From the green room to the show room…
On Sunday night, we had some heated discussions on WXYC SportsRap. First off, should Tywon Lawson, Wayne Ellington, and Danny Green stay in the draft? As of this afternoon, despite the hairline fracture in the elbow, Danny Green won’t tap-out. I’m telling you people…The ‘jacknife’ is tough.
Well, the report from the Milk House was a luke-warm feeling from the NBA Draft pundits, now for the real test…The individual workouts, which are the true make-or-break tests for potential draftees. For your reference pleasures, here are the listings for the workouts.
Lawson has supposedly scheduled: L.A. Clippers (7th pick), Indiana (11), Sacramento (12), Washington (18) and Denver (20)
Ellington has scheduled: Seattle (4, 24), New Jersey (10, 21), Sacramento (12) and Toronto (17).
Green has scheduled: Miami (obviously not for No. 2, but the Heat do have No. 52 in the second round), Washington (18, 47), Cleveland (19) and San Antonio (26, 45 and 57). And supposedly with Toronto (17)
We also touched on a lot of topics such as UNC basketball’s fortunes for next year, UNC Baseball, and from this SportsRap veteran, the surprisingly rambunctious subject of whether or not Kimbo Slice is a worthy contender and poster-boy for UFC and MMA. I still stand on the side that boxing is a stronger art, and I understand the take-down action.
Yet, I’m still wondering what is the difference between a cage fight and a street brawl between two bouncers.
Personally, I think the same caliber of fights went down in the ’90s between wrestlers and the meatheads who came into town…Even after a year of Gracie schooling, I’m wondering what that difference is. However, my co-hosts disagree, and I can understand…Damn, that Red Bull generation wants that action…;) I have to admit that in the future boxing’s demand may strictly derive from the inner cities. The time is ticking deep into night for a classic pastime.
Check out this week’s listen here. Tune in next week on Sunday night between 9-10PM on wxyc.org or via iTunes under the ‘Eclectic’ section of iTunes radio.
P.S. Dear, Mr. Green, Danny Green has proven his toughness…Now, come on home. Let him get that jumper steady, and he’s a lock next year for the first round.
To the Floor,
