Vin Baker (USA) – 2000
After being selected with the eighth overall pick of the 1993 Draft, Vin Baker was something of a ray of light for the Bucks in a time where there wasn’t a whole lot on the roster worth getting excited about.
Baker also got his chance to shine on the biggest stage in sport though, albeit if it was after he had moved on from Milwaukee. Marking a point in his career when he was past the prime he had displayed with the Bucks, Baker was still certainly useful for the US in Sydney.
On his way to picking up a gold medal, Baker averaged 8.0 points and 3.0 rebounds per game, including four games in which he scored 10 or more points.
The best play of Baker’s career was undoubtedly reserved for his early years in Milwaukee, but he did also go on to play well in Seattle before seeing his career fizzle out with the likes of the Celtics, Knicks, Rockets and Clippers.
