Tyson Chandler was an incredibly disappointing player for the first 9 years of his career. He's completely turned his career around in the last 3 years, which is awesome. But he was awful during his year with the Bobcats, and his career could have gone either way, luckily he went to the Mavs and he has turned into an all star. But let's not act like he wasn't a complete disappointment for 9 of his 12 years in his career.

I think it depends on your opinion of a bust. If a #2 draft pick doesn't last the 7 years with the team who drafted him, I'd say most of the time that's a bust (the exception being when they team has got significantly better by trading him - rather than signing someone to play their position, like Chandler with Ben Wallace).
