Yes, anyone whom is an athletic jumper and can run as him, especially when he is considered a big man will be given the "potential" tag until he can't run or jump anymore. The physical attributes are just so appealing that teams think that he will finally break through on their team and the signing will be worthwhile.
However, he has not been in the league for 10 years. He was drafted 2nd overall in the 2000 draft, so he's approaching his 6th or 7th season. It's still alot, but not quite 10 years.
