The NBA draft is today. Careers will begin and for old players it can be the end to their career and more family time.
The draft of 1984 is regarded as the best of all time and it’s pretty easy to see why.
The number 1 pick was- Hakeem Abdul Olajawon. How can you lose when you have ‘won’ in your surname.
The third pick was a player who went on to achieve a few things in his career; Michael Jordan.
Number 4 was Charles Barkley.
John Stockton went at 16 and then Oscar Schmidt was the 131st pick.
All five players are Hall of Famers and in 1996 were named in the top 50 Greatest Players in NBL History!
I don’t think Big Brother was really around then, but he’ll definitely be watching the draft this year.
