The Worst NBA Draft Pick Every Season Since 2000


It’s often said that the NBA Draft is more of an art than a science. After all, you have to combine a bunch of data (a player’s height, speed, strength, jumping ability, etc) with a bunch of totally subjective observations (game film, playing style, college scheme), and then use all of that to determine if the player will be successful in the NBA. It’s not exactly the easiest process…

Which explains why guys like Kwame Brown and Anthony Bennett somehow ended up being taken with the #1 overall pick, while guys like Draymond Green, Manu Ginobili and Marc Gasol all slipped to the 2nd round.

With that in mind, we decided to go back and look through each NBA Draft since 2000, and determine the worst selection in each of those years. The decision to draft each of these players looks even worse when you see who they passed on! Click Next to get started!
