2. Anthony Bennett (#1 pick in 2013)

1bennettThe only reason he doesn’t end up first on this list is because the draft class doesn’t feature future MVP candidates like Steph and Harden. Actually, the 2013 draft class was one of the worst draft classes in recent history. Bennett made history, becoming the first Canadian player to be drafted first overall. Having said that, the Cavs could have picked almost anyone of the other 59 players drafted and could have ended up with a better player (slight exaggeration, but still).

Bennett also became the first number one draft pick in NBA history, to play in the D-League. In his first two years (Cavs&TWolves) he averaged: 4.7 PPG and 3.4 REB with absurdly awful shooting percentages. Some say that it still might be to early to fully declare him a draft bust, but I beg to differ.

Players drafted after him:

Michael Carter-Williams, Giannis Antetokounmpo, Victor Oladipo, C.J. McCollum, Otto Porter, Rudy Gobert, Cody Zeller, Nerlens Noel, Ben McLemore, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, Trey Burke, Steven Adams, Kelly Olynyk, Shabazz Muhammad, Dennis Schröder and Mason Plumlee.

Why he is a bigger bust than Kwame Brown: Way worse stats than Kwame, not sure Bennett will ever be a starter in the NBA, let alone a competent bench player.
