Cohen 8-Ball: If There Were No Draft Lottery
Josh Cohen’s Analysis (Jan. 26, 2014): The Sacramento Kings figured they caught a break in 2009-10. While Blake Griffin missed his entire first season with a knee injury, Tyreke Evans, who the Kings selected fourth overall, would have a marvelous Rookie of the Year campaign.
That outlook would drastically change shortly after, however, as Griffin evolved into an electrifying spectacle and Evans' performance would gradually deteriorate -- thus leading to his departure.
