Default I didn't realize Manu was just a second round pick

Or did anyone else not know Manu was a second-round pick?

He even played in Euro for a couple years after being drafted.

His first name is actually Emanuel. That's just crazy. I mean out of this world craziness that you don't see too often, but once in a while you do see craziness.

I wouldn't know it if Tom Tolbert/Marv Albert/Bill Walton didn't mention it every time he makes a shot.

Knew that he went in the second round but now that I look at it 57, second last pick in the second round, too low for such a good player. He was easily Top 12 in the draft. I would take him over Bender and Szczerbiak.

top 12? there are only three players in the 1999 draft that would be certainly be picked ahead of him with hindsight: The Matrix, Elton Brand and Richard Hamilton.
After that, it's a matter of taste and needs whom to pick from a group of talented players: Odom, Andre Miller, Jason Terry, Andrei Kirilenko and Manu. (no Steve Francis 'cause he's not a winner, no Ron Artest 'cause he's, well, unreliable...).
So Ginobili is a top 8 pick at worst, top 4 at best
