Ranking Top 10 Eighth Overall Draft Picks in NBA History
#8 Vin Baker, 1993
The four best power forwards during the 90s were Karl Malone, Charles Barkley, Dennis Rodman and Shawn Kemp. Right behind them was probably Baker, an NBA All-Star four times in his first five seasons. A native of Lake Wales, Florida, he was named to the All-NBA Third Team in 1997 and All-NBA Second Team in 1998. Conditioning issues prevented him from launching his game to the next level, but early in his career he was a force in the post and had an impressive face-up game for a guy his size.
