I'd like to nominate every single draft pick ever made by the Timberwolves, save "” obviously "” Garnett in '95 and maybe
Szczerbiak in '99. If the "worst" label were applied on the aggregate of all a franchise's picks, the 'Wolves win in a run-away.
Hell, no. You've obviously never followed the Clippers, one of the worst franchises in sports even as it consisently turn a nice tidy profit for the owner.The Clippers have consisently been bad, and always had lottery picks almost every year. Yet, they've almost never been able to even slide into the playoffs which is evidence of how poor their draft picks were. Compare that to the relative playoff success of the Knicks and the Timberwolves over that same span. Elgin Baylor is like an older Michael Jordan. Great basketball player, but horrible GM. Imagine MJ selecting Kwame Brown every year, and that's more or less Baylor's track record with the NBA Lottery. Timberwolves haven't even been around that long. When they've been sucking it up as long as the Clippers, then we can talk. And, despite how bad the rest of their picks may have been, they got Garnett, a top 50 player, and Wally S. which balances out how bad the rest of their picks may have been. With the Clippers, their best draft pick ever was Danny Manning, #1 pick in 88. Even though he was an all-star and a good player, he was nowhere as good as Garnett or Ewing ever were. The Clippers wasted a #1 pick on Olkawandki, #3 on Benoit Benjamen, etc... I would go on but I've tried my best to suppress any lingering memories about all the draft picks the Clippers wasted. And, with regards to the Arizona Cardianls, David Boston was actually a good pick- a Pro Bowler wide receiver who had both strength and speed.
