2006 NBA Draft and The Texas Longhorns - Aldridge, Tucker & Gibson

June 28, 2006
With hat in hand, LeMarcus Aldridge stepped up to the stage in New York as the second overall pick in the 2006 NBA Draft and the highest draft pick ever to come out of the University of Texas. NBA commissioner David Stern handed Aldridge his Chicago Bulls cap and with true Texas hospitality, Aldridge handed one right back. He slapped a Longhorns hat on the commissioner's head, flashed the hook'em horns and smiled for the cameras.
Life is good for the Longhorns.

This is a Horns-centric highlights clip featuring the top three picks (Andrea Bargnani, Aldridge & Adam Morrison) in the draft, PJ Tucker's 35th overall pick by the Toronto Raptors, Daniel Gibson's 42nd overall pick by the Cleveland Cavaliers and Commissioner Stern trading barbs from the podium with ESPN's Dan Patrick.
