Here's what went down in the Semifinals of the NBA Draft, Wacky Bracket.


No. 1 vs. No. 2
No. 1:

Top 13 Slots
The qualitatively ranked
Top 13 slots are ...

1, 5, 2, 9, 13, 3, 10, 4, 11, 7, 8, 6, 12
Best 3 (Shaquille O'Neal, Tim Duncan, Allen Iverson)
Worst 3 (Kwame Brown, Pervis Ellison, Joe Smith)

No. 2:
Best 3 (Gary Payton, Jason Kidd, Steve Francis)
Worst 3 (Danny Ferry, Stromile Swift, Shawn Bradley)

The Final Pick: No. 1
Let's put it this way: No. 1 better win, considering the overwhelming advantage of having the choice of any player, while all the other slots have to deal with at least one leftover.
