NBA Draft Basketball

I got a bit sentimental watching Homewood-Flossmoor grad Julian Wright walking across the stage and shaking hands with NBA commissioner David Stern tonight.

I watched Julian's second high school game, his last high school game and a whole slew of them in between. He was always a class act and it's a pleasure to see him succeed.

Too bad Stuart Scott had to dredge up some ancient recruiting crap in his post-pick interview. Can you believe he's still getting asked about why he didn't choose Illinois?

Somewhere, Derrick Rose was watching and wondering if he will get the same question next year.
