Biggest NBA Draft Busts
The Top Ten
Look at all the players after him
#2 Pick (Over Melo, Wade, Bosh)
Led Ohio State to the national championship game, and doesn't do crap in the NBA
#1 Pick (over Kevin Durant, and Al Horford)
He had a worse and more disappointing career than anyone on this list. He was out of the league in 4 years
#1 pick (before Oladipo, Nerleans Noel, and Giannia Antenkoumpo)
Taken over Harden and Curry
Hasheem the dream
#2 Pick (Currently in D-league) Over Tyreke Evans, Stephen Curry
Kwame Brown, God bless him, is a scrub
Kwame Brown is a bona-fide scrub!
#1 Pick (Over Pau Gasol, Joe Johnson, Zach Randolph, Gerald Wallace)
He was drafted right before Michael Jordan. That pretty much speaks for itself.
Taken over Jordan, Barkley, and Stockton
#1 Pick (Over Paul Pierce, Dirk N, Vince Carter)
Just the nickname "The candyman" means this guy is a scrub and a half and it doesn't help you when you're taken over Paul Pierce, Vince Carter and Dirk Nowitzki
#2 Pick (over amar'e and caron butler)
#2 Pick (Over Michael Redd, Jamal Crawford)
#9 Pick (Over Kobe and Nash)
Picked over Buddy Hield, Jamal Murray, Caris LeVert, Pascal Siakam, and the ROTY Malcolm Brogdon. He was projected to be a defensive maestro with high all star potential. Instead, he averaged 5 points per game, and didn’t start a single game in 2018/19.
Taken over LaMarcus Aldridge, Rajan Rondo, and Kyle Lowry
Andrea who? Exactly
No way does he deserve to be on the list. He didn't play in a game and he would've been a great player.
The epitome of "busts", he simply threw it all away. What an idiot.
If you don't want to be on this list, stay off the drugs!
1 turnover per life!
