worse-shaun livingston, he had such promise and high potential, not even doing that well in euroleague. would also say brand but its to early to tell until he gets a good lot of a season under his belt with a new team.

Wade is better or the same at this point but I'd lean towards better. Amare has been worse IMO. Brand has been worse but its too soon to tell.

Chris Mihm was a good center, then he had to have a ton of surgeries on his ankle, now he can barely move out there.

Um, has there ever been a time in NBA history that a player has had a surgery and become better?

He didn't get better. He is the same player he was before the surgery. :shrug:

I know this was baseball but Tommy John surgery made Eric Gagne's career

I'l say Amare with his microfracture.. Came back and had developed a consistent free throw percentage and a Jump shot from 20 feet,, (Notice those are only offensive perks/he could have learned to box out/ hey now that hes out again and suns prolly wont make the playoffs maybe he can improve his Defensive part of the game)
