No superstars in the bunch, but nine of the top 10 picks (including Elton Brand, Steve Francis, Baron Davis, Lamar Odom, Richard Hamilton and Shawn Marion) have a career average of at least 14 points. The draft looks even better with the inclusion of Andrei Kirilenko (No. 24) and Manu Ginobili (No. 57), who didn't make their NBA debuts until 2001 and 2002, respectively.
