Coby White's Still in Mild Shock over His Fellow Tar Heel's High Draft Selection
There were several lottery teams that decided to ignore conventional wisdom with their picks, either because of shrewd player evaluation or just plain incompetence.
That was completely spontaneous and unscripted, which is why it's so damn good.
White's experiencing a variety of emotions here, but his initial reaction is one of shock, as in why the hell did Phoenix take my teammate with the 11th pick?
The shock is then joined by genuine happiness and glee:
Of course, the question as to why the Suns would trade back from the sixth spot to take a dude they could've likely gotten much later in the first round still lingers.
Also, they kinda needed a point guard, but to each their own.
Perhaps that unforgiving desert heat is screwing with the old synapses.
It's not like Johnson can't ball, though.
And while we're on the subject, here's some Coby White.
Let's just hope the Bulls don't screw him up too badly.
