‘I Could Cry Man!’: Lamar Stevens, Others React to Penn State’s NBA Draft Night

It was a good night to be a Penn State basketball fan.

For the first time in program history, two players were selected in the NBA Draft.

Jalen Pickett went to the Denver Nuggets in the second round at pick No. 32 overall, and Seth Lundy went 14 picks later.

It’s a fitting end to what was a brief but successful period in Penn State basketball history, a.k.a the Micah Shrewsberry-era. Pickett and Lundy were the two best players of that era, helping Penn State to its first NCAA Tournament win since 2001 this March.

Here’s what the people of Twitter had to say about the two former Penn State stars getting drafted.
