Did I see two former Kansas University basketball players play in Wednesday's NBA playoff game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Washington Wizards?
Yes, former KU All-American Drew Gooden started as a forward for Cleveland and played 27 minutes. He scored 6 points. For Washington, reserve guard Billy Thomas played three minutes and committed one foul. Thomas made 269 three-point field goals as a KU reserve guard from 1995 to 1998, and he finally made an NBA roster with the New Jersey Nets in January 2005.
