2006 — Paul Millsap over Andrea Bargnani
Millsap is one of only three second round picks on this list, and he’s an admittedly controversial one. Knowing what you know now, would you rather take Millsap, LaMarcus Aldridge, or Kyle Lowry at the start of their career? I’ll go with Mr. Underrated. Millsap never quite matched Aldridge’s per game numbers but was pretty analogous in fewer minutes, and he’s always been a dynamic defender and team player, constantly on winning teams.
As for Lowry, he was never even really a starter until his fifth season and not KLOE until he was 27 or 28. He probably wouldn’t have even lasted on your team that long if you took him #1. Millsap was a winning contributor from day one, so he’s the preferred pick.
