In my opinion, it's easily Kendall Marshall. I bet none of you have even heard of him since draft day.

2012-13 NBA Stats:
0.9 points
27.3% shooting
0.8 assists
5.8 minutes

i would say austin rivers so far because he did get some starting time early on in the season but then started playing poorly. hes had a few good games here and there but overall he hasn't been that good. i dont even think he starts anymore

He doesnt even get PT how can you call him a bust?


Austin Rivers imo. He gets PT so and plays constantly in Hornets game and does bad he's looking busty.

We can put it over 36, still has busty numbers. Austin's playing decent, if he develops his decision making, he can be big. If you watched the Raptors game the other day against the Hornets, he passed up that layup for a turnover :/

Still isn't an accurate reflection, that doesn't guarantee for sure that's how he'll play, mathematically that is but that's not a given that it'll actually go down like that in real life.

Only thing decent bout Rivers is that he's shooting 36% from three but on the flip side shots 34% from the field and 60%(!) from the freethrow line.

Only thing decent bout Rivers is that he's hooting 36% from three but on the flip side shots 34% from the field and 60%(!) from the freethrow line.

Well right now, he's looking like it, in my opinion.

Well in 5 mpg you don't not having much time to get into any type of rhythm or do much at all really. But whatever your opinion.

It wasn't like he was a lottery pick to begin with... A bust means that you had high expectations when drafted that you never lived up to, Marshall never had expectations, and has hardly played. Zeller is more of a bust than Marshall.

13th, sort of lottery, but it's on that border of "players that you don't expect to contribute right now" and the Mavs obviously didn't. They barely play him at all, and since they have Collison they don't really need to. He's the kind of guy that didn't have the skills to be a contributor right away anyway, he'll be a decent role player eventually tho.

Austin Rivers not even close IMO. Everyone thought he and Anthony Davis are the future of the Hornets like some sort of Westbrook/Durant duo. Looks like only Anthony Davis is the future lol and Eric Gordon if he comes back healthy...

17 years breathing his demeanor said more

There have been a few TBH.

I think the most glaring and predicted bust has been Rivers. Doesn't mean he can't get better, but he looks absolutely lost on the court on offense and defense.

As for Marshall, I had little to no expectations out of him.

Robinson is just straight up on the wrong team. If Cousins or Thompson get moved he'd get PT, but that front court is packed.

Austin Rivers without any question and I'm very happy we picked Terrence Ross instead of Rivers or Lamb... oh Lamb could be a good option as well... or maybe not since he didn't get the chance to play in OKC really :S

At this point it's Austin Rivers. He hasn't been a good scorer, has horrible efficiency and he's been one of the main reasons why the Hornets have been terrible this year, because he's not producing. You can't really say that Marshall or Lamb are busts considering they're hardly playing. I'm not sold on Beal being a bust either. I think he'll do better once Wall comes back.
