"Its almost time for the NBA Draft in New York City and I am going through a range of emotions. I am anxious. I am nervous. I am excited. But most importantly I am ready to join the NBA.
"Monday I was in Philly to work out for the 76ers at the Wachovia Center. Ive been nursing a sore ankle the past few days so the first thing I did when I got to the gym this morning was to ice it and then tape it up before I hit the court. I ran through some light workouts and took a tour of the arena with my mom and the coaches.
"Then I met with a psychologist who confirmed thankfully that I wasnt crazy. Just kidding. The questions were a little strange, but every player who works out for the Sixers goes through it, which eased my mind. When that was all over, I rushed to the airport to catch my flight to NYC and prepare for the big day."
