Video: Kelly Olynyk and Phil Pressey react to the NBA Draft Lottery
Emily Austen interviewed Kelly Olynyk and Phil Pressey after it was announced that the Boston Celtics would receive the #6 pick in this year's NBA Draft, while Cleveland will receive the #1 pick for the 3rd time in 4 years. They tried not to look too bummed for the cameras.
Olynyk mentioned that Larry Bird was drafted with the #6 pick, and is hoping that this year's draft pick brings the Celtics more wins. Pressey discussed his experience in not being drafted, but still getting an opportunity to play in the NBA.
Anyways, I think Danny Ainge best summarized how we all feel right now:
Ainge: "We were all disappointed." Can you feel the excitement?!

Disappointing for sure, but don't lose all hope, as Danny looks to be willing to explore all types of possibilities to better the Celtics next season:
Danny Ainge: "I do think that moving up is a possibility. Moving down is also a possibility, or moving out, or using all of our picks."
