The 2000 NBA Draft was held on June 28, 2000 at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. To date, it is the last draft held at the home arena of an NBA team; the following and subsequent drafts have all taken place at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York. This draft is considered to be the worst draft since the 1986 NBA Draft. To date, only top pick Kenyon Martin, first-rounder Jamaal Magloire (19th pick overall), and second-rounder Michael Redd (43rd pick overall) have played in the NBA All-Star Game (each only making the team one time); only one player has made an All-NBA Team (Redd, whose sole appearance was on the third team in 2004); only three players in the draft class have won a major end-of-season award (Hedo Türkoğlu was named Most Improved Player in 2008, Mike Miller was named NBA Sixth Man of the Year in 2006, and Jamal Crawford was named NBA Sixth Man of the Year in 2010); and few first-rounders are currently playing in the NBA. Sports Illustrated named this entire draft class (as opposed to individual players) the 6th biggest "draft bust" of the modern era - making it the only draft class among the site's top 20 list.[1] Just before the 2009 draft, ESPN.com columnist David Schoenfield wrote a piece in which he rated all of the drafts since the institution of the draft lottery in 1985, and the only draft which he gave the lowest possible grade of "F" was the 2000 draft.[2]
