I guess I was supposed to do number eights of these series but I was really busy and never got the chance to do so.
Anyway, here goes.
2010 Paul Georger-Indiana (This guy is an athletic specimen wit a skillset very similar to Danny Granger. Dont believe me, check this out)
2009 Brandon Jennings Milwaukee Bucks (55 points in a game as a rookie)
2008 Brook Lopez New Jersey (A 7'0 averaging a whopping 4.5 boards since the new year, Awesome!)
2007 Spencer Hawes Sacramento (Hasnt found his niche yet, guy needs to play in the Triangle offense)
2006 Mouhamed Sene-Sonics
2004 Luke Jackson - Cavaliers (Had some skill but a pointless pick b/c Lebron was already the point forward in town. Over the years Cleveland wasted their draft picks instead of helping their Lebron situation)
2003 Jarvis Hayes-Wizards in the stacked 03 draft (Chosen ahead of Pietrus and David west)
2002 Caron Butler-Heat (Exact same case with Paul Pierce, same pick, and should have never went so low. The reason I remember this is Jason Richardson picked fifth to Butlers Tenth, and Vince Carter pick 5 To Pierce's number ten)
2001 Joe Johnson-Celtics (You think the celtics wish they had kept J.J?)
1999 Jason Terry-Hawks (This guy was a BEAST in atlanta, he used to actually average 6+ assists)
1998 Paul Pierce-Celtics (Imagine if The clippers, Raptors, or warriors drafted him)
1997 Danny Fortson-Buck (Traded him to Denver and the following season they drafted Dirk and traded him for the trash man Roberty Taylor. Nothing says tragedy like draft failure!)
1995 Kurt Thomas-Heat (This guy was and still is an animal)
1994 Eddie Jones-Lakers (I loved Eddie when he was here in La. He served as Kobe's mentor before being traded away)
1992 Adam Keefe Hawks
1991 Brian Williams- Magic
Overall, the tenth pick is a pretty solid selection.Most of the all-stars from the tenth pick are wing players.Traditionally, the number one pick has seen a lot of overhyped players and the late lottery has seen guys with long NBA careers.
Believe it or not the Bucks, Lakers, Pacers, Heat, Celtics, Magic, and Hawks each chose a player with the tenth pick twice in the past twenty years. Thats pretty crazy.
All-time Five Would be: PG-Jason Terry
SG- Joe Johnson
SF- Paul Pierce
PF- Kurt Thomas
C- Andrew Bynum
Current five: PG- Brandon Jennings, SG-Paul George, SF-Joe Johnson, PF- Brook Lopez, C-Andrew Bynum
