Seth Curry will get a long look from an NBA team. I hope that team is not the Charlotte Bobcats. Pressure here on the player to perform and the team to retain him would be tremendous. Let him go to city in which neither his older brother or father played and show what he can do. What can he do? He can get open. He can play a little point. And he can shoot the three.
Speaking of perform, a reader wrote to say that the fellows in his barbershop think Duke's Mason Plumlee will be a better pro than Nerlens Noel. If you need a reason to grow your hair, this is it.
C.J. Leslie of N.C. State has NBA talent. Be interesting to see if he proves it.I liked the Cody Zeller pick much more after hearing Rod Higgins and Rich Cho explain their rationale. But I still don't like it.
The Boston-New Jersey trade is a blockbuster that makes sense for both teams. New Jersey gets better and Boston, which was going nowhere with old players, gets younger. But poor Gerald Wallace. The man invests what he has in the game. He gives up his body. He is still the most beloved player in Bobcats' history. And he goes from Charlotte to Portland to New Jersey/Brooklyn and, now, to Boston. And he's only 30.
No matter what you thought of the picks of your team or any other, that was a compelling draft. If you were bored, the NBA is not your sport. David Stern was hilarious. He's funnier than Roger Goodell. I'm serious.
I've heard several commentators say that Aaron Hernandez's problem is that he hangs with a bad crowd. Couldn't other members of the crowd say the same thing about Hernandez?
