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.

I have tennis on the brain this week. Or as Geoff Peterson would say —
I’ve been watching the French Open as much as humanly possibly on this side of the drink.
I bought my tickets to the US Open yesterday — one of the best things about living in New York City — through the American Express advance purchase sale.
(Because membership has its privileges….)
And I am already looking forward to watching Wimbledon over the Fourth of July holidays right here at home.
I hear rumors on Facebook and Twitter that the NBA playoffs are going on somewhere, but seriously — how can people even think about ‘pro’ basketball — when there is so much tennis going on??
