The Pups have certainly had a rocky relationship with the NBA Draft. I mean, look at this! Ugh!
Which draft would you say is the best and worst for the franchise? Which was your favorite? Here's mine:
Best: 2008 – Love (via Mayo) and Pekovic. This could/should have been a slam dunk, but McHale didn't get Kyle Lowry in the trade with Memphis (he fit in under the salary cap and with all other parts already included in the trade) and we traded away Mario Chalmers for cash. When the team desperately needed a PG! Still, this is the best draft for the team, bar none – unless you go solely on 1995 and the arrival of KG.
Honorable mention to 1989: which eventually became our starting backcourt with Pooh Richardson and Doug West.
Worst: 2010 – David Kahn strikes out again. A year after being made the butt of all PG jokes, Kahn really whiffed and those mistakes cost the current roster a very real chance of being favorite in the WC and entire NBA. I'm not being facetious here at all. Imagine this team with Paul George, Rubio, Love, and Pek. Now go grab a cold one to cool off / calm down. With three first round picks, Kahn basically punted on the entire draft and we have nothing to show for it three years later. That's pathetic. Like, you have to try really hard to be this bad.
(There are too many "honorable" mentions for this)
