As we are all aware, the Detroit Pistons made one of the worst picks of all time when they selected Darko Milicic with the No. 2 pick in the 2003 NBA Draft.
Well, according to Carmelo Anthony, who was the No. 3 overall pick, the Pistons promised him prior to and on the day of the draft that they were going to pick him.
Carmelo said that he still thinks about it to this day and that he believes the Pistons would have won back-to-back titles had they drafted him.
Take a listen to this! It sure does sound like Carmelo wishes he had been selected by the Pistons.
Carmelo Anthony says that the Pistons were promising to draft him up to and including on draft day 🤯
