The University of North Carolina has produced basketball players such as Michael Jordan, James Worthy, Bob McAdoo, Antawn Jamison, Jerry Stackhouse and Rasheed Wallace. These players, along with many others, have had good, if not great, NBA careers coming out of Chapel Hill.
Despite the fine careers, UNC has produced plenty of NBA Draft busts, players who were simply drafted too high. Some have had mediocre careers, and others fizzled out of the NBA extremely quickly. Some, like Vince Carter, had fine individual careers, but failed to win in the NBA.
Many NBA draft busts from North Carolina have been in recent years, and it is good to see players such as Harrison Barnes, Tyler Zeller and John Henson return to school for another year of collegiate ball. After all, just one more year of college could help these players avoid the label of "bust" and help them avoid landing in articles like this one.
