The 2018 NBA Draft was absolutely stockpiled with young, immense talent available for selection all-around. Prior to the draft lottery, Kings fans were debating the merits of guys like Mikal Bridges and Mohamed Bamba. But for the second straight year, the Kings overcame the lottery odds and unbelievably jumped into the draft with the second overall pick, their highest selection since 1989.
There was no way they could mess this pick up. No way. Right? For a franchise who the basketball Gods have seldom favored, they gifted the Kings one of the best picks in a loaded class.
