Bill Simmons top 60 NBA Draft moments...

Usually only avalible on Insider - for some reason freely availible now - worth a look...

My comments...

No. 55 is pretty ironic given events since...

No. 1 - I have searched for this on youtube (sounds like a riot) given Steve Francis is such a big girls blouse - totally palusible... Anyone seen this???

Gotta love Bill Simmons' stuff. He writes just like a fan, rather than a journalist.

what about #41 with the aussie flavour...

No. 41
1997: The Mavs take center Kelvin Cato, a former dishwasher who ended up at Iowa State after a growth spurt. TNT's two "draft facts" about him are "Never played high school basketball" and "Owns a 9-foot Burmese python snake." Apparently rattled by these facts, Dallas immediately deals Cato to Portland for the No. 18 pick (Chris Anstey) and monetary considerations
