First Surprise

The top two picks in this Draft have been obvious since Kevin Durant and Greg Oden declared for the Draft. No. 3 could have been the first question mark of the Draft, but it became clear recently that the Hawks were taking a serious look at Al Horford. Lo and behold, Atlanta selected the Florida forward.

What we didn't know is where the Memphis Grizzlies and new GM Chris Wallace would go with the fourth pick. Turns out it's Mike Conley, Jr., the Ohio State point guard and teammate of Greg Oden in both high school and college. Conley established himself as the top available point guard during a brilliant NCAA Tournament run.
