Biggest NBA Draft Lottery Busts Since 2000 No. 6-10

BR5Daily ShowDecember 21, 2016

Welcome to BR5, your daily source for sports and pop culture news. BR5 breaks down the Worst NBA Draft Lottery Picks since 2000!

No. 10 is Sean May drafted by the Charlotte Bobcats. May was drafted 13th overall in the 2005 draft and led the Tar Heels to the National Title. However, his career was injury-riddled and he couldn’t cut it in the NBA.

No. 9 is the infamous Greg Oden. Oden still has a shot at proving the doubters wrong, but it seems unlikely at this point. Oden is known for being injured often and a big Internet sensation.

At No. 8 we have Rodney White, drafted ninth  overall by the Detroit Pistons. White never lived up to the hype and averaged a measly 7.7 points in 186 games. After basketball, White participated in a pot growing operation that ended just as poorly as his career.

No. 7 is Fran Vazquez at the 11th pick in 2005. The Orlando Magic tried to pair him with upcoming superstar Dwight Howard, but that didn’t work out. Vazquez is considered the worst pick in Orlando Magic history.

At No. 6 is the second overall pick in 2009, Hasheem Thabeet. Thabeet only averaged two points, two rebounds and one block per game. He was drafted before James Harden, Tyreke Evans and Ricky Rubio.
