NBA Draft Steals: The Top 25 Non-Lottery Picks of The Last 10 Years

When it comes to drafting, it's assumed that the higher the pick, the better the player. And while many of the league's stars the past ten years have been lottery picks (LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Dwayne Wade, Dwight Howard, Kevin Durant, just to name a few), just as many top picks have flamed out (Kwame Brown, Yi Jianlin, Acie Law, DeSagana Diop, Darko, just to name a few). But while the focus may be on the top ten picks, many great players can be found later in the first round, or even later in the draft in the second round- you know, the time you leave your television and have moved on with your life. To qualify as a "steal" for this list, the player must not be a lottery pick.

So, here's a list of the top 25 steals of the last ten years.Begin Slideshow
