Wizards’ First Round draft pick, Troy Brown is a Vegas Golden Knights fan

Uh, oh it may get awkward in Capital One Arena.

The newest draft pick for the Washington Wizards, Troy Brown is a Vegas Golden Knights fan.

Brown, who went to high school in Las Vegas, Nevada, wore a Golden Knights’ jersey on draft night.

The 18-year-old must not have known he was going to Washington, the home of the 2018 Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals. He would have known better, right? Either way, we can't hold it against him because again he's from Vegas.

It’s a good thing it only took the Capitals five games to win the Cup, otherwise, that might make it a little tense. At least he wasn’t wearing a Pittsburgh Penguins jersey right?

Ted Leonsis will get him rocking the red in no time.

Troy Brown's reaction to becoming a Wizard was absolutely priceless

The NBA Draft is a special night for a select few young men and their families. Being drafted into the NBA is a life-altering moment.

The reactions players have are often heart-warming moments. Troy Brown's reaction to becoming a Washignton Wizard with the No. 15 pick in the 2018 NBA Draft was one of those moments.

With his family and friends in a bowling alley (!!!) Brown celebrated the right way: with immediate exuberance and then by hugging his family. This is a moment he and his loved ones will remember forever, and now there's a video for him to watch over and over again.
