I got to watch Denzel Valentine play basketball for 7 years. 3 at Sexton and 4 at MSU. He is by all accounts a genuine human being and GREAT basketball player. His reaction last night after being selected by the Chicago Bulls at pick 14 was awesome. At least NBA Commissioner Adam Silver got his name right and didn't call him Denzel Washington.


Denzel was a legendary Spartan who was a joy to watch play. (Other than the last game) Best of luck in your NBA career, Zelly.

Now, who will be the first NBA announcer to call him Denzel Washington?
