Candace Parker, last year's WNBA double-threat MVP and Rookie of the Year, announced today that she and new husband Shelden Williams of the Sacramento Kings are expecting their first child this Spring. To the relief of Los Angeles Sparks fans, Parker is working out in anticipation of playing in the 2009 WNBA season.

The senior duo of J.J. Redick and Shelden Williams represented Duke in big way on Wednesday night at the 2006 NBA Draft. Redick, the 2006 National Player of the Year, went 11th overall. Williams, the two time ACC Defensive Player of the Year, was selected fifth.
Once each year, college basketball fans and NBA fans come together. The NBA Draft tonight at Madison Square Garden will be a bizarre one without high school players, given David Stern's new age-limit rule. So it's all college kids and foreigners on tap tonight. The Court Jester, who should be running half of these clubs, matches the needs, availability and foolery to predict tonight's first round.
