The best part of the draft night is going through social media and seeing all of the moments and reactions that were captured. From the fans cheering, booing, or even crying. To the post draft interviews by the players. These are the moments that make the NBA Draft so unique. But, the draft is even better when your hometown team has the number one overall pick.
The Detroit Pistons selected Cade Cunningham with the number one overall pick in last nights draft. It was the first time the Pistons had the number one pick since 1970. The Pistons with that pick selected Bob Lainer.
The fans have been waiting for a player like Cunningham to be drafted by the Pistons. The Pistons haven’t had a player who can take over games in a long time. Cunningham is joining Stewart, Bey, Hayes, and Grant. The Pistons are a step forward in GM’s Troy Weaver plan to restore the franchise not only as a playoff team. But as future NBA title contenders in the future.
So to celebrate a once-in-a-lifetime moment together. Here are the best reactions and moments from draft night.
