1992 Classic Basketball Draft Picks

I'm here with 16 card pack of 1992 Classic Basketball Draft Picks. The 92 NBA draft known for Shaq going first overall follow by Alonzo Mourning and Christian Laettner. All three are on the set along players who went drafted or undrafted. See if I can pull either of the three or those who went to long NBA careers like Latrell Sprewell. Might be a chance at "Baby Jordan" Harold Miner.
65 - Mik Kilgore - not drafted and played overseas. Passed away last year
64 - Herb Jones - went undrafted
63 - Ed Book - undrafted and played in New Zealand where he's from
62 - Tim Burroughs - got a player that was drafted. Timberwolves selected him 51st overall of the draft but didn't play for them. He spent his entire career overseas or
61 - Steve Rogers - drafted 40th overall by Nets but didn't play for them. Spent entire career overseas. It came full circle as he went from playing to coaching at Alabama St
5 - Litterial Green - got a player that played in NBA. Played five seasons along stint in defunct CBA during that time before going overseas
80 - Alex Blackwell - undrafted but got 27 game stint with Lakers in his only NBA season
79 - Jo Jo English - undrafted but played will Bulls in three separate stints as he bounced between CBA to NBA. Those 10-day contracts can get you somewhere in NBA. Known for the fight with Derek Harper that got spilled to courtside stands right in front view of David Stern.
25 - Jon Barry - drafted in 1st round he played 14 years in NBA before transitioning to NBA analyst
31 - Jimmy Jackson - A lottery pick (4th overall) he played 14 seasons with record holding 12 teams. Meanwhile good photo selection on this card.
32 - Matt Steigenga - played for Bulls 5 years after they drafted him with stints in Spain, CBA, and Japan in between. He played his only two games of his NBA career before finishing his career in CBA. Those two games got him a NBA championship ring despite being no longer on the team.
33 - Robert Horry -good picture shot of him shooting the long ball which he did for 16 years in the NBA.  He landed himself on 7 NBA championship teams the most of the modern era.
34 - Marlon Maxey - impressive BOOM-SHAKA-LAKA picture shot! He played two seasons with Timberwolves before spending remainder of his career overseas
35 - Reggie Slater - went undrafted but able to played for 7 teams in 8 seasons in the NBA.
70 - Van Usher - nice name! Went undrafted and never played in NBA
BC2 - Billy Owens - Magician is 20 card foil insert set. It's a flashback card of Billy Owens who was drafted in 91.

Nice stroll down memory lane. I had no idea Jim Jackson played for so many different teams.

Ed Book lol I have his autograph I went to Franklin & Marshall college where the Philadelphia 76ers held training camp back then and he was one of the players not to make the team.

I've always enjoy the look of this set. One of these days I'll grab the Shaq autographed card for my collection.

I was getting worried about your pull before I saw Jim Jackson and Robert Horry. And that is a great Jackson photo. It is really fun busting these old packs and seeing who you can pull. Fun post!
