James Gist needed to be patient Thursday night at the NBA Draft but patience was a virtue as the San Antonio Spurs picked James in the 2nd round. This is a great fit for James and he should be able to provide some flair off the bench for the dethroned champions. In a blockbuster trade announced at 2AM Minnesota swapped its 4th pick-O J Mayo for Memphis’ 5th pick , Kevin Love as part of a 6 player deal. The Wizards who bypassed Gist in the 2nd round came away with just one player—1st round pick JaVale McGee a 7 foot center from Nevada. I can’t comment on him because I haven’t seen him play but Ernie said this was the big guy he wanted. This pick solidifies the fact that the Wizards will do all they can to resign #0 and #4 (Jamison).
The O’s defeated the Cubs 11-4 as Ken Huff, Brian Roberts and jay Payton continued their timely hitting. Let’s give manager Trembley some kudos for the way he handled the lineup in the National League cities. The O’s go to DC Friday for a 3 game series with a 40-37 record—WOW!!!!!!
On the show Thursday night I mentioned an amazing catch. Here it is http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4SqJz0NgnnE
