When the San Antonio Spurs' first round pick was announced during the NBA Draft on Thursday, I was amazed that it wasn't a European draft-and-stash guy. Amazement turned to surprise, and surprise to intrigue. Kyle Anderson, a two-year player out of UCLA, was described by ESPN's panel as "the best passer in the draft" and " the most unique" player in college. They showed clips of him passing as I fell in love with this Boris Diaw-esque series of spins leading to a pass for an open dunk.

Well, I immediately knew what I needed to do: make use of SBNation's vast blog network to find someone who'd been watching Anderson as obsessively as I watch the Spurs, and invite him to have a conversation about the newest Spur. And so here we are. The conversation is happening right now, and this page will update every time a reply is posted. Follow along, and join in the discussion in the comments.
