Special Ben Ball Open Thread: 2008 NBA Draft Party

Well today is going to be a big day for UCLA basketball program. Sure Kevin Love, Luc Richard M’Bah A Moute, and Russell Westbrook will not be wearing UCLA uniforms next season. But you can bet in coming years they are going to be representing our school the same way we have had superstars such as Baron Davis, Reggie Miller, Jordan Farmar, et al. representing their alma mater on and off the court. So here is just a little something wishing all of our Ben Ball warriors best of luck on their big night.

Here is to KL's next team ENJOYING what we experienced at Pauley:

If you are watching the NBA draft tonight and getting nostalgic about last three seasons, this is the place to be.

If you are following it on TV, the draft coverage begins on WWL at 4 pm PST. You should be able to ttrack the festivities online via this link.

We have followed every move of these three Ben Ball warriors since they arrived in Westwood. Here is to them having a great night and making all of us proud one more time representing those four magical letters stitched in blue and gold.

Kevin, Luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuc, and Russell - good luck.

Fire away.
