THE FRENCH FRYER with Steve French

I FEEL A DRAFT, NBA EDITION
French Fryer

    The NBA Draft, Thursday on ESPN, can be a fascinating thing if you're a basketball junkie.  Of course it helps to have a couple of the 60 picks, the Cavaliers have zero.  But I digress.  The #1 pick goes to Philadelphia, and it will be Washington guard Markelle Fultz.  I've heard he's good, but I don't know.  Nobody east of Seattle has ever seen him play.  The fact is, at least half of the 30 first round picks will never be a factor in the NBA at all.  Look at how the best teams were built.  The Cavs are the exception, featuring two #1 picks, a #1 pick traded for Kevin Love, and #1 pick mega-bust in Anthony Bennett.  Steph Curry went 7th, Klay Thompson 11th, Draymond Green 35th.  Kawai Leonard was a 15, Manu Ginobli a 57 (!?).  Then there's Boston's Isaiah Thomas, taken 60th, LAST, in 2011.  So you just never know..
