Players who you thought would be busts

I thought that Charlie V, Rudy Gay, Kevin Love, and Brandon Rush would not be nearly as good as they became. Who became better than you thought they would be.

JJ Redick has turned into a very solid player. I don't think anyone thought he would be this good in the NBA.

I was wrong about Elton

I was wrong about Elton Brand. That year, I thought Chicago should have gone with either Steve Francis or Lamar Odom with the #1 pick. At 6'8, and average athletecism, I thought Brand was nothing special and was the most overrated prospect that year. Although he is starting to go down hill now, he definitely proved that he was worth that #1 selection.

I was...

wrong on Tyreke Evans, not even gonna lie. Even when he was doin up rose & gordon in aau ball, i didn't think it would translate to the association.

at least people admitted

at least people admitted about the Stephon Curry thing because I got argue with for the longest when I compare this dude to like Arenas with better passing skills people wanted to kill me and now look. I will make some more predictions hopefully this time people be like hey he could know a lil something something. I will admit I though Evans would be good but not as good as he showed.

Brandon Jennings, I thought

Brandon Jennings, I thought he was just another one who had inconsistent shot, which I right bout, but I never thought he be a great passer.

Jrue Holiday - I thought he'd

Jrue Holiday - I thought he'd be terrible. (The question is can he keep it up, though.)

Demar Derozan - See above

I probably shouldn't admit this one - Chris Bosh. Skinny and only played one year. Yeah, bad call on my part.

Bargnani, thought he would be

Bargnani, thought he would be the next Nikolas Tskitishvili. He's actually become a good starter in the league.

Iverson. Thought he was too frail and short for his style of play to succeed in the league...hell wrong

He couldnt get on the floor in Europe, he only shot 20% from 3. Who had the Bucks at the 5 seed this year( without Mike Redd) at the begining of the season?

Mr.6000 killed me a while back when I said we'd draft Holiday

He's coming along fine...I was wrong about Curry...I thought he was a bust and now I think he may be Nash minus some passing...I was wrong about a lot more too.CDR was my steal of the draft one year(still could be)....
