When You Have No Opinion About Your Team’s Draft Selection, Just Go Crazy With Excitement Anyway
As a fan, you want to be excited about your favorite team, but sometimes there’s just not all that much to get excited about – like late in the NBA Draft. By the last few picks, the big excitement of the night is generally long over. That was true last night, too – especially for a team like the Nets, that had only the 57th pick to work with (though they also traded for the rights to Tyshawn Taylor, a local product out of Kansas).
There were many Nets fans in attendance last night, though – after all, the draft was held in the team’s now-former home of Newark. And those fans wanted something to go crazy over. And if the team’s selection of little-known Turkish forward Ilkan Karaman wasn’t doing the trick on its own, then by God, they would make that excitement themselves:
That’s how to do it – always positive. We guess that’s the good thing about such a low pick – it’s low-risk, so if you get nothing out of the guy, it’s not like anyone expected you to get much out of him anyway. And if you don’t know who he is, there’s nothing to be mad about, so you do a little dance for the camera and move right back to pining for Dwight Howard. And let’s face it, being a Nets fan in recent years has meant taking every chance to celebrate you can possibly get.
