the biggest sleeper in nba history
I thought he was lottery when he was in college. He slipped to the 2nd round. Don't remember where, but I thought it was mid second round too.
Yea Gilbert Arenas was who I thought of as well.
Michael Redd. 2nd round in the 2000 draft which wasn't a very good draft.
Gilbert has been injured too much and Michael hasn't.
what about mark price he was a 2 round draft pick
Luis Scola he was like 3rd last pick in the draft
I think Manu was the last pic in that draft
True, Manu and Scola, two gems that the Spurs drafted. That's what they do best. Good for us we got Scola. Bad for them.
Ginobili the &$#%#&@! beast he's gonna get his jersey retired by the spurs
He's been a key factor to the Spurs three championships, and he's also won an NBA Finals MVP award. Pretty good for a 28th draft pick who was a virtual unknown. Who knew France would be able to produce one of the top PG's in the league.
but I wasn't completely sure if he was a second round pick which is where Sleepers are usually found. I was too lazy to go check too...lol
nick van exel
He always seemed to play with a chip on his shoulder. I wish he didn't wear his welcome out in as a Laker though, he had himself a solid career. Always got a kick with his "extended" free throw shooting LOL
Ben Wallace- 3 time defensive player of the year and he went undrafted
had four to go along with multiple All-Star Games as well as some rebounding titles and a that glorious Championship Ring.
Ginobli by far!
also Tony parker didnt get drafted til late first round pick 28
micheal redd yea but he is like a poor man;s version of what KG was in Minnesota
negative pointed me is retarded!
its the truth!
it's a toss up between ben wallace and manu ginobili.
The funny thing is, more then half the posts listed spurs players, and this year, they got ANOTHER gem in the mid second round....wow, I hate them, but they sure can draft
Ben Wallace (he had a DOMINANT 5 year stretch defensively).....
I'm not saying these guys are the biggest sleepers, but here are my favorite players to have gone undrafted.
Ben Wallace - Went undrafted in 1996, but has appeared in 4 NBA All-Star games, been on the NBA All-Defensive Team six times, been named Defensive Player of the Year four times, and won a championship with the Detroit Pistons in 2004.
Earl Boykins - Undrafted in 1998
Bruce Bowen - Went undrafted in 1993, but has three NBA Championships with the San Antonio Spurs and has been named to the NBA All-Defensive Team eight times. He also played in 500 consecutive games and has been runner up for the NBA Defensive Player of the Year Award three times.
Brad Miller - Undrafted in 1998
Udonis Haslem - Undrafted in 2002
Andrés Nocioni - Undrafted in 2004
what happened to Earl Boykins? I used to love watching him on the court, always looked like a little 5 year old
I HAVE TO SAY SCOTTIE PIPPEN..IS THE BIGGEST SLEEPER..NO!! I TAKE THAT BACK!! HIS TEAMMATE MICHEAL JORDAN IS THE BIGGEST SLEEPER EVER!!! I REMEMBER DURING THE 1984 DRAFT..CHICAGO MEDIA , THE COACHES, THE ENTIRE BULLS ORGANIZATION WAS DISAPPOINTED THAT THEY DIDN'T GET (ARE U READY FOR THIS? )SAM BOWIE!!!! YES THEY WANTED BOWIE...CHICAGO TRIBUNE HAD A HEADLINE THAT READ'''' STUCK WITH JORDAN'''''IF Y'ALL DON'T BELIEVE ME..LOOK IT UP
