O.K.- Just one more post for the day...Sean Singletary

I have enjoyed going to the JPJ over in Charlottesville and before that over at U-Hall to watch young Sean Singletary play basketball for the UVA Cavilers. Someone asked me the other day how I felt Sean would do at the next level and I responded with "He will be solid if he ends up in the right situation". I was a fan of the young man for the way he handled himself of the court just as much I was of his playing ability.
The only interest I had in the NBA draft was to see if Sean was taken in the second round as I was thrilled to see that he was in the 42ND slot (RD-2,Pick-12) by Sacremento. The slot originally belonged to the Atlanta Hawks but after a trade in the past (I think it was the Mike Bibby deal) it belonged to the Kings.
Whether or not Sean shines in the NBA I will always remember of he thrilled the crowds while wearing #44 for the Cavs!

To give equal time to the Hokie fans around the valley I should add that Deron Washington was taken with the 59TH pick by the Detroit Pistons. Washington played a huge roll in turning around the Hokies program under the direction of Head Coach Seth Greenberg.

Congrats to both players and Good Luck in the NBA

Great post and I enjoyed watching Sean Singletary 4 years at UVA. He will always be remembered as one of the best ever point guards at UVA and the ACC. I can just only imagine too if Gary Forbes who transfered to Mass. and Derick Byars who transfered to Vandy would have stayed at UVA with Singletary what would we have the past 4 years would have been amazing scoring-wise. Wish Singletary the best with Sacramento Kings and also wish Deron Washington good luck with Detriot. I know Deron's mom is happy because me and a friend met her on Friday's game against Miami at the ACC Tourney in Charlotte and she was wishing he would go to a good team with a big market and nowhere where its cold. Detriot seems to be a good place. Good luck to Deron.
