Today, Nov. 19, is Patrick Kane’s 26th birthday. So, first off, congrats & happy birthday to #88 on the big day.
With that being said, I got in a discussion recently about Kane being the best #1 overall pick in Chicago sports history. We haven’t had many top picks in baseball, football, hockey and basketball in this town; the third overall pick has been our lucky number (Jordan, Savard, Toews).
Is Kaner the best player ever selected first overall by a Chicago team? Let’s look at the others who held that distinction in this town.
