Dennis Smith Jr. will forever look at June 22, 2017 as one of the best days in his life. For that was the day when he officially became an NBA player when the Dallas Mavericks selected him ninth overall.

Okay, then.

If you’re a pretty good high school athlete, this is something to keep in mind. What you post on Twitter will stay with you, even nearly five years later.
