No. 1 pick Michael Olowokandi fizzled, but this class has produced a regular-season MVP (Dirk Nowitzki, No. 9), two Finals MVPs (Nowitzki and Paul Pierce, No. 10) and other multiple-time All-Stars in Vince Carter (No. 5), Antawn Jamison (No. 4) and Rashard Lewis (No. 32). Mike Bibby (No. 3) has enjoyed All-Star-caliber seasons without making the team.
