Play What? Play This Playlist: An Open Letter to Greg Monroe, 7th NBA Draft Pick for Detroit Pistons and Former Hoya Baller

Dear Greg,

When we heard the news last night that you were chosen to join the Detroit Pistons in big-time Detroit Rock City, home of the Temptations and Smokey Robinson and a pretty good NBA team, we have to admit we were happy for you. Even though in the spring, your initial decision to go pro left us feeling Heartbroken and Jaded, our campus Hero leaving us in the lurch, destined for bigger and better things while your classmates and friends watch from far away-- well, Hey, that's No Way To Say Goodbye.

We get it: you're a Superstar now, and we hope your Dope Boy Magic skills will carry you far in Detroit as they carried you far at Georgetown. Best wishes in your future endeavors. We'll Miss You! (Especially Miley). Don't get too big for your britches, make good choices, and give us a call from time to time.

Oh, and we made you a mixtape. Welcome to Detroit City.

So this is the best thing ever. I'm glad Greg left, he would've turned into another Dajuan if he stayed another year

That's a creative post and a great playlist to send Monroe off to the NBA with. I would add Smokey Robinson and the Miracles' "What's So Good About Goodbye?" And anything by Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels (starting with Devil with the Blue Dress On, Good Golly Miss Molly and Sock it to Me Baby).
