The NBA draft lottery is Tuesday night, and that means one lucky team will have the opportunity to find a franchise player by landing the No. 1 overall pick.
Although several No. 1 picks -- such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Magic Johnson and Oscar Robertson -- have had Hall of Fame careers, plenty of top picks have lived in infamy as busts and huge disappointments.
Before we look forward, let's look back at the worst No. 1 pick since the 1976 ABA-NBA merger.
Although the Boston Celtics finished with the best record in the Eastern Conference, they also have the best odds of winning the lottery (25 percent) because of a 2013 trade that sent Kevin Garnett, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for four first-round picks, including the right to get the Nets' 2017 pick.
At 20-62, the Nets finished with the worst record in the NBA this season.
The NBA draft lottery starts Tuesday at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN/WatchESPN.
