Amare and Marion were both top 10 picks and Nash wasn't good? He was playing behind Jason Kidd, Sam Cassell and Kevin Johnson his first two years in Phoenix. It's no coincedence that after he went to Dallas and was given more minutes, he showed what he could do.
amare was 9th, don't know about marion - that's pretty late for players of their calibre. Nash was 13th if I remember.
With basically mid to late lottery picks he got a bunch of existing and (hopefully) all stars. Finding a gem by luck is not that hard, but getting multiple ones must equate to some kind of skill.
