1 – Fun Fact: Rautins was the first Canadian ever drafted in the first round of the NBA Draft. Don’t worry Canada, it gets better. Not much, but hey, you got Steve Nash.

2 - Charles Barkley misses out on the immortal status, simply because he has no ring.

3 - Drafted over Kevin Willis, however will not be penalized since Philly had Moses and just drafted Barkley. Fun Fact: Was a member of the 84 Olympic team and is currently an NBA official.

4 - Fun Fact: After retiring Strong became what I can only assume is the tallest professional stock car driver ever. However this is only the beginning of a bizarre 76er trend of drafting players that would, as the annoying NCAA commercial says “go pro in something else.”

5 - That’s right, Bradley was 7’6” and could not once crack 10 rebounds per game despite all those starts. He was also drafted over Penny Hardaway and Jamaal Mashburn.

6 - Here’s why I love this project. I learn things like this. Alphonso Ford went on to have a great career in Europe. He was a Greek League MVP in 2001, twice the top scorer in EuroLeague in 2001 and 2002, all while playing with leukemia which was diagnosed in 1998. He played his final season in 2003-04 in the Italian league. Despite playing what at the time was advanced stage leukemia he led the league in scoring, and helped Scavolini Pesaro advance to EuroLeague. He died shortly after the season. Today the top scorer in EuroLeague is now presented with the Alphonso Ford Top Scorer Trophy. I hope they take it with great honor. And yes, it got a little dusty in here while I was typing, I’m man enough to admit it.

7 - Fun Fact: According to Chris Young’s book Drive, BJ fell asleep with a bag of ice on his knee, which supposedly severely damaged it and caused his early retirement.

8- Fun Fact: This was a very interesting draft. Iverson at the top, then 3 players who were professionals in other sports. Mark Hendrickson is one of 12 players to play in both the NBA and MLB, acquiring a 50-74 record as a pitcher in 10 MLB seasons. Ryan Minor also played baseball and has been immortalized as a trivia question; Who took Cal Ripken Jr’s place in the lineup when his streak ended. Jamie Feick also went on to become a professional fisher. I don’t think there will be a more interesting draft than Philly’s 1996 draft. However, as I type this I still have 25 more teams to go.

9 - Larry Hughes had a solid career however he was drafted over not one but two HOFers in Paul Pierce and Dirk Nowitzki, both of who could have filled a need. They have to be punished for this, but minus 10 seems a little extreme. So we will assess a negative for one of these HOFers, but not both.

10- What?! Another 76er who had a pro career in something else! MacCulloch went on to compete in several world pinball tournaments. Even winning something called the Pinball Expo in Chicago and taking down the massive $3,000 prize. Oh, and he’ll always live in infamy for his Chapelle’s Show skit with Travis Knight. Plus I always think about him when they shout “MacCulloch” in Braveheart. He’s got a lot going for him.

11 - I’m going to give Iggy credit for 3 ASGs. I know he only has one in 8 seasons, but I like his game too much to keep him as low as a 6.

12 - Lou Williams only has 38 starts in his first seven seasons (all coming in one year) I couldn’t give him the bump to the next point group.

13 - We will guess that Speights will find 42 more starts in his young career.
