When the Detroit Lions drafted Ohio State star cornerback Jeffery Okudah with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, they knew they were getting a dedicated player on the football field, but some may not have realized how dedicated he would be to his new hometown off the field as well.

And we're not talking about dedicated in practice or workouts (while that's probably true), we're talking about his dedication to the city that is now his new home.

As many saw while watching the popular Michael Jordan documentary "The Last Dance," one of the more recent episodes was about the "Bad Boys" Detroit Pistons of the late 1980s. The documentary did not paint them in a positive light, whether warranted or not, and they instantly became as hated to this generation as they were to the one that watched them play in real time.

This didn't stop Okudah from showing his public support though, by posting a picture of the Pistons' championship celebration on his Instagram.


While every player is thankful to the team and city that drafted them, showing open support to the Bad Boys Pistons during this time will only get the Detroit fans even more fired up that Okudah will be lining up in a Lions uniform for years to come.
