Best and Worst NBA Lottery Picks

Worst No. 1 Pick: 2001 Wizards, Kwame Brown

As Washington's team president, Michael Jordan didn't do himself, the Wizards or Brown any favors by making the Florida high school star a No. 1 pick. Jordan didn't have patience for an immature teenager. The Wizards needed more immediate help, especially once Jordan decided to return to the court as a player. And Brown wasn't ready for the pressure and expectations. Now 29, he has been a journeyman center for five teams and could end up having a long, undistinguished but lucrative NBA career. Fine for a late first-round pick. Lame for a No. 1.
