Last evening, 4 members of this year’s National Championship team were headed for the NBA …

Here is where they are going right now:

NEW YORK, NY - JUNE 25:  Jahlil Okafor meets with Commissioner Adam Silver after being selected third overall by the Philadelphia 76ers in the First Round of the 2015 NBA Draft at the Barclays Center on June 25, 2015 in the Brooklyn borough of  New York City.

Jahlil “Oaks” Okafor was drafted 3rd by the Philadelphia 76’ers, befuddling everyone.  That may be the reason for his contemptuous doffing of their hat and half-hearted handshake with the Commissioner !!!

BROOKLYN, NY - JUNE 25:  Justise Winslow poses for a portrait after being drafted number ten overall by the Miami Heat during the 2015 NBA Draft at the Barclays Center on June 25, 2015 in the Brooklyn borough of New York City.

Justise “The Chief” Winslow was curiously drafted at #10 by the Miami Heat, who made no bones about it that they were astounded that he was still available !!!

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - June 26:  22nd overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft Tyus Jones of the Minnesota Timberwolves is introduced to the media on June 26, 2015 at the Minnesota Timberwolves and Lynx Courts at Mayo Clinic Square in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Tyus “The Little Big Man”Jones was scooped up at the #24 spot by the Cleveland Cavaliers, but then promptly traded to the Minnesota Timberwolves, meaning his dream was fulfilled.  He was going home !!!

 

Quinn “The Captain” Cook went undrafted, but was immediately signed to a summer league contract with the Oklahoma Thunder.

He will, once again, have the opportunity to prove himself under the watchful eye of  new Coach Billy “The Kid” Donovan.

Good Luck, Quinny !!!

 

Congratulations to each of you gents !!!
