What are some of the deepest NBA drafts (by year) in history?

In my opinion these are the top 6 for me:

  1. 1984 draft – Michael Jordan (GOAT), Hakeem Olajuwon (top 5 C), John Stockton (top 5 PG), Charles Barkley (top 5 PF)
  2. 1996 draft – Kobe Bryant (top 2 SG), Allen Iverson (top 6 SG), Steve Nash (top 10 PG), Ray Allen (top 10 SG), Ben Wallace (top 25 C)
  3. 2003 draft – Lebron James (greatest SF), Dwayne Wade (top 5 SG), Carmelo Anthony (top 20 SF), Chris Bosh (top 25 PF)
  4. 1970 draft – Bob Lanier (top 25 C), Pete Maravich (top 20 SG), Dave Cowens (top 15 C), Tiny Archibald (top 20 PG), Dan Issel (top 15 PF)
  5. 1987 draft – David Robinson (top 7 C), Scottie Pippen (top 7 SF), Kevin Johnson (top 25 PG), Reggie Miller (top 20 SG)
  6. 1962 draft – John Havlicek (top 7 SF), Jerry Lucas (top 15 PF), Dave Debusschere (top 20 PF), Zelmo Beaty (top 25 C), Chet Walker (top 30 SF)

Edit: I’m going to add the 1985 draft here as well cause its soooo close with 1962 – Patrick Ewing (top 10 C), Chris Mullin (top 30 SF), Karl Malone (top 3 PF), Joe Dumars (top 25 SG)

Jordan’s stats head to head versus the best defensive guards of his era prove he was unstoppable

I do have the stats here for head to head against various other great defensive guards of his era and it’s safe to say that nobody could really guard Jordan.

Vs Sidney Moncrief (2x DPOY)

Vs Joe Dumars (5x All-Def)

Vs Michael Cooper (1x DPOY)

Vs Dennis Johnson (9x All-Def)

Vs Alvin Robertson (1x DPOY)

Vs Gary Payton (1x DPOY)

Jordan dropped 30+ on every great defensive guard of his era. And what’s more, held them all to 15pts and below.
