The 2012 NBA Draft took place last night. Anthony Davis was the #1 overall pick to the New Orleans Hornets. All in all, 6 Kentucky Wildcats were drafted, 4 draft picks came from North Carolina, and former Ohio State All-American Jared Sullinger fell to the Boston Celtics at the #21 spot after being projected as a lottery pick for much of the draft process.

Going into the draft, there were reports of multiple trades involving several NBA stars in the works, but the only significant trade that went down was a deal that would send Mavericks forward Lamar Odom to the Los Angeles Clippers and send Mo Williams to the Utah Jazz. The three-team deal between the Mavericks, Clippers and Utah Jazz is still contingent on Williams exercising his $8.5 million player option for next season.


Donovan McNabb says there’s an 80-to-90% chance he’ll play next season. After playing in Philadelphia for 11 seasons in which he was one of the NFL”s top QBs, he’s been relegated to a journeyman the past two seasons, going from Washington, to Minnesota, to being released mid-season last year.
