Inane commentary on a game that deserves far better

Friday, June 27, 2008

From the NBA draft: JaVale McGee will try and make history for the Washington Wizards. For the first time, a son of a former WNBA player has been drafted by an NBA team.

First, good luck to him.

Second, the real history will be made if he makes the team, does well, and the NBA announcers constantly refer to mama-McGee, ESPN cuts to her in the stands, and there are ongoing chats with her about how she coached/taught/supported her son in learning the ropes of the college and pro game.
