12 WORST PBA IN-BETWEEN DRAFT PICKS OF ALL-TIME PREVIEW




Nobody wants to eat a bad sandwich.

I wonder what a bad sandwich is for you guys, though. I have seen people eat pansit bihon AS A sandwich but I would rather apply cheese on giniling or add hot sauce on a sandwich instead of ketchup.

Noodles?

A different story.

Food tastes yummy when you put tomato ketchup on it.

Noodles with tomato ketchup.

Eww?

Anyway, bad-tasting sandwiches exist in physical and metaphysical ways.

For example, bad in-between draft picks.

What?

Who wants to be the crappy filling in between two awesome talents?

Who wants to be the general manager who passed up on a great talent… and then narrowly missing on the even bigger talent.

I guess the best example of a bad draft sandwich in the NBA is Hasheem Thabeet – who was taken in between Blake Griffin and James Harden. I know the 1984 NBA Draft had Sam Bowie in between Hakeem Olajuwon and Michael Jordan but I really think Bowie’s bust status is overblown out of proportion. Bowie enjoyed a productive NBA career as a starter despite his injuries.

Also, if you want to go to the 1984 draft bust route, what about Mel Turpin who was selected sixth overall? I know, Turpin’s life ended tragically, but he was selected in between MVP Charles Barkley and defensive powerhouse Alvin Robertson.

But still, Thabeet takes the cake.
