And with the first pick…
Every hooper dreams of the day they will hear their name after those words by the NBA commissioner. On Wednesday, April 4th of 2018, at Madison Square Garden, an overweight and unknown guy by the name of Artreyo Boyd aka Dimez heard those words and got to walk up to the podium to shake Adam Silver’s hand the way Markelle Fultz, Ben Simmons, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins did. I forgot to mention he first got a hug from #WCW favorite Rachel “2K” DeMita before shaking Silver’s hand. I also forgot to mention that I knew Dimez was going to be the 1st pick because Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted it before the draft. Seriously, a “WOJ BOMB” about the NBA2K Draft!
