Default 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.

Honorary mention:
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
