    Players you were wrong about!

    Well I had a boring night and have been playing 2k11 and it just got me thinking of players who I thought would be big time players or players I thought would have bigger careers instead of someone drafted near them and haven't really done too much.

    For example, I swore up and down that Emeka Okafor would have a better career then Dwight Howard. *tear*

    Some other players I thought would be studs in the league were Acie Law, Julian Wright and Shelden Williams.

    Now this isn't a baiting thread or anything, so no offence to any teams who have those players on there. I can name several(mostly all) players the Wizards have drafted that suck.

    But what are some players who you thought would be almost guarenteed greatness and never panned out? No shame in this game either, so don't try to act tough like you knew it all along that someone would be horrible! Lol

    And let's leave the last couple years out of this, because I believe some players(Thabeet) can still contribute if their game is worked on.

    Durant, I always knew he would be good, but I never thought he would be able to be as Physical as he is.

    I thought Rondo would be out of the NBA by year 4.....

    he appeared to have zero basketball skill at Kentucky. I kinda missed on that one...

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I remember how pissed my dad was when we took Howard over Emeka. Glad he was wrong.

    I never thought Oden would be a good NBA player, but I actually think my mind has changed. I didn't think he'd be bad because of injuries...but when he does play, he is a top 5 center. Hopefully he can stay healthy.

    I thought Foye would be better than Roy.

    I never thought Love would be nearly as good as he is.

    I loved Luke Jackson...thought he'd have a long career as a shooter.

    I wanted Carney over Redick.

    I thought Julian Wright would be a star.

    I can keep on going...

    Andrea Bargnani. He actually does suck. The only way he'd be a good addition is if it was beside Dwight Howard.
