Sports THE FUTURE IS GOOD

Suns and Warriors—GONE. The NBA season is pretty much dead to me, so I looked to the future and the NBA Draft Lottery tonight. Little did I know how good life could be. The big news?
SEATTLE’S GOT THE #2 PICK, DUDES.
What does this mean? It means, Seattle, that we’re gonna get Greg Oden or Kevin Durant, two 19-year-old guaranteed superstars. That we could get Kevin Durant is literally mindblowing (goodbye, Rashard Lewis!). That we could get the big man ODEN? Jesus.
My mind is racing…Could this save the Sonics? We have no GM, no coach and we’ve got the #2 pick?! WTF. This should save the Sonics.
More thoughts later. Gotta listen to Lenny Wilkins on SportsTalk…
ps. The last time Seattle had the #2 pick? Gary Payton. ‘Nuff said.
pps. If I may get all regional on you, it’s a great day for Northwest Basketball. Rookie of the Year Brandon Roy was onhand to accept Portland’s #1 pick. This means our two respectable, solidly mediocre teams might actually get good. Zach Randolph, LaMarcus, and Oden together? Woof!
UPDATE: It’s 12:53 a.m. and I am a little drunk, looking up what the world wide web has to say about all this. My favorite basketball blogger, Bethlehem Shoals, delivered this gem over on the genius/love that is Freedarko:
