With the 2014 NBA Draft all wrapped up, fans can now thank the Cleveland Cavaliers for not screwing up and choosing Kansas Jayhawks star Andrew Wiggins as the Number One overall pick. There were a couple of slips and slides here and there, but it's still safe to say that this year's Draft fairly went well.
Now, all we have to do is wait for them to display their true potential at the NBA Summer League this month and at October's start of the 2014-2015 regular season. Meanwhile, join us as we take a closer look at this year’s draft class based on their awesome basketball mixtapes.
Welcome to FHM’s NBA Draft 2014 Mixtape!
Honorable Mention: Joel Embiid
Pick: #3 (Philadelphia 76ers)
The towering Cameroonian could have been this year’s overall top pick had he not injured his foot. Though reports indicate that his recovery may take six to eight months, the Sixers organization is strongly convinced that he’ll translate into the next Hakeem Olajuwon, and (hopefully) not another Greg Oden.
Why he’s here: Aside from being a force on the defensive end and making thunderous dunks look easy, that “Dream Shake” at 00:36 convinces us that this kid has a place in the NBA.
10) Jerami Grant
Pick: #39 (Philadelphia 76ers)
Syracuse forward Grant has all the physical tools needed to be an effective player. His 7’2’’ wingspan helps him do what he does best: destroy the rim.
Why he’s here: Dude sometimes turns into the Orange Hulk of Syracuse, dunking that ball angry every time he’s near the rim
9) Jabari Parker
Pick: #2 (Milwaukee Bucks)
