Seeing as morrison was the #3 pick, its got to be him. Though Shelden was taken 5th wasn't he. Hmm. Tough. They all have been very dissapointing.

may has just been pathetic, redick i think still has some good things coming for him, morrison is just bad, he really seems to play with no confidence like he did in college. and i havnt got to see shelden play that much, but from the little i have seen and heard he appears to be a bust.

Do either of you actually read a thread before you post?

Everyone is quite aware of these two's shortcomings, which is probably why the OP wasn't asking about them.

I'd say Morrison, Shelden is close behind though.

Sheldin Williams but he did marry Candice.

I'd say Willaims. Morrison may come to life in LA, but will not be worthy of #3 pick, Reddick is finally getting playing time and isn't playing that bad, and May is just getting injury after injury, so I can't judge if he is a bust or just injury prone yet.

yeah. the thing with shelden, is the dude busts his ***, turns out, hes just not that good. one of those classic examples of college succes not translating to the NBA. He was a beast at Duke, buthe was a shocker where he was taken at 5, and he just wasn't warranted of that high of a pick, if a pick at all.

Wasn't Redick taken 11th? Anyway to the point it has to be Morrison

Shelden Williams showed a lot of promise when he was given minutes. The dude flat out can rebound the ball down low. In theory if given minutes the guy can put up 12pts, 8reb-10rebs 1.5 blocks a game. Not worthy of a number 5 pick but definitely can be a nice role player on the right team. (Not really a bust, just drafted too high)

Adam Morrison to me is a bust, number 3 pick overall... when he played.. poor fg%, horrid defense etc. Just bad combination at SG/SF. He'd be lucky to turn into Matt Barnes or even Mike Dunleavy at this point. Shoot, he'd be lucky to become 10% of what Wally Szerbiak is now... :) (BUST)

JJ Reddick... eh... not a bust, just a shooter off the bench, that's what he is, plain and simple. He's not in the right system in the league.

Sean May is a bust for sure. That dude STOLE MONEY!!!

Morrison taken 3rd in 06
Willians taken 5th in 06
Redick taken 11th in 06
May taken 13th in 05.

So yeah, Redick was taken 11th.

O I was just wondering because someone said he was taken 14th but I wasn't really curious enough to bother looking it up. thanks though

Shelden just had the "bad" luck of being taken wayyyy to high by the Hawks.

Greg Oden!
Lil Wayne: “Greg Oden Is A Bust”
Greg Oden is a bust. He’s gotta show me something, man. I don’t get it. At what point in time was he dominant? I’ve never seen it. You’ve never seen it. Maybe NBA officials know something we don’t. That’s all I can figure. Maybe somebody on that staff has seen something we haven’t. But until he shows me something, I’m gonna declare him a bust. Damn shame, too.

Sean May is easily the biggest bust in that group, considering he's too out of shape to play. He needs to take after Glen Davis a little more.

Finally, Adam Morrison is not a bust. Expectations were never high for him, and he's fitting in right where he was expected to be: the reserve squad.

You shouldn't call Oden a bust because of his first season. Robert Parish had a crappy first season. Even after all his injuries, Oden leads all rookies in double doubles. He has had some impressive games. As he gets acclimated to the NBA, he'll have more impressive games. I see Oden eventually averaging about 10-12 points, 12-13 rebounds, and 3 blocked shots per game.

Sean may was also, of the 4 drafted the latest. Of the players taken after him, only Granger (which is just one of those cases of a guy falling for injury reasons and blossoming, happens like every year), nate robinson, maxiell, lee and garcia have really panned out. So he's I don't think its that bad. Not a good pick, but when i think of bust, i think, man he was taken way too high, there were so many better options, which in this case, there really weren't

Stop picking on Kwame; it wasn't his fault he was drafted 1st. There was never any type of hype surrounding him to begin with. It was Jordan's fault that Kwame and Morrison were drafted so high.

Actually the Bobcats drafted him with the assumption that he would become a go to scorer for us...yeah I know the idea sounds ********, but that's what MJ thought. And he's not even on the "reserve squad" he's a scrub. A reserve actually plays...Morrison doesn't, and for good reason.

You don't draft a guy #3 overall with the expectation that he will be a reserve.

I would say Adam because he dominated in College and really seemed as if he had the skills to translate to the NBA which out of the 3 really is the only 1 who had those skills, because Shelden is undersized, J.J is too and not very quick, cant really make for his own shot, and sean may was never really in shape

I can agree with this. I would consider moving May to 2nd, but splitting hairs because their both busts. I tend to agree with everyone else on JJ, he really hasn't had much of a chance to prove himself, so I wouldn't really label him a bust as of yet.

Ugh...I hated that draft...I thought Roy was the best player in the draft before it even happened. I should be an advisor to MJ, apparently I know more than him.
