The seventh overall pick of the NBA draft Emmanuel Mudiay, who says his favorite number is seven, took a few moments to chat with us via conference call on draft night.

Ty Lawson didn’t seem to be too enthused when his Nuggets took the 6’6″ point guard, but Mudiay had nothing but good things to say.

Mudiay is only 19 and took a different route to the NBA. Instead of playing a year in college, he spent time overseas playing for the Guangdong Southern Tigers in China. He thinks it helped his development.

As for his goals for the Nuggets, he has championship aspirations.

Mudiay also told us he doesn’t shy away from a challenge on the defensive end of the floor.

The Nuggets will formally introduce Mudiay at Pepsi Center on Friday.
