    As I was choosing out which whiskey to buy (Jim Beam) at the local liquor shop around UTexas campus I spot Myck Kabongo (pronounced Mike, not Mick - I made sure to pronounce it correctly) an aisle across from me near the register.

    "Myck, what's going on?"
    -"Not much," he says.
    "It was a shame at the game tonight."
    -"Yeah, sure was. I thought we had them."
    "I'm excited to see you back on the court though."

    He acknowledges my statement and proceeds to talk to the cashier who seems to apparently be a "homie" since they are talking about plans about each other's night. I haven't checked out yet, but we both are relatively near the exit and before he leaves I ask,

    "Hey Myck, would it be cool if I got a photo with you?"
    "Yeah, for sure."
    "I don't know how often you get this, but I just know you're going to the league," I say.

    He recognizes the kind remark, and humbly just smiles and chuckles. As I go to pull out my cell phone I tell him,

    "Actually I'm a Jazz fan and I think you could really fit there."
    "Yeah, they're doing pretty good."
    "Yeah, they are young and have a lot of talent," I say.

    We take the photo and we say our byes.

    -----------

    Myck Kabongo was suspended originally for the season and then it was reduced to 23 games. He is set to miss 7 more games to fulfill his suspension. He is #45 on draftexpress and projected at 27 on draftnet. In the final stretch of the season he could really boost his draft stock, leaving him a viable option as a PG of the future for us.

    Easily.

    Btw, I've never been very high on Kabongo when he was listed absurdly high, but he is currently mocked way too low, imo.

    I read in a book that Canadians are people (to my surprise), but they are not very smart (which I suspected).

    He just turned 21 last Sunday. He got to play/train on the Canadian Natl Team and says Nash was a mentor for him, as is Cory Joseph (UT Alum, Spurs PG).
