NBA Draft: When 1 And 2 Become Stars

The odds of the top two NBA Draft picks both becoming hall-of-famers is next to zero (sorry Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker).

Going back fifty years there is only one NBA Draft where both the #1 and #2 overall picks turned into superstar, hall-of-fame level players.

Can you guess which draft that was?

It was in the 1990’s.

Can you guess the two players drafted?

They are both centers.



Shaquille O’Neal and Alonzo Mourning went 1, 2 that year to Orlando and Charlotte.

*cutoff for superstar was 40 career Win Shares and .14 WS/48 minutes
