2003 — Nick Collison
Nick Collison is arguably the least bust worthy player on the list, especially considering he’s having his jersey retired by the team that drafted him and kept him for his entire career, a rarity in the modern NBA. Collison and Kirk Hinrich played on three straight teams that made a run deep into March in Roy Williams’s final seasons in Kansas. From there Collison was drafted by the Seattle Super Sonics, and he played 14 years with the Sonics and Oklahoma City Thunder franchise before retiring.
He never averaged double digit points any season but was known as a hard worker and was almost always a difference maker with terrific advanced metrics off the bench. You expect more than 5.9 points per game from a number 12 pick, but 14 years of Nick Collison is a pretty good consolation prize.
