NBA Draft 2012 Results: Anthony Davis, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist Highlight Top Five Picks

NEWARK - It seems like some way or another, history is always being made in the NBA. Thursday night was no exception, as for the first time in history, teammates were selected back-to-back with the first two picks of the NBA Draft. Anthony Davis and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, both from the Kentucky Wildcats, were the drafted No. 1 and No. 2 respectively, in the 2012 NBA Draft on Thursday at the Prudential Center.

Davis was the consensus No. 1 overall pick, and he was selected by the New Orleans Hornets. Kidd-Gilchrist, however, was not projected by most experts to go as high as he did in the draft. He was drafted by the Charlotte Bobcats. Below are the first five picks.
