Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (6/25/2010)

Imagine sitting down for 7 hours, only one of those hours aside as a lunch break, and hammering away at 200 difficult multiple choice problems. Yeah, I’m not really looking forward to 2 days of that in roughly a month from now, but at least I got what is necessary to pass, and I still have a month to study. Getting a lot of emails from teams overseas looking for talented basketball players at every position. It’s that time of the year. Last night was the NBA Draft. Who were your winners and losers?

hey darren, i saw your client cole brand ended up signing with the cards and has started rookie ball great congradulations! was wondering what kind of factors went into him choosing to go pro instead of opting to go to clemson, esp. as a 42nd rounder? also, why did he fall so far in the draft wasnt he projected, or led to believe he would go higher? thanks for the insight and congrads again!

darren btw if you think zaino swalley or millan can answer the question better like if they have worked with cole more throughout the process you can forward them the question, thanks!
