Year after year, the National Basketball Association sets a date for its Draft and it has finally arrived. This June 23, hundreds of prospects are trying to land in any team of the NBA, but it is not an easy task. This is the day were dreams do come true and some stories of underdogs begin in the big leagues.

The 2022 NBA Draft order was set after the lottery and the five top-picks are willing to add the best baller from college, but not everyone can be a superstar. It is an actual coin toss, but recruiters all around the country do their jobs in order to get the best reviews for the front offices, coaches and teams.

For now on, the players transform from amateurs to professionals and begin their careers through the NBA. This year, the most attractive names were Jabari Smith, Paolo Banchero and Chet Holmgren, but there were also some heirs that will try to keep up to their father's legacy such as Scotty Pippen Jr., Ron Harper Jr., AJ Griffin and Shareef O'Neal.
