And the first pick in the 2017 NBA Draft goes to ... Not the Nets.

Instead, the Celtics, the team that scammed the Nets in the 2013 trade, won the overall No. 1 pick. The pick is the next to last payment in the trade that brought Paul Pierce, Kevin Garnett and Jason Terry to the Nets. Next year’s first round pick, also unprotected, goes to Boston.

To make matters worse, Pierce tweeted out his feelings.

The Lakers finished second and the 76ers third, part of a swap with the Kings. The Kings in fact may be the biggest winner other than the Celtics and Lakers, taking home the fifth and tenth pick.

Other teams with two picks in the draft include the Nets, Trail Blazers, Lakers, Magic and Jazz.
