Manu Ginobili at the 57th

Manu Ginobili at the 57th pick of the '99 Draft and Willis Reed at the first pick of the second round of the '64 draft(there were 9 teams picking back then, but still...)

Ginobli is one of the

Ginobli is one of the biggest steals hands down. U also gotta put Arenas up there, Willis Reed, Stockton going 16th in the draft is a huge steal if u ask me. Probably the biggest for me just cause i can't really think of all the drafts right now

stockton wasnt that amazing

stockton wasnt that amazing coming out of college and didnt have an impact in his first few years in the League so its understandable why he went that low

Tony Parker picked 30th in

Tony Parker picked 30th in one of the worst drafts in recent memory. Only Gasol you could argue has had a better career, but a Finals MVP and three championships speak for themselves. Picked after the aforementioned Wallace and plethora of underachievers, busts, and solid players. I cant believe I'm the first to mention him.

I'm pretty sure John Starks

I'm pretty sure John Starks went undrafted. He went from bagging goceries(seriously) to playing in the all-star game. Ben Wallace was undrafted as well. Manu went late. Van Exel, Arenas, and boozer were all second rounders. Lakers got Kobe for Vlade Divac straight up after he went 13th.

Sometimes Scouts get it Wrong

There are tons of guys u can say were steals..But looking at things now...I'll say Kobe going 13 then getting traded for Divac a career backup..Karl Malone also getting drafted at 13 .Scouts said he didn't have a post game..Then Gervin getting drafted number 40th ..Stockton became the league leader in assists & steals..If scouts had known he was going to be that great he would've went in the top 10..Willis Reed went in the 2nd round..So Kobe,Malone, Reed, Stockton & Gervin were overlooked coming into the league...They are in the top 50 of all time

2003 Wade, Melo, Bosh could've been picked where Milicic was so its kinda good. Arenas & Chalmers look good too.

Steals

I consider Vlade Divac a steal because he was drafted 26th in a draft that included Danny Ferry, Pervis Ellison, Stacey King and John Morton in 1989... Vlade had a better career than these guys...

Anthony Morrow... No more explanation for the teams who snubbed him... The guy can flat out shoot and score...
