When the Milwaukee Bucks picked Joe Alexander #8 in the recent NBA draft
Michigan fans must have been pleasantly surprised. I know I was. Brian wrote a post about this before, but the fact that Joe Alexander was drafted so
high can partly be attributed to our John Beilein. Sure, Alexander put the work
in, but Beilein molded him into the star he became. Naturally no one in the MSM
during draft day said boo about Beilein when Alexander was picked, rather
touting ass-hat Bob Huggins as the mentor. But what it comes down to is
Beilein's knack for pulling diamonds from the rough. He takes unheralded and hard
working kids and molds them for his system...the end result is always success.
His track record proves as much. I think Michigan Basketball will have a
resurgence, seeing Alexander drafted that high almost guarantees it.
