Is Tyson Chandler a bust?
 
He was drafted No. 2 overall in the 2001 draft. His career averages are

8.7ppg
9.0rpg
1.5bpg

I know he has recently rejuvenated his career and made the all star team some how this season averaging 12/11 and won DPOY last year.

What do you make of Tyson Chandler? Bust or not?

He is a defensive anchor of a championship team, defensive player of the year, starter of USA team, what do you think?

Not every draft can have Lebron/Wade/Melo, hell most of them nowadays don't have as much talent as they used to.

This whole "bust" shit is getting out of hand, every #1-2 pick that isn't some Top 25 GOAT talent is labeled a bust for some reason.

Yes but he was non existent for the first 10 years of his career. People are quick to label players drafted in the lottery a bust after the first 2-4 years of their career. If you only look at Chandlers first 10 years i'd say he was a bust but if you look at the last 2 years he was a decent player so that is why i started this discussion.

Have you seen that '01 draft pool? Probably one of the worst drafts in history.

He wasn't non existent, he was solid.

And don't forget Gilbert Arenas (even though he's a loose cannon)

If Tyson Chandler is a bust, then what would Kwame be called?

ok, lets say he was solid, but his numbers in his first 10 years dont reflect a #2 picks numbers. I am not hating on Chandler but if I asked you 3 years ago if he was a bust you wouldn't hesitate to say yes.

Numbers tell only 1/2 of the story and simple defining his whole career on numbers is dumb as hell.
