7. Manu Ginobili (Drafted 57th Overall In 1999)
It’s quite clear by now that Manu Ginobili is one of the greatest NBA Draft steals ever. To find him at 57th overall and see him become so amazing is saying a lot. Manu was always a great European player but no one knew how he’d adapt to the NBA upon arrival. However, he proved to be massively valuable to the San Antonio Spurs as a part of their big three for more than a decade.
This resulted in Manu being a 2-time NBA All-Star and 2-time All-NBA Third Team selection. Due to an injury, Manu had to miss some time and then the Spurs made him a bench man in 2007-2008, which resulted in Manu being named the 2008 NBA Sixth Man of the Year! All in all, Manu helped the Spurs win 4 NBA Championships. That is something special!
