19. Mark Price

Mark Price was an All-American at Georgia Tech, but he still left questions in scouts mouths who thought he was too small and too slow to play at the next level.  He proved them wrong and then some.  Drafted by the Mavericks late in the 1st round in 1986, a trade to the Cavaliers on draft day was just what he needed.  Price helped turn the Cavaliers into contenders and if it wasn’t for one Michael Jordan he might have a title or two.  He became one of the best point guards in the league with his ability to pass and hit long range jumpers.  Price was also adept at splitting double teams and was the second member of the 50-40-90 club after Larry Bird for players who shot 50 percent from the floor, 40 percent from behind the arc and 90 percent from the free throw line.
