It is, at the exit of the college, a player courted by many universities.
Brown engages initially for the university of Florida, but finally a few weeks later candidate for the Draft NBA declares itself. The direction of the Washington Wizards is allured by the young man and uses its first choice of draft to select it, which is a first in the history of NBA: never a high-school pupil had been selected like first choice. Michael Jordan, member of the executive team of the club, hopes much in this choice.
The fact of being number one of the draft, to be chosen by one of the largest players of all times, put too much pressure on the shoulders of Brown. The season Rookie of Brown one of weakest is ever carried out by a first choice of draft. The media and even Jordan criticize the rookie, and in particular its lack of maturity. Michael Jordan, so disappointed by the performances of Brown and the team in general, leaves her position of president of the operations of basketball of the capital, to find the parquet floor. But that is not enough to qualify the team for the playoffs.
Kwame Brown finishes the season with 4,5 points and 3,5 rebounds per match. Since, this player is regarded as one of the largest bide of the draft.
Despite everything, the direction of the Washington Wizards always believes in their protected young person. During its second professional season Brown plays a little more, it is titular 20 match out of the 80 played.

Its fourth season is marked by a regression on the statistical level. During the season 2004-2005, it disputes only 42 matches, because of wounds, and marks only hardly 7 points of average. At the end of the season, virulent criticisms protest against him. It enters in conflict with its fellow-members and its trainer Eddie Jordan, moreover the local press adds oil on fire, and Kwame becomes the Turkish head of the fans.
The situation with the public is envenimée so much, that Gilbert Arenas, the leader All-Star of the club, records before the first match of the playoffs a video requiring of the fans not to hoot Brown at the time of her entry concerned. The fans will listen to Arenas, and Brown can play five short minutes in all quietude at the time of the first match. But a few days later, Brown dries a drive as well as the following match. Wizards then suspend Brown, who will not play any more of the playoffs.
Brown is restricted free agent at the conclusion of the season 2004-2005, it is dispatched then in Lakers in company of Laron Profit and in exchange of Caron Butler and Chucky Atkins, and is joined Kobe Bryant. Today (November 2007) one can say that this exchange was not a success for Lakers.
