A Diamond in the Ruff

I was just surfing on the web when I came across a statement about Nate Robinson being drafted by the Pheonix Suns with their 21st overall pick in 2005 before being traded to the Knicks. Which I in turn said no way. because...

 

in 2006, a year later Rajon Rondo was drafted by the Pheonix Suns with their 21st overall pick before being traded to the Celtics. Which is just mind blowing.

So both our PGs were drafted by the Suns with the same number pick (21) a year apart from eachother. So then I started thinking, well what if the Suns kept their picks. I know that having the 21st pick isnt all its crack up to be you ussally can only get a semi good quality role player.But I wonder if they are kicking them selves now, looking at the finals and seeing both their first round picks on the same team killing it? And I wonder if the Suns would be there if only they kept their picks.

Having Steve Nash,Rajon Rondo, and Nate Robinson on the Same team right now, in theory would be ridiculous, but nate would get no min. and rondo would have never molded into the player hes become

but now im looking at this year and im starring at the Celtics who have the 19th pick in the draft, two spots better than Nate and Rondo and im just thinking(hopeing) maybe we might be able to find another Diamond in the Ruff.

its to bad Pheonix dont have a first round pick this year. I wouldnt mind trading for it.lol
