At last week’s pre-draft camp in Chicago, I posed the following question to 31 draft-eligible players: If you were a general manager and had the No. 1 pick in the June 26 draft, whom would you select?

The players were granted anonymity and the only stipulations placed on their response was that they couldn’t vote for themselves and that they couldn’t vote for one of their teammates from college.

In a draft, where NBA officials and so-called basketball experts adamantly insist there are four or even five legitimate No. 1 candidates, Jabari Parker blew away the field.  Racine Journal-Times
