The NBA is a crazy league. Players come in so young, and often so ready for professional basketball. It’s not like other sports like the NFL where you need those years in college to physically develop and learn the game. Often players make the jump at 19 years old and can play with the big boys.
Unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. For some young players, they make the jump and they can’t hang. They should have stayed in school for another year or two and worked on their game. Sometimes it’s a maturity issue and being a professional athlete at age 19 is just too much for some of these young men.
There is a bright side to all of this though. These guys may have 5 or 6 years in the league but they’re still young. There’s still time for them to get it figured out. We’ve put together a list of these guys, the ones who were supposed to do big things but just haven’t yet.
