The news couldnt possibly be much worse.

Jonny Flynn has been selected by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the 8th pick. Now my dreams of Nate RobinsFLYNN will never come to fruitition. I wasted all this time on this masterpiece.......

or is this the beginning of a light at the end of the tunnel for the knicks?
Here's how i see it:
Knicks recieve:
Jonny Flynn
T'Wolves Recieve:
Jordan Hill/Al Harrington
Chris Duhon/Quentin Richardson.
UPDATE:as i'm typing this..... Wayne Ellington goes to the t'wolves too!
i'm getting too excited over here.
anyway, just my spin on how flynn will come to NY.

The Official SU Sports Dead Period

Only three more months until football starts, and I can't wait for the first reports of the sights and sounds of summer practice. The clashing of plastic on plastic in the mild Syracuse sunshine, and hopefully the absence of the ill-fated Greg Robinson "thud drills." Will definitely post more once the pigskins start flying ladies and gentlemen, but I wanted to throw it out there that

a) I will still be sharing all thoughts relating to Orange football on this site and

b) I'm not dead.

Our NBA Draft, By the numbers part 1:JONNY!

With the NBA draft approaching, the pre draft measurements have been made public and with that the speculation on who is going where can begin. Here's my take on the 3 guys we have in the draft and the physical attributes they bring to the table.

PG Jonny Flynn
5'11 without shoes
-Really not an issue when you're a guard, there's smaller guys out there on the floor. MUCH smaller. What was Spud Webb, like 5'3. We'll take it.

196 pounds
-he's got quite the muscles for a smaller guy. i'm 4 inches taller and 40 pounds lighter, so jonny's been hitting the weights, which is a definite key to nba success. Although combined with an inability to finish, it could be a waste of time(I'm looking at YOU Paul Harris!).

6'4 wingspan
-if he was a center, i'd call that pathetic. but for a 5'11 point guard, this is awesome news. Many people believe that a person's wingspan is as much as their height. so A+ on his wingspan.

40 inch vertical.
-I'm speechless. that's the best in the draft.

10 bench reps
-Very, Very good for a guard. Like i said earlier, the kid's got some guns

And he goes to..........
Where else do i want to put him, going with the 8th overall pick to the New York Knicks, which seems like a realistic placement. For a change my opinion may not fail me.

Coming tomorrow:Paul Harris

Slow news?

Last couple of weeks have been slow for news and i've had a lot to do outside of the national title game and stuff. here's whats going on folks.

Word on the street is former SU Football player Quinn Ojinakka has been arrested following a domestic dispute. Police say that apparently he shoved his wife down a flight of stairs, then spit on her. Devo, you've been one upped.

Athlon Has us ranked 80th in their annual big east preview, now 80th may STILL seem worthless until you realize that many polls have us out of the top 100. and now the investigation begins, who paid off their writers?

Paul Chiara is now a member of the panthers, joining such brave, greg robinson coached souls like joe fields and the AMAZING Tony Fiametta. Who woulda thought ANYONE would be making a living from his coaching?

Coming Later:Who on earth is going to draft jonny flynn?
