After the June 20th death of #50 Caleb Swanigan, Jaden Ivey became the 50th player drafted to the NBA from Perdue on June 23rd, where he and Swanigan both attended. Adding insult to injury, Ivey was drafted by the Detroit Pistons, that began their franchise in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where Caleb Swanigan died. Furthermore, Swanigan died at age 25, having a square root of 5, and Ivey was drafted 5th overall, going with both Swanigan’s jersey number, and Ivey’s, which is 23.
50 = 5+0 = 5
23 = 2+3 = 5
