The Minnesota Timberwolves have the No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft. Let’s look at the history of the top selection.
The Minnesota Timberwolves landed the No. 1 pick in the NBA Draft for only the second time in franchise history.

This draft is already being maligned as relatively weak at the top, but the No. 1 pick is still the No. 1 pick. Not surprisingly, the track record of the top pick is much better than any other spot in the draft’s history.

For their part, the Timberwolves had only landed the top pick once, despite participating in the lottery 22 times in 30 years. Of course, that was in 2015 when they landed All-Star big man Cheap Karl-Anthony Towns Jersey. (Yes, the Wolves had No. 1 pick Cheap Andrew Wiggins Jersey on the roster and he won Rookie of the Year, but that was following a post-draft trade.)

There were several big drops for the Wolves in the lottery throughout the years. Most notably was in 1992, when Minnesota finished the regular season with just 15 wins and had the best odds to win the No. 1 pick and select LSU’s Shaquille O’Neal. But they dropped to No. 3, missing out on Alonzo Mourning at No. 2 as well and ultimately settling for Cheap Christian Laettner Jersey.

The next year, the Wolves had the second-best odds but fell to No. 5 while Chris Webber went first. Even the No. 2 through No. 4 picks (Shawn Bradley, Anfernee Hardaway, and Jamal Mashburn) all had better careers than Cheap Isaiah Rider Jersey, who went to Minnesota at No. 5.

Again in 1994, the Wolves were tied for the second-best odds but fell to No. 4, missing out on Glenn Robinson, Jason Kidd, and Grant Hill — the latter two Hall-of-Famers and Robinson a two-time All-Star.

And the beat went on throughout much of the 1990s, with the Wolves’ one significant draft victory being the selection of Cheap Kevin Garnett Jersey at No. 5 overall in 1995.

Now that Minnesota finally has another crack at the No. 1 pick, it’s worth going back and looking at what the historical hit rate of the top selection has been. While there are several notable busts, having the No. 1 selection has obviously been advantageous.

Let’s start with the players who came nowhere near matching expectations.

Little was a star running back during his college and NFL days, earning three All-America selections while at Syracuse University and retiring as the NFL’s seventh-leading rusher in 1975. He was also a five-time Pro Bowler.

Minnesota Timberwolves star Cheap Karl-Anthony Towns Jersey on Friday said that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

The diagnosis is especially hard for Towns, whose mother, Jacqueline Cruz-Towns, died at 59 on April 13 from complications of COVID-19. She had dealt with the virus for a month.

Towns said before the season that six other family members have also died from complications of the virus.


Towns: ‘Hardened, humbled’ after COVID deaths
“Prior to tonight’s game, I received yet another awful call that I tested positive for COVID,” Towns said in a statement shared on social media. “I will immediately isolate and follow every protocol. I pray every day that this nightmare of a virus will subside and I beg everyone to continue to take it seriously by taking all the necessary precautions. …

“It breaks my heart that my family, and particularly my father and sister continue to suffer from the anxiety that comes along with this diagnosis as we know all too well what the end result could be. To my niece and nephew … I promise you I will not end up in a box next to grandma and I will beat this.”

Minnesota announced earlier that its Friday night game against the Memphis Grizzlies had been postponed because of contact tracing in the Timberwolves’ organization.

Gersson Rosas, the team’s president of basketball operations, said during a news conference Friday that the organization has had two positive tests — including Towns — over the past two days and that one player is in the league’s contact tracing protocols.

Cheap Ricky Rubio Jersey and Juancho Hernangomez were listed as out on Thursday’s injury report for health and safety protocols.

“It’s heartbreaking,” Rosas said of Towns’ diagnosis. “It’s a lesson for all of us. Basketball is a microcosm of society right now and you can do the right things — our protocol has been strong. Our staff has done an unbelievable job of making sure we test, we mask, we follow protocol. But this virus is powerful and its creative.

“… Karl is the most important part of this organization,” Rosas added. “What he’s gone through, what Karl Sr. has gone through — it couldn’t be more heartbreaking.”

Towns, 25, missed six games this season with a wrist injury but returned to the court last week. He’s averaging 22 points, 12.5 rebounds and 4.3 assists in four games.

For 14 years, Al Jefferson put his body on the line as one of the NBA’s top big men. Originally drafted by the Boston Celtics, he suited up for five NBA franchises before taking his talents to China. Of course, taking a pounding in the paint left Jefferson’s body aching for a good night’s sleep. So for $23,000, he bought one.

A Mississippi native, Al Jefferson drew attention from the top college basketball programs in the country after averaging nearly 43 points and 18 rebounds as a senior at Prentiss High. However, the highly coveted recruit skipped out on college and took his talents straight to the NBA.

The Celtics selected Jefferson with the 15th overall pick in the 2004 NBA draft. He spent his first two years coming off the bench before becoming the team’s No. 1 center in 2006-07. Jefferson’s numbers exploded in his first year as a starter, as he averaged 16 points and 11 rebounds in 69 games. His breakout campaign caused his stock to skyrocket.

Danny Ainge traded the promising big man to the Minnesota Timberwolves in a huge package that brought back Cheap Kevin Garnett Jersey. For Jefferson, the move led to an even more prominent role. He averaged 20.1 points per game in three years with the Timberwolves.

Jefferson then spent three years with the Utah Jazz, where he continued to put up terrific numbers as a scorer and rebounder. Yet another three-year stint followed. This time, the aging center suited up for Charlotte. But after watching his numbers decline for years, Al Jefferson’s NBA career ended after a disappointing 2017-18 season with the Indiana Pacers.

Though he never became a true superstar, Al Jefferson certainly managed to do well for himself from a financial standpoint. Despite never earning a single NBA All-Star selection, the double-double machine made just north of $133 million in his 14-year NBA career.

Jefferson certainly had to work hard to score lucrative paydays. He made less than $1.7 million in each of his three seasons with the Celtics. In fact, it took until his fifth season for him to truly break the bank. After getting traded to the Timberwolves, Jefferson inked a five-year, $65 million contract extension.

Though he left money on the table and wanted to prove himself, that turned out to be a bad decision in hindsight. In his second season with the Timberwolves, the rising star suffered a torn ACL. The injury particularly stung because Jefferson had been in the midst of the most productive season of his career.

Ultimately, he made his way back and still managed to do well for himself over the next few years. Jefferson’s highest single-season salary came in 2012-13 when the Jazz paid him $15 million. Even though he made just $4 million in his final NBA season, the former high-school prodigy earned more than enough money to afford anything he wanted.

And as it turns out, Al Jefferson really wanted a good night’s sleep.

Some athletes choose to spend their hard-earned money more wisely than others. Former New York Knicks bust Eddie Curry spent nearly $1,100 per month on cable. Former NFL star Andre Rison blew $1 million just on jewelry. For Cheap Al Jefferson Jersey, though, he bought himself something much more practical: a bed.

Only the price would check in at a level most people would find less than practical. According to Salty City Hoops, Jefferson purchased a 10-foot by 12-foot bed set in 2012 while he played for the Jazz for the cool price of $23,287.

Former teammate Mo Williams posted a picture of the bed on social media. Later, the 6-foot-1, 198-pound point guard snapped a picture of himself on Jefferson’s $23,0000 bed to illustrate the enormity of the mattress.

While both the price and size of the bed seem insane, keep the purchase in context. When you tip the scales at 6-foot-10, 289 pounds, and have made more money than you can ever dream of, spending $23,000 on a good night’s sleep seems like a bargain.
