Draymond Green's rise from a second round draft pick to an All-Star and championship winner has been much publicised.
The Golden State Warriors forward has established himself as one of the league's premium two-way players, coming second in the voting for Defensive Player of the Year and eighth in the Most Valuable Player standings.
It is no secret that Green uses his selection as the 35th pick of the 2012 Draft as motivation - a number of lower order draftees do.
But quite astonishingly, the 26-year-old can name every player that went before him on that night, what team selected them and where they are now - whether that be in the D-League or the NBA.
Jon Wilner of Bay Area News Group wrote: "First was Anthony Davis to New Orleans," he says. "Then Charlotte took (Michael) Kidd-Gilchrist. Then Washington took Bradley Beal. Fourth was Cleveland: Dion Waiters.
"Eight was Toronto: Terrence Ross... Sixteen was Houston: Royce White... By the time he's done, Green has reeled off the names of all 34 players selected ahead of him and the corresponding team. In order.
It's quite incredible to think a talented player like Green could fall so far down the order given his current standing as a top-ten talent in the NBA.
In fact, the Warriors had already passed him twice that night, selecting Harrison Barnes with the seventh pick and Festus Ezeli with the final choice of the first round.
