The 2006 NBA Draft was held last week – My main man Dee Brown was taken 45th by the Utah Jazz. Initially I was not happy, I was like come on people – Dee is better than Shannon Brown and even his own former teammate Augustine but yet he was taken way after them. Then After I thought about it – I realized this is a good thing – Dee and Deron Will Be Back on the Court together again. I MAY ACTUALLY start to like NBA BALL. I hate to watch the NBA – hate it – But if Dee and Deron play together like they did at Illinois – I MAY be GLUED to the TV. All we need is a trade for Luther Head and Auggie and Utah would almost have the Illini team of 2005 that went to the National Championships. THAT WOULD BE AMAZING TO see them all back on the Court together. I hate to see Auggie split up from the group.
I am estactic about Dee and Deron playing Ball together again – I can’t wait to watch this upcoming NBA Season and there may be a New UTAH JAZZ fan out there now. I will miss Dee in the ILLINI ORANGE – but life must continue to move on and he gave us ILLINI 4 great years! Hopefully, the Illini will be able to rebuild their team and be back on Top again soon!
The only thing missing from this Blog – which is why I waited so long to post, because I was waiting to see if what I was looking for surfaced and it has not yet – Is a Picture of Dee at his Press Conference (which my mom saw) He was wearing some BIG HUGE Fabulous Shades and a Plaid Suit. I am dying without this picture. Oh well…maybe someday I will find it somewhere and post it!
