life changing opportunities

in about, oh let's say at 4 pm pacific time, some 18-22 years old phenoms are about to be a millionaire. you know what im talking about, the NBA DRAFT 2009. yes it here and it's about to discombobulate the NBA world. with the Lakers winning the championship this season, NBA teams are quite hungry for that championship. teams are making moves to make their squad lethal and dominant. some teams are rebuilding and making moves to get the best player in the draft. we know the first pick will be playing in Staple Center this year, the Los Angeles Clippers. Blake Griffin from oklahoma state is a highly fluid and coordinated power forward with great strength and body control. he can create his shot impressively facing the basket and has no problem playing inside. explosive finishing around the rim. dominated the college basketball in impressive fashion and is considered the number one pick. very entertaining and plays like Amare Stoudemire.

some notable:
-Hasheem Thabeet, a 7-3 big man from UCONN, with outstanding physical tools, good frame and wingspan. he's also a mobile center who can run the court.
-Ricky Rubio, the most hype point guard from Spain. the kid is only 18 with the skills of Tony Parker and Manu Ginobli. runs a team with savvy point guard skills, outstanding court vision, and really understand the nuances of the pick and roll.
- Stephen Curry. the son of del curry. 6-3 point guard from Davidson. incredible shooter/ scorer, likes to explode to the court. the only player i think thats ready to play in the NBA.
-Brandon Jennings. 6-1 point guard from Lottomatica Roma. a flamboyant and talented point guard who skipped college and decided to play in Europe to get that mula. very athletic with a wide array of moves.
-Jeff Teague. late bloomer from Wake Forest. another point guard that has an instinct like monta ellis. aggresive and confident player. has a great tools defensively.
-Johnny Flynn. another point guard from Syracuse. very clutch, unselfish, fast tempo, dedicated player. excellent ball handling skills. played numerous minutes during the NCAA tournament.

-Terrence Williams (SG Louisville. Trevor Ariza type of player)
-Eric Maynor (PG VCU. Derek Fisher type of player)
-Sam Young (SF Pittsburgh. Joey Graham type of player)
-DeJuan Blair (PF Pittsburgh. Elton Brand type of player)

their lives are about to change once their name is called by the NBA commissioner, David Stern. with the rookie contracts and guaranteed money if drafted in the first round. also, lets not forget about the endorsement from Nike, Addidas, Gatorade, Vitamin Water, Converse, etc. that they make "x" more amount of millions. geesh. i wished i played ball during high school. oh wait, i'm short and i got cut and played golf instead. it's alright. at least i was top two in my squad and all city during 2004.
