1997 — Scot Pollard
If you’re not sure whether Scot Pollard was an NBA bust, just type his name into Google and see what you think. When your appearance on Survivor comes up before your NBA career, you know you’re a bust. Pollard was the number 19 pick but never found consistent playing time despite lasting a decade in the league as a career backup center.
He posted decent advanced metrics but never really had much production on the court, defending well and otherwise blending in with his surroundings.
