    Jalen Rose has Fizer as a Top 5 all time bust

    Tonight on ESPN, Jalen listed his top 5 draft bust, put Fizer in the 4 spot. Do you agree?

    Michael Olowokandi '98 Clippers
    Darko Milicic '03 Pistons
    Adam Morrison '06 Bobcats
    Marcus Fizer '00 Bulls
    Nikoloz Tskitishvili '02 Nugggets

    I can't agree. Did those other people even see playtime? MF saw playtime and we playing pretty well until his knee trouble. I can't see him being a top since 98.

    Still can't believe the Pistons picked Milicic. That was the year they won the championship! Imagine that team with D-Wade, Carmelo, or even Chris Bosh.

    As a Bulls fan, I would have to agree with him.

    I hate to admit it, but he would have to be up there very high on the list for me as well.

    That is a joke. There are way bigger busts than Fizer, who I wouldn't even call a bust.

    M. Fizer almost won the 6th man of the year award when he was healthy. He certainly wasn't an all star, but minus the injuries, he could have been a 10-5 guy for most any team I think.

    Fizer is on the list and Sam Bowie is not?

    Not sure how to edit the title of the post but he might have said since a certain year. I was trying to remember all the names so I could wikipedia the years and put it on here.

    Re: Jalen Rose has Fizer as a Top 5 all time bust

    a lot of those players played just as much as Fizer ever did.

    Darco saw time in Orlando and him and Morrison are still in the league, so that's gotta be worth something.

    There are a lot of players that didn't pan out, but I think he was trying to focus on top 5 picks by the look of his list. The NBA has a very high level of drop off after the top 5, the next 5 and everybody else.

    Where is Kwame Brown on that list? He is possibly the biggest #1 overall bust ever.

    I have a feeling it was the last 10 years or something. That makes more sense, but look at K.Brown's stats at #1 and tell me Fizer was a bigger bust.

    Kwame Brown Statistics - Basketball-Reference.com

    or how about Stromile Swift at #2:

    Stromile Swift Statistics - Basketball-Reference.com
    2000 NBA Draft - Basketball-Reference.com

    or S. Livingston at #4:

    Shaun Livingston Statistics - Basketball-Reference.com

    Fizer would have been a lot better without the injury. Did he live up to potential? No. Was he a bust? No.

    Its always funny that "LISTS" only include names in the last 10 years.
