ICYMI - Drew Gordon - Undrafted

In case anyone cares about the NBA draft this year:

As the NBA draft began Thursday night, Archbishop Mitty product Drew Gordon warned that his emotions would be flowing by the end of the night.

"Regardless of what happens, you'll see me crying," Gordon said.

They would not be tears of happiness. Gordon, a collegiate standout at New Mexico, surprisingly was not among the 60 players selected. But within minutes of the draft's end, his agent Calvin Andrews already had fielded calls from the Sacramento Kings and Dallas Mavericks about Gordon playing on their summer league teams.

"It's heartbreaking," Gordon said from Double D's Sports Grille in Los Gatos, where about 70 friends and family members had gathered for what had intended to be a celebration. "But when people who love you are there to support you, it's also heartwarming."

Gordon's eyes were red after a long walk to "get everything out." But he sounded as if he already was prepared for the challenge of taking the harder path to the NBA as an undrafted free agent.

I really don't care to add any comment except to wish him good luck.

GO BRUINS.
