Most of the embarrassing players on this list were embarrassing because of their lack of talent or athleticism, but Isaiah Rider was quite the opposite.
In fact, he was one of the more prominent scorers on the team. He averaged 18.7 PPG in his three seasons with the Wolves, and won the 1994 NBA Slam Dunk Contest.
So how was he embarrassing? It all started when Rider began constantly feuding with Timberwolves coach Bill Blair, which landed him a suspension for insubordination.
Rider then assaulted a female sports bar manager, which resulted in fifth-degree assault charges. He ended up being traded to Portland, but not before he was arrested for possession of marijuana and an illegal cell phone.
All in all, Rider could have been a superstar if he had so chosen. He didn’t though, and it resulted in him being a massive fail for the Timberwolves.
