I think last years bust was Steven Hunter, I know he was supposed to go second round or undrafted but he got drafted in the first round for some reason played good minutes for a while then was benched for the rest of the season.

With all of these high school players entering the draft, you can't tell if your investment has been a bust or not for atleast 2-3 years.

I really hope this place lasts a long time, because this is one quote I totally intend to bring back up when the time is right.

Even players that come out of high-school can play better than he did. McGrady averaged 7 ppg in his first year, Garnett averaged 10, Kobe averaged 7. Kwame got around 3 and he shot like 38% fg. If he is going to be any type of superstar, wouldn't he at least be an average or a little below-average player his rookie year? He was just bad.

True a lot, though they show massive potential, would still be classified 'projects' because of the time it takes to develop them

Steven Hunter didn't get much minutes but just wait untill this upcomming season before you call him a bust because the Magic really are counting on him to become a quality player for years to come. Give the guy time, don't judge him just yet.

Kwame Brown should have done better, with Michael Jordan on his team taking pressure way from him he should really have tooken advantage of that and proven what he's made out of, I still think he'll be good to come though.

Any more, if a player isn't 18, and don't contribute right away, they are available for the bust tag. You've gotta give Hunter three or four more years before you make a judgement on him. Give him until he's at least 24. There are a lot of great players that don't start playing well until that age that go to college for four years. He actually has shown a lot so far. He could be a very good player.

I think last year's bust will end up being Shane Battier. The guy is just not going to be worth the number 6 pick in the end. They should expect more than 12 PPG, 6 RPG from the 6th overall, which right now would be my estimate as to his career numbers.

I've got to disagree. It is true that when drafting a player you should be getting a player that stats are better than 12 and 6. But, not Shane Battier. I know you're going to hate this, but the guys going to make for a great leader. He'll put his heart and sole on the court, and his defense should be near the top in the league. He's a hustle guy that has a good head on his shoulders and in all likelihood won't miss time for off the court incidences. He should provide solid stats as 12 and 6 is pretty decent, but it's the other things that he brings to the court that makes him a great ballplayer.

I think that Kwame will end up as a Jermaine O'Neal look-a-like. A PF with Allstar potential.

Curry has already shown that he has a knack for scoring and his shot-selection is also ok. He could be a very decent center for years to come.

Chandler will be a superstar. No doubt about it. I am not Bulls fan whatsoever. I have to admit that I am even enjoying their struggles, but this guy could be very very good.

The biggest bust will be:
Sasser
Hutson
Diop

Ahhh...I was wondering when the NBADraft.net posts would start showing up here..

1- Kwame isnt a bust. No in last years draft can be called a bust yet. One season meas jack, especially when you are looking at HS jumpees. Was Jermaine ONeal a bust? He didn't do much his first couple of years, but now is an All-Star. Give Kwame some time.

2. This post is 3-4 years too early. Its hard to judge a player who hasn't played much. Diop is the perfect example. I thought I read somewhere that he has only played organized basketball since he was 16. So, actually, he has come a long ways....being able to be selected at 8 last year and had only 2 years of organized basketball in the US.....not bad.

3. Hunter a bust? No way. Again, too early. But I saw glimpses of a good player in the future in him, when I watched Orlando play. He did a decent job rebounding, challenging shots, etc.

4. Forte- I really hope this kid makes it in the L. I loved watching him because of his silky-smooth game. Again, too early to call on whether or not he's a bust.

5. Chandler and Curry- Chandler isnt going to be the next KG. Chandler is more of a defense player than offense. I see a better, more durable, Marcus Camby in him. Curry has more of an offense type game. I don't know who I'd compare him to. But they wont suck. Count on it.

Randy White

Randy White was suppost to be the steal of the draft. He ended up MIA with his face on a milk carton. At least Brown and Hunter played.

Rodney White, you mean? He's gonna be alright, just wait. But Detroit was a playoff team, and he's still a bit of a 'tweener,' so he's not gonna get very much burn his first couple seasons.

Wait

**** guys, get some damn patience!

Players take time to develop and one year of big time ball is not enough to tell if they are a bust or not. Some players take longer than others to get used to the NBA.

And Forte will be a very good player for Boston, just think of him as there starting PG in the next 1-2 years. He will do great with all the open shots he will get because of the constent double teaming of Pierce and Walker.
