With the competition and talent level in the NBA, it is rare for a single draft to produce a solid crop of starters, let alone multiple Hall of Famers.

From 1950 to 1996, NBA.com takes a look back at 10 drafts that made their marks on the history of the game.

Note: Draft orders were not recorded until 1957.
