With the 12th pick in the 2021 NBA Draft, the San Antonio Spurs shocked the world and angered their fans with Josh Primo. The 18-year-old expected himself to go in the early second round and was equally as surprised as the rest of us. 

The internet quickly filled up with reactionary takes surrounding the picks, most of which are negative and probably accurate. But perhaps the Spurs found a diamond in the rough. Consider this webpage a safe space for Joshua Primo fans. There will be no more negativity -- just hope toward the future. With some crossed fingers, he may be the pick that shocked the world but ultimately worked out. 

With the upcoming NBA Summer League, Spurs fans will get to see the talent Primo will be bringing to the Spurs and the NBA. Hopefully, he immediately makes an impact and proves the thousands of doubters wrong. 

Primo was born on December 24th, 2002. That means he was nearly born in 2003. 2003! And he was a lottery pick. Clearly, the San Antonio organization sees Primo as a young buck with some massive upside. The upside is the main draw and should be the focal point of any commentary surrounding him.
