Well, he won’t be going far from the draft in Brooklyn: RJ Barrett, after seeing roommate and teammate Zion Williamson go #1, is officially the third pick of the 2019 NBA Draft to the New York Knicks. The pick was expected, but like his best friend, the interview following the pick was emotional for both RJ and his dad. This is what these players have worked for their entire lives and the draft culminates that, so the emotion is understandable especially as the realization comes that this is real. New York is a tough place for a young player but if there’s somebody who can take it, it’s RJ. He is the star they badly need with a depleted roster after years of tanking. Congratulations and thank you to RJ from your Blue Devil family.
