Scenes From the NBA Draft
Steve Martin noticed something familiar about Andrew Wiggins' attire and tweeted out the above photo ... Wiggins wasn't the only player who made a fashion statement ... Zach LaVine wasn't exactly thrilled when the T-Wolves snagged him with the 13th overall pick. I thought the same thing about Joel Embiid when the Sixers grabbed him at No. 3, but he was watching on satellite delay and didn't realize ... Bill Simmons made a good V Stiviano joke before the Clippers pick ... I enjoyed this roundup of Twitter reactions to the draft ... The Raptors selected Brazilian forward Bruno Caboclo with the 20th overall pick and nobody knew a thing about him ... And in the best part of the draft, the NBA selected Isaiah Austin and let the former Baylor forward walk across the stage and shake Adam Silver's hand. Austin was diagnosed with Marfan Syndrome a few days ago and will not be able to play in the NBA. This was a pretty spectacular moment and you have no soul if you didn't at least get a little misty.
Kobe Won't Like This
Kobe Bryant seemed excited about the Lakers' selection of Kentucky forward Julius Randle with the seventh overall pick. Not sure how Kobe will feel about Randle posting a Throwback Thursday photo of himself as a youngster wearing a Bryant jersey.
