Greg Oden has yet to reach the hype of being the #1 overall pick due to injuries.

After taking a look at the NBA drafts from 2001 through 2008, one thing that I noticed was how many terrible top 10 picks were made from that time frame. I could have made this list into a top 30 or 40 worst top 10 picks, but I settled for 20.

More often than not, having a top 10 pick means your team didn't have a quality season in the prior year. So, it is important to draft a quality player who can help improve your team for years to come. Unfortunately, many teams fail to do this.

Here is a list of the 20 worst top 10 picks from 2001-08. They are not in order, just listed by the year they were drafted.

Feel free to comment on the list, and how you would rank them.
