RJ Barrett is #3 Draft Pick to New York

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.

Bleed blue.

Warriors, Cook Return Home, Hold Championship Parade

After getting their Championship Series dubs, the Dubs (see what I did there?) returned to Oakland for their Championship parade. Former Blue Devil Quinn Cook participated in the festivities after his first season with the Warriors. You can read my original post on Quinn’s journey to the finals here. It was a roller coaster ride, and he came out a champion because of hard work and incredible work ethic. Quinn Cook will always be one of the most beloved members of the Brotherhood.

(Sorry, this is a lot of twitter posts, but they’re all amazing!)
