But after that first drive Swift …. Instead of the traditional list of the best NBA players to once don the Orange, I decided to take a look at the value of some picks.
Keep in mind, there will be some overlap between the two. I took a number of factors into account. First is their career as a whole and the legacy they left on the pro game and how long they did it for. Next was their draft slot. Where were they picked and who were they taken before or after?
After leading the Orange to its lone national championship, the Nuggets received a gift when Anthony dropped to three. There is a possibility that this pick could have never happened. Maybe there would be multiple championship banners hanging in the Carrier Dome.
Regardless, Melo will probably go down as the second best player behind LeBron James from arguably the most talented draft of all time. However, his legacy as a winner is probably closer to fifth than first.
Regardless, Anthony is one of the best pure scorers of this generation and the Pistons are still kicking themselves 15 years later for passing on him to take Darko Milicic. Nearly 40 years earlier from its botch, the Pistons did cash in on an SU guy at number two.
Bing was one of the most prolific scorers in the league throughout his career and was the highest scoring player in the Draft. While Bing also had an interesting career outside of basketball as a businessman and mayor of Detroit, he was named a top 50 player of all-time.
Coleman was a force in the league right from the get-go after he won Rookie of the Year, followed up by a pair of All-NBA nods and an All-Star appearance. That belongs to Hall of Famer Gary Payton.
