NBA draft
1989 1991 >

The 1990 NBA draft took place on June 27, 1990, in New York City, New York. One of the standouts of this draft is perennial All-Star, Gary Payton.[1][2] He became a nine-time All-Star, achieved the NBA Defensive Player of the Year award in 1996, won an NBA Championship with the Miami Heat in 2006 and holds many statistical records during his tenure with the now defunct Seattle SuperSonics.

The player projected to be the top pick by many media outlets and draft analysts was Loyola Marymount's Hank Gathers, who died of a heart condition in March 1990 during a game. Syracuse's Derrick Coleman was instead chosen as the top pick by the New Jersey Nets.
