Re: Worst number 1 draft picks in NBA history
How about Pervis Ellison?
#1 in 1989. Picked over Shawn Kemp, Sean Elliot, Glenn Rice, Tim Hardaway.
Only had 2 quality seasons where he averaged better than 10pts a game.
Heck, even 2nd rounder Cliff Robinson did way better than him.
Joe Smith (95) picked over Garnett, Sheed, McDyess, Stackhouse, Michael Finley, Donnyel Marshall.
Joe was not as bad as Kwame or Kandi, but you can't be #1 and be outdone by 7 or 8 guys in that same yr. Even 43rd pick Eric Snow is having a better career
