What do you think of this theory I made? http://in-n-outnba.blogspot.com/2009/10/big-bust-theory.html
Agree or Disagree?
some of those names u dropped for gaurds such as shaun livingston and jay williams i wouldnt consider busts.. both of em were good and i still think livingston can have the potential to earn a starting spot somewhere... but they were both good before their injuries
problem is that a good big man is far harder to find then a good perimiter player. So teams are much more likely to roll the dice on a big man, and normally I can't really blame them for that.
Alright I respect that u made that interesting work, but come on, I disagree with so many of ur busts. I dont care what ur data tells u, Tyreke Evans will not be a bust. In fact I think he has the potential to be the best guard in the class. Anyways, how are Raymond Felton, Kenyon Martin, Andrew Bogut, and even Marvin Williams considered busts in ur book? Sure they arent all stars, but those 4 guys were all starters who played big roles on their teams. I disagree with almost everything that blog had to say. And everyone needs to stop hating on Shaun Livingston, if the guy hadn;t have had that free injury then we would be talking about him as one of the best young point guards in the league. Besides, he is already looking real good for OKC, and i wouldnt be shocked if a team makes him their starting pg in a few years, that is if he leaves OKC
How does Evans have any signs of being a bust? Hes not a huge guard hes only 6'5'' but hes very strong and even though he doesnt have a great jumpshot neither did Wade, Lebron, Rose, etc...
What those three mentioned have that Evans doesn't is elite athleticism. Evans is a below average athlete at the NBA level. You will never see him dunk in traffic or sky to grab boards. I didn't read this guys list but I wouldn't be surprised if Evans turned out to be less than advertised. Maybe not a bust, but he won't be as good as many people are predicting.
Golly....I seriously thought Livingston was going to be a top 3 PG in the NBA. Why'd he have to get hurt, and like that too? Horrible...
what has evans done to make you think he is a bust? he lite it up in summer league and it going to be an awesome guard. no way he is a bust.
what a load of tosh. bender a 2 guard? lol, is that a joke? how can you ever predict who is going to be a bust. THEY HAVEN'T EVEN PLAYED A REGULAR SEASON GAME YET!!!!!!!! felton, bogut aren't busts. they are solid players. good luck writing better articles
Articles are horrible....most of the players he named aren't no where close to bust especially Marvin Williams.
evans and harden r basically the same height lol
since when is Bender a guard? and yeah some of those don't count because of injuries and Felton isn't a bust hes a good not great player but he wasn't taken with the 1st pick or anything.
