Orlando gets an offensive bulldog in Paolo Banchero to kick off the 2022 NBA Draft

New York- The 2022 NBA Draft kicked off the night drafting an offensive weapon for their organization.

With the NBA Finals finale creating a surging buzz around fans, as Golden State return to their throne, things got pretty interesting these last few days on social media. We had active and former players taking shots at each other, potential trade rumors, and everyone and their mother becoming NBA experts with the upcoming draft. All of the noise was silenced as Orlando had the chance to send a message to the rest of the league with the first overall pick of the night, which was Paola Banchero from Duke. That was a huge shock to certain fans, but the Magic like what they saw, because he can stretch the floor offensively and can defend pretty well on the other side of the ball
