Frederic Weis — These days, the 7-foot-2 French center is best known for providing Vince Carter an obstacle to jump over in the Olympics. But in NBA circles, his infamy doesn't stop there. Weis was selected 15th overall by the Knicks in 1999, one spot ahead of local product Ron Artest, a pick that infuriated New York fans for years to come. He has still never played an NBA game.
