No. 5, Denver Nuggets, 2002
The big mistake was either the high initial signing bonus or choosing him in the first place without even seeing him play, your pick. With an average 3 ppg and 2 reb, he was a bust. The alternate choice is one for the ages.
Should have chosen: Amar'e Stoudemire (No. 9, Phoenix), Caron Butler (No. 10, Miami), or Carlos Boozer (No. 35, Cleveland)
