    Top 10 Undrafted NBA players

    ... who are currently playing


    The Top 10 Undrafted NBA Players | The Hoop Doctors

    The thing that strikes me about this list is how few stars are on it. Ben Wallace is as close as it gets, and it can be argued that he was never really that big of a star. It really is a testament to the scouting prowess of NBA teams who apparently do a good job drafting.

    If you were to look at the same list of NFL players, it would be much more star studded. (Kurt Warner, Antonio Gates, Adam Vinatieri, etc)

    Then again, this may only be the result of guaranteed contracts and smaller rosters in the NBA. Who knows. Interesting topic though.

    Brad Miller was an All-Star wasn't he? Calderon isn't bad either.

    don't get me wrong, I'm not saying these are bad players. I'm just saying that I was expecting more stars. Are Calderon and Miller in the same star category as NFL guys like James Harrison and Kurt Warner?

    You are comparing apples to oranges when looking at the NFL undrafted stars to the NBA undrafted stars.

    Mike James at 4 seems a bit high.

    ok, this is the discussion I wanted to start. Why is it apples to oranges? I'm not saying that you are wrong. Far fom it. But, why are they different?

    nobody ever said he wasn't very good, simply that it can be argued that he was never tha big of a star.

    If Pargo is on that list, you know that they don't have a deep pool to draw from.

    I met Pargo and a Lakers trainer at a YMCA in San Antonio when they were in town for a game several years back.

    that is all.

    What about the bird-man Chris Anderson? Wasn't he undrafted?

    probably number 11 :)
