Chet Holmgren was drafted in the first round by the Oklahoma City Thunder with their second overall pick (Paolo Banchero was number one). The man is a giant, standing 7 feet tall with a mind-blowing 7-foot-5.25 wingspan, with a fluid jump shot.


Holmgren is a unique center prospect who somewhat reminds us of a smaller Shawn Bradley; let’s hope his NBA career trends much better, however.
