One of the hardest parts of an NBA general manager's job is trying to predict which incoming rookies will end up being stars and which will be major busts. The 2012-13 NBA season has its fair share of young rookies who look like busts so far.
Granted, it is still very early in the careers of these players. It's probably not even fair to judge them at this point, but it is just something that comes with their chosen profession.
Please keep in mind that these players are being judged as disappointing based on their pre-draft expectations. Some who appear to be more disappointing on this list may be performing better than others who are higher because they are underperforming more based on what was expected of them.
