Shabazz Muhammad was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves with the No. 14 pick in the 2013 NBA Draft but was not in the building to take the stage and shake NBA commissioner David Stern's hand. Initially, that is.
After Stern announced the Chicago Bulls selection of Tony Snell he revealed that Muhammad was ready to make his way to the stage. In a case of "better late than never", Muhammad appeared on stage seemingly out of nowhere, which you can see in the GIF below:
So why did Muhammad decide to show up despite missing his moment? He wanted to shake Stern's hand during his final time serving as commissioner during the draft and called it "special," according to ESPN True Hoop's Henry Abbott. Shaking Stern's hand as a first-round draft pick has become an iconic moment for freshly drafted players and Muhammad made it in time for his "special" moment with Stern.
