SAN ANTONIO SPURS
Best Value: Tim Duncan, No. 1, 1997. Duncan has been nothing less than one of the best No. 1 draft choices in any sport. Of course, the Spurs were able to build around him by adding Manu Ginobili late in the second round in 1999 and Tony Parker late in the first in 2001.
Worst Value: Alfredrick Hughes, No. 14, 1985. Hughes played only one season in the NBA, averaging 5.2 points per game.
Best Value: Chris Bosh, No. 4, 2003. Bosh, Toronto's career leader in scoring and rebounding, gets the nod for a franchise that has won only one playoff series.
Worst Value: Aleksandar Radojevic, No. 12, 1999. The 7-foot-3 Radojevic played all of three games for the Raptors. He was limited by back problems, and they traded him to Denver in 2001.
Best Value: John Stockton, No. 16, 1984, and Karl Malone, No. 13, 1985. These two seemed joined at the hip during their playing days, so why not keep them together? What Utah pulled off with a pair of mid-first round picks was remarkable.
Worst Value: Kris Humphries, No. 14, 2004. Picked before Al Jefferson and Josh Smith, Humphries played a couple nondescript seasons in Utah before the Jazz traded him to Toronto for Rafael Araujo — another first-round pick who hadn't panned out. Humphries has produced more for the Nets in recent years, but that doesn't do Utah much good.
