Hinkie was such a polarizing character. But I think Philly realized the error of the ways by hiring Morey, Hinkie's mentor. There was a running gag in this city where people would portray Hinkie as the savior and after he was forced out for Burner Brian, would say, "Hinkie died for our sins." Lol

I remember Bleacher Report featuring that in Game of Zones lol

One of the best YouTube short series out there. Highly recommend for fans of the NBA and GOT!

Anthony Bennett. Admittedly, I wasn't the biggest follower of college basketball in 2013, but I had no clue who he was when we took him #1.
At least my takes will never be as bad as 6-year-old me thinking the winless Dolphins would beat the undefeated Patriots.

I remember being a bit shocked we took him at the time but also I didn't mind it because the class was so weak and they were shooting for the moon with his mix of size, skillset, and athleticism. It just didn't work out as he was unbelievably lazy and didn't work at all from a ton of reports I've read.

As a Raptors fan, it has to be Rafael Ara├║jo, drafted eighth in 2004 and somehow picked over Andre Iguodala

I have to agree with that. The only one I can think of that comes close is probably drafting Marcus Camby in the 1996 NBA Draft, when there were players like Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash, Stephon Marbury, and Shareef Abdur-Rahim still in the draft.

At least Camby was still a good NBA player! Not a superstar, but not the worst pick

Anthony. Bennett. I wasn't the biggest fan of CBB in 12-13, but I knew enough about the top prospects because the Cavaliers had the top pick.

I still remember saying "who"
At least my takes will never be as bad as 6-year-old me thinking the winless Dolphins would beat the undefeated Patriots.

Yeah that pick was brutal for our Cavs. Luckily it was such a weak class that it didn't make a difference.

I know Giannis was in that class but literally nobody was considering him with the top pick so I can't fault them for not taking him #1 overall.
