NUMBER 1 DRAFT PICKS WHO DID NOT PLAY THE NBA ALL-STAR GAME

Since the first NBA Draft in 1950 there are 23 number-one pick players who didn't play in the NBA All-Star Game. Some of them were simply awful NBA players, a few were really close and some 21st century draftees still have a chance to "disappear" from this list.

John Wall and Anthony Davis (2014 NBA All-Star) are the last players to leave this list.

List updated at January 2016.
