There are some teams that get it right, like the Spurs, and some teams that have a penchant for messing it all up.
Who are the biggest draft-day screw-ups?
My vote goes to my favorite team, Portland. Drafting Sam Bowie first in 1984 is as bad as it gets, considering that year was the most talented NBA class ever.
And many people overlook 2005. Portland traded down from the third to the sixth pick, taking Martell Webster instead of Chris Paul, Deron Williams and a host of other much better players.
I don't think drafting Brandon Roy was a mistake, although giving him that contract was.
