    Fizer worst #4 pick since draft lotto

    ESPN Page 2 - Page 2: Worst lottery picks in NBA draft history

    Amazing looking back how some of these guys ever were picked so high. Completely agree with their pick for #1 overall.

    Chris Washburn.
    Certainly a waste of talent.

    Re: Fizer worst #4 pick since draft lotto

    As much as it hurts to say it, both Fizer and Davis were two of the biggest busts of all time. Two of our greatest legends sucked at the next level.

    Cannot say I disagree with this placement of Fizer.

    Chris Mihm made the dishonorable mention list too. When those guys matched up in college it was epic.

    Re: Fizer worst #4 pick since draft lotto

    No doubt Fizer is a bust. But I don't think I would put him on the top spot. He had a good year going and was being talked about as a potential 6th man of the year candidate before he blew out his knee. The guy says that he doesn't include people that don't play b/c of injuries but than he puts on a guy who had stomach cancer, a guy who had 3 knee surgeries, etc

    Fizer was a solid scorer off the bench and would have had a good career had he not blown out his knees.

    Big Country made the list as a dishonorable mention. He's one guy that anyone would have wanted in college.

    Don't agree, but that's my opinion. Still think one more year in college would of helped him.

    Re: Fizer worst #4 pick since draft lotto

    There are definitely a lot of what-ifs to Fizer's career. I don't think he was in the best position when they tried to make him into a small forward but maybe he really was too short to be a PF anywhere. Watching him in college it's hard to imagine him not making more of an impact in the NBA.

    I meant Fizer in the NBA, Davis in the NFL. Two of ISU's greatest players of all time just couldn't muster any sort of professional career to speak of.
