Since Magic Johnson was drafted No. 1 overall by the Los Angeles Lakers in 1979, just one other true point guard has been taken with the top pick.
That player was an unbelievable athlete with endless highlight-reel plays and the kind of upside that rivaled Johnson's. He was a product of John Calipari's dribble-drive offense, and the star of a team that didn't seem to lose, loaded with NBA talent. He was a freshman when he entered the NBA Draft, disproving the ideology that lead guards only ripen with experience.
This weekend the Euroleague enters it's final stage, the European Final Four, to be held at the Plais Omni Sport Complex in Paris, France. A great venue and city for such a competition. Every NBA team will have representatives in attendance and NBADraft.net has 4, covering the men’s and (1992 and under) junior events. Junior Tournament Rosters. The junior event kicks off on Thursday afternoon.
