The 76ers didn’t walk away from the 2015 NBA Draft Lottery with a slew of first round selections. Hell, they didn’t even end up with the No. 1 overall pick in the 2015 Draft. Nope, the Timberwolves won the lottery last night, marking the first time since 2004 that the team with the worst record earned the No. 1 pick. The hated Lakers finished second which made Magic Johnson giddy on Twitter.
In the end, the 76ers could not defy the odds and finished third last night in New York. Sam Hinkie described the scenario as a, “a good outcome”. That certainly is one way to describe the events of last night, but it’s not enough for the scribes here at Philadunkia. When you go from the long-shot dream of “One. Six. Eleven.” to the reality of having the third pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, a few more words are necessary.
