Default Re: Top 5 picks that never helped the team who drafted them

Ray Allen never helped the team that drafted him. He was traded (with a first-round pick) to Milwaukee for the rights to Stephon Marbury in a move that will haunt my dreams for all eternity.

I want more free throws attempted than three-pointers attempted.

Aren't you a Mavs fan? You should know more about this deal than you're letting on. In case you really don't, Milwaukee drafted Dirk for Dallas in a pre-arranged deal.

And can somebody please explain to me why this character Fudge makes no sense? What is his question about 'Kandi? I don't understand it.

In an absolute reverse of the topic of this thread, Dominique Wilkins single-handedly saved the Jazz franchise from extinction and never played a single game for them.

Why am I not shocked Andrew Bogut didn't make your potential list?

Because you have the reading skills to notice that I only went through 2002?

2005: Marvin Williams is oozing with potential for this list. Atlanta is still a mess, and entering his second year, he still isn't ready to play in the NBA. Deron Williams and Ray Felton are still candidates as well.

I wrote that over the summer - guess I felt that Bogut had shown enough in his rookie year for me to say he would help his team some day, but Deron Williams hadn't yet. Obviously he has by now.

Don't know if Marvin Williams will ever get off the list. 13 and 5 on 43% shooting is nice from your second round pick, but not from your #2 overall pick in his second year.

Felton hasn't really worked his way off yet either. He's got a really mediocre assist/turnover ratio and shoots 38%. He could be good in a couple years, but it isn't a lock.

You can see the reason I made 2002 the cutoff though - it's too early to say after just one or two years.
