I put together a package for ESPNU while I was in Chicago for the NBA Pre-draft Combine. Jonny Flynn's stock was skyrocketing and I'd just witnessed Paul Harris dominate a few projected first round picks in three-on-three games, so basing a story around both players possibly being NBA draft picks seemed like a logical idea.
It turns out the story backfired on me when Harris wasn't selected (with matching Happy Gilmore sound bite and swear word removed because this is a family-friendly blog).
But...I did have the intuition to ask a couple of questions about the likelihood of the high school and college teammates pairing up in the NBA, which is still feasible now that Harris is on Minnesota's summer league team.
If you'd like to hear what they had to say—Jonny was a "Negative Nancy" and thought it was unrealistic but Paul had a more Kevin Garnett approach—the video is posted below.
