The NBA draft is a gamble.
For players such as Oscar Robertson, Wilt Chamberlain, Bill Russell, and Michael Jordan, this was the start of greatness, and a long journey that ended with an induction into the basketball Hall of Fame.
For other players, the journey is not so gracious. Many high draft choices have experienced nothing but failure in the NBA. Over the last 30 years, many great players have joined the NBA, but some horrendous players have come and gone as well.

So without further ado, and before I put you guys to sleep with all of this nonsense, here are my 30 worst draft picks of the last 30 years.
