Its never about the number 1 pick or a certain player, wasn't last year and it isn't this year. 1. Collect Assets 2. ? 3. Profit.
Last years' lottery was all about Anthony Davis. He was the sure thing, and when he's healthy he still looks like it. That doesn't mean there weren't other good players in the top ten (there were), but sometimes there is one guy who's just a significantly better prospect. This year, McLemore looks like he's got the most potential, but there isn't the enormous gap there's been in others.
