It was a hard choice to make. The 1984 draft had four players who are in the top 20 of all time. But it had nothing more than that.
The 1996 draft was filled with legends, record breakers, All-Stars, and more.
Allen Iverson was the first pick. One of the best little men to ever play the game, an 11-time All Star, 2001 MVP and four-time scoring champion. His legendary crossover has embarrassed so many players. People don't give this guy as much credit as they should.
At the 13th pick was Kobe Bryant, straight out of high school. Here we go... five-time NBA champion, two-time Finals MVP, one-time league MVP, 13-time All-Star, two-time scoring champ, nine-time All NBA first team, nine-time All Defensive first team, four-time All-Star game MVP, one of the most clutch players of all time. And, oh yeah, there was that 81-point game.
With these two greats came Steve Nash, a two-time MVP, seven-time All-Star, simply one of the best pint guards ever.
Also included was Ray Allen and Peja Stojakovic, two of the best three-point shooters ever. Defensive killer Marcus Camby, dominant big man Jermain O'Neal, Antoine Walker, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Stephon Marbury, and Shareef Abdure Rahim all help make the greatest NBA Draft class of all time.
