Today's Date in NBA History

(Boulder-CO) Today's date is June 27th, and on this day:
'89- For the first time ever, the NBA Draft was broadcast live in prime time by TBS from the Felt Forum in New York. Louisville center Pervis Ellison was the first player selected overall, by the Sacramento Kings.

'01- Kwame Brown of Glynn Academy in Brunswick, Georgia became the first high school player selected No. 1 overall in the NBA Draft when the Washington Wizards selected him at the Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Pau Gasol of Spanish League powerhouse F.C. Barcelona, chosen third overall by the Atlanta Hawks, became the highest selection ever who had not played high school or college basketball in the United States until last night's 2008 draft.
Enjoy your day!

ThaAnswer said... has some news that Sam Cassell is looking to play one more year and is considering the Nuggets. (Is that a good thing or bad thing?)

And also Kirk Hinrich could find his way to Denver.

I'm know I'm stretching for news, I hate the offseason!
