Still on vacation, but wanted to send some props to former Kinston star Herbert Hill, who was selected by the Utah Jazz in the second round of the NBA draft. I really think this is a great place for Herbert to go and it’s a great place for him to begin his pro career. Congrats to Herbert and his family.
Other NBA Draft thoughts:
- Do you think Josh McRoberts is regretting his decision to leave Duke? A second-round selection is not guaranteed a spot and McRoberts hired an agent, leaving him unable to go back to Durham.
- I usually can’t stand Stephen A. Smith, but I have to agree with him on his analysis of Charlotte trading the rights to Brandan Wright to Golden State. It’s insane to think that the Bobcats are going to give an above-average player $48 million over the next four years.
- When did Spike Lee become an NBA expert? The way ESPN was fawning over him tonight was disgusting. I am as much an NBA expert as freaking Spike Lee.
