Had a great time in NYC. Hung out with the Love fam, before and after the draft. Post draft celebration was a little crazy with the trade to Minny, but it all worked out for the best for Kevin.
Bobbito Garcia aka Cool Bob Love blogs on Kevin Love. Bobbito and K-Love met thru the "Gunnin’ for that #1 Spot" documentary that debuted on Friday. Listen to Beastie Boys' Adam Yauch, who directed and produced Gunnin', being interviewed on NPR.
On the Draft...
7 out of the 30 players drafted in the 1st round matriculated from the Pac-10, including 5 of the first 11 picks.
From TrueHoop: Jeffrey Ma of ProTrade, whose advanced analysis is a part of Portland's draft strategy: "Mark my words: Kevin Love will be the best player in this draft."
Okay, I marked Ma's words. I hope he's right. Mark my words: Beasley will be NBA rookie the year (I wouldn't mind if Kevin proves me wrong), over the next two seasons the Bulls will triple the number of playoff-series wins they've won in the last 10 years (they've only won one series), and Darrell Arthur will get a new agent.
