10. Joe Alexander (#8 pick in 2008)

Screenshot 2016-07-30 03.00.57Many people have forgotten about Joe Alexander even though the 2008 draft was not that long ago. Why? Maybe becuase he only played a total of 67 NBA games (59 for the Bucks, 8 for the Bulls) averaging 4.2 PPG and 1.8 RPG.

He was a great college player and was described as the best athlete on paper at the draft combine, by having the second most number of 185 lb bench reps, the second highest max touch and the second fastest ¾ sprint time (2.99 seconds). Yet he was never able to overcome his struggles of transitioning from college to the NBA.

Players drafted after him:

Brook Lopez, Goran Dragic, Serge Ibaka, Nicolas Batum, DeAndre Jordan, Ryan Anderson, Nikola Pekovic, Omer Asik, Roy Hibbert, Robin Lopez, George Hill, Courtney Lee, D.J. Augustin and Mario Chalmers.

Why he is a bigger bust than Kwame Brown: Played in D-league, and less than 70 games in the NBA.
