It Is Pride Month After All


Last night’s NBA draft was not especially exciting–besides the top couple of players everyone takes 3-5 years to develop as opposed to seniors stepping in ready to play. There were several trades though, the most interesting was the trade between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Memphis Grizzlies where the key pieces were the trading of third pick OJ Mayo for fifth pick Kevin Love.

Thanks to the trade the league was robbed of a great new possible advertising campaign: The 2009 Memphis Grizzlies, where Gay-Love Happens!

Turns out Bill Simmons and I think alike (Scroll down to 5:23)

    fear of that very ad campaign is probably what prompted that trade. no way that kind of stuff flies in the south…
