Florida Basketball: Ranking the Gators' All-Time Best NBA Players

Because of Florida's recent success—two national championships and two additional Elite Eights since 2006—the typical basketball fan probably assumes the Gators have produced multitudes of NBA players.

That's not the case, though. According to Wikipedia, just 16 former Gators have played professionally in the NBA.

This is a list ranking the top 10 of those players.

Bradley Beal remains on the periphery, as this list inherently values experience, hence "All-Time." Just because Beal has had a solid first half to his rookie season, including him over players with more time in the NBA would not be fair.

Even so, Chandler Parsons, who himself has played just one-and-a-half years in the league, appears on the list. Everyone else, though, has played at least six seasons.

In certain situations, a player has the potential to improve his ranking as his career progresses. Al Horford, for example, is clearly a better player than Mike Miller, but Miller has been around for twice as long as Horford and consequentially ranks higher.
