ellingtonandhottieThis post has nothing to do with the 76ers selection of Jrue Holiday at #17 last night. We’ll get that post up later.

We just wanted to give a big congratulations to all the kids with ties to Philly that were drafted last night in NYC. We especially want to say congrats to former Episcopal Academy standout Wayne Ellington. Ellington had to wait a while to hear his name called, but finally Minnesota sent his name into David Stern at #28 and soon he’ll been living the life of a baller.

Plus he had this great looking number on his arm last night when he was spotted out at dinner in the Northern Liberties section of the city.

Our congrats also go out to…

Tyreke Evans (American Christian Academy / Memphis) who was selected at #4 by the Kings.

Gerald Henderson (Episcopal Academy / Duke) who was selected at #12 by our man Larry Brown and Charlotte.

Dante Cunningham (‘Nova) who was selected at #33 by the Portland Trailblazers.

Ahmad Nivins (St. Joe’s) who was selected at #56 by the Dallas Mavericks.
