Exactly Last night at approximately 8:47 PM the Washington Wizards finally had a break go their way. When Adam Silver announced that the Detroit Pistons would be selecting 8th overall instead of the Wizards, a ton of excitement and and quite a bit of relief rushed over Wiz fans everywhere. It was exciting to move up in the top 3 of the draft, and a relief that Washington wouldn’t be selecting from the scraps of the lottery prospects come June 27th. Last night was the definition of a moral victory. And there is no better way to celebrate that moral victory than with a nice music video! The Wizards didn’t land the 1st overall selection, but I don’t think you’ll hear any fan complain about drafting 3rd. Not only does it give the Wizards a better chance to land a more quality talent, but increases the pick’s trade value if Grunfeld decides to wheel and deal. At this moment in time one thing is for certain: The Wizards own the 3rd, 37th, and the 54th picks in the 2013 draft. We all know EG’s track record on drafting, and hopefully by moving up to 3rd overall the foreign prospects can now be an afterthought! Let us know below who you want to see the Wiz Kids draft 3rd overall. And stay tuned as Blog So Hard will be going into tons more detail about possible draft selections for our beloved Wizards.     Related posts: Wizards Land 3rd Pick Which Players Should Be A Part of the Wizards Organization Moving Forward?
