This year's 2018 draft class is considered to be almost one of the best ever in history, surpassing 2003 draft including LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Carmelo Anthony. Many rookies getting comparisons to NBA superstars, DeAndre Ayton to David Robinson, Trae Young to Stephen Curry and Michael Porter Jr. to Kevin Durant.
The outstanding potential in this year's draft, ready to take over the league. A tweet from Miles Bridges shows the 2018-19 draft class suited up in their new uniforms, getting fans excited for this next season.
However, someone is missing from the draft class. Stated in Bridges tweet, he says “delayed flights are the worst”. Unfortunately, Bridges missed an iconic group photo of his draft class by a delayed plane flight. He seems quite disappointed and I don’t blame him. It would suck not seeing yourself his draft class photo, many young basketball players dream of.
Also missing from this photo, Ben Simmons is somewhere out there just as devastated. He has the famous Kendall Jenner to make him not feel lonely. Let’s not hope his career diminishes from dating a related Kardashian.
The 20-year-old was drafted by the Charlotte Hornets with their 12th overall pick. Bridges averaged 17.1 points and 7.0 rebounds this season for Michigan State. Although he isn’t on this years draft class photo, he will definitely still make a great name for himself.
