Career Years: 1998-2007
Career Lowlight: Averaged just 5.0 points and 4.6 rebounds during 2005-06 season.
When a guy has only been playing the game for a couple years, logic says that maybe it isn't a good idea to use the No. 1 overall pick on him. The Los Angeles Clippers, however, have never really been ones to feel constrained by the bounds of logic. In making the Kandi Man the No. 1 overall pick of the 1998 NBA Draft, the Clippers put their future in the hands of a guy who played exactly one full college season. Not surprisingly, it didn't go well. He battled injury problems for most of his career, ultimately retiring after the 2006-07 season with career averages of 8.3 points and 6.8 rebounds per game.
