At the core of any bad NBA team is one or more overrated players. The Chicago Bulls had some terrible teams after the golden years with the most overrated players in franchise history leading the way.
It kind of feels like the city made a deal with the devil. Michael Jordan gave the fans a taste of greatness for one decade, but the team followed that by dealing with a decade of horrible hoops and bad draft picks.
Instead of developing into a long-term powerhouse like the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers, the Bulls resorted to occupying the basement of the Central Division or the middle of the pack in the Eastern Conference for much of the 2000s.
Chicago had a top-five selection in each NBA Draft from 1999-2002. They should have been a contender again within three years after Jordan retired, but the front office continued to make poor decision after poor decision (Tim Floyd, anyone?).
All of the players on this list were either high draft picks that became awful players for the Bulls or signed fat contracts that robbed the franchise of millions of dollars with their underwhelming performances.
