The Golden State Warriors have just won their fourth NBA championship in the last eight seasons, and while most of the talk has been centered around Steph Curry finally winning Finals MVP, there has been a lot of love shown to Andrew Wiggins as well. The 27-year-old former No. 1 overall pick was arguably the team’s second-best player throughout this postseason. It’s a position few saw Wiggins occupying while he was toiling away in Minnesota, but Dubs owner Joe Lacob, along with head coach Steve Kerr, saw something special in him and recently spoke about that in a recent interview. “He’s a prototypical wing who just played for a not-so-good team, didn’t get perhaps the best culture. We thought if you put him in our situation, he could be great. He didn’t have to be 1A. You saw what he did in these playoffs. He was really, really great.”
Which brings us to today’s quiz of the day. The NBA implemented a lottery system beginning with the 1985 draft. Since then, 37 players have gone No. 1 overall, including Wiggins, who was selected by the Cavs with the top choice back in 2014. So with that in mind, how many of the top overall picks from the NBA’s lottery era can you name in five minutes?
