No. 1 Picks in the NBA Draft

14 of 26

1998: Michael Olowakandi

In 1998, the Clippers selected Nigerian-born center Michael Olowokandi as the first overall pick. In nine NBA seasons, the "The Kandi Man" averaged 9.5 points and 7.7 rebounds per game. Olowokandi is considered one of the biggest draft busts of all time because Vince Carter, Paul Pierce and Rashard Lewis all came out in 1998. (AP Photo/Brett Coomer)
