Twitter reacts to Michael Porter Jr’s draft slide

Michael Porter Jr

Michael Porter Jr’s draft-day slide was one of the biggest stories of the evening.

Entering college, Porter was regarded as one of the top prospects in the country. He was viewed as a contender to be the No. 1 pick in the draft. But Porter hurt his back in his first game at Missouri and missed nearly the rest of the season.

Teams must have had serious concerns about his back injury, because Porter fell out of the lottery and was not taken until No. 14 overall by Denver. It probably didn’t help that he also cancelled a predraft workout.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions to Porter’s slide:

It’s hard to believe that a player who was in consideration for the No. 2 pick went all the way to No. 14, but that’s what happened. He’ll be out to prove people wrong and that he’s healthy.
