Draft Day

Though I watched the NBA playoffs this year because of the Pistons, my interest in basketball typically ends with the NBA Draft, when we get to see where our favorite college players will go. The ACC did fairly well, with 5 players taken among the first 14 picks. 4 of those picks were *ahem* Tarheels, and two of those, Raymond Felton and Sean May were drafted by the Charlotte Bobcats.

Also taken in the first round, UNC's Marvin Williams (Atlanta) and Rashad Mccants (Minnesota), Wake's Chris Paul (New Orleans), and Georgia Tech's Jarrett Jack (Denver). In the second round, Duke's Daniel Ewing was taken with the second pick by the LA Clippers, while FSU's Von Wafer was drafted 7 picks later by the Lakers.

As expected, Duke's Shavlik Randolph was not drafted. What was that kid thinking?

Update: Apologies for forgetting NC State's Julius Hodge, who was drafted by the Denver Nuggets with the 20th pick

Charlotte's picks were brilliant. They desparately need people in the stands. And these picks should do it for them for at least a little while.
