The moment is not lost on the 6-foot-8 Hachimura, who spent three seasons in relative anonymity at Gonzaga, in the West Coast Conference. Though he held his own media day for Japanese reporters when he was at Gonzaga, the draft is, in effect, his American debut. He said a junior high school coach in Japan once told him this moment would come. “It’s been crazy,” Hachimura told reporters in New York on Wednesday. “I can’t even believe when I started playing basketball, the coach pointed at me and he said, ‘You’re going N.B.A.’ And somehow, I was stupid, and I believed him.”
