My Favorite Pick In Today's Draft: Pendergraph

 

Here's why:

"Sure, every player selected in the NBA draft will say that he’s happy just to get drafted. Yet, few of those individuals can truly say that were selected by their favorite team. Jeff Pendergraph can claim that distinction. The former ASU forward was initially selected by the Sacramento Kings, just to be immediately traded to his desired destination - the Portland Trail Blazers."

In interviews leading up to the draft, Pendergraph didn’t hide his attraction to the Trailblazers. “I really like Portland,” he said in a recent DevilsDigest.com interview, “because I know coach Nate McMillan (father of ASU guard Jamelle McMillan), they have a good team and everything about that atmosphere is cool.”

 

For one I like it when players are actually fans of the teams they are on, and I think it also helps with work ethic, mind not being soley on the money. Of course in the end he still has to be good, but hey, an upside that we don't know if the other players drafted have.
