The 25 Worst Foreign Players in NBA History

3. Yinka Dare

Stats: 2.1 PPG 2.6 RPG 0.6 BPG
Teams: Nets
Career: (1995-1998)
Country: Nigeria

God rest his soul, but Yinka stunk in the NBA. It wasn't always like that, though. In college he led George Washington to the 1993 Sweet 16 and looked like he was going to be a beast in the middle for some lucky NBA franchise. That lucky club was the New Jersey Nets. They took him with the 14th pick in the 1994 Draft thinking they got a steal. Well, just three minutes into his pro career, Dare tore his ACL. Four years later he was done playing basketball. All in all, he was a nice guy and a good teammate. Rest in peace.
