Anyone ever attended the NBA Draft?

Every year they have the NBA draft in NYC. I believe it's in the Paramount Theatre at Madison Square Garden. Has anyone been to it? I would like to go this year and watch some of the big names like Oden and Durant. Can we buy tickets for this through ticketmaster? Is booze/food available for sale during this event? Any past experience would be helpful. Thanks!

I went once. My dear lord was it boring. A ton of waiting, and watching 1000 people on their cell phones. After the guys that are actually in the building, it gets real old, real quick (or slow). Didn't stay the whole first round.

I went to it when it was in Detroit in 1993 (Webber, Penny Hardaway, Mashburn, etc). Very boring, as Josh says, gets old quickly after the first 10 picks or so. Most of our fun was that from our seats, we could see them putting names up on the board as soon as the pick came in, so we started yelling each pick before Stern would even walk out.
