The NBA draft is a life-changing moment for players transitioning from the college game to tthe pro game.
Early on tonight we saw two big-time players break down and get emotional after getting picked.
Firsy, Zion Williamson teared up while talking about his mother after getting drafted #1 overall.
Moments later Zion’s former teammate at Duke RJ Barrett got choked up when his father got on stage and began praising him during an interview with Maria Taylor.
NBA fans everywhere appreciated the emotion from these young men.
