Pro basketball has never held my interest. The NBA playoffs are in full swing, and my only question is…
“Any former UK players still in the mix?”
When pro ball and UK intersect, I’m in…if only briefly. That’s why I’m stoked about tonight’s NBA draft lottery, which takes place at 8pm right here in New York City.
With seven UK Wildcats in the lottery–and freshman forward Karl-Anthony Towns the projected #1 overall pick–I can’t wait to watch the action on ESPN.
As soon as my Wildcats find a home, I will wish them well, and then probably not think about pro ball again (until they start making headway and headlines for their respective teams).
That shouldn’t take long.

Dear Taxi TV and NBC Sports:
It’s March, the most wonderful time of the year. The month that means one sport and one sport only — basketball.
So how come your featured sports headlines list everything but?
(And yes, I scrolled down. It wasn’t there either.)
The conference tourneys are underway. NCAA Selection Sunday is this week. Can’t you feel it??!
Get with the program, guys.

It’s Only a Play, which is currently in previews at the Gerald Schoenfeld Theatre on Broadway, has an embarrassment of stars in its cast.
F. Murray Abraham. Matthew Broderick. Stockard Channing. Rupert Grint. Nathan Lane. Megan Mullally.
And the book by Terrence McNally is hilarious — as topical as this week’s headlines and taking swings at every celebrity in Hollywood (including a few on stage).
The laughs just keep on coming.
But if you are lucky enough to experience this hysterical evening, the real star is the one face you don’t recognize in the photo — newcomer Micah Stock, who makes his Broadway debut amongst this group of A-listers. His deadpan delivery, spot-on timing and musical number (that is a perfect send-up of Broadway itself) brought down the house and the actors on stage.
It’s Only a Play, but it’s the best one I’ve seen in years.
