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.
