The 2019 NBA Draft media day was held on June 19, one day before the actual Draft, and the top prospects were available to the public. Among them, the 19-year-old Georgian center Goga Bitadze as well.
Bitadze got a lot of attention after a photo of his went viral. It shows Bitadze sitting all alone while to his right, Zion Williamson got swarmed by journalists.
We still love you Goga https://t.co/WgIaqUH6EJ

However, the photo was taken after Bitadze’s media session was over and he did get a fair share of attention earlier.
Goga commented on the whole situation for Eurohoops later on noting that he isn’t at all bothered by it. In fact, he recognizes Zion as a great player and all of this just gives him extra motivation: “It just makes me more hungry and humble to see this guy get a lot of focus. I know he’s a great player, he’s probably the top player but that doesn’t bother me at all. I had people come and ask me questions so it doesn’t bother me at all. It’s all good and I’m really excited about this process”
Hear it from Goga Bitadze himself:
