Don’t know if any of you are still enraptured by the
NBA draft, but it was interesting (and laughable) that Fran Fraschilla was
talking about Pape Sy, the Senegalese 6-7 forward who was just drafted by
Atlanta late in the second round.
Fran said the Hawks were trying to “catch lightning in
a bottle’’ and were hoping to find “the next Roddy Beaubois.’’
What? The next Roddy Beaubois?
Even Roddy Beaubois isn’t the next Roddy Beaubois yet.
It’s amazing how much respect the kid is getting as he
heads into a summer in which he needs to become everything everybody believes
he can be. It’s going to be interesting to see how the kid handles summer
league this year. It was a wide-eyed moment for him last year.
