Draft 'Bust' Label

Tonight's Lakers Vs Knicks, showcased two top draft pick centers carrying the 'Bust' label.
In a recent poll of N.B.A. players by Sports Illustrated, Brown was voted the player who got the least out of the most talent. Curry was third.
“I think it would have taught us guys how to play without the ball,” Kwame said (on he and Curry). “Especially coming out of high school, you’re not ready to carry a threat on offense like most of the guards are. It just gives you a different mentality, watching college guys move and play without the ball. I think that would have helped all of our careers out a lot.”
