Remember Wesley Johnson?

He's the guy ex-Wolves boss David Kahn wasted the fourth overall pick on in the 2010 NBA Draft. His time in Minnesota was only slightly more memorable than Johnny Flynn's. Thanks, Master Kahn.

Alas, Johnson has evolved into a decent backup playing about 13 minutes a game for the Los Angeles Clippers. But you'd be hard-pressed to find a more pathetic three-second stretch of basketball than Johnson's Thursday night.

With 20 seconds left in the game and the Clippers in control, Johnson's lazy pass from the baseline was picked off by San Antonio's Kyle Anderson, who flipped it to Pau Gasol for an easy dunk. But like the wasted pick he is, Johnson ran a real life instant replay and turned it over to Anderson again.

Fewer than three seconds ticked off the clock and Johnson racked up two turnovers and the Spurs cut the lead from 10 to six.

"I've never seen that in my life," the Clippers announcer says.
