The 25 Worst Foreign Players in NBA History

14. Wang Zhizhi

Stats: 4.4 PPG 1.7 RPG 0.3 BPG
Teams: Mavericks, Clippers, Heat
Career: (2001-2005)
Country: China

Wang was one of the better players in China before he became the first Chinese player to be drafted in the NBA. The Mavs took Wang in the second round of the '99 Draft but he didn't join them until 2001. His team, the Bayi Rockets, won a slew of Chinese Basketball Association titles until he left for America in 2001. He hardly played and when he did it wasn't impressive. Wang fit the typical stereotype of players from the Eastern Hemisphere: soft. Wang's a seven-footer with no post game. If you can't shoot like Dirk, then what's the point?
