The worst-performing All-Stars at the combine


We recently took at the eventual NBA All-Stars who performed the best at the draft combines, a list led by none other than isaiah thomaswho surprisingly went last in his draft class anyway.

Others featured on that list included James Harden, Jimmy Butler and Victor Oladipoindicating that the draft combines can be a solid indicator of future NBA success.

However, that isn’t always the case.

Below, we present the NBA All-Stars who performed the worst at the combine. To determine the worst performances, we took the percentile scores for each star in the following drills: lane-agility drill, three-quarter sprint, standing vertical leap, max vertical leap and max bench press.

Again, many stars skipped draft combine drills, so it’s not as comprehensive a list as it could be. Either way, it’s a fun exercise. Let’s check out the results below, featuring the likes of Kevin Durant, Kawhi Leonard and a historically bad performance by Rudy Gobert.
