  1. It is straight up unacceptable that Woj spoiled the pick on TV. Just like how this comment isn’t about the player, neither should the first pick be about a reporter who spoils shit for his living.

  2. ABC: please congratulate Paolo on being drafted

    Coach K: lemme just drop his scouting report instead

  3. fuck ESPN and Woj for spoiling that surprise. Would’ve been an absolutely awesome draft moment.

    Such a stupid bullshit thing to do to have a reporter soil the picks a minute before the pick. It’s fine if he wants to do that on twitter, but doing it on the broadcast is straight bullshit

  4. Paolo was always my favourite pick for Orlando but I never expected them to actually make the pick.

    I believe this was the best pick out of the three specifically for Orlando and they’ve got a lot to look forward to!

  5. Wow. I was really hoping he would slide down. I really like this kid. I believe the mental side of the game is looked over a lot. I believe he’s going to have a really good future in the league.

  6. We talk about Chet’s potential but Banchero is probably the closest to being able to carry a team offensively, probably a good take from the Magic
