    or Barkley

    or Stockton

    Most unfortunate pick might be the Celtics picking Len Bias #2 overall. Just a sad thing all around. You'd really have to hate the Celtics a lot to get any joy out of that.

    Don't agree with Mike Miller on there. He is a quality NBA player and the best player of that class.

    Agreed.....and since when is Kenyon Martin considered a bad draft pick either?
    He was on the NBA's All Rookie team in 2001 and was an NBA All Star in 2004.
    When you don't keep winning awards, does that make you a bust all-of-a-sudden?
    He's a key guy on that Knicks team right now.

    WERD...Mike Miller hit 3 huge 3-pointers in Game 6 of the Finals last year, which definitely helped Miami force a Game 7.

    Don't know how you leave Larue Martin off the list. Taken No. 1 overall in 1972. Retired four years later after averaging 5.3 points.

    Feel bad for Portland.. Bowie over Jordan, now Oden over KD. Glad to see him on the court now, even if only 5-10 min a night.. He's fighting his butt off to play, even if he's a Buckeye.

    This article is over a year old, so I think Anthony Bennett's 2013-14 resume is looking to qualify him for this list. (I know it's early, but he's terrible.)

    To me, the worst NBA draft picks should be qualified by who could have been taken instead. Darko Milicic taken by the Pistons in 2003 with the #2 pick ahead of Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh and Dwayne Wade merits his placement on that list.

    Agree that Mike Miller shouldn't have been included in the "Woof." comment.

    He was named NBA Rookie of the Year and later NBA Sixth Man of the Year. He's had a productive career, scoring over 10 points per game in 10 different years, with a high of 18.5 points per game in 2006-7. And, he helped the Heat win their last two titles.
