Ranking the number 1 picks since 1985

I decided to rank the top picks in each of the last 24 drafts. Some of the newer guys like LeBron and D Howard may climb up the list once they get some championships and more seasons under their belt.
1. Shaquille O'neal-1992
2. Tim Duncan-1997
3. David Robinson-1987
4. Patrick Ewing-1985
5. Allen Iverson-1996
6. LeBron James-2003
7. Dwight Howard-2004
8. Yao-2002
9. Chris Webber-1993
10. Elton Brand-1999
11. Brad Daugherty- 1986
12. Larry Johnson-1991
13. Derrick Rose-2008
14. Glenn Robinson-1994
15. Andrew Bogut-2005
16. Kenyon Martin-2000
17. Greg Oden-2007
18. Danny Manning-1988
19. Andrea Bargnani-2006
20. Derrick Coleman-1990
21. Pervis Ellison-1989
22. Joe Smith-1995
23. Kwame Brown-2001
24. Michael Olowakandi-1998
Obviously I feel LeBron has the potential to be number 1 on this list and Derrick Rose can also climb high up this list as well. My question for you is where do you think Blake Griffin will rank among these names. At best I think he can end up between Webber and Brand. Lets just hope he isn't anywhere near the Clippers last top pick- the Kandi man.

At this point I'm putting Joe Smith ahead of Greg Oden. Dudes got Sam Bowie syndrome.

Great post. I agree w/ your

Great post. I agree w/ your rankings +/- a few players. I could see Griffin making this list in between Brand & Daugherty.
