Best and Worst NBA Lottery Picks

27 of 30

Worst No. 2 Pick: 2003 Pistons, Darko Milicic

There have been worse basketball players picked at No. 2, including Hasheem Thabeet in 2009, Shawn Bradley in 2003 and Stromile Swift in 2000. And Len Bias was certainly more tragic. But Milicic clearly goes down as the worst pick simply because of whom Detroit could have taken instead. The Pistons won the NBA championship in 2004 but how many more titles would they have if they'd taken any of the three players to go right after Darko: Carmelo Anthony, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh?
