Despite only having a six percent chance at landing the No. 2 pick, the Sixers pulled out a miracle and defied those odds on Tuesday night.
A few weeks back, I profiled five players the Sixers should draft at No. 6.
I'm happy to report that list is now completely meaningless.
Now, much like the formerly-Seattle Supersonics three years ago, the Sixers find themselves literally in the easiest spot in the draft. They're wasting everyone's time if they take more than 10 seconds to submit their choice.
The Sixers pick whichever of John Wall and Evan Turner that the Wizards don't choose with the No. 1 overall pick. I'm assuming that despite Gilbert Arenas' return from his year-long suspension, the Wizards will select Wall with the No. 1.
That puts the Sixers on the clock at the No. 2. Let's check out why they absolutely must draft Evan Turner, and how he's actually the best possible player the Sixers could have hoped for.
