Default Its fascinating that Darko is in Memphis, the original owners of the 2nd pick in 2003

Detroit only had that pick becasue of the Otis Thorpe trade in 1997. That was the Grizzlies' pick. Okay its not mind-boggling but kind of interesting.

Yep. It was #1 protected too, meaning had Memphis moved up that final spot they would have been able to keep the first pick and take LeBron James. Must have been agony for Jerry West as they were opening those final envelopes during the 03 lottery. He was either going to get LeBron James, or he was going to get nothing.


The Pistons were a conference finalist in 2003, only way to have that second pick is through a trade.
