Granted, it's been more bust than boom, as evidenced by the NBA Draft Lottery selections of Patrick O'Bryant, Ike Diogu, Ekpe Udoh or the reaches for Marco Belinelli and Mike Dunleavy.
However, the recent history has reflected well on the team's current success but we'd have to look further past to figure out which were the best draft picks in Warriors' history.
In order to do that, there are several factors we must take into account, including players' pedigree as a Warrior, where they were drafted and what they accomplished as an NBA player.
The Warriors technically drafted Vince Carter, but traded him to the Toronto Raptors so he isn't included. They also picked up steals in Monta Ellis and Gilbert Arenas, but I had to leave them off because of their lack of success on the Warriors.
