Depends on how you define an NBA scrub. Laettner was actually pretty solid NB player for awhile. He averaged 17-8-3 his first six seasons in the league, and I believe even made an All-Star team. Averaged 18-9-3-1-1 as a rookie, too.

Christian Laettner

He wasn't a scrub he just had glass knees. A scrub would be J.J Redick.

Well not college but in high school, Kendrick Perkins averaged 28 points, 16 rebs, and 8 blocks per game....

While other schools also had examples, it seems as if several former Duke stars' games weren't able to translate to the NBA.

Yeah, ummm....I'm guessing almost every single player in the NBA had sick high school stats.

Redick's been good the past 3 or 4 years. Far from scrub status.
