…well, you know the rest of the saying. I can’t help but post about the NBA Draft today. Those of you who read regularly know I’m a big Bulls fan, seeing as I grew up in Chicago.
So today the Bulls had the No. 1 pick and decided to go with the hometown special, picking Chicago’s own Derrick Rose. Here’s hoping it works out better than Eddy Curry in 2001.
I was kind of hoping the Bulls would go after Michael Beasley out of Kansas State. I thought he was a better fit, personally, and I don’t usually like sticking with the hometown fave. No doubt, Rose is solid. I just hope this isn’t a Jason Williams redux — he was supposed to be the next big point guard, too. Granted, his motorcycle had more to do with derailing that prospect than anything else.
Kudos to the Raptors for pulling off the Jermaine O’Neal trade. If healthy, he and Bosh should be quite the tandem. I followed the Raps some up here this past season and even got out to a couple games at the ACC — once to see if Dwight Howard’s arms are actually as big as they appear on TV and once to see if the Bulls were really as bad as I was reading. Yes, and yes.
Oh, yeah, baseball. Jays are up, 7-1…
