I'm against picketing but I don't know how to show it.

From what I remember, this was looked like a boom or bust pick. I think the board was ok with it because, gotta swing for a home run as we were in just a garbage place.

Many on the board saw how special he was in summer league. The flashes were there.

I liked it. I mean our team sucked and it was the 15th pick. If anyone criticized it they were delusional.

He was either 1a or 1b for me. Like the Russian guy as well. Made a shirt of giannis the night he was drafted since I figured the bucks wouldn't.

I was at Jazz in the Park following the draft on my phone, I'll never forget it. When the name popped up of who we picked I assumed it was some big European stiff and then I googled him and got really excited that he was a raw, really talented not European stiff.
Winning.

I loved the pick. I started a Giannis highlight thread in 2014, and never looked back. Truly unaware of how great he would be, I knew he would be special.

I was also grateful that we got Jabarl the following year... So there is that. I was at the SL game when the two played against Utah. Gobert and Rodney Hood squashed them in a sleepover. I think the light turned on when Kidd greenlighted PG Giannis. Man we had some ******* lineups back then.

Good times, definitely a journey with some fantastic avatars I claim as psuedo friends.

Amazing what one guy can do for a franchise. That pick is going to be worth billions. Shane Larkin was Hammonds' fall back if Giannis wasn't there at #15. :o

I know hingsight is 20-20 but was this board all for parker to over embiid to or did the majority want embiid.I never thought embiid would be this good when healthy

Before Embiid's last pre-draft injury most of the board was on the train. After he hurt his back? there was a split between Parker/Wiggins and a smaller group remaining in the Embiid camp.

I remember me and PP were on him for an age. I think I quit when he screwed his foot (or was that first?)

Embiid and Giannis??? Man...
