NBA Draft Commentary That Didn't Come True

Michael Jordan Handpicks Kwame Brown

Draft class: 2001
Untrue commentary: "I think he's done a lot in terms of his basketball capabilities. It's up to us as well as the Washington Wizards to help this kid develop. He certainly has the skills." -Michael Jordan
Watch it here

No skills, big problem. Kwame Brown never developed into anything resembling a serviceable NBA player, and Michael Jordan was fired from his President of Basketball Operations position two seasons into Brown's career. We're not saying that MJ's firing was Brown's fault, but it was Brown's fault.
