Were the Vancouver Grizzlies the all time draft Losers?
1995 their first draft they take Big Country Bryant Reeves over Damon Stoudamire and Michael Finley.
1996 they draft Sharif Abdur Rahim, missing out on Kobe, Ray Allen, Stephan Marbury, and Steve Nash (great draft class also including Iverson at #1).
1997 they choose Antonio Daniels before Tracy McGrady.
1998 they take Mike Bibby #2 over Dirk Nowitzky, Vince Carter, Paul Pierce.
1999 traded pick Steve Francis to Houston, missed out on Ginobili, Baron Davis, Odom, Rip Hamilton, Shawn Marion, Ron Artest.
2000 picked Stromile Swift, missed Jamal Crawford and Michael Redd. Terrible choices that year, weak class.
2001 Shane Battier over Tony Parker, Joe Johnson and Zach Randolph.
2002 moved to Memphis.
Obviously you could never get them all right but If they had picked the correct choices they could have had Kobe, Dirk, Tony Parker,Tracy,McGrady, Ginobili and Zach Randolph. You could take Nash instead, the possibilities were endless. Salaries would become a problem but getting them on Rookie contracts they could keep them together for a while. Potentially all time GOAT team instead they were an all time worst.
Naw. At least the Clippers made the play-offs at least once every decade. (twice in the 90s)
Al Thornton, Korolev, Ely, olowokandi, Benjamin, Stanley Roberts, the list continues.Clippers also had bad luck with injuries(Manning and Livingston), draft positions(2003) and traded pick outcomes(Kyrie Irving)
