The poor kid is joining the Clippers. Enough said.
Winner -- Los Angeles Clippers
Not even the Clippers could have screwed this one up. Well, maybe if Elgin Baylor was still running things. But the Clips went with Blake Griffin (pictured) with the No. 1 overall pick -- the clear-cut elite player in the draft.
Loser -- Chase Budinger
The Arizona wing was, at one time in his career, thought to be a lottery pick. He wound up going 44th overall to Detroit in the second round.
Winner -- Rajon Rondo
He's still in Boston and has a chance to win another championship with All-Stars like Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Ray Allen around him. If he was shipped out and was forced to be The Guy, things would be different since he isn't capable of dominating without talent around him.
Loser -- Pittsburgh Panthers
Both Sam Young (right) and DeJuan Blair were thought to be first-round picks, but fell into the second round. Blair's knees and Young's size were concerns.
Winner -- Atlanta
The Hawks bolstered their backcourt big time, trading virtually nothing (Acie Law and Speedy Claxton) for Jamal Crawford and then getting a steal with explosive combo guard Jeff Teague (pictured) at No. 19.
Loser -- David Kahn
The brand-new Minnesota GM actually took the three purest point guards in the draft. He dealt one, Ty Lawson, immediately -- but still has Ricky Rubio (pictured) and Jonny Flynn, two guys who cannot play together.
Winner -- Russell Westbrook
The second-year Oklahoma City guard will remain at the point after the team went with shooting guard James Harden at No. 3 instead of floor leader Ricky Rubio.
Loser -- Stephen Curry
The poor kid really wanted to go to New York, but Golden State spoiled it by taking him one spot (No. 7) in front of New York. Now he'll never be heard from again out in the Bay.
Winner -- Brandon Jennings
After he spent a year in Italy, it appeared as though his stock was slipping. However, Jennings wound up going No. 10 overall to the Bucks.
Loser -- Chris Wallace
The Memphis general manager, according to sources, was overruled by owner Michael Heisley and coach Lionel Hollins -- who opted to go with 7-foot-3 Hasheem Thabeet (pictured) and stick with Mike Conley Jr. at the point.
Winner -- Philadelphia
The 76ers got their replacement for Andre Miller at the point with Jrue Holiday -- and they got the former UCLA guard, who never got the chance to run the team after Darren Collison came back, at No. 17 overall. Don't be shocked if Holiday turns out to be one of the top point guards from this draft.
Loser -- New York
The Knicks hope to have better luck with their latest Arizona big man, Jordan Hill (pictured), than Channing Frye. Hill is athletic but is also raw and a complete work in progress. Donnie Walsh could have -- and should have -- taken a more secure pick.
Winner -- Tyler Hansbrough
Hard work truly is rewarded as Psycho T went at No. 13 to the Pacers -- in front of semi-unproductive "potential" guys like Austin Daye, Jrue Holiday and B.J. Mullens. Hansbrough won't be a star in the NBA, but he'll be productive and will stay in the league for a long, long time.
