Kwame Brown and Michael Jordan: The 10 Worst Marriages in NBA History

In 2001, Michael Jordan, then the Washington Wizards' president of basketball operations, witnessed a workout of high school draft prospects Kwame Brown, Tyson Chandler, and Eddy Curry.

Jordan found himself wowed by Browns domination in one-on-one drills, so much so, in fact, that he made the 6'11" forward-center the first high school prospect to be selected with the No. 1 overall pick. 

The rest is history.

Brown has struggled throughout his NBA career, and during his time with Jordan, the two notoriously had a number of problems.

Furthermore, his selection is one of the main reasons for which Jordan was ultimately sent out of Washington. 

However, Jordan, now the majority owner and the managing member of basketball operations for the Charlotte Bobcats, has decided to reunite with Brown, signing the 270-pounder to a one-year, $1.3 million deal on August 23, 2010.

On the signing, Brown declared, "We're always going to be linked.  I might as well come here, right?"

Well, contrary to Brown's idea of this being a second chance to impress MJ, many expect him to continue to perform at a low level—which will only lead to more conflict between Brown and the all-time great.

So, therefore, it appears that this will, once again, be a failed marriage between Brown and Jordan.

But, throughout NBA history, there have certainly been worse duos, as both men have been able to continue to hold NBA employment. 

So, keeping that in mind, here are the 10 worst failed marriages in NBA history.
