Darko Milicic turns 28 today and we're still waiting to see what Joe Dumars saw in him. 10 years ago the Hall of Fame guard took an 18-year-old Serbian center over Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade a year after reaching the Eastern Conference Finals. Had he done the logical thing and took one of those three, those Detroit Pistons teams would've won multiple titles. But to be fair, it wasn't Darko's fault that Dumars took him No. 2 overall in one of the best drafts in NBA history. The same can be said about all of the players on this list. However, once they're drafted it's their duty to work hard and get better, especially if you're making millions of dollars. Some player's names you might not recognize and some you will because your team wasted a pick on them. Guys like Slava Medvedenko and Johan Petro immediately come to mind. As do high profile names like Michael Olowokandi and the man this article is dedicated to, Darko Milicic. Peep who else is featured in the 25 Worst Foreign Players in NBA History.
