Default Best Draft Class Ever?

NBA Draft Analysis -- Best Draft by Year

Was 1998 that good? I thought it was 96 and 03 that had the best and deepest draft. Thoughts? :chuck

*Draft Forum even better *

2003 wasn't as deep as many thought. After LBJ, Wade, Anthony, CBnone there wasn't much else.

Really depends how you define the "best" class. I don't necessarily agree with his uses of Superstar, Star, etc.

1984, 1996 and 2003 are all great. It's tough to choose one out of those 3.

Those 4 top players are one of the best out at their position of all time, if not the best. Only exception would be Stockton. I'd take this draft.

I thought John Wallace would get more laughs but I guess I could have included Othella Harrington

Which ever one Clyde Drexler came from.

nope... that's it, I don't need to hear any more Bowie or Oden crap.
Did you know the Blazers drafted "Clyde the Glide" with the 14th pick? Dumbass NBA back then.

Stockton & Nash are the best typical 6'3" point guards of all time IMO

Magic is not a typical point guard he is in a position all to his own.

That is the best draft class of all time no doubt about it!

Man I can't believe then that there was 10 rounds of picks?
