How about the 1986 NBA draft? This was one of the worst ever.

#2 pick Len Bias OD'd on cocaine the next night. #3 Chris Washburn, #6 William Bedford, and #7 Roy Tarpley all ruined their careers due to cocaine. #12 John Williams ate himself out of a promising career. There were also tons of busts like #5 Kenny Walker, #9 Brad Sellers, and #13 Pearl Washington.

Of first rounders, only #1 Brad Daugherty ever made the All Star Game. Some other good picks were #4 Chuck Person, #8 Ron Harper, and #24 Arvydas Sabonis. Guys like #10 Johnny Dawkins, #11 John Salley, #15 Dell Curry, and #22 Scott Skiles had solid careers too.

The big shock was the second round which featured four All Stars, #25 Mark Price, #27 Dennis Rodman, #33 Kevin Duckworth, and #46 Jeff Hornacek. The second round also featured decent players like #28 Larry Krystkowiak, #29 Johnny Newman, #30 Nate McMillan, #44 David Wingate. Drazen Petrovic went #60 in the third round.
