day disasters. It was like waking up early on Christmas Day to open a shiny wrapped present with a stylish ribbon only to find a lump of coal.

I know the 2013 NBA Draft is unlikely to impact the Warriors in the short term, but as hoops junkies and Warriors fans (always holding out for something shocking) I know a ton of us will still be watching closely tomorrow.
Beyond the Box = 3rd Screen
For the previous 8 NBA Drafts, I've used both a 1st and 2nd screen. This year though I'll have a 3rd screen that I've been building with some of my basketball buddies called Beyond the Box on my iPad.
Beyond the Box curates NBA, NFL, MLB, and NHL news, analysis, rumors, videos, photos, and player thoughts from 1,000 media sources and 2,000 players into a real-time, personalized sports timeline.
Golden State Warriors timeline on Beyond the Box is "UNSTOPPABLE BABY!"
For example, the Golden State Warriors timeline on Beyond the Box features real-time updates from folks like Golden State of Mind (can't be stopped!), Comcast Sports Net Bay Area, Matter Steinmetz at CSN Bay Area and 95.7 The Game, Marcus Thompson at Inside the Warriors/ San Jose Mercury/ Oakland Tribune/ Contra Costa Times, and Rusty Simmons at The San Francisco Chronicle, KNBR radio-star Tim Roye, Adam Lauridsen at Fast Break, and of course official Warriors content. There's also real-time updates from players like Stephen Curry and David Lee.
In addition to participating in the open thread for tomorrow's Draft, break out your iPad, download Beyond the Box, and check out the Warriors and NBA Draft timelines on Beyond the Box. It would be fantastic to get your feedback and requests through the app. We want to make sure it's performing at
All-Star Super Star Hall of Famer level by the time the 2013-2014 NBA season begins.
Happy Draft Day!
