After one of the wildest first picks in NBA Draft history, the Magic go with Oladipo. This kid is an incredible defender who is immediately going to help turn around Orlando’s “loser” mentality. When you’re building a team in this day and age, you need leaders. You need winners. Oladipo is all of that, and is only going to get better. Three years ago, he wasn’t even on the radar for NBA scouts. Now he’s the No. 2 pick.

We saw him play in high school, and while the athleticism was there, he barely stood out at DeMatha. He’s going to have to stand out at the next level to make up for this pick.

Was this the right move?
