2023 NBA Mock Draft

The most highly anticipated NBA draft lottery in years was conducted Tuesday night. The San Antonio Spurs won the number 1 pick, and the teams picking number 2 through number 14 also learned their fates. San Antonio once selected David Robinson No. 1 overall, and then Tim Duncan No. 1 overall, before going on to use one or both of those eventual Naismith Memorial Hall of Famers to claim five NBA championships, won the NBA Draft Lottery on Tuesday night in Chicago for the third time in franchise history. That means San Antonio will select first overall in the 2023 NBA Draft on June 22 in New York. Victor Wembanyama will be the pick. The French sensation, the 7-foot-4 super-freak who has been described as the greatest teenage basketball prospect in history, learned his fate while surrounded by his family in Paris at around 2:30 a.m. local time. He seemed pleased, as he should be, because Wembanyama is now going to join one of the league’s greatest and most-admired franchises and be coached by a legend in Gregg Popovich. It’s the greatest NBA coach in history winding down his career by molding somebody who could become the greatest NBA player in history. It’s terrific for Popovich, even better for Wemby, and a process that’ll be a joy for all of the rest of us to watch unfold. Second pick is the Charlotte Hornets and third pick is the Portland Trail Blazers.
