A look at the No. 2 overall picks from the past 10 years of the NBA draft
In the past 10 years, Kevin Durant is the only No. 2 overall selection to make an all-star team, while several others have been duds. Despite an inability to live up to lofty expectations in Miami, Michael Beasley has actually been one of the more productive No. 2 picks.
2000: Stromile Swift, Vancouver Grizzlies
In a weak draft that produced just three all-stars, Swift averaged 8.4 points in nine seasons. Already out of the league.
2001: Tyson Chandler, Chicago Bulls
Has become productive serving as a rebounding and shot-blocking presence, but has dealt with injuries the past two seasons.
2002: Jay Williams, Chicago Bulls
After uneven rookie season, Williams's career was curtailed by a horrific motorcycle accident.
2003: Darko Milicic, Detroit Pistons
Milicic is an NBA journeyman and unmitigated bust. Seven players selected after him have been all-stars, but he owns a championship ring.
2004: Emeka Okafor, Charlotte Bobcats
Okafor has had a solid but undistinguished career, averaging 13.3 points and 10.3 rebounds. Now with Hornets, he has never been to playoffs.
2005: Marvin Williams, Atlanta Hawks
