What's funnier than an NBA draft? Bill Simmons' gloss
on one. To wit:
Transcript of Stu Scott's interview with Carmelo's Mom, Mary:
Stu: "I'm here with Mary ... gotta be an emotional moment ... what's running through your mind right now?"
Mom: (Sobs uncontrollably for 10 seconds.)
Stu (leaning closer): "Is this a dream for you?"
Mom: "Yes" (more sobbing).
Stu (practically sitting on her lap): "At one point did you know your son was not just a special person but a special basketball player?"
Mom: "I wanna say ..." (more crying)
Stu: "It's OK ... tears of joy, I'm sure. We'll come back and talk to you later."
Sportswriting doesn't get any better than this.
