Butler, without the injury

Butler, without the injury would definitely be in the NBA right now. With the exception of the top half of the list, some of these guys still have a shot to eventually land on a NBA roster.

-Ron Curry, showed he was a

-Ron Curry, showed he was a much better football player and was a special teams player in the NFL

-Omar Cook, despite his NY city legend, didn't do anything in the NBA and averaged 1.7 ppg 2.1 apg and shot 33% from the feild on his career

Those guys just weren't NBA players.

omar cook had a sick handle

omar cook had a sick handle and was a great passer and set up his teammates like a true leader at the point, but if the ball wasnt in his hand he was useless and he couldnt hit a jumper.

Jaron rush should be ashamed of himself. He was considered the best of the rush brothers coming out of highschool and he had crazy athelticism. But word was he was a complete drunk.

evan burns was all flash from what i saw of him and didnt have the skills that translated to the nba.

ronald curry was an athlete and built well but didnt have nba skills. But he was a raider so i have love for him

paul harris was a phenomanl defender and was very physical for a wing, but he didnt have the skills either.

jp prince was very intriguing. Could do a little of everything but never showed the ability to takeover a game. Needed to be more aggressive. A poor mans jalen rose.

Now that I remember, Ronald

Now that I remember, Ronald Curry was having a decent career as a WR for the Raiders. He ended up as more than just a special teams player. Injuries kept him from having the NFL career he could have had.

i was suprised Paul Harris and JP Prince didnt make it...

I thought they could be very good defensive guys...if old ass players weren't taking up spots in the league they might be around...

If Lenny Cooke had a NBA

If Lenny Cooke had a NBA opportunity how do you think he would have panned out?
