The Chicago Bulls held the No. 49 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft and they chose to select Erik Murphy, a power forward from Florida.
With social media interaction becoming increasingly integrated in professional sports, we scanned Twitter to see just what Bulls fans were saying about the pick.
What did the Bulls fans think of their team’s selection? Here is what they had to say:
The Bulls take Erik Murphy in the second round. A 6'8 forward who can shoot the three. Somewhere Joakim Noah smiles.

Erik Murphy has the same name as a character on ENTOURAGE. Teammates will love him.

Erik Murphy drafted by the Bulls. Two #Gators on roster = NBA Championship coming soon to Chicago. (Hey, it's worked for the Heat 3x!)

Erik Murphy is not even going to play… No defense.. but we will need his perimeter shooting…

Billy Donovan on Murphy: "I’m really proud of Erik. He has worked hard to reach this point and has a great opportunity in front of him.”
