May 20th was a night to remember for Philadunkia nation. Of course we aren’t 100% happy that we didn’t land the first overall pick in the upcoming 2014 NBA Draft, but we did pretty well for ourselves by landing two Top 10 selections.
In what some believe as the strongest draft class since 2003, we came away with both the 3rd and 10th picks. In theory, Sam Hinkie should be able to select two high quality prospects at those lottery slots that will help turn this franchise around. However, if you take a minute to examine the NBA Draft since 2000, you will find that there have been multiple booms and busts at the number three spot in the NBA draft.
Today, I will review and analyze for you the recent history of the No. 3 pick in the NBA Draft. Then on Saturday I will look closely at the recent history of the No. 10 pick in the NBA Draft.
