The Sixers have been picking from the top of the lotto for several years while the Celtics have had basically one lotto pick in Marcus Smart. Their circumstances are quiet different.
Also Jaylen Brown.
Yeah, he's brand new so there's no real way to judge how good he is, but generally speaking he is considered to have been a good pick despite the fact that most boards thought he shouldn't have gone #3. So up to this point, isn't Brown looking like a good pick?
Coincidentally , both lotto picks the Celtics have had have been more productive than the Sixers top picks from those respective drafts due to health.
I'm actually not following how Marcus Smart was a bad pick? He is better or as good as pretty much anyone picked around him, and is better than a couple of players picked before him, and is healthier than the 2nd and 3rd picks. Unless Ainge is getting panned for not drafting Jokic, I'm not following what players are light years better?
