Now that the college basketball season is officially over, the country’s top players are finally ready to think about transitioning to the NBA. Some are ready for the professional spotlight, while others could use a little more seasoning before making the big leap.
It inevitably happens every year. Players declare themselves eligible for the draft, get selected and go on to prove they clearly were not prepared for the NBA.
For every Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant who succeeds with minimal college experience, there is an Adam Morrison or Hasheem Thabeet who could have spent an extra season honing his skills.
So, who are the potential 2013 draft busts? Frankly, it could be anyone. But some players stick out as not being ready for a bigger stage.
Some have already declared themselves for the draft, while others are expected to put their name in the draft pool. Either way, they would be better off taking advantage of their college eligibility while it lasts.
