Best Value: Blake Griffin, No. 1, 2009. Let's be honest: There's not a lot of competition for this honor. Griffin missed the whole 2009-10 season because of a broken kneecap, but he's now one of several reasons this downtrodden franchise is finally enjoying some buzz. Danny Manning put up good numbers for the Clippers after they took him with the top pick in 1988, but the team remained largely irrelevant.
Worst Value: Michael Olowokandi, No. 1, 1998. Olowokandi was picked ahead of Mike Bibby, Antawn Jamison, Vince Carter, Dirk Nowitzki and Paul Pierce. Ouch. (Photo: Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images)
