Twitter reacts to Michael Porter Jr's draft slide

Denver Nuggets Indiana Pacers Kenneth Faried NBA

Michael Porter Jr. shakes hands with NBA Commissioner Adam Silver after being selected number fourteen overall by the Denver Nuggets during the 2018 NBA Draft on June 21, 2018 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. The former Missouri freshman suffered hip spasms last week, but Porter said the injury talk was exaggerated and he's fine now.

Michael Porter Jr.is going to the Denver Nuggets, but he might not suit up in the Mile High City next season.

Clearly the injury concerns - particularly the back, of course - scared off several teams. If he were to have gone into the National Basketball Association last season, there is a great chance he would have the second or even the first overall pick given his sky high ceiling.

Paul McCartney Gives James Corden a Tour of Liverpool on 'Carpool Karaoke'
McCartney shared that the two went into the next room to play the song for McCartney's father. Corden replied, "That's the most handsome story I've ever heard".

Clippers (Nos. 12 and 13) and Nuggets (14) are preparing for possibility that Porter Jr., could drop to them.
And if Porter's health is *that* concerning, it's easy to understand how he fell to No. 14.

Prior to that, Wojnarowksi notes that the recently released medical examination results of Porter have given teams reason to worry about using a draft pick on the versatile forward. The NBA is a star-driven league, and Porter absolutely has star upside, frequently getting comps to Kevin Durant (no one is saying that he'll be anywhere near as good as Durant, of course, but just that there are similarities in the body and skillset).
