Michael Carter-Williams fell to No. 11 to the Philadelphia 76ers in the NBA draft and has been a star through the first week of the regular season in leading the team to a 3-0 record.

"Every game I try to prove that I could've been the No. 1 pick," Carter-Williams said. "I have confidence in myself that I should've been."

Carter-Williams did not expect the 76ers to be a doormat as many projected, but he did not expect their current start.

"I'm definitely surprised," Carter-Williams said. "I knew we'd be OK. Not as bad as people were saying, but not like this."
