Best and Worst NBA Lottery Picks

Best No. 12 Pick: 1989 Nets, Mookie Blaylock

Pity the Utah Jazz, who hold the No. 12 pick in this year's draft. That spot has been a wasteland in the lottery era, producing a string of mediocrities with short NBA careers. The only exception is Blaylock, a quick-handed point guard who played 13 seasons and wreaked defensive havoc for three teams. Twice the league leader in steals, he finished his career with over 2,000 of them. Even cooler than that, a Seattle rock band originally went by the name "Mookie Blaylock" before changing it to "Pearl Jam."
