Ironically, Andre Drummond was picked No. 9 with the Detroit Pistons. Ten years ago, BC made a gamble on a high school kid named Amare Stoudemire with the No. 9 pick. An immature kid whose mother was in and out of prison, attended six different high schools in two different states, and whose brother died when he was 12. Phoenix was the only team to pick a high school player in the first round of the 2002 NBA draft. Considering the unstable background and raw potential of Amare, BC took the gamble and won.
