and before toronto, he also drafted nash, marion and amare around ~10th - that's a hall of famer and two multiple all stars drafted very late in lottery.
I have to disagree with the Bargs assessment. I said it when he was drafted till the day he was booed out of town, I didn't feel he had the talent to go #1. It's easy to say Aldridge now, but I said it then and yes BC I has drafted well, but his stubbornness to let go of Bargs caused a lot of suffering (cue the dramatic music) and his need for a fix-it-all star has to be questioned. Although I didn't disagree with many of the moves at the time he made them.
