Well, he played excellently when he was in Nets. My idea is that if Kenyon performed bad in Nuggets, it's the coach or the teammates' fault instead of his . I'm sure if he comes back to Nets, he's still able to get over 16 points and 9 rebounds per game.

Depends on how he heals from the injury.

It depends on what you mean when you say 'Worst'. Do you mean the worst pick, or the worst player? Kwame Brown is a horrible player, but that draft sucked. No one from that draft would be in this years top 5. Kandi was a worse pick, because that draft was better.

No. Never a top overall pick. He was the 4th pick in '94.

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

Michael Olawakandi

NBA Career 1998-2006

Worst pick and Worst no.1 prospect of all time.
