Pretty self-explanatory - and there is a write-in option. Bear in mind the draft position the Ws had when they picked and who else was available...You can include players gotten in draft day trades

I go with Fuller. To quote wikipedia: Fuller is considered by many people to be one of the biggest NBA busts in history, and was one in a series of disappointing Golden State picks. The last selection of the ill-fated Dave Twardzik Era, Fuller was taken ahead of Steve Nash, Kobe Bryant, Peja Stojakovic, Zydrunas Ilgauskas and Jermaine O'Neal, all of whom became NBA All-Stars.

It has to be Fuller. Someone has picked Foyle, and it's true that Foyle is a terrible bust whose only skill is to block some shots from time to time... well, that's one more skill than Fuller had.

Fuller was picked because of the other players that were passed up to take him.

Foyle was taken ahead of Tracy McGrady.

I believe that Russell Cross should also be mentioned with the word bust.

I'm too lazy to see if anyone added this name...

but doesn't Chris Washburn qualify here? i think - though not 100% - he was a draft pick of ours...

he was a terrible pick, but it was a weak year -the year Bias and Drazen were picked and headed towards early mortality - no one amazing after Washburn - 1986 might be the worst draft year in NBA history - even the Dunleavy draft had some studs - here's a quote "The Darkest Day in Draft History
Some drafts are good, many bad, but the realm of judgment is usually confined to the court. The 1986 NBA Draft changed all that - the tragedy and misfortune that struck so many of the names below would be hard for even Hollywood to hatch. From the early deaths of Len Bias and Drazen Petrovic to the drug-addicted failures of Roy Tarpley, Chris Wasburn and William Bedford, the 1986 NBA Draft will live in infamy and as a sad lesson that simply getting drafted doesn't mean you've made it.
1. Cleveland Cavaliers: Brad Daugherty, C, North Carolina
2. Boston Celtics: Len Bias, SF, Maryland
3. Golden State Warriors: Chris Washburn, C, NC State

I would say Todd Fuller because of the other player oppurtonities the Warriors could've had such as: Kobe. But in all honesty, it definetly has to be Adonal Foyle. Why? Because we didn't sign the bumbling whiteboy to a 42 million contract. Foyle has done nothing productive with the Warriors team and yet cashs in 6 mil a year? :banghead: :banghead:
