He was an important part of a championship team so I would say he is not a bust.

Sure. Why not? This is ISH, where championship defensive anchors, Olympic gold medalists and DPoYs are draft busts.

Kwame was severely overrated but he has been a solid role player.

Yes you could say that they were solid role players but to be drafted as high as they were, wouldn't you say that they were a bust or a huge disappointment? If they were drafted say 16-30 then there wouldn't be any hate towards them.

Thank you. Finally someone who gets what I was thinking. Yes Chandler has achieved so much in the past 3 years but do we just forget about the other 9 years of his career where he didn't live up to the expectations of being a number 2 pick? He didnt even average double digit rebounds until his 6th season or double digit points until his 7th season.

Well, that's not reality. There simply isn't that kind of talent to go around. People need to adjust expectations.

He's not a bust. He's arguably the best defensive center in the L and gets you double digit boards. Thats extremely valuable.

You are exactly right. So if a team uses their no. 2 pick on a player who ends up being a role player for the their whole career would you consider them a bust or a disappointment? and btw, Chandler didn't become elite until 3 years ago. How about the 9 years before that? does he get a pass?

People are labeling Beasley a bust now if I'm not mistaken. If he continues the way he is now and somehow makes the all star team 5 years from now do we forget all of a sudden he was a bust?



Basically the point of this thread really is when do we call someone a bust and I used Chandler's career as an example. IMO i would have called Chandler a Bust up until 3 years ago and thought that he was a waste of a no. 2 pick. Since he joined the Mavs and anchored their defense he changed my perception of him.

Tyson Chandler just did something in rebounding for the Knicks that Ewing never did. That's impressive.

No he is not a bust. Tyson was drafted off potential. Alot of those guys were including Kwame, Eddy,& The Kandyman. Gm's had hope they would be good. But someone like Beasley who was expected to be atleast good, just looks likes a decent 6th man. Beasley is the defintion of bust, not Tyson.
