Some analysts projected him going No. 11

The Portland Trail Blazers heard their number called with the 25th overall pick in last night's NBA Draft. There was only one name to choose in their eyes.

Nassir Little, the small forward from North Carolina, was selected by Portland in the first round. Some draft experts had the 6-foot-7 wing going as high as No. 11.

Little never came to Portland for a workout or interview. Considering Neil Olshey is a calculated General Manager, this was a rare gut check move by the GM Bro. Now we'll have to see if Little can prove the other 24 teams that passed on him were wrong, and we were right.
