1984 NBA Draft Results

The 1984 NBA Draft is considered to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest NBA draft of all time. There were a total of four NBA Hall of Famers selected in the first 16 picks of the draft, with five in total for the entirety of the 1984 NBA Draft results. It was the 37th annual draft held by the NBA, and was held at the Felt Forum at Madison Square Garden located in New York City on June 19th, 1984. The proceedings were shown on the USA Network, and a total of 23 NBA teams took turns selecting eligible college and international players. This was the first draft to be overseen by David Stern, and the last before the implementation of the NBA Draft Lottery system. The Hall of Famers selected in the first 16 picks in draft were Olajuwon, Barkley, Stockton, and Michael Jordan.
