The 2019 NBA Draft at the Barclays Center on Thursday night is all about young men stepping into a spotlight and making a name for themselves. It turns out, even younger kids are looking to take advantage of the air time too.

During NBA TV’s pre-draft interview with commissioner Adam Silver, a young Brooklyn Nets fan couldn’t help but jump up and down in his moment to shine and grabbed some tv time and even caught Silver’s eye.

Silver made the moment even better by looking back and giving the young fan a little recognition, then quickly turning back to the topic being discussed.
