Last night it was an unbelievable feeling for me just to watch and hear two of the all time Purdue greats get their name called in the 2011 NBA Draft. It was an honor for me to get a chance to play next to them for three great seasons. All the memories will be cherished forever.
I wish I could have been in Indianapolis anxiously awaiting JJs name to be called with the rest of his great support system. He has always said that he wanted to play in the NBA and help his mom out. His mom is an unbelievable lady who works hard to provide for her children....that trait obviously was carried on to JJ. Now it is his turn to thank his mom and provide for her.
I have never necessarily liked Boston but definitely respected the way they took care of business. As of last night, with the rest of Boiler Nation, I have a little more love for the Celts. So, I just want to send out a special congrats to JJ and Smooge on making their dreams become a reality.
Best Wishes to both of you!!
