90% or more of NBA players were stars in college though.

Um...pretty much even the last man off the bench on an NBA team was a star in college. Only the best of the best even MAKE it to the NBA.

Only exceptions are probably some 7 footers with decent size and athleticism that some NBA team drafted on pure potential.

Exactly.

A better question would be what NBA players weren't stars in college.

some of ya'll have some high standard for scrubs. no rotational player in the nba is a scrub. scrub is players 11-15 or not on a nba roster. we are all scrubs.

Chris Singleton has been a bit of a scrub since he came in I expected him to be a beast on defense like he was in college.

Joe Alexander: after a promising rookie season he completely vanished of the face of the earth.

I think it all started when he got injured. Went to D-League to rehab, but never came back. Not sure, though.
