That's brutal. I have no clue how DWill and CP3 weren't top three picks. Did interviews not count for anything back then? Because CP3 has always had a bball (and academic) IQ off the charts. Also he's a born leader. DWill is just a big point-guard for his size who has great playmaking; I guess he could have been looked over as not the best shooter?
