Overcoming Adversity: Keyontae Johnson's Inspiring Journey to the NBA and eToro's Basketball Sponsorship

Keyontae Johnson's Path to the NBA

Despite being drafted late in the second round of the 2023 NBA Draft, Keyontae Johnson's adversity proves he shouldn’t be counted out at the next level.

Johnson collapsed on the court due to a heart condition during his junior season with the Florida Gators, jeopardizing his basketball career.

Opting to decline a $5 million insurance payout, Johnson pushed forward to pursue his dream of playing in the NBA.

After transferring to Kansas State, Johnson resumed his basketball career and showcased his skills, leading the team to a deep tournament run.

With his versatile skillset and build, Johnson is a perfect fit for the Oklahoma City Thunder's positionless style of play.
