How’s Justin Jackson Playing in the Portsmouth Invitational? ☆

There are NBA assistants assigned to every team. It’s not really to help guys get drafted. Only Fuquan Edwin, 29th pick of round 2, is in the Draft Express mock. This is more of a way to start to build a career...

I'm on Vacation

Florida weather is much better than Minnesota.  I'm not saying I won't post at all for the next two weeks (two weeks!) but just want to leave this post here so nobody thinks I quit.  Not yet anyway. Also I'm a big fan of Roberto Nelson from Oregon State. Too bad those teams have always been horrible.
