which players didn't meet your expectations?

yea its just 13 games or so but whatever i see guys get 1 good game and you talk about how he'll be on a tear then just forgets when the smoke clears lol

blake griffin - i know the team got better.. but blake took a step back or two when cp3 came in. from 22-12 to 20-11 and now 17-9 .. cmon man you can do better.

tyreke evans - i have given up my hopes on him last year, but he just keeps on declining lol. to be fair, sacramento has a bad organization i dont think they can develop anything there as long as they dont blew it up. its funny his rookie season is 20-5-5, down to 13-5-3 after 4 years. damn he got old fast haha

ty lawson - im sure he was a top 10 pg last year and argued he'll have a better career than jrue and jennings. i can't say the same thing now, he's percentages are just BAD.

javale mcgee - sure, the training with akeem will help.. can't see the results as of now. did he come of an injury or something? he should be beasting out of the 2nd unit..

michael beasley - 12pts and 5rebs a game for phoenix who doesnt have an all star.. cmon. im a fan of his talent but now i have doubts he'll break out.

who other players didnt meet your expectations? id also wanna put austin rivers but he's a rookie. he's hyped and all but can't hit an open. shoutouts to wizards for pulling out 0-10. didnt let me down in any way. gj

Blake has the chance to be

Blake has the chance to be among the 5 best power forwards ever..But it seems like he's always trying to make the spectacular play....

After watching Beasley in college i thought he would've been a much better player..But does have the talent,but he doesnt have the patient and maturity to work to become better...

I think Lawson is as good as he's going to get..

JaVale McGee has yet to fully tap into his talent....He happens to be 1 of my favorite players to watch....

Mike Dunleavy is 1 of the biggest underacheiver..

Rudy Gay has played well,but he has the talent to so much better....

Jimmer Freddette and Evan

Jimmer Freddette and Evan Turner. Jimmer I thought would be the man, was pretty sure he'd prove everyone wrong but I guess I was wrong... Turner can be considered a decent player now but honestly for a #2 pick he definitely isn't what I expected...

I agree with Turner, but I

I agree with Turner, but I absolutely expected Jimmer to struggle/suck. He's not a great athlete, he's ball-dominant yet not a good enough playmaker to be a PG and arguably the worst defender in the NBA. All he ever did well was score and needs to be a volume guy to do that in the NBA.

James Anderson - He had it

James Anderson - He had it all, size, handle, an outside shot and a scorers mentality, but after his injury during his rookie year ( 8.3 ppg ), he's never been the same. I don't think he's gotten in a game this season.

Rodney Carney. I've never seen a player so hampered by a lack of ball handling.

Wes Johnson is averaging

Wes Johnson is averaging 1.2ppg this season. I wasn't expecting him to be an all-star or even start this year but I thought he would be better than this !!!

Javale McGee has been amazing

Javale McGee has been amazing in his limited time, averaging 10.5 and 6 in 19.5 mins per game. There have been games where McGee scores 16 points in 18, 23, and 24 minutes, 18 in 21 mins, and 15 in 18 mins. He's averaging 2 blocks per game in 19.5 mins per game. He's also shooting it at 54.4% from the field. Just wait, it won't be long until McGee eats into half of Koufus' 20 minutes and McGee is playing 30+ minutes a game. He really did improve with Hakeem this past year, but he just hasn't gotten much PT. His Free throw percentages has also skyrocketed this season. Last season he shot them at 50% with Washington, 37% with Denver, but this season has soared to 70%.

He played 15 mins because he

He played 15 mins because he and Steph Curry got in foul trouble really early, I was listening to the game on the radio, and they said that they racked up a lot of fouls reaching in the first half, and they somehow racked up a lead in the first half as well.

That's disappointing. He was on such a hot streak, and it seems like he's kind of lost that momentum.

Jonny Flynn - He is a huge

Jonny Flynn - He is a huge disappointment after being a top 10 selection

Terrence Williams - After his stint with the Nets he was never able to crack the rotation in Houston

Donte Greene - had tons of potential but he wasn't able to put it all together

So far Lamar Odom hasn't

So far Lamar Odom hasn't shown up the way I had expected for LAC. Didn't expect him to make a full recovery to the state of his former 6MOY self, but I figured he'd at least get back to a good contributor off the bench and a desire to play again.

Other include Ed Davis, Michael Beasley, DeMarcus Cousins, Anderson Varejao(playing far above expectations), and OF COURSE like Tezo said, Roy Hibbert.
