With the third pick in the 2018 NBA Draft, acquired via trade, the Dallas Mavericks selected Luka Doncic. I know you already knew that, I just wanted to type it to remind us all that it really happened.
There were so many celebratory tweets we had trouble limiting it so there are a whole bunch here. From sarcastic Woj dropping the picks to Mavs fans reaction, the tweets were off the chain. Please enjoy our favorites below.
Best tweet of the night please do not @ us.
Shams might have led Woj into the sarcastic pick predicting by tweeting out the first two picks.

Poor Greg. Remember to check on your friends who are Kings fans. Life is tough sometimes.
Luka is going to torment the Rockets for years to come. We hope they’re ready for it.
Looking forward to rooting against Luka Doncic for years.— The Dream Shake (@DreamShakeSBN) June 21, 2018
Rudy Gobert knows what’s up.

Thank you Hawks!
Thank you & you’re welcome.— Atlanta Hawks (@ATLHawks) June 22, 2018
Atlanta might not feel as good about this trade when Luka Doncic is running rampant for the next many many years.

We agree with him on this.
Giving Rick Carlisle Luka Doncic is one of those “You will rue the day” moments.— Hardwood Paroxysm (@HPbasketball) June 21, 2018
Luka has a very good dog. This is an important update!

Oh hey there Tom.
A budding friendship emerges!
I’m buying 30 of these.
This is a darn good tweet.
NBA Jam was awesome.

Our initial reaction was very excited about Luka.
That’s all the tweets from the draft! Not really there were a whole bunch more but it’d be rude to put the entire timeline in one post, so this is it.
Remember all the best tweets come from @mavsmoneyball, so follow us for the best tweets on the internet, and long live Luka.
