Abdur-Rahim. Kidd. Anderson. And tonight, Allen Crabbe will be the next among them, as the latest Cal player to go in the first round of the NBA draft. Crabbe was selected by the
Oklahoma City Thunder with the 26th pick Portland with the 31st pick, which is around - and maybe even a tad lower than - where he was projected to go, but it was a strong junior season that helped get him there, when he averaged 18.4 PPG and 6.1 RPG. A Pac-12 Player of the Year award didn't hurt, either.
