Even worse than an empty pick is one that comes bundled with a passed-over superstar who serves as a constant reminder of the mistake.
There’s no Sam Bowie without Michael Jordan, right?
Misses come in all sorts of flavors, so let’s take this one step further. 9 pick Dirk Nowitzki, a first-ballot Hall of Famer?
If the Clippers could rewind the tape to 1998, they would surely opt against taking Olowokandi knowing what they know now. In the hindsight draft, Nowitzki is definitely headed to Hollywood.
As Oden himself noted in a 2014 interview with Grantland.com, his reputation is at the mercy of Durant’s performance.
“I know that it’ll only get worse as Kevin Durant continues doing big things,” he said.
It’s also worth noting that Bennett, 2013’s surprising No.
1 pick by Cleveland, has a shot at unseating Martin in this discussion.
1 pick compared to the best player taken in his class regardless of draft position.Here’s a look at the least productive top overall picks from 1966 through 2007 as measured by career Win Shares. Despite suiting up for just 82 games during his five-year tenure in Portland and another 23 games in Miami, Oden actually tallied nearly three times as many Win Shares as Olowokandi, a 7-foot center who shot just 43.5% and averaged 8.3 PPG and 6.8 RPG over 500 games for the Clippers, Timberwolves and Celtics. 1 pick ever” title goes to Martin, a 6’11” center who hung around for four uneventful seasons with the Blazers before retiring at the age of 26.Note that all top picks from 2008–2016 are still on NBA rosters and therefore still accumulating Win Shares. He left basketball with career averages of 5.3 PPG and 4.6 RPG and never appeared in a postseason game."In order for you to be a bust, you have to actually play and show people that you progressed as a player,” Durant said.“He didn't get a chance to." Durant has a point: Oden was a productive player when he was on the court, showing brief flashes of All-Star potential that other recent high draft choices, like Hasheem Thabeet and Anthony Bennett, have never mustered.
Although Chandler is a champion, an All-Star and a Defensive Player of the Year award winner, he never quite reached legend status, which should save Brown some grief as time passes.
