I am not a fan of the NBA. I have probably watched a total of 5 games in my entire life, but I absolutely love college basketball. It is much more competitive and entertaining. Also, there are a lot of hot guys to be found. (I am only 23 so I can still say that without being a total perv!) Last night was the NBA Draft. So that means that many players said goodbye to their college days and joined the pros. This also means that I will no longer know or care what is going on with them. (That’s a lie. There are quite a few players that I really like who were drafted last night. Next season might be the first year I genuinely care what’s going on in the NBA.)
OK, enough about college basketball being far superior to the NBA. Let’s move onto those hot guys. Having talent is really important and goes a long way in the actual draft, but it doesn’t get you far here. Blake Griffin may have been the number one pick last night (and rightfully so…boy is talented!), but he doesn’t make the cut in the Ladies… draft.
Now let the fun begin with the first pick…
Player: Tyler Hansbrough, PF
Drafted By: Indiana Pacers
Tyler Hansbrough may be the most awkward athlete I have ever watched play a sport…EVER! Also, it was really hard to find a picture where he didn’t look like this. (Note to Psycho T: It’s OK to breathe through your nose and blink your eyes every once in awhile.) But despite all that, I still loved him. There is no telling what will become of his professional career, but he had one hell of a college career. And he got to wrap it all up with a much deserved and well earned Championship. And he’s 23 so there is no need to feel dirty about finding him hot.
Player: Stephen Curry, PG
Drafted By: Golden State Warriors
I realize that Stephen Curry may not exactly be what you would call hot. But come one…look at him! Don’t you just want to pinch his cheeks? He is adorable. He was my favorite player in college basketball and that is why I need to vent a little right now. I was so excited when I heard that there was a chance that he might get drafted by the Knicks. That could have been the thing to finally get me into the NBA. The Knicks had the eighth pick; Curry was still available by the seventh. Damn you Golden State!!
Player: Jonny Flynn, PG
Drafted By: Minnesota Timberwolves
I love Jonny Flynn. He is a total hottie and a great player. Anyone who paid even a small amount of attention to the Big East Tournament, particularly the game against Connecticut, has to agree with me. I just realized that Minnesota has a lot of hot athletes. The Twins are loaded with hot players, the Vikings have Adrian Peterson, and now the Timberwolves have Jonny Flynn. Congrats Minnesota sports fans!
Player: Jon Brockman, PF
Drafted By: Portland Trail Blazers, traded to Sacramento Kings
Here is Washington Forward Jon Brockman. He looks like a much better version of Luke Harangody. (That really doesn’t have to do with anything…just thought I would share that.) I really don’t know much about Jon Brockman, but the first pic my google search produced was this one. I immediately knew I had to include him here.
Player: Danny Green, SF
Drafted By: Cleveland Cavaliers
That’s right, another Tarheel. What can I say? Maybe it’s the uniform; it’s a flattering color. He didn’t get nearly as much attention as his teammate Hansbrough, but you have to give him credit for sticking it out all fours years of college. That is very rare these days. He was also a workjorse: He played more games than anyone else in UNC history. But all of that pales in comparison to his amazing dancing skills. That is what really won me over.
Player: Jonas Jerebko, SF
School: None, Sweden
Drafted By: Detroit Pistons
To be honest I was not familiar with this blonde hottie until last night. Upon graduating High School he was offered a scholarship to play basketball for the University of Buffalo. He decided to skip college and play professionally for Sweden. I can’t even keep up with American pro-basketball, so it makes sense that I didn’t know about a professional player overseas. But now that he will be playing in America, I will definitely be keeping my eye on him.
Player: Victor Claver, SF
School: None, Spain
Drafted By: Portland Trail Blazers
Note to self: Start paying attention to professional basketball in other countries. The Knicks got their own sexy foreign player last year. Unfortunately New York didn’t have as much luck this year, but there were a bunch of hotties from other countries that teams had to choose from. The Trail Blazers got lucky when they drafted this hottie from Spain.
Player: Austin Daye, SF
Drafted By: Detroit Pistons
As a whole, the city of Detroit may not be doing so great, but this is the second player on this list that their team drafted. That’s gotte cheer up a few people. Austin Daye sort of fits into the same category as Stephen Curry, but that’s okay. There is nothing wrong with just being cute in my book. As a side note, I would just like to point out how much Daye looks like Jimmy from Degrassi. (Yes I used to watch Degrassi. Don’t judge me!)
Player: A.J. Price, PG
Drafted By: Indiand Pacers
I was just stating how lucky Detroit was in the draft; The same could be said about Indiana. First they got number one hottie Tyler Hansbrough and then they picked up A.J. Price in the second round. Good job Pacers! Ignoring the sweat, I think we can all appreciate Price’s smile. He also has some really great arms.
Player: Jeff Teague, PG
School: Wake Forest
Drafted By: Atlanta Hawks
Last but definitely not least is Jeff Teague from Wake Forest. There really isn’t much to say about Teague except that he’s a hottie. Also he kept up with the whole theme of my little draft. I tried not to take any teenagers. Jeff Teague is 21…no creepy feelings about ogling him.
