Default NBA curses! Cruel coincidences or spooky voodo?

That's a stupid thread title. I've said it before anyone else can.

I was thinking about some players on the bus home from work today. I was thinking, if Bobby Hurley was never in that car crash would we rank him above Nash right now? Bobby Hurley was after all i nan uptempo Sacramento system that could have let him develop into a Nash type of player.
Here's some youtube footage of Hurley killing the Fab 5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdXmRDevSgs
He was largely compared to John Stockton, but a lot flashier, and with a lot more speed. (not on the same level defensively)

It got me thinking about the other young Duke point guards that have injured themselves, and probably ruined their careers.
-Bobby Hurley, had a great rookie season, then was injured in a car crash, never to be the same player again. Hurley was better than Hill while at Duke. Amazing player.
-Jay Williams messed himself up after his rookie season in a motorbike accident.
-Shaun Livingston (committed to play at Duke) wasted his knee this season, and will probably never play again.

The Celtics and their small forwards:
-Len Bias drug overdose
-Reggie Lewis heart attack
-Larry Bird retirement because of chronic back pain.
-Paul Pierce stabbing

Courtesy of Psileas:
Add the curse of the Blazers' centers (draft picks):
-LaRue Martin (probably the worst No1 draft pick ever)
-Arvidas Sabonis (needed to reach 31-32 and have a dozen of operations to play in the NBA)
-Bill Walton (great player, few healthy years)
-Sam Bowie (over MJ...)
-Mychal Thompson (good player, but he was chosen over Larry Bird...)

I hope this doesn't spot Greg Oden's career, as well.

Are these coincidences?

Well he would of been a Dukie. Dude would still have injured himself if he went to Duke, he's rail thin.

Wh yshould I not include Livingston? Point guard with seemingly boundless potential (much like Hurley and Williams) and he was going to go to Duke. Maybe that was enough for the curse to take affect.

Don't mock me by making some stupid joke about Anfernee Hardaway. Hardaway was an All NBA Team member, none of my 3 guys ever really did anything in the league.

Try make a good thread, have a goon ruin it in the very first reply...... great.

Good work Psileas, I forgot about Portland's crap with bigmen. Nice to see someone contribute to this thread instead of laughing at some moronic joke by one of the worst posters on ISH.

Curse of the Boston GM's, McHale, Bird, Ainge. Ruining franchises left right and center. Why won't someone give Robert Parish a go at it.

Curses don't exist. It's all mental.

I agree with Milkman about Livingston. The day he found out he was lottery material, he picked any good school and committed to it. Truth be told, had not Illinois already had their trio backcourt of Dee, Luther, Deron set, he would've came to Illinois (he refused to come off the bench for a year). The commitment to Duke was weak at best and Duke already had Dockery, Ewing Jr. I don't think Coach K honestly believed Shaun was gonna step foot onto Duke campus.
