Best and Worst NBA Lottery Picks

12 of 30

Best No. 9 Pick: 1999 Bucks, Dirk Nowitzki

Milwaukee quickly followed the best No. 9 pick with one of the worst trades in NBA history, sending the German teenager (and Pat Garrity) to the Mavericks for the sixth pick in the draft, Michigan's Robert "Tractor" Traylor. While Traylor battled weight problems and was out of the league by 2005, Nowitzki has been a 10-time All-Star, the 2007 MVP and now the 2011 Finals MVP after leading Dallas past the Miami Heat for his first title.
