Donte' Greene was drafted 28th tonight by the Memphis Grizzlies (seriously people, when the franchise moves, change the freaking name) joining former Syracuse standout Hakim Warrick on the roster of one of the worst teams in the NBA. Two skinny guys from Syracuse who are physically are similiar, but have had completely different college careers and have totally different games.
Obviously Greene went a lot later than he expected, but frankly, with such an inconsistent freshman season, there were no guarantees. Should Greene have stayed? Only time will tell - but at the very least Donte will have a guaranteed contract and an opportunity waiting for him - and honestly, that's all a basketball player can really hope for. The bottom line is there aren't many jobs available in the NBA and his future is in his hands. Good luck Donte, and make sure you get some Memphis Barbecue, they do it right down there.
