They're soon-to-be millionaires but still fun kids

VANCOUVER, British Columbia -- Making two cross-country trips in two days is not my idea of fun, but spending the day with six surefire locks for the NBA draft made all that traveling well worth the effort, and then some.

But on Thursday, I got that opportunity in Vancouver as EA Sports invited Texas' Kevin Durant, North Carolina's Brandan Wright, Kansas' Julian Wright and Florida's Corey Brewer, Joakim Noah and Al Horford to its facilities to capture the players' likenesses and signature moves for NBA Live '08. In addition, I conducted a 45-minute individual workout with each player, parts of which you will be able to see during the NBA draft on ESPN June 28.
