3 of them this decade aren't in the league(Josh Childress, Dajuan Wagner, and Dermarr Johnson). Wally S. was mediocre. Antoine Walker underachieved. Danilo Gallinari was oft-injured. Sharone Wright from the 90's right a bell. Could be a curse. Shane Battier has never been an All-Star. Don't have the stats in front of me off hand but it is a bad number.
your a superstital moron, it just depends on how hard the player wants to work to reach his full potential
As a Wiz fan I do remember those superstitious rumors in the '92 draft but choosing Googs over Walt the Wizard Williams at #6 was one of the best picks they've made. If it goes like the mock Derozan could be a bust in the form of Dorell Wright or he could be good. Whoever gets it should just take Earl Clark, I see nothing but upside in that big guy. Soft hands, unselfish, decent jumpship, 6'10'' ish, small forward.
childress went to europe because he is getting paid A LOT.
lot more than a player his caliber could dream of in NBA.
and he was a decent player
i was looking through some old drafts, and surprisingly there were a lot of bad players taken at #6 like you said. but i don't really think it matters. keep in mind, another player taken at #6 just a couple years ago was brandon roy....and look how he's doing now....
i thought the bulls were going to be to nice when they got Stacey King at #6 in 1989. Stacey won three with the Bulls but it wasn't cause of him (or was it, LOL).
If ima GM im trading the 6th Gallo is proof enough. ugh
ya, but last time the twolves picked 6th they got b-roy! and then traded him.....but the point is, we drafted b-roy! maybe this time without mchale we'll figure out how to keep a good player for once... they also picked wally at #6 and even though he wasn't amazing, he was a solid player and a fan fav so maybe our wolves will be ok with the 6th pick anyways. i really hope so....
