Boozer or Manu. Monta is the worst player on that list^^^ But for some reason you think he's the GOAT.

Manu for sure. He's a beast.
Redd and Arenas had the chance to be winners but both were too selfish to lead a team properly

you are wrong. 1. Monta is not the worst on the list. 2. I don't think Monta is the GOAT. It will always be Wilt Chamberlain

Where would you rank Monta out of the current NBA players?

Manu. After Robinson left, it would`ve been rly hard for Timmy to do it without Manu and Parker.

Point well made...but it's hard to imagine Redd and Arenas deferring to Timmy with the game on the line....

thats because they were the best players on their respective teams for most of their careers. manu has a lower ego, but talent wise, the other 2 guys are better players. the success a player has is always related to the team he played on and ginobili on either the wizards or bucks will make his career look as bad/worse.

Manu and it's not close.

The fact that he was drafted 57th overall as well makes it even more incredible.

Also, Rashard was drafted in 1998, so he doesn't fit into the same decade.

Arenas maybe, hes a better scorer but thats about it. Redd isnt a better talent then Manu though.

Manu is easily the best player on that list but he was drafted in 99.

If the Spurs blew the Manu pick who knows, I'm not sure if Duncan has 4 rings.

I'd say boozer, obviously tougher to find a big man, and he's the only big man on this list, could end up being david lee if he can turn the warriors around with steph curry and keep up his great #'s.

Agreed. Definately wouldnt have beaten Detroit without him..I love TD but Manu should have been finals MVP IMO

Two recent NY picks should be on this list. David Lee (30th pick) & Trevor Ariza (43rd pick) should be on this list.

Sorry about the mistakes guys i never knew Manu and Rashard were drafted in the late 90s, and David Lee definitely should've been added. I don't think Ariza should be on the list though because he wouldn't get much votes and hasn't done much individually.

Also, why does Manu get so much more love than Parker? Parker is just as valuable to the Spurs as Manu, and has pretty similar stats to him along with a finals MVP.

hands down ginobli he was nearly the last pick and hes had a huge impact in the nba since his rookie year

Monta Ellis.

you never pick anyone else if Monta's name is up there (or NOT) even that's not even close to be relevant :facepalm:

apparently Ginobili but why is Rondo not getting any consideration as the 21st pick in 2005??

I am surprised to see the vote difference between Parker and Manu. I don't think Parker has been less valuable than Manu for the spurs dynasty, if not more (final's mvp) they have had equal contributions.

manu. he was the 57th pick of the 1999 nba draft. the 57th. i rest my case

I'm surprised David Lee didn't make the list. But my vote regardless would go to Manu

Manu, by far, to go as low as he did and the impact that he has had in the NBA by playing an important role on a team with 3 rings.

Manu is a much more complete player than Parker. Much better defense, smarter and more efficient offensive player, better playoff performer. I can only think of 4 other SG's in the NBA who have the all-around game he does.

I know he isnt on the list but Ben Wallace wasnt even drafted, then went on to win defensive player of the year 4 times, 4 time all star, and a championship. Not too bad

Manu easily. He almost fell out of the draft and now, he's one of the top twos in the league.

they're both good players but they haven't been in the NBA long enough to make a big impact, or to be considered best low pick of the decade.

I wanted to go Ellis because I like him the most, but had to go with the underrated, underappreciated guy in Manu.
