Simple question. I expect to hear the usual suspects like Darko, Bowie and Kwame. But here's my argument here. In the case of Bowie, he got injured (not his fault) and viewed as a bad pick from the get go. In the case of Kwame, he was just another raw HS player in a draft that notoriously produced very little anyway. And in the case of Darko, much like Kwame, he was also very raw and proved very little beforehand if I recall correctly.
And then there is Beasley. A player who not only had obvious NBA talent, but who had one of the best college seasons by a freshman. Not only that, but he also wasn't one of those raw "projects" who had to be developed, he was NBA ready and polished and suffered no big time injuries in the NBA. In short, he is the prime example of a big time talent who failed because he had no work ethic nor took the sport seriously. It obviously doesn't help that that same draft proved to be very deep and produced other big time talents after him like Kevin Love, Russell Westbrook, and Eric Gordon.
So, is Michael Beasley the biggest bust in NBA history?
