We all know that Ben Simmons was drafted number one overall by the Philadelphia 76ers this summer, even though his career in the NBA hasn't gotten off to the start he would have liked.
Or at all. Simmons has been sidelined with a foot injury as the curse in Philly for high draft picks continues, but hopefully, the number one pick in the D-League draft won't have such troubles.
Anthony Brown was the No. 1 overall pick on Sunday in the NBA Development League draft, by the Erie BayHawks, an Orlando Magic affiliate.
Many of you may remember Brown from his stint with the L.A. Lakers last season after the Purple and Gold took the 6'7" forward in the second round of the 2015 draft.
Although his first tenure in the NBA was short and sweet, Brown did manage to appear in 29 games with 11 starts last year and had the pleasure of learning from the great Kobe Bryant in his final ever campaign.
Brown plans to apply the lessons he learned from Kobe to the D-League in a big to make his way back to the big time.
"The biggest thing that I took away from my time with Kobe was just the preparation that he came with to every game," Brown said. "Every game that he played, his preparation was so detailed and so focused. The game is just the result of everything you've already worked on."
