Defining Moments in Toronto Raptors Draft History

The 2009 NBA Draft is coming up on Wednesday, June 25th. Some teams have better luck in the draft then others. The San Antonio Spurs had the good fortune of winning the draft lottery twice and selecting two of the top 50 players ever in David Robinson and Tim Duncan. On the other hand, you have teams like Portland (Sam Bowie and Greg Oden) or the Detroit Pistons - who had a chance to become a dynasty by drafting second overall and having the good fortune of selecting from one of four young stars, Carmelo Anthony, Darko Milicic, Dwayne Wade or Chris Bosh. They went the bold direction by selecting the European talent in Milicic and while the other players have become all-stars and gold medal winners, Milicic has been traded twice after spending his three-year Piston career on the bench. The Raptors haven't been great or awful in their drafting, but they do have some defining moments.
