Why is Marcus not shown when he was selected?

The way the draft works is this... When a player is picked he shakes the commissioner's hand then makes his way down through a sea of media spots. TV, radio, print, etc. In order to get video of Markieff in his moment — and since I had no way of knowing when Marcus would be picked — I had to stick with Markieff and was back with him when Marcus' announcement was made.

It's a bummer, but that's the breaks. Same thing happened last year with Cole and Xavier. I was back with Cole when Xavier was picked. Learned about that one via the TVs in the interview room.
