The Memphis Grizzlies held the No. 41 overall pick in the 2013 NBA Draft and they chose to select Jamaal Franklin, a forward from San Diego State.
With social media interaction becoming increasingly integrated in professional sports, we scanned Twitter to see just what Grizzlie fans were saying about the pick.
What did the Grizzlie fans think of their team’s selection? Here is what they had to say:
Jamaal Franklin going this low was a huge surprise. There was talk that he could be a top 20 pick earlier in this process. Huge slip.

Basically Jamaal Franklin is a shooting guard version of Kawai Leonard. Great pick

Jamaal Franklin is going to be a great addition to the #Grizzlies. Can't wait for him to develop…
