TWT FIVE - NBA BUSTS AT No. 2

1. Sam Bowie, Blazers, 1984 - The all-time blunder; they could have had Michael Jordan.

2. Shawn Bradley, 76ers, 1993 - Turns out you can’t coach height, thickness, toughness and muscle.

3. Darko Milicic, Pistons, 2004 - AKA “Not Carmelo.”

4. Danny Ferry, Clippers, 1989 - Refused to play in Los Angeles. Instead went to Italy before disappointing in Cleveland.

5. Steve Francis, Vancouver, 1999 - Not only did “Franchise” tail off rather quickly as a pro, but the Grizzlies got next to nothing for him when they traded the sulking Maryland star to Houston … and wasted next year’s second pick on Stromile Swift.
