Remember when the clippers had Miles, Odom, Magette and Richardson? I guess all were wasted talent.
Adding to the list...

Tim Thomas
Eddy Curry

Shawn Kemp - could have been a super-star, but outside of couple years of all-star performances, under-achieved his whole career. Started declining in his late 20s when he had weight and drug issues.

One of my favorite players, but I definitely agree
Eddy Curry
Lamar Odom and Vince Carter are the first to mind.
Lebron James

When it's all said and done i wouldn't be that surprised.

He still has so much time to develop, but he really needs to start working on his post game.. Starting from the top of the key and charging full speed to the basket or pulling up will never be affective in crunch time. Just depends on how much time he's willing to put in.

He would be unstoppable if he could get a solid post game
I'm sure a couple of these have been talked about but, Derrick Coleman, Eddy Curry and Baron Davis are 3 recent one's come to mind. Coleman could have been an all time great if he gave a crap and Curry had a great low post game and could have been a beast if he didn't care about food more than basketball. Davis was absolutely un-guardable when he wanted to be, but never seemed to have the desire. It's hard to rag on a guy who has a title and pretty impressive stat lines, but Rasheed Wallace has always been a guy who I think has underachieved. The guy had it all. Low post game, mid range jumper, long range jumper, D, passing, athleticism, length etc. He always had the potential, IMO, to be a more athletic Duncan.

Oh and And Earl "The Goat" Manigault, even though he never made it to the NBA.

As a Kings fan I feel so privileged that we got him in his prime
