Darko Miličić, Pistons (2003)
Darko Miličić is almost single-handedly responsible for killing the infatuation of NBA Teams with selecting raw-but-talented players from Europe. Taken one spot behind LeBron James, and ahead of Carmelo Anthony, Chris Bosh, and Dwyane Wade, Miličić spending most of his first three seasons on the bench, and in the dog house of head coach Larry Brown. While Miličić blamed his lack of playing time as the biggest reason for his failure in the NBA, plenty of people around the team believed he was more interested in the NBA lifestyle, versus becoming an NBA star. Miličić bounced around five more teams in the NBA, before heading back to Europe.
