So the Ball Hogs’ captain is Brian Scalabrine and the coach is Rick Barry. Their roster also lists a “PLAYER X.” That tells me no one else wants to play with Scal and under Barry or that BIG3 has a perfect Scal complement in mind but is waiting for some reason to announce. Paul Pierce could be playing his final NBA game on Sunday, should the Clippers lose. HMMMMM?
Just another league for Ivan Johnson to get banned from. (Please don’t tell him I said that.) The Three-Headed Monsters (seriously guys?) has Jason Williams and Rashard Lewis, and Gary Payton is coaching, so this is already my favorite team.
Finally, a team without the NO. 3 in its name! Power, led by Cuttino Mobley and Corey Maggette, can’t pick Elton Brand because he’s not participating. So they get the best young-ish big man in 34-year-old Warrick.
The Knicks would simultaneously be bummed to see Fultz and Ball off the board and thrilled to jump up from No. 7 to No. 3. The next best thing to a franchise point guard is a young two-way wing like Jackson. He can set the tone defensively and also give the Knicks someone to attack the rim when they have Cheap Baseball Jerseys Kids the ball.

It will be the highest draft selection since the franchise moved to Dallas, surpassing the 5th overall pick in 1996 that was used on defenseman Richard Jackman. You’d have to follow the organization’s lineage back to the Minnesota North Stars days to find a time when there was a selection even higher still, all the way back in 1988, when a young phenom named Mike Modano was taken 1st overall. You may Echl Cheap Jerseys have heard of him and the long, impressive career that he would go on to have.
