Top Ten Lakers Draft Picks

9. A.C. Green

With the 23rd pick, the Los Angeles Lakers drafted A.C. Green in the 1985 NBA Draft.  Green spent his first eight season with the Los Angeles Lakers, and in the 1999-2000 campaign Green played one more season with the Lakers.

Green had the luxury to win championships with both Magic Johnson and Kobe Bryant.  Green helped the Showtime Lakers win two titles, and his veteran leadership brought glory back to Los Angeles in 2000.

A.C. Green took care of all the dirty work for the Lakers, but his efforts never showed up on the box score.  Green made the hockey assists and his quick hands allowed for second-chances opportunities for his team.  While wearing the purple-and-gold, Green averaged 10.6 ppg and 7.7 rpg.
