Default Re: Top 5 Soon To Be Draftees You Wanna Watch In The NBA

But are guys like Brandon Haywood, Casey Jacobson, or Brian Cook really busts? They have stuck around in the NBA. They were not considered guys who will change the face of a team like Olowokandi, Kwame, or Araujo, who are busts. I just think it is all relative, but you can't call a guy a lot of people think won't do well a bust.

I like the Hansbrough part, but I don't know if I agree with the rest. Guys that are taken 15-30 are still supposed to make their team better. It's not like there are 14 guys in the draft that can be considered busts, and if the rest are scrubs, so be it. Guys like Julius Hodge or Reece Gaines I would consider busts.
