I have written a lot of things since I started on HOOP, but this is definitely the bit of news that I am happiest to write about. D.J. Kennedy was a senior at St. John’s last year which was my freshmen year. During that senior campaign he led the Red Storm back to the NCAA tournament for the first time in a long time. Coming into St. John’s D.J. Kennedy was the player I had heard all about. In his junior year he led the team in points, rebounds, assist, steals, and quite a few other things. Finally, Kennedy has been recognized for his versatility and has been signed by the Cleveland Cavaliers.


Only one other St. John’s alum is currently in the NBA, back in his Johnny days he went by the name of Ron Artest. ¬†While Moe Harkless, who played for St. John’s this past season and was named Big East Rookie of the year, is not i the NBA yet, he soon will be. He will be heading to the NBA draft and will be on a roster for sure next season. The thing that makes D.J. special is the fact he spent four years playing for the Storm.


So with that we wish D.J. Kennedy the best of luck, he certainly deserves his chance with the Cavs. For additional reading on D.J. and his time in Queens, you can read this article I wrote long before this season even started.
