As you surely know, the NBA draft was last night. Derrick Rose, Michael Beasley, and OJ Mayo went 1-2-3 to the Bulls, Heat, and T-wolves. That last one is a recipe for disaster. I'm sure a southern California prima donna is going to just LOVE playing in Minnesota all winter long (UPDATE: Kevin Love and Mayo were traded. This is what happens when you write jokes the night before.)
In more interesting draft news, the Knicks went with 6-9 small forward Danilo Gallinari at #6. Knicks fans really wanted a point guard, perhaps Jerryd Bayless or, say, anyone else besides Danilo Gallinari. He was greeted to New York with boos and a nice little chant of "U-S-A!". Ahhhh, New York City. Such an international city, a symbol of America's melting pot. Give us your tired, your poor, your Italian small forwards.
