1998–99 Gonzaga Bulldogs men's basketball team

The 1998-99 Gonzaga men's basketball team represented Gonzaga University during the 1998-99 NCAA Division I men's basketball season.

2000 NBA draft

The 2000 NBA draft was held on June 28, 2000 at the Target Center in Minneapolis. It was the last draft held at the home arena of an NBA team until 2011; the following and subsequent drafts (through 2010) all took place at The Theater at Madison Square Garden in New York City (though Madison Square Garden itself is the home of the New York Knicks, they do not play in the theater). As of 2017, it is also the last NBA draft where a college senior would be selected as the top selection of the draft.

The 2000 draft is considered one of the worst in NBA history. 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). In addition, only one player 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 won both the NBA Rookie of the Year and NBA Sixth Man of the Year awards in 2001 and 2006 respectively, and Jamal Crawford was named 3x NBA Sixth Man of the Year in 2010, 2014 and 2016); and few draft selections have enjoyed extended careers in the NBA.

Sports Illustrated named this entire draft class (as opposed to individual players) the 6th biggest bust of the modern era – making it the only draft class among the site's top 20 list. Just before the 2009 draft, 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. Using the WARP (wins above replacement player) metric, the 2000 NBA draft class collectively produced at a rate of 17.3 wins worse than a group of "average replacement players", effectively making 2000 the only draft class in NBA history to leave the NBA talent pool worse off than it had been prior to the given year's rookie draft.

The original team relocated to New Orleans prior to the 2002–03 season, retaining the Hornets name until 2013, when it was renamed the New Orleans Pelicans. The Charlotte franchise was suspended for two seasons, before an expansion team known as the Bobcats was established in 2004. It was renamed the Hornets prior to the 2014–15 season after the Pelicans relinquished the rights to the Hornets name.
