This was too funny not to share:

In Bill Simmons' draft diary he gets to the Nets at #17 where just about everyone expected them to take Sean Williams from BC. He writes:

"It's only fitting that Stern's microphone went out right as he was announcing New Jersey's pick at 17: troubled BC star Sean Williams, the perfect rebounder/shot-blocker on paper for the the Nets. Unfortunately, Sean couldn't attend the draft because he's home watching "Planet Earth" on Blu-ray and eating three bags of Doritos at once."

I just laughed out loud in a meeting...who cares its Friday

Any betting on how long he stays in the league?

so the dude sold some pot in college. who couldn't use the extra scratch in college? at least he wasn't taking cash from boosters.

i'd be more concerned about his lack of offensive skill than his background.

Wait... why is selling pot not as bad as taking $$ from boosters? Am I missing something here?

Isn't it all about character? Sell some pot, steal some computers, take money from boosters -- its all the same.
