2nd Pick Historically appears to be a bad bet


Well-Known Member
A quick look at the different picks over time shows a couple of things:

1. To get MVP - pick #1 (no duh item)
2. 2nd Pick is a bad spot - seems like trouble spot
3. 3rd pick is not bad - excellent chance at real contributor.
4. 9th pick is a pretty lucky spot -
5. Don't expecct much at 12

Here's the link to the 2nd pick - see if you agree. check out #9 too, while you are there.

How is this Jazz related?

Simple - he's basically implying "In this draft the T-Wolves will make the mistake of selecting Derrick Williams and the Jazz will capitalize by selecting an All Star in Kanter"

Sometimes you just have to read between the lines...
