Cleveland Likes Boobie


Also considered: Cavs happy with boobie decision. "Drafting players in every professional sport is an inexact science. Witness the 2006 NBA draft for the Cavaliers. They took Shannon Brown from Michigan State with the 25th overall pick in the first round and Daniel "Boobie" Gibson from Texas in the second round with the 42 overall pick. Brown, 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, was billed as a burly high-flyer with an NBA-ready body who eventually would take over at the shooting guard. Gibson, 6-2 and 190 pounds, would be brought along slowly. Someday, maybe, he’d become a serviceable back-up point guard with an above-average shooting eye. That was the plan then. Fast-forward to Thursday night, and it was Gibson grabbing the spotlight at the Q. Brown, meanwhile, inactive and in street clothes, grabbed a seat at the far end of the Charlotte bench."
