Our Lottery History

Thebos_lottery-590x260_medium

2007: Jeff Green* (5)
2006: Randy Foye** (7)
2001: Joe Johnson (10), Kedrick Brown (11, via Denver)
2000: Jerome Moiso (11)
1998: Paul Pierce (9)
1997: Chauncey Billups (3), Ron Mercer (6 via Dallas)
1996: Antoine Walker (6, via Dallas)
1994: Eric Montross (9)
1986: Len Bias (2, via Seattle)

We have had 11 lottery selections since the process began. Only Pierce is a legitimate Hall of Famer. Antoine Walker, Joe Johnson and Chauncey Billups were All Stars (too bad we gave up JJ and CB). Jeff Green, Randy Foye, and Ron Mercer were impact starters (not for us until JG returned in a trade). The rest were backups except for Len Bias (R.I.P.)

It just goes to show you that if you are picking in the top 6 or 7 you're probably going to get a starting player that will have an impact on games. Hall of Famers are rare. Certainly rarer than busts.
