They did what little they could in the draft. A draft that included Bennedict Mathurin, who took a sly dig at LeGM, questioning his skills and his greatness.

The 2022 NBA Draft is done and dusted with and had some really exciting prospects. One such prospect is Benedict Mathurin who was drafted by the Indiana Pacers.
The 6’6 guard from Arizona is brimming with confidence. However, his recent statement may have him looking a bit too overconfident.
Mathurin has already made a bold claim, stating that no one is better than him, including LeBron James whose greatness he wishes to see for himself.

It certainly is an interesting statement from the youngster, who needs to be wary. The King does not take such disrespect lightly, especially when his legacy is doubted.
