Same was said of Andrew Bynum, Rashard Lewis, Marbury, Penny Hardaway, Allan Houston, oh wait, how about Gilbert Arenas? Eddy Curry! Amare! LOL Larry Hughes? Lets not forget Juwan Howard. My personal favorite, that Shawn Kemp contract.
Oh, and Jayson Williams was definitely going to be an all star player elsewhere.
You'll see the same mistake this summer with D Howard and Whiteside.
