Employee posts draft 'plan' on Facebook
WASHINGTON -- There it was on Facebook for all to see: the Washington Wizards telling the world they will draft John Wall with the No. 1 pick.
Oops. It was just a Wizards employee getting carried away.
Myron Goodman made the posting Friday on a Facebook page for University of Kentucky alumni. It read: "I am a sales rep for the Washington Wizards. John Wall will be our choice as the [No. 1] overall pick in the June draft. If you want a great deal on tickets ... email me."
The posting was soon taken down. Wizards spokesman Scott Hall says it was "simply the case of an overzealous member of our sales staff acting on his own."
The Wizards won the draft lottery this week. Wall, Kentucky's star guard, is expected to be the top choice.
