I was hoping they were not going to keep showing Game 6 of the Finals over and over. They are preparing for the upcoming draft and showing drafts from the past.

Watching this makes you realize how many players you have forget watching in the past 20 years.

Some things I found out I had no idea about

Tyrone Hill was 1st round draft pick
Bo Kimble only played 3 seasons
Mark Jackson was rookie of year in 87-88
Seattle traded Pippen to the Bulls

I could watch re-runs of game 6 every night for the next few months.

Kobe Bryant was the 13th pick to Charlotte in 1996, and traded to the Lakers for Vlade Divac. Alongside the signing of some guy named Shaquille Oneal. The rest, as they say, is history. If memory serves, the 1996 class has produced 3 MVPs: Kobe, Nash, and Iverson.

The Miami Heat currently have 3 of the top 5 picks from the 2003 draft: Lebron(1), Bosh(4), Wade(5).

In 1993 the Orlando Magic drafted Chris Webber at no.1, then traded him for the Golden State Warrior's number 3 pick, Anfernee 'Penny' Hardaway.

In 1998 the Toronto Raptors drafted Antawn Jamison at #4, only to trade him to Golden State for their # 5 pick, Vince Carter

Karl Malone was the number 13 pick in 1985

Sam Bowie was drafted # 2 in 1984, over some guy named Jordan.
