Michael Olowokandi (Nigeria)
Fresh off the success of Hakeem Olajuwon leading the Houston Rockets to back to back championships, the Los Angeles Clippers thought they were ahead of the curve when they drafted Nigerian big man Michael Olowokandi first overall out of Pacific University.
The Kandi Man had all of the talent but none of the drive, and he fought through injuries to play 500 games in the NBA without ever really impacting any of them. Olowokandi almost averaged a double-double at his peak but was hated on by every fan base he played for. He managed to stay in the league almost a full decade before flaming out for good.
