The NBA draft came and went yesterday. If you watched did you happen to see Commisioner David Stern take some jabs at ESPN's Dan Patrick. That was one of the better moments.

The Raps picked 1 and chose Italian centre Andrea Bargnani. This is huge for Toronto, which has 700,000 plus of Italians living within the city.

I like this pick. As most of us know, Italians are known for being creative, whether in art, the trades or food, (this is me stereotyping) I hope Andrea brings some creativeness to the ACC, we need it.

New GM, Colangelo is also of Italian background and he is creative, maybe the Leafs should hire an Italian GM, god knows they need some creativeness.

well the Toronto Raptors have the first pick in the NBA draft this Wednesday. I am pretty excited, as are many other Raps fans. I cannot get enough news on who we will pick or what we will do. But one thing that is ticking me off, is the talk of "soon to be superstar", Adam Morrison's and the fact that he had diabetes.

I read a few Canadian publications this morning mentioning his diabetes and that it may scare off some teams. Such bullshit!

This kid has been balling for probably 10 years with no problems and he has a deep understanding of his body and when he needs insulin or sugar. There were times when he was giving himself shots at timeouts in college. Sure if health is involved teams should look into it, but I am sure Adam's diabetes is a blip on his overall standings as a player, and for the media to state that it could scare off teams to me is not truthful and grasping at straws.

Basketball media is a bit bent these days, with sites like Hoopshype and RealGM, all over ever rumour and such, so for reporters to actually feel that Adam has a downside because of diabetes is scary to me.

I am not sure who the Raps will pick but if Adam is the guy, I will be happy.

For real though, I think charging them is a great idea. Why does she pick Namibia anyway?

Spears now eyeing a Namibian birth

WINDHOEK, Namibia — Following in the steps of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, Britney Spears is considering a Namibian birth for her next baby, a government official said Friday.
Leon Jooste, deputy environment and tourism minister, said officials have received an inquiry on behalf of the 24-year-old pop star, who has a nine-month-old son, Sean Preston, with husband Kevin Federline.
"She has shown interest to come over to Namibia," Jooste said by telephone from a conference in neighbouring South Africa. ``Nothing has been confirmed yet, but there is a definite possibility of that happening."
He declined to provide further details, saying: "She wants to come in very low profile and have some privacy. She might change her mind if we reveal too much now."
There was no immediate response from Spears's New York-based representative, Leslie Sloane Zelnik, to requests by The Associated Press seeking comment.
Spears, who recently announced she is expecting a second child, has taken a beating in the tabloids, which have questioned her parenting skills. She has been photographed driving with Sean Preston in her lap, and nearly dropped him when she tripped outside a New York City hotel.
Spears would probably appreciate some of the peace and privacy that Pitt and Jolie enjoyed when their daughter, Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt, was born last month in the sleepy southwest African country.
The Namibian government shielded the Hollywood couple from the paparazzi, insisting that visiting journalists obtain permission in writing to cover them.

I did an interview today with a friend who is also a minister about tomorrow which on the calender is "666", and in the interview he said, "there is nothing more deceitful than organized religion that is self serving".

this really stood out for me, after all the islamic extremism getting a national eye in Canada.
