Though the number 1 draft pick went to the Cleveland Cavaliers, forcing the Bucks to settle for a number 2 pick, Edens certainly came out on top. During and after the broadcast, her Twitter follower count leapt from 249 to over 30,000.
Edens,18, who graduates from high school next month, admitted that she was nervous about representing the Bucks at the draft lottery. "I was really nervous, but really happy to get the second pick," she told the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. "I was extremely nervous, but it was really fun."
As for the draft lottery itself, the Bucks had been hoping to snap up the top draft pick, having come in last place in the league last season. The Cavaliers have received the number 1 draft pick for three years running.
