DBD 6.27.08 Congrats! Edition

Congrats to all the NCAA men's basketball players drafted into the NBA yesterday.  Lots of Pac10 players.  And a special congratulations to Ryan Anderson (who went to Yellow Fever's beloved Nets) and Devon Hardin (who went to the Sonics). 

Here's a SFGate article on it.  For the Dubs fans amongst us, they took some dude in the 1st round named Anthony Randolph.

If you didn't see it in the thread yesterday, Cal is resupplying the tree sitters.  A little.   It is controversial, but I, for one, think it is a positive thing.

I definitely think that the tree-sitters are done for.  For the first 18 months, they come and go as they pleased.  Now, they are stuck up there.  It's really only a matter of time.  We already saw two come down. 

New Jersey view on Anderson.  It pales in comparison to this article from the Boston Herald.  That article talks about both Anderson and Hardin's draft parties. 

 

"It feels like 100 pounds has been lifted off of my body." The 6-foot-10 Anderson, who is the first Cal player to be selected in the first round since guard Ed Gray in 1997 (22nd to Atlanta), felt he had a good workout and interview with the Nets earlier this month. Scouts told him that he would have to work on his strength, quickness and defense, but there was no question about his ability to shoot. During a remarkable sophomore season at Cal, Anderson hit 41 percent of his 3-point attempts (64-for-156) and was an 87 percent free throw shooter. He also averaged 9.9 rebounds per game.

 

 

While Anderson’s wait was relatively short, former Cal teammate DeVon Hardin’s emotions were on hold from the time the last few picks of the first round were announced. The suspense finally ended when Seattle chose the center with the 20th selection of the second round (50th overall).

Hardin, who held his draft party at a downtown Oakland restaurant, then immediately hugged former Bears teammate and current Boston Celtic Leon Powe as his emotions bubbled to the surface.

Also, Derek Trucks is coming to town at the end of July.  He's a great guitarist and you should check him out.

Congrats to all the people drafted yesterday.  And especially our beloved UC Cal Golden Bears!  Go Bears!
