Re: NBA Draft....Hassan

Off the top of my head, Martin worked out for: Celtics Knicks Nuggets Raptors Bucks Mavericks That's 20 percent of the NBA... and that's only what has been reported. There could be more for all we know. Additionally, the Nets could be interested? Good piece here. http://www.silive.com/sports/advance...

Plenty of states with A LOT more D-1 institutions than little Rhody have 0 teams in the Dance. RI has two. Good for the hoops climate in the state.

Also, I believe four straight NCAAs is a record for PC. Not 100% sure on that.
