The NBA Draft should be held in Vegas. Franchises gamble on players to change their team for the better. Sometimes, teams strike gold. Other times, teams mess up big time. Expectations are high on these rookies, and sometimes they just fail to deliver.

But some selections are more interesting than others. Years after a player is drafted, people ask questions.
