Some people are wondering what I’m doing in New York. I’m here to cover the NBA draft for NBA africa. The draft is when NBA teams pick the best new players to join the league. These guys are the players who will become stars after tonight. Their lives are about to change forever. There are two Africans who are most likely going to be picked in the first round (@Sekou_doumbouya_ and @bolbol) and that’s who I’m Routing for! Sidenote: I’m a ballllllllerrrrrr 😁🏀💕💃🏽
