Smiles, determination after NBA draft

UNC guard Wayne Ellington's reaction after to falling to No. 28 and the Minnesota Timberwolves in Thursday night's draft: "They'll be sorry,'' he told the Philadelphia Daily News, referring to the first 27 teams that didn't draft him.

Meanwhile, Duke wing Gerald Henderson, chosen No. 11, can't seem to get away from the Tar Heels. He now moving to Charlotte -- i.e., Tar Heel South.

New Indiana Pacer Tyler Hansbrough plans to keep proving people wrong, according to the Indianapolis Star. (Sound familiar?)

And point guard Ty Lawson, traded from the Timberwolves, told the Denver Post he's excited to play for the Nuggets -- and to learn from Chauncey Billups.

Why can't anybody at the Observer get the Bobcat's draft selection number correct-it was 12th not 11th. They selected 12th. It's not that hard people.
