Being an NBA player can be hard.

Between the insane travel schedule, constant risk of injury, plus the critics and booing fans, it’s no wonder some players crumble under the immense pressure (Kwame Brown anyone?)

But what about the players who were actually half-decent? Even players who were respectable role players or All-Stars had extremely bad games that were very uncommon for them.

For a player to qualify for this list, they must’ve played at least 20 minutes the entire game, attempted at least 10 field goals, commited 2 turnovers, and of course, scored 0 points.
