Local Notes On The NBA Draft
Carolina fans have a lot to cheer about despite the upcoming season. We can go see the Bobcats and the Hawks play to watch Marvin, May and Felton. Charlotte probably had the most effective draft with Felton and May, not particularly for the talent acquired, but for the increase in ticket sales that is about to happen at the new stadium in Charlotte. Atlanta did good as well with future NBA superstar Marvin Williams and Arizona guard Salin Stoudamire.
Nine high school kids were taken today in the last draft allowing high school students to be drafted. Fourteen foreign players were taken as well. I know with this draft class I will be watching the NBA again. I have been team skipping for a while now. Phoenix for Barkley, then Vince Carter in Toronto, then the Nets for Vince, now I am going to toss it up between Atlanta and Charlotte, I need to see who fits me better. Hell I might route for both teams.
