Although this season's journey continues, the district finals in the East and West Districts are in full swing. Under this circumstance, the officials have confirmed the position of each team in this year’s draft. This is also considered as a preparation for the new season. It.
Lastly, the king's chances reached the second place, and the top pick was Successfully attributed to the worst record of the Suns this season, for the sun lottery rookie Josh - Jackson's lucky underwear has become a hot topic.
It is worth mentioning that this is the first in the history of the Suns. The top picks. They have entered the NBA since 1968 and have already had 50 years of team history. It was only after this year that they finally won blood. This was the first time that it was surprising.
So far has the team never won the draft pick?
In the early days of the NBA, the league draft was somewhat similar to the current CBA. The number of candidates is small and many teams will give up their draft picks. In addition, many clubs in the early league did not continue today, which also led to those old drafts that do not seem to have reference value.
Calculated from 1957, when the draft form began to stabilize, to last year In the summer, the Cleveland Cavaliers were the luckiest team in the 60 drafts. In 1970, they had won 6 renaults so far, Austin Carr in 1971, Brand Elder in 1986, LeBron James in 2003, Kyrie Irwin in 2011, and Anthony in 2013. Nate, Andrew Wiggins, 2014. In the case of five times in history that had less than 5% chance of winning the champion, there were two times belonging to the Cavaliers. In 2011, Owen won the first place in the championship.The probability is only 2.8%. In 2014, Wiggins won the bid as low as 1.7%.
After the Suns receded, the only teams that have not touched the top pick are the Grizzlies, Jazz, Hornets, Nuggets, Pacers, Heat and Thunder. .
The 7 teams have the longest history of squadron walks The Nuggets and the Nuggets have all entered the league in 1976. It has been unlucky to have failed to win the championship for more than 40 years. The Hornets' former Hornets have had the shortest team history, but they also have 28 years of history.
And if Thunder doesn't add a supersonic team history, then They only took 10 seasons, and the highest one was Durant. (Of course, the Sonics didn't catch the top pick). Although there are no top picks, they have to say the talent and talent of the Thunder. In 2007, Durant Oden was not equal. If the Pioneers who won the No. 1 pick did not pick the big one, Odom was unlucky. It was the Thunder. In 2008, the Thunder missed the top three and picked up a big deal at the 4th pick. Wei Shao was selected, and Ross, Beasley and Mayo each had their own problems. In 2009, the arrival of Harden was also a gift. It was a wonderful choice to compare Griffin and Thabit.
So, the top pick can't be the absolute element of the team's ability to rise. As for the new rookie's performance, the time will give the answer.
