his career did not get cut short because of a motorcycle accident outside of his own control. but instead caused by HIM popping wheelies rather than trying to get better in the gym. but the bulls back handful of years

Ralph Sampson was amazing until his knees gave way.

Yeah I don't get that one. He led his team to within 1 game a a ring. And he hardly wasted any talent. His talent was being born 7'5.

I do wonder ... about Robert Horry. I love him, and he accomplished great things during his career. But he never seemed to try very hard. When he was young he was pretty athletic. I think he could have been more than he was.

Exactly my thinking.

These two guys should have simply dominated the NBA if they were hungry enough.

Vince Carter should have been Jordan level.

Lamar should have revolutionized the NBA. A big man with his skillset...sheesh.

Injuries don't count.

you can't really control injuries.
baron davis is certainly the laziest on the list.. he just fell off the freaking map after he got his money in clipper land.. and he had his moments with GSW
