There are many great GMs that had never gave up on a draft despite having lower lottery picks and second round picks. A great example of this are the San Antonio Spurs. In the 1999 draft they selected Manu Ginobili with the second pick of the 1999 draft and he made the all-NBA third team despite being a six.
In this draft class of 08 there are 6 players that stand out as being steals and also they performed well in the regular season with no-one recognizing them. Also, in this draft there are many steals to be named.
