In one of the most highly anticipated draft lotteries in NBA history, the San Antonio Spurs went home with the grand prize.

San Antonio received the No. 1 overall selection in the 2023 NBA Draft Lottery, giving them the opportunity to select presumptive top pick Victor Wembanyama. The French phenom has dominated the talk surrounding the draft for months.

The Charlotte Hornets suffered significant heartbreak after falling a single pick short of the top spot. Still, they’ll pick second overall, followed by the Portland Trail Blazers at No. 3 and the Houston Rockets at No. 4. The biggest losers of the night were the Pistons, who fell all the way to the No. 5 spot despite posting the worst overall record this season. It was the worst possible outcome for them entering the night.

What do we know about the probable first pick of the 2023 NBA Draft?

Barring a monumental surprise, the 19-year-old Wembanyama is widely expected to be the No.1 pick, which sees the cream of basketball’s rookie talent up for grabs.

Wembanyama is now set to follow in the footsteps of French basketball legend Tony Parker, who won four NBA championships with San Antonio between 2003 and 2014. The young Frenchman who stands at a towering 7 feet and 4 inches at the age of 19 played for the Metropolitans 92 last night, and it seems only a matter of time until he is in the black and white of the Spurs.

The Spurs will be buoyed by history, as the last time they won the first pick of an NBA Draft was the night they drafted Tim Duncan in. Duncan went on to win five NBA titles with the Spurs and is arguably their best ever player, a path that Wembanyama will hope to follow in.
