Calling out the Busts

Every year, it is a proven fact, that nearly half of the lottery will end up being busts. The difficult part is finding out exactly which ones. While this is extremely biased, I'm going to guess which players will be busts according to NBA draft.net mock in the lottery ( even though i do think itll be very different from the original)
1. Blake Griffin- 19-10 guy at minimum. impossible to fail
2. Ricky Rubio- I haven't seen much other than highlights and the olympics, but he was impressive as 17 year covering chris paul. His passing ability is rare, and this a skill few nba players have. I think hell end up being a very good player
3. Hasheem Thabeet- BUST- Have these 7-3 projects ever worked out even once? Will never develop an offensive game. Won't be allowed to camp out in the lane and will have to cover people, which Blair showed he can't do. Hell, even UCONN realized in the tournament that they were a better team without him on the front line and replaced with robinson and adrian in a lot guys.
4. Jordan Hill- BUST- If you really are a top 5 big man, then you should lead your team to the top of a horrible pac 10. always put up big stats against bad teams, and sucked against good ones. looked average in the tournament. lacks toughness, which as these playoffs have shown is probably the number one thing you want out of big men maybe a solid guy wholl get never get you more than12-9 for his best season, but absolutely zero all-star or high scoring potential which you look for drafting at 4. normal draft he goes 15th.
5. James Harden- BUST- Just doesn't have the athleticism. I sorta liked him during the season, but during the tournament he showed he can't be a good nba player. it wasn't like he was missing shot against temple and syracuse (temple and syracuse) it was more like he just can't get shots against teams playing hard D. if you can't get shots on temple, how can you get shots in the nba? The broy comparisons are off-the-wall, if you remember Broy almost beat a stacked Uconn team by himself in the tournament, where Harden dissappeared.
6. Demar DeRozan- Risky pick, who will either star of bust. The next VC or the next Gerald Green. it is extremely hard to tell, but is worth the six pick considering his upside. I think he will hit, but its def possible he melts into obscurity
7. Brandon Jennings- Don't know enough about him to evaluate.
8. Stephen Curry- if he can get his shot off, hell be extremely effective. if he can't, then hes JJ reddick. i think his quickness has been underrated his entire career, so hell be a good offensive player
9. Earl Clark- BUST- It seems like every year people become enamored with big guys that can play like guards and the players who can it do it all. they are a scouts dream, but rarely do they pan out and turn in to effective players. didn't dominate at lville and looked lost at times. cant play in post, to weak. not a great shooter to play the 3 right now. doesn't have a killer instinct
10. Gerald Henderson- BUST- Too small, poor shooter, seems to dissappear, and not play smart basketball. if even coach K can't make you look good ( and hes made some pretty average nba players look amazing) then I don't think you can be a good nba player.
11. Chase Budinger- BUST- the hype surrounding this guy was never justified. given all the opportunity in arizona to get it done, and never came close.
12. Wayne Ellington- BUST- too small for good wing D, and the only thing got he is a J that he probably won't get off.
13. Eric Maynor- will be a solid back-up point guard in the league for 10 years. Its up to you whether you will call that a bust or not.
14. Jonny Flynn- At worst a speedy bench guy who can give quick scoring. his althleticism and heart give him potential to be much more than this.

I think this draft is a little off tho as Tyreke Evans is a guaranteed lottery pick. he is a high risk, but i wouldn't list him as a bust guy with his athleticism and scoring ability.

Blair should also be a lottery pick. He will be the second best big in the draft. If he was 6-8 he'd be a top 3 pick. his wingspan makes him this tall. I don't know how long it will take people to realize that standing reach is infinetely more important that height.

Lawson will also be a good pick.

Overall, we got 7 busts exactly what were looking for.

Obviously, what I'm trying to do here is extremely difficult. If I could do this with consitency then I'd be a NBA GM. Also this is a very weak draft where alot of busts should be expected. Don't get all upset if I called your favorite sleeper a bust, but if you reply just make sure to pick out 5-7 players that will be busts in the lottery. ( this is a proven fact, last year draft was exceptionally good and it is looking like it will have 4-5 lottery busts, 07 had about 5-6, and 06 had 7-8.. it will happen)

i agree with some of your

i agree with some of your busts but i would add blair to the bust list b/c i see him as the new TRACTOR traylor (traded for some guy named Dirk)...

i would of said curry is a sure bust, but after seeing Reddick start in Game 7 and get some PTs, i would have to believe that curry can make some impact since he is far more athletic than reddick

Jordan Hill

I agree. There are so many areas where he may fail miserably at the NBA level. Probably foul out of most games and will like be a garbage player on Offense for 2-3 years.

I will eat u alive on one or

I will eat u alive on one or maybe two
1)Harden is not going to be a bust just because he isn't super athletic,Harden is a scorer at any level,for instance look at ben gordon he's a great nba scorer and he isn't super athletic,not nearly as high a basketball IQ as Harden,not as tall as harden,and he is not lefty like Harden. I think he will be a good pro
2)Thabeet the only thing that can make him a bust is INJURY

dIsagree with tli232

Hill is ready for the NBA. YOU forget alot of rookies start on the bench. Hill could start on the bench and gets some playing time to workout his kinks.

He could be a great PF for 10 years.

I agree with you on all your

I agree with you on all your bust except 2 guys.....

1) HARDEN- Since when do you have to be extremely athletic to be effective? Although I do agree he won't be as close to Roy as some guys envision, he will definitely be an impact player. He just has too many skills not to be decent.

P.S. He really looked like he slimmed down a lot watching his workouts and that will help his lacking athleticism.

2) HENDERSON- In my opinion he will be the 3rd best player in this draft. He is only a poor shooter from 3, and how didn't he look good at Duke. I thought he was outstanding. He really isn't that small, I would understand if he was 6'2, but he is almost 6'5. He has elite athleticism and work ethic, and I think he can become a 17 point, 7 rebound, 2 steal a night type of guy.

The major point with Harden

The major point with Harden is that he sucked in the tournament. It wasn't like Harden got cold or something, it was that he just couldn't get shots off. With players like Griffin and Curry you could see that they were just missing shots,having off-nights, but they were still extremely talented. Harden looked invisible. I remember watching those Harden tournament games with my friends who don't follow basketball, and asked them which guy on the floor is gonna be a top 5 nba pick. They said pendegraph, glasser, Harden wasn't even a factor. He was like the 5 best player on the court. I know the sample size is small, but if you can't get shots on Temple I don't know how you do it against nba teams. He was schooled by Dionte Christmas.

No way Henderson gets 17

No way Henderson gets 17 point, 7 rebound, 2 steal in ANY season in his NBA career, but I do think he could be a high energy defender type guy if anything he is a 10 point 5 reb kind of guy.....

Why can't he average those

Why can't he average those numbers Billy? Please explain. I never said it was fact that he would average those numbers, but I think he definitely has the capability to do so.

Ok...

You have your bust picks, but I take 2 away from you and add 2.5...

James Harden- He had TOO many GREAT games to be called out for only 2... Him and Blake are the surest thing you will get in this draft...

Thabeett- Wasn't suppose to be a offensive minded player... If he gives you 4 points a night you would be happy... Don't understand how he would be a bust, only if he doesn't average 2 blocks a game and change shots...

My Busts...

Evans- I loved Evans in high school, but he looks far from a NBA player right now... He has NO jumper (with a low release point) and ALWAYS go right... His athleticism is so-so and he has average height at 6'5 (long wing-span tho)... With an inconsistent jumper and a guy his weight and height gaurding him, he'll be TOO easy to gaurd...

Derozan and Rubio-

Derozan is like you said risky pick, but a high reward one... Here's my problem, no real jumper and not enough handles... He does different things to win though, but I really feel like he's not a scorer...

Rubio- He plays D and he's young, but every European PG that came into the NBA was much older than he is... PG in the NBA takes a while to get used to for young players, so I think he is a project... He has no jumper so I'm thinking at this moment he might be a Sergio Rodriguez... Or he could be a Steve Nash with stealing ability...(I said stealing ability because saying defense is a stretch, he can't gaurd ANYBODY)

I am a not completely sold

I am a not completely sold on Evans either and I see what your saying. He is very undeveloped and doesn't seem like a smart player or has a good work ethic. I disagree about his ball handling tho as for a 6-6 guard I think he handles it pretty well, and he has good speed. ESPN has him going 5 or 6 which would be ridiculous, but if you can get him at 15 then I .

We have pretty similar opinions about Derozan and Rubio. High risk, high reward. I think Rubio's age though even increases his value. It might take him a while to develop but, if he does absolutely nothing for the first 3 years he is only the age of Thabeet and Hill right now. Its not like memphis can win in the next three years. He also has good stats in europe, unlike many other european projects. Everyone talks about his vaunted stealing ability About his on-ball defense its funny because everyone either says he the absolute best or the absolute worst. I've heard both sides argued for many times, but nothing in between. but given his height, wingspan, about average footspeed, and heart i would say he will be an about average on-ball defender.

If Thabeet averages 4 points and 2 blocks I can't see anyone calling him anything but a bust. I wouldnt even consider him a very good shot blocker skill wise, he was just so much taller than everyone. He won't be allowed to camp out in the lane in the pros. Thabeet is a horrible on ball defender. He is also a bad rebounder due to his bad hands and lack of aggresiveness.

I liked Harden all season just those two games really scared me. These were the two most important games of Harden's career and he couldn't get a shot off.

man.

way too many bust...sorry, but I don't see the whole lottery being a bust. If anything I don't see why people are so high on Griffin...no offense. I just...have a feeling he won't be good enough and live up to expectations.

It is a proven fact

Every year there are 5-7 guys that will drafted in the top 14 and become busts. It is a suprisingly high ratio, but historically it is proven. Couple that with the fact that most people see this as one of the weakest drafts in years, one can only guess that somewhere around 6-7 guys will end up being busts.

I think a lot of these guys

I think a lot of these guys would be considered busts in other drafts if they were picked in lottery but most guys in the lottery this year will probably be in the top 10 players from this draft.

I just

consider a bust as someone who is suppose to be a superstar in the league, but isn't. Only players from this draft that can be that is Griffin, Harden, and Rubio from what everyone is saying. The rest are just suppose to be starters or good role players with a few that have potential. That's why I say it's way too many. Seriously, if Jordan Hill averages 10+Points and 7 Rebounds would you consider him a bust? Or Henderson averaging 15? You can't expect all these players to come and dominate the BEST LEAGUE in the World.

You can't always based the

You can't always based the bust count off of past draft because with the age thing the draft are a little different. Also there are not many big men to get drafted higher than they should. You rarely go wrong with drafted a talented perimeter player. Also last years draft was supposed to be weak except for Rose and Beastly. People though OJ and Love were overrated. Last years draft I don't believe had any busts. I think this draft has so much uncertainty that there will not be many bust mainly because people draft for need. They could also use that pick to get a vet they want.

Last year out of the 30

Last year out of the 30 picks there was only 6 player in the first round that you could even call bust and Gallinari did not get enough playing time for me to say he isnt so this number could be at 4 for that draft when it is all said and done. This year if teams draft wisely and dont get caught on hype( I am talking to Chase lover) then they should be good. Most of these players have question marks which is why this draft is said to be weak but more and more by looking at workouts, this draft is looking better.

Interesting topic...

...However I would caution you all in making some of these assessments about whether guys are gonna be busts or not. NBA franchise have teams of guys that get paid good money to watch these guys in games and on footage and watch them work out in person all to determine whether they can succeed in the NBA or not. And despite all that, they still get it wrong sometimes. So what makes any of us think we can possibly know?

That's the beauty of the draft, the unpredictability of how some guys are gonna fit and how some are gonna bust. It's like who possibly knew that a guy like Stephen Jackson, who's from a community college no less, would be as good as he turned out, from the second round.

That's what we should predict, who's gonna be a breakout player that's likely to go in the second round?

You're a funny guy

You're a funny guy duece.....Better than Mutombo? hahahah. Thabeet is trash, and why does everybody call this guy athletic? He moves like a robot to me, he has no fluidity to his game. He may get a couple of blocks a game, but I would expect more from a projected top 3 pick. In all honesty, I firmly believe that B.J. Mullens will be a much better center once their careers are through.

How is Thabeet not athletic?

How is Thabeet not athletic? He's about four inches taller than Mutumbo, yet he's much quicker and stronger. Again, most of you have no ability to scout big-men. And now he's a project? DO YOU EVEN WATCH COLLEGE BASKETBALL?

Thabeet is NOT 4 inches taller

Mutombo 7-2
Thabeet 7-3 (before combine) most players heights in college are fudged a bit

It's amazing how many people equate one inch to be SOOOO much taller.
If you don't have timing...it's not there.
Dikembe may have been a late ball player but he played football (soccer) groing up a-la Olajuwon.
He good foot work for a guy his size.

Mutombo

Dikembe Mutombo averaged at least 11 points/game in 10 out of his first 12 seasons, while putting up double figure rebounds every year. Mutombo was an incredible NBA player not only for his defense, but his incredible longevity. He was still playing through his 40s, which for a guy his size is very rare.

Most players that are Thabeet's size (significantly over 7-feet) have major health problems and typically don't have careers that are as long. Thabeet's prime could be similar to Mutombo, but Thabeet has a long ways to go before he can even be be considered as good as Mutombo.

I think of guys like Bynum,

I think of guys like Bynum, Anthony Randolph, and Dwight Howard athletic big-men. And I thought Thabeet was barely touching 7'3 and Mutombo is about 7'2, so where are you getting this "he is 4 inches taller" junk? He'll be lucky to have the same career as Adonal Foyle lol.

Thabeet

He's an athletic big man any way you slice it.
I'd compare him more to someone like Tyson Chandler, though. Someone that size, that athletic should be able to able to find more ways to score, but Tyson seems to get pushed around by guys with lower centers of gravity, and either can't handle passes or doesn't keep the ball up high and gets it knocked away too easily.
I could see Hasheem having the same problems.
You also have to consider that shot-blocking in the NBA is also a much different story than shot-blocking in the NCAA since you can't just stand around in the lane all day long, and you might be running out to try and block a Tim Duncan (or maybe Dwight Howard) jumper.

Hahaha. I like the Dwight Inclusion ch15. Thabeet wouldn't even need to block a "superman" jumper, Dwight is self-blocked past 15 feet. I don't see Thabeet as Chandler though. Chandler is much more fluid and explosive. Hasheem just looks like a 7'3" klutz that just drank some nyquil to me.

Good find. Very interesting numbers.

I think the difference is that Mutombo had that crazy desire to fight for every win. You could compare T-Mac's numbers to Michael Jordan's numbers, but we all know that there is NO comparison between the two basketball players.

I think Mutumbo might be a little bit much, but thabeet could be similar to a samuel dalembert 9 or 10 ppg (maybe) 9 boards 2 blocks and watching how he plays against aggressive big men 5.5 fouls per.
Or
he could view this website and really get a chip on his shoulder cuz everyones bashin him and average 20-20 and 5 haha 0.0001% chance id say.

Harden is not B Roy

I am sorry. When Roy came out I was certain the year before that he was the best player in college. Harden has never showed me anything similar to Roy. He could be a solid role player or a bust. I suspect he works hard and will be a solid role player. The Paul Pierce comparisons are off the wall too. He is not Paul Pierce or even similar to me.

RICKY RUBIO

Every1 who sayd Rubio is a bust is crazy he has underrated speed,and quick hands.All the point guards today get steals from roaming and causing their team points but very few do what Rubio can, pick your pocket and be a pest.not to mention he's 6'4 and I even heard 6'5 that's a big point guard.Besides D his offense is good not great his jumper is solid it's just the mechanics aren't great,he will be able to get his shot off though because he is much bigger than most nba points,and he can get to the hole because of his IQ and his underrated speed,and his exceptional passing.

lol

there's like two aminus in this site. one with the hyphen and the other without it.

mutombo's like 7'2 and not 6'11 so thabeet can't be 4 inches taller. good find with the stats (i hope it's accurate coz you didn't even get the heights right). remember stephane lasme? he was a monster blocker in college (averaged 13.5pts, 9.5rebs, 5.1blks).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WASWhKKQfY more of that in the nba for this big fella.

He's 6'3...

If that... He wasn't taller than D-Will... I've never seen Rubio lock someone down... He plays D like Sasha Vujacic, a whole bunch of smoke and mirrors but no results... His jumper is worse than Westbrook, they said that even if Rubio fall to them they are unlikely to take him... Can't put two players without a jumper in the backcourt together.... Say what you want, but continue to Over Hype that guy and you will get what you deserve......

WTF?

How is Hasheem Thabeet more athletic than the Mountain? Maybe you didn't catch his prime. Hasheem is very clumsy, I have a hard time seeing him be on the floor for more than 22-25 min in a game (maybe ever), for whatever reason.

Easy, he's faster, stronger

Easy, he's faster, stronger and he can jump higher. Mutombo definitely seems to have a higher basketball IQ, but Thabeet will learn to be a great shot-blocker in this league.

Way too early to tell

I think this topic would be more appropriate AFTER the draft, when we see where everone's landed. History shows that sometimes good players end up in terrible situations. To take a recent example, Jerryd Bayless spent the year buried on the bench in Portland and got almost no playing time when he was one of the top talents last year. Would you call him a bust? I would think not, but because if he stays in Portland people will start calling him one.

The same thing is probably going to happen to a bunch of players this year, and people will rush to call them busts because they'll see very little action. I say wait until we know where everyone goes, and then start this topic again.

I have a couple of questions

I have a couple of questions for the ones that are quick to call guys busts. How long does players have to be in the league before they are called busts? Are the getting enough playing time? Have they been injured, etc etc? What attributes carry the label bust? I've read alot of blogs using this term. Greg Oden comes to mind. He's already being called a bust, but in my opinion i think it's to early in his career to call him one. I can understand Kewame Brown being called a bust b/c his play definitely hasn't warranted that of a #1 pick & he's been in the leauge since 01'. However, there are plenty of guys that had slow starts to their careers(for whatever reason) and were instantly coined busts then things began to click for them. For example, can you say Jermaine O'neil who was buried on portland's bench before he signed with Indiana.
