All Day Throwbackz: 1996 Déjà Vu?

Shareef Abdur-Rahim averaged 18.1 ppg and 7.5 rpg during a 12-year NBA career (1996-2008)

You can't make stuff like this up.

Jaylen Brown is a top prospect in the 2016 NBA Draft and declared after a standout freshman year for the University of California Golden Bears.  Brown was a McDonald's All-American playing prep ball at Joseph Wheeler in Marietta, Ga.

The No. 3 pick of the 1996 NBA Draft was Shareef Abdur-Rahim; who left Cal after his freshman year after receiving all-Pac 10 honors.  Abdur-Rahim attended Joseph-Wheeler in Marietta, Ga. and was a McD's A-A.

So if the Boston Celtics take Brown at No. 3 it would mark 20 years since this exact scenario occurred.
