Bill Simmons by kanyewesteros

Question 9

Bill Simmons prides himself on correctly predicting that a certain #2 overall NBA Draft pick would have a better career than the #1 overall pick that year, but would probably like to take back the same prediction as it applies to the draft three years earlier (both drafts took place between 2000 and 2009). Which #2 pick lived up to Simmons's prediction...and which one did not? (Looking for the #2 picks, not the #1 picks)

Kevin Durant (2007 - better than #1 Greg Oden), Emeka Okafor (2004 - not better than #1 Dwight Howard)
