JR Rider should be mentioned as well. Doubt he's number 1 when you consider guys like Derrick Coleman and others. Still though, he had the talent to become a special player. Just was a complete idiot and always found ways to alienate himself from his team and was constantly in trouble with the law. dumbass.

I was just going to say kwame brown
lol Kwame? he isn't a talent, the guy couldnt peel an orange and feed it to himself without it fumbling to the ground, let alone hold a basketball during a pivot. Look he has the body of a great basketball player, but NOT the talent. this thread should be kept for the athletic freaks and shoulda been good players that either didnt work hard enough, smoked too much weed, or were criminals.
just read an article about JR rider and jason kidd last week.. two cats from the bay area.. different backgrounds.. a lot of people were saying JR was more athletic and had more upside.. but obviously their careers went in different directions.. we all know what JR got caught up in.. i remember my homie who is a bart cop saw him on the train lookin' tweaked out a couple years back..
