Since I’m from the Philippines, I had to wake up before 7:00 am just to be ready to watch the 2006 NBA Draft live. I just have to say that it was well worth the trouble of waking up much much earlier than I normally do. It’s great to see so many teams making anywhere […]

News is out that the Toronto Raptors are holding on to their number 1 pick instead of trading it down.

With all the excitement about how the draft lottery went and how the Toronto Raptors got the number one overall pick, it’s time to think about how the teams would pick come draft day.

Wednesday, May 24th, 2006

The spirits of the ping pong balls have spoken and they said “Bryan Colangelo, your Raptors will get the number one pick!” Well, not really but the point is that the Raptors won the Draft Lottery and will pick first in this year’s draft.
