Players cheered on draft night that ended up sucking.

Much is made about players who were booed on draft night, that ended up being good players.
 
 
What are some examples of the reverse?

"They called my name and they cheered for me, and that made me feel real happy," said Sweetney, who will be the fifth power forward on New York's roster.

The crowd went nuts when the Knicks used the first pick of the second round on Polish center Maciej Lampe, who was considered a possible lottery pick in the days leading up to the draft.

Was there anyone that you thought a team picked, that in your opinion, was picked too early, but the fans seemed to cheer?

It's too early, but I do like SGA a lot. He's long, a good scorer, he looks patient and smooth, his perimeter defense is tits. He can be our next new home grown star. I know it's only SL but still.

He picked pockets a couple of times with those long arms.

It's not too early.  I liked him as soon as I saw pre-draft clips of him, and he's looked the same in summer league games.
