Not to mention the NBA has seen several careers like Kwame Brown's. But i don't know if a thread like this is supposed to have anything like real perspective.

Whilst not getting out of the 1st round, did average 27 PPG in the Playoffs which is above season average.

Most ludicrous thread.

All posters in this thread (including myself) combined don't have half of the success he had.

Well, He's not that different from Lebron, except he didn't go join 2 other all stars.

He'll be remembered by us fans as not a huge winner but a great player in his prime. Respect.

On ISH if you're not Kobe, Lebron, Jordan, or Shaq you're a failure

His prime wasn't the longest but he was arguably the best player in the league at one point in time. (If not best top 2-3). If being the best player in the NBA makes you a failure, I wish I was a failure

$163 Million...OP works at McDonalds

Seriously. Why wouldn't Darko, Olowokandi, Kwame, Adam Morrison enter conversation?

TMac was a 7 time all star and 5 time first or second team NBA member.

GTFO, not a failure at all.

Depends how you measure it. Imo, the dude that runs this website has been more successful (in his field), than T-Mac was in basketball. Money doesn't equate to success. It just means that some sucker might've thought you were worth more than you actually were. It's the result that dictates whether or not you were/are successful (regardless of pay).

Tracy Mclazy was basically the second coming of Penny Hardaway of the early to mid 2000s.

Even Darius Miles is out of the discussion for biggest failure. Absolute biggest failure has to be reserved for a player whose terrible decisions cut his career extremely short and maybe even effected others. For instance, Javaris Crittenton getting drafted 19th overall and then being out of the league about two years later because he played with guns in the locker room. Then, while out of the league, he caught a murder charge. Talk about an epic fail.

Mike Sweetney was drafted 9th overall and was out of the league in four years because he let himself balloon to about 400 pounds. There's another epic fail for you.
