Since the 2-round system began, either Manu at 57th or Ben Wallace undrafted.

1984 NBA Draft -- 3rd overall, Michael Jordan.
1996 NBA Draft -- 13th overall, Kobe Bryant.

Easily the biggest draft steals in NBA history.

I think Tony Parker was picked in the 2nd round so I will go with him if he was.

How can an undrafted player be a steal in the draft? :rolleyes:

Parker was a late first rounder, 27th overall I believe.

These are some of the guys that come to mind: Manu Ginobli, Gilbert Arenas, Michael Redd, Carlos Boozer, Rashard Lewis and Ben Wallace

These are some of the newer guys who may join this list in the future (all potential allstars IMO): Mo Williams, Trevor Ariza, Monte Ellis, Paul Millsap and Marc Gasol

This is the absolute truth...
With the edge going to Kobe over MJ...
Kobe for Vlade Divac..

Mark Eaton round 5 (72nd overall) 1982
Dennis Rodman round 2 (27th overall) 1986
Jeff Hornacek round 2 (46th overall) 1986
Michael Jackson (lawl) round 2 (47th overall) 1986
Ben Wallace (undrafted) 1996
Stephen Jackson round 2 (43rd overall) 1997
Rashard Lewis round 2 (32nd overall) 1998
MIKE JAMES! (undrafted) 1998
Manu Ginobili round 2 (57th overall) 1999
Chris Andersen (undrafted) 1999
Raja Bell (undrafted) 1999
Michael Redd round 2 (43rd overall) 2000
Eddie House round 2 (37th overall) 2000
Gilbert Arenas round 2 (31st overall) 2001

Glen Davis round 2 (35th overall) 2007
Marc Gasol round 2 (48th overall) 2007
DeJuan Blair* round 2 (37th overall) 2009

*08 and 09 round 2 draft picks are still unproven but I'm pretty sure Blair will be a steal.

Dude, we almost made a mistake in taking Penny Hardaway, Nick Van Exel, Mashburn, Sam Cassell, George Lynch, or even Gheorge Mureson or however the hell you spell it...


Instead, I had years of entertainment as people made Bradleys head an extension of the rim as they dunked the ball through his neck and into his stomach... What a ****ing loser he was...

Well at three he was a good value pick. I'm just glad they didn't go with that one Christ Paul guy or the one from Illinois who turned out to be busts.

No one wants Christ Paul.

Wow...I can't believe that people are putting Kobe and Jordan as steals while going in the lottery. I mean, Olajuwon was a GREAT pick at one, and only Bowie was a flop.
Kobe was a great steal, but it can't be one of HISTORY'S BEST when he's in such an amazing draft class and still goes early.
I know it's been said before, but I like Manu for current players.
Alex English was drafted in the second round, 1976
Bill Laimbeer was drafted in the third round, 1982
Mo Cheeks was drafted in the second round, 1978
George Gervin was drafted in the third round, 1974

Don't get me wrong, Kobe and MJ were stolen, but I don't see how picking them in the lottery consists of an all-time steal.

Kobe's became a steal later on, but he wasn't a real superstar for about 4 years. It's not like he came in as a star.

I agree with MJ, but Kobe ain't no steal......everytime Kobe has won anything, you can sub him for another star in league and the team will still win. Kobe is overrated in the sense that he needs really good players to win a thing. Give Kobe the Heat team in 2006, and Dallas wins easilly.

IndiansFan337
09-05-2009, 05:02 PM
Manu Ginobili. He has been a leader (or 2nd option) on championship winning teams.

Guys like Ellis, Redd, etc. that put up good numbers on bad teams don't do it for me.

When MICHAEL JORDAN (Greatest of All-Time) goes anything under 1st overall, its a steal. He changed the whole game inside and out. For him to go 3rd overall is an absolute steal. Led to six championships and DEF more if that guy aint go to baseball lmao!

Manu Ginobli at 57th overall is the best steal if you basing it on 2nd rounders. Seriously, he was one player away from being undrafted lol.
