"That was the main focus, just being drafted".
On Thursday night at the 2019 National Basketball Association draft, the Nuggets traded into the second round to take Bol Bol, a 19-year-old center who went to the University of OR, with the 44th overall pick. At age seven, Bol Bol moved to Olathe Kansas where he began his high school career.
Bol, who had been projected by many as a top-five pick at the start of last season, was limited to just nine games for OR due to a stress fracture in his left foot, but averaged 21 points, 9.6 rebounds and 2.7 blocks when he did take to the court.
The reaction prompted Bol to say: "It feels pretty good, I didn't know I had that many fans until right now". "I can just do a lot of things that people my size can't do".
Bol Bol stands 7-foot-2 with a 7-7 wingspan.
"He's long. He can make shots". "I can dribble pretty well, can shoot from anywhere pretty well, and my passing is pretty good".
The Nuggets are already one of the league's rising teams, thanks in part to a young nucleus built around All-Star center Nikola Jokic and a back-court of Jamal Murray and Gary Harris. That is why Bol started to watch film of Jokic last season. He also added 4 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game.
Denver's selection comes a year after it took another rehab project - Michael Porter Jr. out of Missouri, the No. 14 selection last June who sat out the 2018-19 season.
The Nuggets are coming off a 54-28 season in which they earned the No. 2 seed in the West.
"Bol Bol's outfit looks like something a villain would wear in the old campy Adam West Batman series", one person wrote. "I think that will help me because of the great players around me and the great organization".
"Playing for my dream school under my favorite Coach Altman has been the Best part of my life and sadly it has come to end sooner than I would Like but thank you for all those who rocking with me & all OR fans", he wrote in an Instagram post at the beginning of the year.
