Alright, since KG is the obvious number 1, I'm gonna redo the entire lottery instead of just #1 so that it actually requires some thinking.

1. Kevin Garnett(5th Overall)
2. Jerry Stackhouse(3rd Overall)
3. Michael Finley(21st Overall)
4. Rasheed Wallace(4th Overall)
5. Antonio McDyess(2nd Overall)
6. Damon Stoudamire(7th Overall)
7. Kurt Thomas(10th Overall)
8. Eric Snow(43rd Overall)
9. Theo Ratliff(18th Overall)
10. Brent Barry(15th Overall)
11. Joe Smith(1st Overall)
12. Corliss Williamson(13th Overall)
13. Gary Trent(11th Overall)


You have to take into account what you know about these current players:
-Rasheed Wallace's attitude
-McDyess's injuries
-Stoudamire's weed

Random Notes:

And you wouldn't necessarily take who's better now, because Stoudamire would be lower, but he had some very good seasons earlier in his career... Overall, this is a difficult thing to do, but that's what I came up with... I chose Stackhouse 2nd because the guy is a proven scorer in the league, I mean, he did average 29.8 ppg for an entire season. Very few players can claim that, Rasheed can't even claim a 19.8 point average for an entire season. Eric Snow was definitely the steal of the draft...

I remember that draft very succintly, as my childhood opponent, Ed O'Bannon was a lottery pick in that draft. As I have told numerous people, O'Bannon was never the same player after tearing up his knee the frosh year at UCLA.

As easy as it is to pick KG #1 now, he was far from the lottery early in the year (1995). Had he been eligible, he probably would have suited up for Rick Pitino for a year or two at Kentucky. I remember there being some talk of declaring for the draft during the telecast of the McD All-American game. At first I thought it was unlikely, but then I watched him grab a defensive board, dribble down court, go behind the back to get past a defender, and then throw a no-look pass for an assist. It was a sign of things to come.....
