And the top pick

out of Oklahoma University coming in at 6’7 238 out pounds is…Taylor Griffin. Taylor Griffin you might ask? The brother of Blake Griffin was the top pick today in the Harlem Globetrotters third annual player draft. Until today I had no idea this even existed, but I guess the old saying you learn something new everyday continues to ring true. At least Taylor can always tell Blake that he was technically drafted first because Blake won’t be drafted #1 until this Thursday in the 2009 NBA Draft.

The Globetrotters selected 2009 College Slam Dunk Champion Tony Danridge number two out of New Mexico and the Slam Dunk runner-up Charlie Coley of Charlotte with the third pick. The other two picks consisted of 2009 Patriot League POY Derrick Mercer of American and Tim Howard who is a former high school basketball standout and also a goalkeeper of both the U.S. World Cup soccer team and Everton of England’s Premier League. All the picks will have an opportunity to try out and play for the Globetrotters in their 84th season.
