I Like The Nightlife Baby

It turns out Chris Duhon may have found a young running mate to hit up New York City's partypads with.

Word around the campfire, Jordan Hill was twisted like Danny DeVito at the NBA draft afterparty, which featured appearances from a buffet-line of hoop groupies and D.J. Clue.

Hill was drinking in the moment, both figuratively and literally, as a source revealed today. Hill's theatrics included dancing on tables and adding some firepower in the posh confines before some elite company which of course included Golden Boy Blake Griffin.

The source said that Stephen Curry was friendly and outgoing but kept manners very professional. The slim sniper chose not to drink and was hanging out exclusively with his bottom down bird.

Not to be a dick, but I'm sure Curry will have some Golden State groupies to supplant her should the cookie crumble.

I'm an asshole, I know.

The source also said that Ricky Rubio was the lone member of the newly-minted millionaires who didn't bring much to the table.

Rubio was anti-social at the event, opting not to get acclimated to his new teammates or the 2009 rookie environment.

Symbolic of the Dan Dickau on yayo-looking point guard's background, no?

Many describe Rubio as a grounded, sheltered boy, despite the fact that he's been shredding up the Spanish professional ranks since the growth of his first pubic hair. His mother has been outspoken about her son not wanting to play in the below freezing state of Minnesota.

The always-chill Hasheem Thabeet, whose summer away message noted how "swaggerlicious" he was, lived up to his reputation. The cool customer interacted with folks and enjoyed the special evening.

Thabeet has improved by miles and kilometers since arriving at UConn in the fall of 2006. Thabeet was an offensively mute work-in-progress. He evolved into a walking double-double his junior year (13.2 PPG, 10.8 RPG, 4.2 BPG).

Memphis' new 7-foot-3 beanstalk was an instant lynchpin in the Hartford, Conn. club life. He was a fan favorite at UConn and almost got as much off the court numbers as Gavin Edwards or Slicin' Dyson.

UConn guard Craig Austrie's girlfriend, she of the lava-hot, model frame, is a DIME to be reckoned with.

Anyway, the knock on Hill--who averaged 18 points and 10 boards at Arizona--is that he has a penchant for the nightlife. With a boatload of bread and a wild city known to pop off, the 6-foot-10 forward is better off living in Long Island or Westchester County. Not that it matters.

He'll get his NYC fix...

How can you expect someone of that age not to?

Clyde Frazier, he of the ill rhymes and elevated diction, wouldn't saunter into clubs until 3AM. He made his presence known. It's still rumored that Frank Lucas took his girl.

Clyde sported lavish, unmatched outfits and was a regular at some of the city's hotspots.

It didn't seem to affect the way he performed at the Garden.
