I’ve heard ramblings of Kevin Love actually turning into a decent pro while Hansbrough will struggle from the beginning, but to me, they’re both destined to fail. They may each possess some intangibles, but they definitely don’t possess anything that Kobe, LeBron, and Melo are drinking.
Here is the list they will likely be joining within the next couple of years!
Just 2 years in after being drafted number one and he’s actually gotten worse. The numbers are down in the sophomore season at a ripe 10.2 points and 3.7 boards. His hair is pretty though!
One season played, one season torn ACL. Unlike the guy taken two spots before him, he does NOT have such pretty hair and his game looks even uglier on the NBA level. One year and 11.8 points and 2.9 rebounds a game? Oof.
Loving life in Orlando is this kid! Wait, he’s not loving…err..life? Practically cutting his scoring average in half this year down to 3.6 points per game is this former Dukie. That’s clutch!
Luke Jackson – Cleveland Cavaliers
Drafted: 2004 – 10th Overall
Wow, ESPN.com doesn’t even have him listed as a player in the NBA. Bust?
In 3 wonderful seasons, Mr. “Wha’ts with those tattoos?” has played a whopping 71 games averaging 4.6 pts/game to go with an astounding 4.0 rebounds. How many injuries has this kid had again?
In his first 3 seasons after being drafted #2 overall behind the King, his averages were 1.4, 1.8, and 1.5 points per game. Still think passing up Carmelo Anthony was the right decision?
Until this season, another complete Dukie white boy bust.
When are teams going to stop drafting the 7 foot white guy? Chris is the last on our least, but not less of a bust than the others! Being that tall and averaging 7.7 points and 5.4 rebounds on your career definitely lands you on this list.
So this is what you have to look forward to my young white apprentices. A life full of luxury and the luxury of underperforming. Have a great time Kevin and Tyler!
