Picking the best player in each NBA draft over the last 20 years

2000: Jamal Crawford, 8th overall

The 2000 NBA Draft, in a word, was terrible. Kenyon Martin went first overall and had a decent career but never lived up to the hype. Michael Redd had a good five-year run in the middle of his career but injuries really limited him over the final four years in the league. So we’re going with Crawford here because he’s been consistent his entire career, averaging double digits in points 16 of his 18 seasons, and over 18 points a game six different years. He’s also won three sixth-man awards and is the only player in NBA history to win that award with two different teams. Runner up: Michael Redd, 43rd overall.
