Michigan State guard Max Christie was selected with the No. 35 overall selection in the 2022 NBA Draft. Coincidentally, No. 35 is the same pick that the Golden State Warriors selected Draymond Green with. If Christie can follow Green’s path in the NBA, he will be very successful.
The Spartan guard will be heading to Los Angeles, where he will play alongside Lebron James and Anthony Davis, among others, for one of the most iconic franchises in the NBA.

Another 35th pick from Michigan State. History says he’s going to be an All-Star 🤷🏿♂️

Max Christie goes No. 35 overall to the Lakers. Not bad.
Now it’s on him to develop into an NBA player. But getting drafted that high, the Lakers will be invested in him.

I don’t know who Max Christie is, I just know he’s going to help the Lakers win a championship next year.

Outstanding pick for the Lakers — Max Christie, 19, was a top-30 player and projected 1st-rounder on plenty of draft boards.
6’6 wing, elite shot mechanics, natural off-ball mover with potential to be a top-notch defender. The rare one-and-done Michigan State guy https://t.co/1GC6W1BaHl

The Lakers getting Max Christie is why you buy into the second round.

Max Christie gets drafted by the lakers. I love this pick. He’s really good defensively with length and then his upside as a shooter is extremely high. Shown flashes as a shot-maker. Will be used as a 3&D wing in the NBA with some flashes of off the dribble shooting.
