The Andrew Wiggins era in Minnesota is over. 

On Thursday, the Timberwolves traded the 24-year-old former No. 1 overall pick to the Golden State Warriors in exchange for D'Angelo Russell. The Warriors also received a first-round pick from Minnesota, meaning Wiggins was likely included more for salary purposes than overall value. That said, Golden State hopes it can unlock Wiggins' potential, something Minnesota simply was unable to do

Which brings us to today's quiz of the day. Wiggins heading to the Warriors may be his best chance at removing his name from top overall picks who didn't live up to the hype. In the last half-century, 16 of the NBA's No. 1 overall draft picks failed to make at least one All-Star Game over the course of their careers as of the 2019-20 season. How many of the 16 can you name in five minutes?

Good luck!

Can you name the No. 1 overall NBA draft picks since 1970 who never made an All-Star Game?
