NBA Draft: Cavaliers Nightmare Scenario

Sorry, Jae. You're just a bit too short for my liking.

Yesterday I asked for your dream scenario and today I ask for your nightmare scenario. What would have to happen on draft day (within reason) for you to post a profanity-filled FanPost on this site while drowning your sorrows in Keystone Light? Keep in mind that you can't make any trades in these scenarios and that our front office isn't completely incompetent. So keep it reasonable. Here's mine:

With the 4th pick, the Cleveland Cavaliers select Thomas Robinson

With the 24th pick, the Cleveland Cavaliers select Tyshawn Taylor

With the 33rd pick, the Cleveland Cavaliers select Miles Plumlee

With the 34th pick, the Cleveland Cavaliers select Jae Crowder

Are these good players? Yeah, sure. But the main problem is that they don't address any of our needs. In theory, the Cavaliers could look at their big board and just select the best player available and come up with these four guys. In the end, however, I just don't feel as though we get that much better. Do we need a backup point guard? Yes, but that's not a priority with a first round pick. I've already discussed how I think drafting Robinson with Tristan Thompson and Anderson Varejao already at power forward is redundant.

So in the comments below, give me the nightmare scenario that would have the Price Is Right losing horn playing on repeat in your head.
