Best and Worst NBA Lottery Picks

Best No. 5 Pick: 1987 Sonics, Scottie Pippen

It's often said that Pippen would not have won six NBA titles without Michael Jordan, but the reverse is equally true. Jordan reportedly wanted the Bulls to take UNC star Joe Wolf with the eighth pick of the '87 draft. Instead, they chose Olden Polynice and dealt him to Seattle for the rights to Pippen, who ended up making seven All-Star teams with Chicago as a do-it-all complement to MJ. An eight-time member of the All-NBA defensive first team, Pippen was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2010.
