Ranking Top 5 NBA Draft Classes of All Time Featuring Michael Jordan's 1984 Draft Class

The NBA Draft has given the league some of the best players. While some drafts have been good, some great, and some have been the best of all time. 

But one question has been on several minds. Which one tops them all? 

Let's rank the top five draft classes of all time!

5) 1987 NBA Draft Class

From Reggie Miller, Horace Grant, Scottie Pippen, and David Robinson, the 1987 Draft class deserves to be on number 5. In fact, Robinson can alone fill up the sheet with MVP, DPOY, and All-NBA Awards. And if his stats are mentioned, it could take forever. This class is amongst the deepest.

4) 1996 NBA Draft Class

This is the Draft class that gave rise to 21st-century basketball. This has Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Steve Nash, Ray Allen, are just a few of the big names that fans couldn't get enough of. This class has many more superstars that has helped land this fourth spot.

3) 1985 NBA Draft Class

With Patrick Ewing, Karl Malone, and Chris Mullin, this class is already one-fourth of the 1992 Dream Team, considered the greatest collection of talent on one team. Of course, there was some confusion on whether the 1996 class was better than this or not, but this one is far more accomplished.
