It was all a dream: An NBA Draft Night recap

Share

In case you missed it or were living under a rock, last night was a big one for the next generation of hoopers.

The 2020 NBA Draft wasn’t quite the same as we’re used to seeing, with prospects, families and fans packed in to Madison Square Garden, but even over Zoom calls there was no doubting the excitement and emotion for the Association’s newest members.

Georgia guard Anthony Edwards went first to the Timberwolves, while LaMelo Ball was selected by Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Hornets at 3.

We kept a close eye on the five Draft prospects from the Finish Line Parks Department crew to see how their nights unfolded.

Obi Toppin

8th pick, New York Knicks

The Dayton Flyers star and New York native will play for his hometown team in 2020-21. You love to see it.

Devin Vassell

11th pick, San Antonio Spurs

Fresh outta Florida State, Devin knows what he needs to do on both ends of the floor. We might have made a local news outlet mad recently, but we can’t wait to watch Devin work.

Tyrese Haliburton

12th pick, Sacramento Kings

The Iowa State point guard had hands-down the flyest suit in the league on Draft Night. One might say it was fit for a king.

Josh Green

18th pick, Dallas Mavericks

The Aussie expat who played college ball at Arizona is heading to Texas, where they everything’s bigger, including the limelight.

Tyrese Maxey

21st pick, Philadelphia 76ers

From South Garland, Texas, to the City of Brotherly Love, we can’t wait to see Tyrese give his Maxey-mum effort. 

And for those with an eagle eye who spotted the sick custom boxes in the frame when these guys were on the Draft Night broadcast, here’s a better look. We packaged the custom 3D-printed boxes up with some kicks to say congratulations to our guys on the biggest night of their careers to date.
