When Myles Turner elected to take his chances with the NBA after only one season at Texas, many criticized the former five-star recruit. After experiencing first-hand what kind of praise and criticism the former college talents awaiting tonight’s NBA Draft, and now having proven any doubters wrong after an exceptional rookie season with the Indiana Pacers, Turner took to Instagram to provide some wise words for those next up:

One thing Turner must be applauded on is his maturity and professionalism. Although he’s only got one year of experience under his belt, Turner already seems wise beyond his years. And Turner’s words could prove especially true for those like Texas’ Prince Ibeh and Isaiah Taylor, whom may not even hear their name called at all.
