Golden State Warriors

Best Value: Chris Mullin, No. 7, 1985. Included in Mullin's terrific run with the Warriors was a five-year stretch in which he averaged at least 25 points every season.

Worst Value: Joe Smith, No. 1, 1995. Smith had a perfectly decent career, playing over 1,000 games in the pros, but he was with the Warriors for less than three seasons, and it was clear pretty early that he wasn't the type of franchise player you'd hope to draft at No. 1. Chris Washburn, who Golden State picked at No. 3 in 1986, played even fewer games for the Warriors, but that was a disappointing draft in general. Smith was taken ahead of Rasheed Wallace and Kevin Garnett.(Photo: Getty Images)
