Tennessee’s Jordan Bone torched the Cats on the court last season, but even the most diehard Kentucky fan will be moved by the video I’m about to share.

Bone, who gave up his final year of eligibility to remain in the draft, was selected 57th by the Detroit Pistons last night, but for a while there, it looked like he might not got picked, to the point that someone at his draft party started to give a concession speech on his behalf. The crowd’s reaction when they saw Bone’s name pop up on the giant screen behind him is incredible:

What a moment. Bone may have worn that puke inside of a pumpkin orange, but he’s got my support.

    An absolute steal at #57. He has a chance to be a really good one.

      Agree; he’s better than Romeo. I think Miami taking Herro really threw the Celtics off.

      Herro to Miami was a gut punch to this Celtics fan.

    I hate the NBA thought process. I may be wrong, but how do you pass on a kid that played as well as he did?

      6’3″ and average shooter. Good college player, not an NBA player

    Of course, he’s out for the year after he was mauled by his posse! 🙂

    Nice reaction, sad people can’t enjoy things without grabbing their phones though.

    If Colin Sexton can play in nba then j bone can too. It’s funny how they write ppl off as a bad nba player with out actually getting a try

    I hated what he did to UK, but I honestly will root for him now bc he can hoop better than a lot of the ppl picked ahead of him.

    I’m just happy we don’t have to play against him next year and wish him the best of luck.
