Coby White was picked seventh overall in the 2019 NBA Draft by the Chicago Bulls.

During his post-draft press conference at the podium, his reaction to UNC (University of North Carolina) teammate Cameron Johnson getting drafted could be one of the best moments of this Draft.

"I'm getting chills up here," White said.

While White,19, is a freshmen out of UNC, Johnson was forced to redshirt his freshmen year at Pittsburgh.

Johnson, 23, took advantage of the graduate transfer rule, but did so only after obtaining a degree in communications in three years at Pittsburgh. Johnson was widely projected to be taken outside of the lottery even though he is one of the best shooters in the draft. He shot 46% from beyond the 3-point line in his final season at UNC.
