Come on Lucky 13!


Well.. The Raptors definitely didn't "win" the lottery.  They're sitting 13th, and it ain't pretty, she just looks that way.  Historically 13th has been about as hodge podge as it gets.  The odds of a 13th draft pick making it to year 4 of the NBA is probably less than 50/50, though when I get the time, I'll have to take a look at that a little more carefully.  The Raps already has a former 13th overall pick in Marcus Banks on their roster, but they've also had the likes of Keon Clark.   There have been some rare hits like Richard Jefferson, Corey Maggette, I wouldn't call them franchise changers.  But just once in a lifetime, there is a spectacular pick.. and the most famous 13th pick ever and it'll never happen again.. Kobe.

Historically here's the last few picks at # 13 in chronological order and who officially picked them:

Tyler Hansbrough, Indiana    

Brandon Rush,  Portland

Julian Wright, New Orleans

Thabo Sefolosha, Philadelphia

Sean May, Charlotte

Sebastian Telfair, Portland

Marcus Banks, Memphis

Marcus Haislip, Milwaukee

Richard Jefferson, Houston

Courtney Alexander, Orlando

Corey Maggette, Seattle

Keon Clark, Orlando

Derek Anderson, Cleveland

Kobe Bryant, Charlotte
