Quote:
Throughout NBA history, the vast majority of elite talents have been drafted within the first 10 picks. Fall back much more than that—especially outside the lottery—and the chances of netting game-changing stars falls off rather dramatically.

Nevertheless, each first-round draft slot (1-30) has had at least one noteworthy player who can be deemed the best ever drafted at that position. The competition at No. 1 or No. 2 overall is obviously more cutthroat than in the late-20s, but each spot in the draft is represented with a commendable name.
