Only other time before that it’s happened was Magic 92/93 - O’Neal and Webber (who they traded for Penny and first rounders).

Impossible. The lottery started in 85.

Before that they used to do a coin flip to determine. The 84 draft was the last one to be determined that way when Houston beat Portland (had Indy’s pick) on the coin toss to draft Hakeem Olajuwon. Portland then drafted Sam Bowie in between Hakeem and someone named Michael Jordan lol.

Yeah I forgot 85 was the first lottery lol 

still though its rare that a team gets back to back 1st overall picks.

I'm excited to see what Jean Montero does with the OT Elite.

I'm intrigued to see how the OT Elite league functions this year. Jean looks like a good prospect as well although both he and Chandler are both pretty small guards.

All the main PG prospects in this class are relatively small guards. Dyson Daniels and Jaden Hardy are really the only potential combo/lead guards that aren't smaller. Of the more "pure" (for lack of a better word) PGs, TyTy Washington is the biggest at 6'3" 185. That's...uh...not great.

Yeah this is one of the weaker classes in recent memory for lead guards but it's stacked with bigs and bigger wings.

It's why I'd expect Dyson Daniels to rise throughout the process. He's 6'6" and has legit lead ballhandler ability. He's flawed but, ****, so are all the lead guards this year.

I don't watch much Big 10 basketball, thoughts on Jaden Ivey?
