Today's Date in NBA History

(Boulder-CO) Today's date is June 29th, and on this day:
'82- The Boston Celtics honored paralyzed Indiana University star Landon Turner by drafting him in the 10th round of the NBA Draft. Turner, a starter on the 1981 Indiana University team that captured the NCAA Championship, was paralyzed in a car accident prior to his senior year in college.

'94- Milwaukee selected Purdue forward Glenn Robinson with the first pick in the 1994 NBA Draft, before a crowd of 19,833 at the Hoosier-Dome in Indianapolis. Dallas took California point guard Jason Kidd with the second pick, and Detroit tabbed Duke swingman Grant Hill with the third pick.
Enjoy your day!

Big Dog became the poster child over the next decasde for draft picks with a flair for scoring and no defense. Still put in 20 PPG
