People, I think, will say Darko the most because of who was picked after him. So I'll stick with the penultimate of busts - Nikoloz Tskitishvili, 5th overall, 2002 draft. 2.9 ppg, 1.8 rpg. Four seasons.

Jay Williams got game.

From that list I'd say Darius Miles. To be honest, people were touting him as the next big thing but even before he got injured I thought his game to have been limited. He was like a Shawn Marion trying to be a point forward.

Certainly top 3 :)
Also, Darko and Brown.

The Whole 2000 NBA Draft Class, Darko, and Kwame.

no Darko in your "poll", cool

the 2001 Draft was so horrible. Kwame was a bad pick, but they all were bad picks except Tony Parker and Pau pretty much (generalizing guys, dont kill me)

so I say Darko. Cost the Pistons Melo/Wade/Bosh/Kaman even, etc

eddie griffin.. i thought he was going to be good, but he just fell off the map.

And he also had this thing happen to him..........He died

But I agree he was very talented I thought he had a similar game to Rasheed Wallace. Except a better shot blocker and a better rebounder. Could of been really good if he had his head on straight.

I remember when the Detroit Pistons drafted their so called future all star in 2000. Mattean Cleaves....
Oh man it was a great day for Detroiters, but we know how that one ended.
Oh well I still am dwelling on that 04 championship 6 years later

I've always liked him. Really sad what happen to him.

Anyways, its Kawme Brown, hands down.

It cant be Kwame. He never should have been drafted 1st. It wasn't like we all expected him to be great because he never gave us any indication that he would be. Now Adam Morrison on the other hand was a stud in college. But once he came to the pros, all he is known for is riding the pine to two championships with a horrible mustache

Nikoloz Tskitishvili, has to be him, 4 years in the league, at least the others have stuck around and done something.

But really Marvin Williams is on the list and Darko isn't wow, wow, wow.

Darko. I don't agree with Morrison because there were plenty of skeptics before he even was drafted.

Darko. When youre drafted ahead of Melo, Bosh, Wade, Hinrich, Ford, Kaman, Pietrus, David West, barbosa, luke walton etc.... and they all outplay you, your a huge bust.

kwame Brown and its not his fault. If Micheal Jordan hand picks you to be #1 pick you take it but hes not even a first round pick.

Darko, only because of the players taken after him, but Kwame Brown is pretty high on my list as well..

Kwame over Pau, Jow Johnson, Parker ,G walla ce and Arenas?

Darko over Wade, Melo, Bosh, Kirk, Kaman, David West, Josh Howard, and Mo Williams?

A bust doesn't have to be the highest player drafted IMO. A bust is the player with the highest expectations and hype coming out of college.

In that definition Adam Morrison is the biggest bust followed by Darko.

Those guys had a lot of hype coming into the draft, and their teams and analysts thought they were drafting a future all-star. Guys like Kwame were drafted on potential, and even most analysts thought he was a project.

No one has mentioned Shelden Williams? #5 pick, 4.5/3.8/.4 career

Definitely a major bust

Are Kwame and Darko still in the league?


I thought so.

Are Araujo , Swetney, or THisivilli in the lague?

there you have your answer

Has to be Morrison... At least Darko and Brown are on teams... Morrison might not even be in the league next year lolThe only reason Kwame is on a team is because there aren't that many big men out there to choose from or else he would be in the same boat as Morrison.

For me it has to be between Kwame and Miles. Just the fact they were drafted out of high school, they had a huge amount of hype. Miles was going to bring back the Clippers into relevancy along with Corey Maggette and Quentin Richardson. This failed, in Cleveland he was supposed to mentor LeBron and that failed. In Portland, he was a very limited player with the Jailblazers and his off court antics. In the case of Kwame, he got the chance to play with considerably the GOAT and develop to help him get him his 7th and 8th ring. Kwame turned out to be a huge bust in Washington and since then has became another league hoe moving to a new team every other season.
