The Sixers' 10-72 season paid off
The Philadelphia Sixers hold the #1 pick in the NBA Draft. After finishing with an atrocious 10-72 record, the Sixers were given the best odds to land the top pick in tonight's Draft Lottery and for the first time all season they gave their fans something to cheer about.
Many 'experts' believe Philly will use the #1 selection on Ben Simmons of LSU, an athletic 6'9 forward who plays like a point forward. A good comparison might be a cross between Draymond Green and the Greek Freak.
The Los Angeles Lakers landed the #2 overall pick and the Boston Celtics took #3. In all their were no surprises, everything went exactly as expected.
The Draft will take place on June 23rd, you can see the full order below... Who you got going #1?
