Most of the time, drafting in the NBA is a critical part of the year, as it gives teams the chance to add fresh, young talent that can improve their chances of winning, or provide trade bait for the latest superstar to hit the trading block.
But some seasons, the talent available is so transcendent that the draft can alter the entire trajectory of a franchise. One of our best examples comes in 1984. After Houston predictably drafted the college phenom, Hakeem Olajuwon, the Portland Trailblazers picked Sam Bowie, allowing the Chicago Bulls to make the most crucial selection in team history — drafting a shooting guard from the University of North Carolina named Michael Jordan. Bowie would later be included on a Sports Illustrated list of biggest draft busts in history. Jordan, as you might have heard in the three and a half decades since that fateful night, was not a bust. He went on to lead the Bulls to six NBA championships and is now considered the greatest player to ever set foot on an NBA court.
But hey, you're not here to revisit history; you probably know all that stuff. You just want to know, to make your daydreams more accurate, which big league squad would be welcoming you to the roster on draft night? We got you! Shoot through these questions, and we'll let you know which team's hat you'll be putting on when you join the league.
