Here's something to pass the time while we're waiting to find out about Atlanta's pick. Doug Haller has a fun game posted on his blog at AZCentral. He gives a quote from someone in a player's past, and you figure out who he's talking about. Here's the clue for the first one:
"Some guys are low maintenance. He is no maintenance.
"He was a very mature young man from early on. He comes from a very strong, stable family with high moral standards, so he never allowed himself to get caught up in anything that would be a distraction.
"When we brought in recruits, they would always want to go out and enjoy the night life. But he wouldn't do it. He'd go out to dinner with them, and once they started doing the partying, he'd find a book to read or go relax and hang out with a friend.
"He had everything in perspective. He was never concerned with playing time. His attitude was always 'No one owes me anything. I have to go out and earn it.' He never made excuses. He got the most out of his talent because he's smart. He understands and he's a fast learner. He'll be a contributor for any team."
I'm guessing he's talking about Steve Nash. Attended college, "no maintenance", likes to read, hard worker, plus if I remember correctly, Nash's parents moved from South Africa to Canada because they didn't want their kids growing up amidst Apartheid (e.g., high moral standards). What do ya'll think?
