    Carson was good. He just didn't seem to have any heart.

    For some reason, I thought J.J. Stokes would be a great receiver in the NFL.

    After watching him in the 94 Rose Bowl against Wisconsin, I thought the same thing. I couldn't believe the Niners had Stokes and Rice -- I thought they were going to be a better tandem than Swann and Stallworth. Well, Rice might have been better than those two all by himself, but anyways....

    The Single Guy. I thought it had potential. Same with Herman's Head.

    I thought LeBron was overrated. He was great in HS but he was doing it all against 5'10 shooting guards.
    I was also wrong about Mateen Cleaves(I played a game of 1 on 1 after he got cut by the Cavs and I almost won! :D).

    and you were wrong, he is merely vastly overrated

    While no means a flop, Glenn Robinson's pro career was pretty underwhelming. Dude was an absolute f--king stud at Purdue.

    Heck, if I remember correctly, some (well, the ones that didn't value defensive ability) touted "Big Dog" as the best college player since Bird/Magic.

    I was also wrong about his ACT score. I really thought he was going to get over 7.

    I mentioned Robinson on the first page, but you're right. I thought he'd be Magic Redux. He was so goddamned good at Purdue. Couldn't wait till he turned pro. My best friend still gives me shit about my overzealousness about Robinson. Oh well.

    Christian Laettner.

    I thought he'd be a terrific pro.
