NBA drafts through the years (1984-present)

Sorry. This post is forever in flux.

Started adding draft tables

Added videos on NBA Drafts 2009, 2010, 2011

I don't know about you, but I get a kick out of watching these drafts retrospectively, listening to the experts pontificate about how these players would fare in the pros, and me already knowing how their NBA careers turned out.

I've tried to scour YT for full videos of past NBA drafts starting 1984 and I think these are all that exist. I have placeholders for the years that I still don't have any videos. Also, for some years (e.g., 2010), I can only find snippets rather than the whole draft. If anyone can point out better videos, please let me know in the comments section.  

I will continue to add to this whenever I find more draft videos. Do let me know if I am missing any years that videos are actually available online so I can add to this post. Please post links on the comments section as well. 

I hope you enjoy this as much as I did! 

Here are some links to complete NBA Draft lists from various sites for cross-ref and further reading:
