For this big day, Mathurin has put on a spectacular red and black coat with a pendant bearing the words “DomixWorld” to pay tribute to his brother Dominique, who died seven years ago.
Remember that Mathurin, 20, could logically become the earliest Quebecer drafted in NBA history. Several observers predict that the product of the Wildcats of the University of Arizona will be chosen among the first 10 of the current vintage.
