In case you haven’t noticed, the NBA Draft took place last night. Coby White, Cameron Johnson, and Nassir Little all heard their name called in the first round. That’s always fun.
Know what else is fun? Watching reactions on social media. Here are some of our favorites.
Commissioner Adam Silver announcing the pick.
Bulls fans seems pretty stoked for Coby.
He will definitely need a different hat.
ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski with this little tidbit.
"Perfect fit," is how the Bulls front office describes Coby White. "Love him." https://t.co/5dzklS5Fjl— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) June 21, 2019
Carolina Basketball dropping some stats.
Garrison “Mr. Pickle” Brooks with some love.
Jimmy’s Seafood spitting facts.
Coby White will have a better NBA career than RJ Barrett.— Jimmy's Famous Seafood (@JimmysSeafood) June 20, 2019
First, more Coby.
The moment Cam got the news.
The celebratory scene at the Moon Township home of Cameron Johnson as he learns he was selected with the 11th pick of the #NBADraft2019, making the OLSH, Pitt and North Carolina product the first WPIAL player to be a first-round pick since 1997. pic.twitter.com/9Lwqdl0mHN— Kevin Gorman (@KGorman_Trib) June 21, 2019
Suns fans weren't as excited. It’s ok. They’ll come around.
Former WRAL reporter Marilyn Payne, giving us the important facts.
You like Cameron Johnson, who, at his own draft gathering in his home town, was leaving the room for some mac & cheese when his phone lit up notifying him that he was the 11th pick of the #NBADraft. Trust me, you like Cam.— Marilyn Payne (@marilyn_payne) June 21, 2019
There are no lies.
Roy Williams and the UNC program literally helped turn Cameron Johnson into a multi-millionaire.— John Bauman (@bauman_john) June 21, 2019
Something to think about.
Tate Frazier, co-host for college basketball podcast One Shining Moment was pretty thrilled.
CAM JOHNSON LOTTERY PICK— Tate (@tatefrazier) June 21, 2019
Wait. Does Roy develop players or hold them back?
But few expected him to rise to #11.
UNC's Cameron Johnson impressed teams with his shooting in workouts -- and now goes a stunning No. 11 overall. https://t.co/CdDOeDswq6— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) June 21, 2019
OAD’s are old news. Time to ride the grad transfer wave.
The Suns made the first truly shocking move of the night, by reaching significantly for the oldest player in the draft in Cameron Johnson. Johnson was not one of the 24 players invited to sit in the NBA Draft Green Room, and there was some talk that he may fall to the 2nd round.— Jonathan Givony (@DraftExpress) June 21, 2019
Pretty much what every Tar Heel fan is thinking.
Steal for Portland in Nassir Little. Not easy to find a 6-6 wing with a 225-pound frame and a 7-1 wingspan in the mid-20s. High character young man with a little more skill than he showed at North Carolina.— Mike Schmitz (@Mike_Schmitz) June 21, 2019
I rest my case.
Absolute steal for Portland picking Nassir Little at No. 25. Congrats to Nas...he will be successful and can use this as motivation, for sure.— Jones Angell (@JonesAngell) June 21, 2019
See. It was already known. Nas playing 4D Chess.
Nassir Little’s suit matches the Trail Blazers perfectly. pic.twitter.com/s330sk0u0N— Taylor Vippolis (@tvippolis) June 21, 2019
Short. Sweet. Simple. True.
Nassir Little is going to make one team very happy. And a lot of teams unhappy.— Turner Walston (@TurnerWalston) June 21, 2019
Tar Heel Illustrated reminding us that Roy doesn’t hate freshmen.
Coby White and Nassir Little are the fourth and fifth UNC freshmen selected in the first round of the NBA Draft (Marvin Williams in 2005, Brandan Wright in 2007, Tony Bradley in 2017, White and Little)— Tar Heel Illustrated (@HeelIllustrated) June 21, 2019
I honestly look forward to nature correcting itself in the near future.
Ty Jerome going ahead of Nassir Little is crazy.— Ross Martin (@RossMartin_IC) June 21, 2019
Hey Blazers fans, Nassir Little is a STEAL at this point! @HoopsHype spent time with Nassir during his pre-draft training and he opened up about his game and potential. He's studied Kawhi Leonard and Paul George since HS. Get to know your first-round pick: https://t.co/mU9ALRVxH1— Alex Kennedy (@AlexKennedyNBA) June 21, 2019
And just to finish this off on the right note, here is Nassir making sure a reporter got a chance to ask her question.
