By now, everyone's heard Manu Ginobili's story. David Stern called his name with the 57th pick of the 1999 NBA Draft, and no one in Madison Square Garden even noticed.
Ginobili's play over the past few seasons has propelled the San Antonio Spurs to a championship caliber team that people keep expecting to fall off. Thanks to Gregg Popovich's foresight in the second round, Ginobili has been a mainstay for Texas' most talented team.
Popovich, however, isn't the only late-pick genius. Every other team has made second round picks, and the talent level ranges from scrub to starter to star. While not all franchises have grabbed a Ginobili level, some have done just fine and others have done even better.
But which team made the best choice?
Note: Back in the day, the draft used to be much shorter due to less teams, so some studly players may have not actually fallen to what we today consider the second round.
