The Top 5 Lottery Era Drafts

With the 2009 draft only hours away, I thought, "What better way to celebrate the best part of the NBA Off-Season then with a list!?"

My first idea was to do my top ten players for this draft. Then I remembered that 11,000 people beat me to the idea.

I considered doing my bust of the draft. Then I remember I already did my article on Blake Griffin. Sorry Clippers fans. You are unable to make the best pick in the draft. Dunleavy is completely against winning.

I was two clicks away from a "50 best draft steals ever" until I remembered Jon Sally and The Best Damn Sports Show already have a monopoly on crappy 50s lists.

Doing a best draft ever would have been pointless; seeing as how the 1984 draft joins Zelda: Ocarina of Time and the number three pick from the 1984 draft as the topper of any and all "greatest of all time" lists.

Then it hit me: The best draft of the now famous or infamous—hello rigged 1985 draft—Lottery Era.

Ladies and Gentlemen, hold on to your New Era fitted caps!
