2 NBA players you were completely wrong about (coming out of college)


Good & Bad


Marvin Williams - 2nd overall pick
Hasn't averaged over 10 ppg since the 2008 season. Averaging 8/3 this year. Has been a decent role player, but never an all-star like I thought he would become.


JJ Redick - 11th overall pick
I hated this pick and thought he would be a huge bust in the league. Really impressed with his work ethic and success, despite his lack of size & athleticism. Some team is going to pay him a lot of money this summer.

I never thought Chris Paul would be as good as he has been.

I thought Corey Brewer was going to be awesome.

Bad I'd go with Beasley

I was so pissed when the Hornets passed on Ronnie Brewer cause I knew he was gonna be an animal. He's still way better than who they drafted though(Hildrick Simmstrong).

Good

Kenny Faried. It was obvious to me he was going to be a beast in the NBA. If he would of went to a big time college no doubt he would of been a top 3 pick.

Bad

Steve Francis. Obviously turned out to be a good player but I though he was going to be a Hall of Famer. Still think his career would of turned out better had Chicago drafted him #1

Greg Oden: though I usually offer myself solace in that it's injuries and not effectiveness.


Harrison Barnes: Guy has been much better than I ever thought he could be. I didn't think his game would translate, but I was very wrong. He's also a much better 3pt shooter than I thought he'd be.

I never thought Big Baby would last long. He's had a solid career.

One of my favorite college players. I really thought he'd be a star in the league.

I was wrong about Joakim Noah and Michael Beasley. Thought Beasley would be a star and Noah would be a back-up center.

Same here. The guy came a year after Durant and shattered all of his Big 12 records.

Ignoring college

Kobe Bryant - I thought he'd be better than MJ. Wrong

LBJ - didn't think he'd be better than Kobe. Waaaaay wrong
