Rajon Rondo
David Lee - who would thought this guy would play at this high of a level for do long?
Stephen Curry-thought he would be a flash in the pan, drafted high because of a great NCAA tourney performance.

these stats have decreased from last year to this year:

FG%
FT%
TS%
p/40
r/40
a/40
b/40

his PER has decreased by more than 3 points

again, he's already 23. he's towards the end of his developmental curve


So basically what you are saying is you haven't actually watched him play. Most of the plays Faried makes aren't measured by stats.

Oh and FYI its normal for a player's rate stats to go down when they first start playing more minutes.

He wouldn't crack the lineup no matter who is out for the Wolves, Adelman hates him.

I thought Ed O'Bannon would be good.

Didn't think Paul Milsaps would be anything.


And Derrick Williams averages 16/7 with a block, a steal and a 3 w good %s in games when he gets 30+ minutes (5 games). Still only 21.

i have seen a handfull of nuggets games. i enjoy watching them when they're on tv (and i watched all of their games when nba pass was free)

he's not doing that well this year. he's regressing by almost every statistical measure (his turnover rate has slightly decreased)

like what? he's not that good at defense

his usage rate hasn't increased enough to offset this, also

his stats are also inflated due to the system denver runs

Rashad McCants is a great one. How that guy fell off the face of the earth as fast as he did is unbelievable.

But at least he got Khloe before Lamar did.

Not really because he belonged in a mental hospital. Apparently he's working his way back up from the D league as of late.

Sean May is another good one

1 NBA player that shocked me with not only his productivity(16 PPG & 6 AST career), but also his longevity(16 years) was Sam Cassell. Very solid career.

I thought Beasley coming out was better than Durant, though i liked them both

Adam Morrison, i still think, had the best offensive season of my lifetime in CBB. The way he scored was just so advanced for a college JR.

Was constantly waiting for Jonathan Bender to become the dynamic star we all heard he was during practice.

I thought Eddie Griffin would be a better version of Robert Horry. Star potential but obviously he was a head case.


ETA -- Didn't think Andrew Bynum would pan out. Seemed like a 17-year-old fat arse whose growth would be stunted by Kobe's presence.

To this point, Derrick Williams. Thought he'd be an instant star.

When I was in Jr high,I thought Eddie Griffin out of of Seton Hall was one of the best players I'd ever seen. Can't believe he was a bust.

I thought Terrence Williams would be a star coming out of Louisville, but now he is playing in China...

Nate Robinson has surprised me when he gets playing time...

Michael Beasley proved me right tonight for the first time in his career.

The guy is still very talented

eddie griffin thought he was a SG. Shot too much, and even for a big guy, he wasnt a good shooter.

He had several 20/20 games. He had an absurd amount of natural ability
