One of the most important moments and breaking factor for every NBA Franchise is the NBA Draft. You can become the best GM ever if you select or trade on Draft night, just like Jerry West did with Kobe Bryant... but on the other hand, you can trade for some great players like Kawhi Leonard, Ray Allen or Dirk Nowitzki or miss out on players like Stephen Curry, Steve Nash, Manu Ginobili and Dennis Rodman.
