Default Re: Best Prospect For the '10 Draft?

I remember I informed Interminator of this in the NBA forum...

I'm not sure of the # now, it was either 4 or 5. But there's been very few players 6'5" or shorter who have gone #1 overall. Allen Iverson, Derrick Rose, and John Lucas were 3 of them. There was 1 or 2 more but I can't remember who. I'll check. Every other #1 overall pick in history has been 6'6" or taller and most at least 6'8". Wall will have to be amazingly good to out-do the bigs at the top of this draft class.

Edit: Austin Carr was the 4th. That's 4 players ever who have gone #1 overall while being 6'5" or shorter.
