Best: Los Angeles Clippers — Chris Paul
Chris Paul played only six seasons with the Clippers, but they were the prime of the career of the best point guard so far this century. Paul routinely averaged just shy of 20 points and 10 assists a game, leading the league in assists twice and steals three times with the Clippers.
He was one of the league’s best defensive guards and one of its most efficient scorers along with being an elite passer and outstanding leader on and off the court. Blake Griffin may have been more exciting, but CP3 was always the engine that made Lob City tick.
Worst: Los Angeles Clippers — Michael Olowokandi
The Clippers moved from Buffalo to San Diego to Los Angeles without making the playoffs for 15 years into the 90s, but they hit rock bottom again going 17–65 in 1998 en route to landing the number one pick. They used it on raw Nigerian big man Michael Olowokandi, who abruptly led the team to an even worse record the next two seasons.
The Kandi Man somehow shot under 44% for his career despite standing seven feet tall, and the Clippers had nothing to show for a number one pick in a draft featuring Dirk Nowitzki, Paul Pierce, and Vince Carter.
