um Manu Ginobilli, 2nd round 57th Overall. He got drafted in 1999, but he came over in 2002. But if Manu counts it has to be Manu. He is the biggest draft steal in the history of the NBA.

but if Manu doesnt count, I would pick either Gilbert Arenas 2nd round 31 Overall or Carlos Boozer 2nd round 35th Overall.

How ironic...they just mentioned the Manu steal on NBA TV.

Marc Gasol was drafted at 48 in the 2nd round.

STEAL.

When you compare the two scenarios is he better than Gilbert according to when he was drafted?

David Lee 30th overall and Luis Scola at 56th were good.

Kind of tough to tell simply because of the injuries Arenas has been going through and all the off court drama he brings.

Not to mention Arenas has had a longer career meanwhile Marc is just about to enter his 3rd year, in which he's already very underrated among the average basketball fan.

Marc is more shooting efficient than Arenas though, rebounds and blocks at a higher rate as well [due to the fact that he's a big].. But if I had to choose someone right now, I'll definitely go with Marc 10/10 times.

Ben Wallace and Udonis Haslem went undrafted. Ben Wallace is a 4 time DPOY.

i think he meant since 2000. Ben Wallace played for the wizards in 96-97. I would go with Manu

If Ben Wallace was undrafted, then he doesn't fit the criteria... I'm just saying...

that is ironic, because I already knew about Manu being the biggest steal of all time. I think ive mentioned it once or twice on here before, you can check me on that.

Of all time this^^^^

Blazer fans who were alive and fans back then have to look at themselves everyday in the mirror and say "we could have drafted Michael Jeffery FREAKIN Jordan".

Hell even Rockets fans can do the same. They got two titles with Akeem Olajuwon (when Michael took a break, lol), but they'd easily give it up for the Michael Dynasty of the 90's.

Ya imagine if the Blazers had taken Michael instead of Bowie... Drexler and MJ together on one team? Can you imagine? Basically two of the three most explosive athletes of their generation (Dominique would be the third of course), both of whom were so ridiculously well-rounded in terms of basketball skills... it'd be like LeBron and Wade together lol.
