With the 18th pick in the 2006 NBA Draft the Washington Wizards select…Stewie Griffin? Pecherov’s looks garnered national attention when an announcer compared him to the maniacal Family Guy character. Despite being a seven-footer, he couldn’t rebound or defend. And despite being a Euro big man, he couldn’t shoot. He’s best known for getting jammed on by Andres Nocioni. It doesn’t help his case that Rajon Rondo went three picks later at 21.
