Surprisingly, the No. 3 pick has included far more draft disasters than future All-Stars since the Bulls took Michael Jordan at this spot in 1984, the year before the lottery went into effect. Chauncey Billups (1997) and Deron Williams (2005) were excellent choices, but Gasol gets the nod for the impact he made on the Lakers following his arrival by trade in 2008. LA reached the Finals three straight years, winning the title in 2009 and 2010, thanks largely to the 7-1 Spaniard, the most skilled big man in the league.
