Top Point Guard Picks Kentucky

So hotshot point guard prospect John Wall chose to play for Kentucky and new coach John Calipari. No surprise there. Here's the interesting part of the story -- interestingly, never mentioned in this story:

Wall, who must still gain academic eligibility, faces one other minor hurdle. He is due in court May 29 to answer to a misdemeanor breaking and entering citation. He is eligible for a first-offender program in which punishment is usually community service. As a first offender, he can also petition the court to remove the citation from his record.

You might think that nearing the end of the school year, academic eligibility would be cleared up. You might think that breaking and entering might be a deterrent on some level. And you would, of course, be wrong.

It was extremely gratifying to see that John Wall chose Kentucky - and did not even remotely consider Maryland

I was extremely happy that the Wizards lost in the lottery.

The top 5 picks will be - in this order

1 - Tyler Hansbrough - North Carolina
2 - Danny Green - North Carolina
3 - Ty Lawson - North Carolina
4 - Blake Griffin - Oklahoma
5 - Wayne Ellington - North Carolina

Maryland basketball will finish with a 15-16 record this upcoming season
- No NCAA Bid
- No NIT Bid

Maryland football will finish with a 2 - 10 record.

Carolina Blue - Carolina WHITE - Go Tar Heels - Let's go Tar Heels - NCAA Champs

So at what point will the WaPo man/woman up and block this idiot's postings. Its one thing to diss the Terps who actually went to the NCAA tourney and won a bowl game but yet another to denegrate the wounded Wiz.
