He's rapped for you. He's dressed like a Creamsicle for you. And now, Tennessee Volunteers coach Bruce Pearl will analyze this year's NBA Draft for you.

NBA TV and NBA.com is providing a ton of exclusive content leading up to and during the June 25 draft, including "Pearl's Gems" blog entries and blogs from prospects Blake Griffin, Tyler Hansborough and Stephen Curry.

From a Turner Sports release:
In addition to pre and post-draft analysis, an expert panel of announcers including host Rick Kamla, analysts Kenny Smith, Steve Smith and Pearl will provide Instant Analysis of key draft selections that will be available exclusively on NBA.com.  NBA Insider David Aldridge will be on-hand for NBA TV and NBA.com with breaking news updates about trades. In addition, reporter Craig Sager will be on hand at Madison Square Garden in New York City to interview players moments after they are selected in the draft via the EA Sports Virtual Green Room, streamed on NBA.com.  NBA Assistant Director of Scouting Ryan Blake will be in New York to provide scouting reports and draft analysis of international players throughout the night.

"The level of interactivity and depth of our 2009 Draft coverage is unprecedented as we deliver broad professional analysis and exclusive content generated by players and fans across our TV, Internet and Wireless platforms" said Bryan Perez, SVP and GM of NBA Digital. "We are thrilled to add Bruce Pearl to our industry leading analyst team as he brings great energy and insight having coached against many of the draft prospects on a collegiate level."
