With the NBA season half way done many teams are looking to the draft to revamp their roster. When it comes to the draft teams have a good idea who are going to be the top players and who are not. Though there have been a few players to sneak up on teams and make their way in to the lottery. Players such as Victor Oldadipo, Russell Westbrook and Damian Lillard have slipped up in the draft and have put their mark on not only their teams but also the entire league. With the upcoming draft many have declared that this is suppose to be one of the top drafts in recent years.

Leading up to this year’s NBA Draft was minimal anticipation. A draft that lacked potential superstars but filled with players who predict to have average NBA careers gave its fans and viewers nothing to be too excited about heading into Thursday night. Once David Stern took the podium (and boo’s) and announced the Cleveland Cavaliers to be on the clock, surprise and shock would soon be the new words of the night. Surprising everyone, the Cavs selected freshman power forward Anthony Bennett out of UNLV with the first overall pick. Nerlens Noel, Victor Oladipo, Alex Len and Ben McLemore were all names that looked to be in the mix of the number one pick and just about no one had Bennett slotted there, except the Cavaliers. Trades, international talent and another player from a mid-major program landing in the top 10 are the other storylines that became of notice. Here’s a recap of it all.

Prior to the 2012-13 season, Cody Zeller couldn’t have had it much better. His Indiana Hoosiers were the #1 team in the nation. He was preseason player of the year and was on the cover of ESPN The Magazine. He was a sure fire top-3 pick in the draft if he left after his sophomore year. He was the biggest star on the country’s most talented team.
