Being drafted into the NBA is a dream come true for most prospects. But what if you've worked your whole life for something, only to be put in a situation that hinders your ability to succeed? That's what happened to a few players in this year's draft.
Sometimes a player is put in a situation where his path to significant minutes is blocked by an established veteran. Other times players are drafted much higher than projected, putting unreasonable expectations on their ability. Or there's always the possibility of being forced into a situation where a player is forced to play a position to which he's not entirely suited.
In a nutshell, that's what happened to five players in the 2012 NBA draft. Thriving in the NBA is difficult enough for most prospects, and it won't be any easier for these five players, because their put in a position that might stunt their growth.
