Jimmy Butler is easily going to win the 30th pick rank of all time, so moving on to number 29...

There's only one player on this list in the top 100 all-time.

There's only one player on this list in the top 100 all-time.

I can see the argument for Eddie Johnson too though

And guys like Brown, Kukoc and Newman all had very nice careers.

It's Dennis, if you don't vote Dennis, you don't know what you're doing here.

PJ Brown. He was solid big his whole career.

Tossing Charlie Ward was awesome to.

Edit: my bad Dennis Johnson. I never knew he was draft this low. Itís easily Dennis.

Blech.

Dennis is the answer, but this clearly illustrates the difficulty in comparing players from different generations.

DJ, but think DJM could be the answer in about 12 years or so.

I think Dejounte Murray will be the best on this list so if that's what we're going by, I'll go with Dejounte.

I think Dennis Johnson is super overrated and never should have made the Hall of fame tbh. I like Kukoc personally and he would be better suited for todays game

for a 4 year period, Josh Howard was the best player out of that entire group (from 05-09)

so for me do I go with resume (3 chips, 5 all stars and a HOF for DJ)

or do I go with who was best at their peak (Josh Howard)

im not sure. im leaning towards resume right now (DJ)
