Maybe it was because he was small or maybe it was because no one saw him catch wreck on the streets of New York, but there's no reason why Tiny was taken so late (although there were several Hall of Famers taken before him). Already a legend, Archibald took little time establishing himself as one of the L's best players. He was a one-man wrecking crew that was able dish as much as he was able to score—think Isiah Thomas. Archibald is still the only player to lead the NBA in points (34) and assists (11.4) in a single season.
