If you know his life story you have to love the guy but his appreciation for his life in the NBA is incredible.

Wow, there are only about 5 players from that entire draft. McCollum at 10 was a steal, Giannis of course, but other than Burke, Porter and Gobert, not much else.
Oladipo at #2 too! He was a late bloomer but he's a two-time All-star and an All-NBA guard.

Edit: Steven Adams is great too.

Bennett was one of the biggest busts ever, Oladipo is starting to put a career together but when you see guys like Cody Zeller at 4?!?

Sure, this is more like a recruiting video where nobody misses, but we should be looking for kids like this.
I know a few once-in-a-generation 6'11 athletes with point guard skills, growth potential, unrivaled work ethic, and hands that could palm one of those weird spinning globes in middle school. I'll call them up.
