Guys who seem to not be able to have any luck no matter where they go.


Players that come to mind are Eddie Jones and Grant Hill.


Eddie Jones was traded back in the day for Glen Rice and then the Lakers go on to win titles. Later he was on the Heat in 2004-2005 where they won 59 games and then he was traded again this time to Memphis and then the Heat win it all the next year.
Afterwards he goes to Dallas and then they lose in the 1st round.

Grant Hill has always been a great player. He was the Scottie Pippen prototype player, basically they were the same type of player. He was on Detroit with Joe Dumars and they never got out of the 1st round. He then went to Orlando and got injured and was really never the same.
Then he went to Phoenix with an opportunity to win a title and then he ends up losing in the 1st round again.


Are there any other players that seem to have no luck no matter where they go or what happens?

Chris Webber really could have won it all back in 2001 if it wasn't for the scandal.

Ricky Davis and Jamal Crawford tend to always be on a losing team. Marbury and Randolph too.

Tracy McGrady has been pretty unlucky. He's only played with 2 teams though. First with the Magic, where he mostly lost. And then with Houston where he can't seem to get past the 1st round of the playoffs every year.

It's not a coincidence those guys are always on losing teams...not at all.

Grant Hill wins this. He had all the talent in the world. He was going to be the next great (I remember thinking Grant and T-Mac were the next MJ and Pippen). His injuries have completely derailed his career, and almost took his life. I wouldn't wish what he went through on my worst enemies.

Well Shareef Abdur Rahim couldnt seem to get on a decent team. He left Atlanta to join the Blazers and the Kings while they were declining. He almost ended up on the Nets with Carter, Kidd, Jefferson and a healthy Krstic but failed a physical. That would of been a good situation for him.

Grant hill doesnt count as bad luck where ever he goes.... he had an injury... that's just bad luck, it's not based on location.

Definately not iverson cause i personally believe he hurts his team with poor shot selections and constant bickering at the refs. Philly was pretty decent without him, nuggets aren't that great with him.

Not Tmac either cause his game goes down in the playoffs

I will take a lot of heat for this, but I'm gonna say Mr. Kwame Brown. Cause no matter where he goes, he will always be regarded as possibly the biggest NBA bust ever and that's just gotta suck

First of all T-Mac was winning 3-1 in the series with Orlando against Detriot and what happened? Of course Detriot came back and won the series!!! Against Dallas and Utah T-Mac and the Houston Rockets were up 2-0 and what happened? Both teams came back and won in game 7!!! That is really sickening especielly getting raped by Dallas in game 7 it still hurts!!!!!!

Very true....he seems like a guy who really wanted to be great though....so while his stupid bread and sexy wife might keep him happy in a sense....he is a disapointment in his basketball career....considering his expectations and sucess in college....

Nah, I was just joking even though both of those things remain true. Grant had the skills to be one of the greatest the game had ever seen. Injuries truly derailed his career.

Yeah if he stayed in Toronto, they would have made some noise because the East was so weak back then.

If Grant Hill stayed healthy in Orlando, that would've been a nice duo in the weak east as well. On top of that if Duncan signed with Orlando that same FA year too they potentially had a dynasty going there.

In Houston, I can't say much he had his chance there but couldn't do squat.

iverson

well not really. He started off in philly and one of the best players ever. Went to denver which wasnt too bad. Detroit was actually rocking for a while until the coach decided to put him on the bench. Memphis was terrible, for the 3 games lol. Philly seemed ok but his daughter got a mysterious illness. Not sure if they were telling the truth on that one but it didnt seem too bad. Most of the **** is overblown imo.

Most of the guys being listed here were headcases or selfish players thats why they havent won not because they were unlucky. Grant Hill though, has definitely been unlucky. Who knows how we would be talking about him if hadnt had so many injury problems.

This has to be Marcus Camby. I still think he's the one guy in the league who should get an automatic pass to the all-star game for one year just because of what he's done defensively over his career.
He always gets injured; he's often been the defensive anchor on a team that wasn't quite good enough to reach the promised land; and he's still a rebounding and blocking machine at age 38. Per 36 minutes, this guy still averaged nearly 14 rebounds per game last year.
O.J. Mayo would be my future pick. He looked awesome his rookie year then took a perennial dip afterward. He left the Grizzlies just as they were becoming a force to be reckoned with, and now he'll have to deal with the eventual downfall of the Mavericks. Hopefully he'll become the next Michael Finley there.

Not sure if you remember, but Camby made it to the finals with the NYK in '99, do he is in a similar position as Malone/Stockton.

Excuse me if I had the creativity to pick guys who are still active in the NBA. And making it to the finals with the Knicks plays into my argument that he was the defensive anchor on teams that weren't quite good enough to reach the promised land (an NBA title - no exceptions).

Bill Walton, Sam Bowie, MJ stopping Glyde (then him winning in Houston), the Lakers series, Brandon Roy, Greg Oden....yikes! If we looked at the year this thread was made...who was the most promising team in the NBA?? Now it's the Thunder, lead by the guy they passed on.
