Deandre Ayton played a lot of Fortnite before NBA draft to calm his nerves

The SEC also tied its own mark with four lottery picks for the second time in four years for the league.

The Big 12 fell far short of matching its seven NCAA berths with only three first-round picks.

Becoming the first overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft is definitely the greatest accomplishment of Ayton's young career, but that won't stop people from taking shots at the talented center.

Webster and his boss Masai Ujiri are eager to make something happen, and wanted to at least start with a draft pick, but, as Webster repeated on Thursday, it takes two to tango.

After such an eventful night, how did the Phoenix Suns fare in this year's draft? The Dallas Mavericks looked all the way to Slovenia for the player they hope can be their next European superstar.

Dallas moved up two spots in the National Basketball Association draft Thursday night to get Slovenian guard Luka Doncic, who was selected by Atlanta at No. 3 while the Mavericks picked former Oklahoma scoring sensation Trae Young for the Hawks at No. 5 as part of the deal.

The Mavericks made the move for Doncic a year after drafting point guard Dennis Smith Jr. with the ninth overall pick, giving Dallas a chance to have one of the NBA's youngest backcourts depending on where Doncic lands in the rotation. The guard only arrived in NY on Wednesday after helping Spain's Real Madrid win its league championship after he won Euroleague MVP and Final Four MVP honors when they won that title this year.

The Suns, were BAD last season.

The star player will not just be missed by India but the opposing team as well, who will miss out on a chance to bowl to him. The troubled country has yet to play an global game at home and the possibility of doing so in the future is remote as well.

"We've been talking about it through high school, and now here we are", Ayton said. "Sometimes, even if you feel really good, they want you to feel even better before they put you on the floor". We will break them down here, starting with the big victor of the entire evening: The Dallas Mavericks, who landed the best player in the draft.

Rowley said Ayton has a presence in Phoenix, having gone to high school in the community and attending school in Tucson. I represent a whole nation (Bahamas) I just do that the best that I can and just help this community start over and be the best player I can possibly be. The top pick was Deandre Ayton, to the shock of nobody.

Ayton, who said he knew he was going to be the No. 1 pick after working out for the Suns on June 6, said he was still blown away when NBA Commissioner Adam Silver called his name.

Besides Ayton and Bagley, other big men to go early included Wendell Carter (Chicago Bulls), Jaren Jackson (Memphis Grizzlies) and Mohamed Bamba (Orlando Magic).

The Cleveland Cavaliers used the eighth pick to take Alabama guard Collin Sexton, while the champion Golden State Warriors chose Cincinnati guard Jacob Evans with the 29th pick. On draft night, it should be about what's next for them in the league. "You don't always see it in professional sports", Rowley said.

Phoenix has young talent, but they definitely need a dominant big who can change the game. "But they got Kevin Knox, and I'm willing to work and I'm willing to get better".

Michael Porter Jr. went to the Nuggets at No. 14 Thursday night, giving them a potential impact player.
