I posted it yesterday in one of the other posts but in hindsight, I should have made it a separate thread. Plus the expansion talk has kinda dominated things.How sad. Didn’t even know the draft was last night.
They should have waited until at least the Olympics was over. Even if the expansion talk had not happened, it still would have been the third story of the sports news. Olympics, baseball trade deadline were bigger stories than the NBA draft.I posted it yesterday in one of the other posts but in hindsight, I should have made it a separate thread.

It was a good night for the good guys, Primo had to be one of the biggest surprises going at 12 ... last check most believe he would go late first round to thr Nuggets. Herb going 35 was huge as well, definitely proud of both our guys! Herb definitely put it the work for this.
If my memory is correct out of the quartet of Sexton, Petty, Reese, and Herb, Herb was the first one to hit a 3 point shot in his very first game against Memphis. He had flashes of being a good offensive player his first couple of seasons which is why he was considered a potential first round draft pick as a freshman. Against OU that year he scored double digits to go along with his usual great defensive play. I always thought it was a matter of confidence with him.A couple of years ago, Herb was one of the worst shooters I've ever seen at Bama. He only stayed on the court because of his high B-ball I.Q., hustle and grit.
But when he came back last year with a better shooting touch, it was obvious his potential was about to skyrocket.
I think he'll be a great NBA player because he's the definition of a team player!
