NBA Draft
 < 1964 1966 > 

The 1965 NBA Draft was the 19th annual draft of the National Basketball Association (NBA). The draft was held on May 6, 1965 before the 1965–66 season. In this draft, nine NBA teams took turns selecting amateur U.S. college basketball players. Teams that finished last in each division, the San Francisco Warriors and the New York Knicks were awarded the first four picks in the draft. The remaining first-round picks and the subsequent rounds were assigned to teams in reverse order of their win–loss record in the previous season. The draft consisted of 17 rounds comprising 112 players selected. This draft was the last before the territorial pick rule remained in effect, before being eliminated prior to the 1966 draft.[1]

Fred Hetzel from Davidson College was selected first overall by the San Francisco Warriors. Rick Barry from the University of Miami was drafted second by the Warriors and went on to win the Rookie of the Year Award in his first season.[2] Bill Bradley, Bill Buntin and Gail Goodrich were selected before the draft as New York Knicks', Detroit Pistons' and Los Angeles Lakers' territorial picks respectively. Four players from this draft, Barry, Bradley, Goodrich and fifth pick Billy Cunningham, have been inducted to the Basketball Hall of Fame.[3] Barry and Cunningham were also named to the 50 Greatest Players in NBA History list announced at the league's 50th anniversary in 1996.[4] Barry's achievements includes one NBA championship with the Warriors in 1975, one Finals MVP, five All-NBA Team selections and four All-Star Game selections.[5] Cunningham's achievements includes one NBA championship with the Philadelphia 76ers in 1967, four All-NBA Team selections and four All-Star Game selections. He later became a head coach and won another NBA Championship in 1983, also with the Sixers.[6] Goodrich's achievements includes one NBA championship with the Los Angeles Lakers in 1972, one All-NBA Team selection and five All-Star Game selections.[7] Bradley won the NBA championships twice with the Knicks in 1970 and 1973 and was also selected to one All-Star Game.[8] Fourth round pick Bob Love have been selected to both All-NBA Team and All-Star Game.[9] Fourth pick Jerry Sloan and four other players, including third round pick Jon McGlocklin, are the only other players from this draft who have been selected to an All-Star Game.

Jerry Sloan played 11 seasons before became a coach. He later coached the Chicago Bulls for three seasons before fired during the 1981–82 season. He then became the head coach of the Utah Jazz in 1988, the position he has held since.[10] He has been inducted to the Basketball Hall of Fame as a coach.[3] Twin brothers Dick and Tom Van Arsdale, who were drafted in the second round, became the first set of twins to play in the NBA.[11][12] 12th pick Tal Brody never played in the NBA. He joined Israeli club Maccabi Tel Aviv in 1966 and played there until his retirement in 1980, winning several Israeli league titles and an European Cup Championship in 1977. He also became an Israeli citizen and played for Israeli national team.[13][14] Hall of Famer Bill Bradley became a successful politician after retiring from basketball. He was elected as a Democrat to the United States Senate for 18 years. He was also a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2000, losing to incumbent Vice President Al Gore in the presidential primaries.[15]
