#5 2009 NBA Draft Class
Notable Members: Blake Griffin (1st), James Harden (3rd), Tyreke Evans (4th), Ricky Rubio (5th), Stephen Curry (7th), DeMar DeRozan (9th), Brandon Jennings (10th), Jrue Holiday (17th), Ty Lawson (18th), Jeff Teague (19th), Taj Gibson (26th), Danny Green (46th), Patty Mills (55th)
Some people might not agree with this but the 2009 NBA draft class is one of the best ever. Griffin will go down as one of the best power forwards of his generation while Harden is going to make a case for the second greatest Rocket ever behind Hakeem Olajuwon. DeRozan is already the greatest Raptor ever and a lot of good role players like Evans, Rubio, Holiday, Teague, Gibson, Green, and Mills.
However, the cream of the crop is Stephen Curry, who is a two-time MVP and a three-time NBA champion. He is the greatest shooter in history and he has changed the game of basketball. He has inspired the evolution of the game, as well as the next generation of players with his elite shooting.Published 10 Dec 2018, 18:49 IST
