Actually, Jay Williams did play one year before his career ending injury. And for a rookie PG he wasn't awful with averages of 9.5 ppg/4.7apg/2.6 rpg in only 26.1 minutes or 13.1/6.4/3.6 in Per 36 numbers. But yes, his career wasn't what most Bulls fans expected or hoped for.

if your considering jay williams, you have to consider len bias, which you shouldn't, neither should be considered busts, neither should be on the list...and kwame, who is a bust, isn't the biggest bust ever at #1, he's still a starter in the nba...kwame is a top 15 center in the nba currently...biggest busts ever are top 10 pick guys who can't make a career playing basketball in the nba due lack of intelligence, lack of desire and/or talent, skill level

In my opinion Thabeet is not a bust..because he was a project after all
he was not NBA ready, he's got potential
and grizz went for it with 2nd overall which i felt it was stupid to pick a project instead of nba ready players like evans

Jay is not a bust but it was disappointing seeing him leave after career ending injury
i did state disappointment

Morrison was the superstar prior to his nba career lol
that i felt was a bust =)

I guess we are only going back a handful of drafts. The NBA did exist before 2003.

#1 picks, you have to mention Pervis Ellison and Michael Olawakandi. At least Kwame has carved out a long career.

Sam Bowie has to be mentioned as they passed on Michael Jordan to take him.

Danny Ferry anyone?

I think Joe Alexander gives Rafael Araujo a run for his money at the #8 spot.

#1 Kwame Brown or Michael Olowokandi
#2 Darko Milicic or Shawn Bradley
#3 Adam Morrison or Christian Laettner
#4 Marcus Fizer
#5 Nikoloz Tskitishvili or Jonathan Bender
#6 Dajuan Wagner, DerMarr Johnson, or Bryant Reeves
#7 Bobby Hurley, Chris Mihm, or Eddie Griffin
#8 Rafael Araujo, Adonal Foyle, or DeSagana Diop
#9 Samaki Walker, Michael Sweetney, or Ed O'Bannon
#10 Saer Sene, or Luke Jackson

Way more bust players than I was expecting in the top 10.

Ok, HORSE **** on Jay Williams being the biggest bust at #2. Give the guy some break, he got hurt. That's not like playing your career and still being horrible like some guys i can think of like hmmmm, Hasheem Tabit or Darko Millic. So yea, i think i guy that gets sent to the D League his rookie year, is more of a bust then a guy that gets hurt, and actually produced for the team as a rook.

Be Nice to Bradley, atleast hewas useful his first few years in the league. Replace him with HASHEEM THABEET

And replace #10 with ACIE LAW
