With less than a week until the 2016 NBA Draft, hopeful prospects are getting ready for one of the greatest days of their lives. Sixty talented young men will be chosen to play the game they love in front of millions of adoring fans, while getting paid more than they’ve ever imagined. For months there has been much speculation about which player will be selected as the first round pick and which team they’ll go to.
