The Philadelphia 76ers have had their success in the past, but every Philadelphia sports fan can tell you that they aren't the luckiest team out there in modest words.
Every year there's this thing called the NBA Draft. Well, every year there's always that number one guy with the most potential and others of course with high expectations in the league.
As every basketball fan can speculate, not every good college basketball player translates into a good NBA player. In fact, it's a hard transition in every sport from college to the pros, but for some reason, the NBA seems like it's the hardest.
Every year there is always a couple players with extremely high expectations. Sometimes they succeed into All-Stars and other times they become a bust.
But what makes it even worse, is if a team drafts a bust, they most likely passed on a great player and the team looks back with regret and remorse (a la Darko Milicic and the Detroit Pistons).
The Sixers have had some success during past drafts, but they have also had a lot of busts as well.
