NBA drafts two Israeli players!

From The Jerusalem Post:

"Lior Eliyahu, was selected by the Orlando Magic with the 44th overall pick of the 2006 NBA Draft in New York City..."

And, "most analysts projected Yotam Halperin to be the first Israeli player drafted since the Los Angeles Clippers picked Doron Sheffer with the 36th selection of the 1996 Draft. Halperin surprisingly dropped to the Seattle Supersonics with the 53rd pick.

"In other basketball news, Pini Gershon, who led Maccabi Tel Aviv to three European titles, signed a contract to coach Greek team Olympiakos."

I'd just like to say that Israel rocks; don't take any crap from Hamas and their ilk - just steer clear of women, children, and the innocent.

You guys kick a**!
