2012 NBA Draft Results: Picks 1-10 Complete Recap

| by Alex Groberman

The 2012 NBA Draft kicked off with a bang. Aside from the New Orleans Hornets selecting Anthony Davis with their No. 1 overall pick, nothing really went as planned.

First, Michael Jordan’s Charlotte Bobcats threw everyone for a loop by selecting Michael Kidd-Gilchrist at No. 2. Then the Washington Wizards stayed on script by nabbing Bradley Beal at No. 3; however, right after that, the Cleveland Cavaliers took Dion Waiters with the No. 4 overall pick.

Harrison Barnes, some people’s consensus most overrated player in the top 10, went at No. 7 to the Golden State Warriors. The Toronto Raptors, after trying their damndest to move that No. 8 pick, eventually decided to reach for Terrence Ross.
