Notre Dame never had a player drafted by the NBA after only one season. That officially has changed with the San Antonio Spurs drafting Blake Wesley with the 25th overall pick. The debate of how he will fit into Gregg Popovich’s system will last for the next few months and maybe beyond. For now, it’s time to celebrate one of the Irish’s best recent players making the leap to basketball’s highest level.

Naturally, the celebration has made its way to Twitter. Teammates, coaches and media personnel took to their accounts to congratulate Wesley as well as offer analysis about the news.
