The Top Two Picks in the NBA Draft Rarely Become the Two Best Players

Victor Wenbanyama and Scoot Henderson are projected to be the top two picks in the 2023 NBA Draft

The 2023 NBA Draft is shaping up to be one of the rare instances in which there are multiple prizes.

In fact, experts are saying that this draft class may even have four or five players that could help transform a franchise. However, there is an absolute consensus that Victor Wenbanyama and Scoot Henderson should go first and second in the draft, respectively.

While Wenbanyama appears to be a generational talent and is the most hyped prospect since LeBron James, Henderson would be the top pick in almost any other year, so whatever team ends up in the second spot will have a hell of a consolation prize.

Still, that team should be wary. Rarely do the top two picks end up being the two best players in that class.

In fact, it has not happened more than five times since 1960. Five times in sixty years.

The LOX Have Some of the Best Hooks in Rap History

“N—as rhymes be aight but they need hooks”

Rappers and hip-hop artists of a certain type value lyricism (“bars”) over pretty much everything else.

As a purist, I appreciate that, but I think it ignores a vital yet rare skill that only some MCs possess, even those that can fill notebooks: the ability to write and deliver a great chorus.

MC’s that can craft an intricate hook hold a higher spot in my personal rankings and the LOX have some of the best rap choruses in hip-hop history.

There Is No Debate: LeBron James Is the NBA Player of the Decade

via China Daily

On Christmas day, The New York Times published an editorial in which it asked some of its sportswriters who the NBA’s best player of the decade was and the nod went to Stephen Curry.

While the Times conceded the only other possibility was LeBron James, Curry won “in a landslide.”
