5. Glenn Robinson

In the 1994 NBA Draft, the Dallas Mavericks selected Jason Kidd with the No. 2 overall pick. Kidd turned into one of the best point guards of all time and had multiple tenures with the team, and there was another star guard who was selected just one pick before him.

The Milwaukee Bucks selected Glenn Robinson with the No. 1 overall pick, and he was a star for them right away. In his rookie season, Robinson averaged 21.9 points, 6.4 rebounds, 2.5 assists, and 1.4 steals per game while shooting 45.1 percent from the field and 32.1 percent from downtown.

This helped Robinson land at No. 3 in Rookie of the Year voting with Kidd and Grant Hill both winning the award, and the top three picks in that draft were the top three players in Rookie of the Year voting.

Robinson was a dominant scorer on the wing, and he could score at all three levels. Whether that was scoring with his back to the basket in the low post, a mid-range jumper off the dribble, or knocking down open threes, Robinson did it all.

Robinson spent most of his career with the Bucks, but he also ended up winning a championship with the San Antonio Spurs in 2005. He also had two All-Star Game appearances in 2000 and 2001, and he was one of the more underrated players in the mid and late 1990s.

Dallas obviously had an amazing selection with Kidd, and now he has turned into a fantastic coach, but Robinson had a great career as well.
