Deacon Dump 6/30- Teague, Johnson adjust to first week in the NBA

Bradley's Buzz: Draft grades for the Hawks (and Thrashers) | Mark Bradley
"On the other hand, [Teague] was ranked in our top five for much of the year, and had his team not crashed in the tournament or had he gone back to school for another year, he would have been a top-10 pick. So the Hawks got great value here."

"They’ve already got a great floor general," Johnson said. "Hopefully I can work my way to where the coaches trust me to do something like that."

"I grew up getting toughed up, roughed up,'' Johnson said. "That's how we all were. We were all competitive. Playing basketball or fighting, we went hard at it.''

''It was heart-pounding, crazy,'' the two-season collegian said. ''Like I won the lottery. To run out there and see my name on the main thing, it was like a dream come true.'' Johnson will make Bulls dreams come true if he turns out to be one of the main things in a new generation of fleet-winged ''bigs'' who can defend, get the ball for Derrick Rose and race out to help close kick-sass fast breaks.

The PlayMakers: Wake Forest Demon Deacons...
Jim Grobe has become something of a miracle man in Winston Salem. Wake Forest had been a downtrodden program, rotting in the lower depths of the ACC and in 2006 it all changed. Wake Forest, lead by Grobe and quarterback Riley Skinner, somehow managed to reach eleven wins. Miraculously, they weren't a one hit wonder and managed to win nine games in 2007 and finished with eight in 2008. Those kind of numbers are absurd at a school like Wake, where the stadium holds less than 35,000 people and has under 5,000 under graduate students. Grobe and Skinner hope to continue their winning ways at BB&T field this season but they have plenty of talent to replace at some key positions.

He’s also looking forward to one of the perks of living life on a NBA salary. Teague said he’s looking foward to getting a car. "I’ve never really had my own car," he said. "It was like a 1988 Toyota Camry. The rest of my friends had cars in the 2000s. I went to Wake Forest and there I am riding around in my ‘88 Camry that’s not looking to good."
