Oh I agree that Olawakandi was worse, but he was drafted before 2001.

Thanks! Corrected to 77 starts.

Kandi was drafted before the year specified in the question though.

And some people have trouble reading a question: "Who is the most disappointing #1 overall draft pick since 2001 not named Oden?"

How is Kandi-man a good answer?

Damn if only my ignorance went back 20 years instead of 15 I would have cleaned up there with the Jordan default answer.

22. R: Name a player who started at least 1 game for the Boston Celtics during their championship season of 1985-86.

I cheated and added a second personal-bias question because this is one of my all-time-favorite teams. I guess I could have mixed it up a little and said "Name a non-white player for the 1985-86 Celtics."

1998. The stupid part about that is I'm pretty sure the Clippers were interested in picking Mike Bibby. But as the draft neared there was a lot more positive buzz about Olowakandi and the Clippers ended up changing their decision and went with the Kandi-man.

So Olowokandi was a fast-riser/workout warrior type a la Jeff George?

The Kandi Man was not nearly as bad as Kwame. His ppg and rpg average are higher despite him being hit with with a ton of injuries and barely able to make an NBA roster the 5 post Clipper years of his career.

Not just a bad move, or mistake, for the Clips. Picking Olowokandi directly lead to the downfall for me in this game too.

Pretty much. They were drafting for upside. It boggles the mind how Elgin Baylor was able to be employed for so long.

I had totally forgotten that Raef LaFrentz went third to the Nuggets that year.
