    I don't know but I think it's funny when people say "Lebron hasn't scratched the surface of his potential yet". Not saying he can'timprove on little things but statistically...it's not like he's going to ever improve leaps and bounds from what he's doing now. Some people thinkhe's just out there playing on pure athletic ability.

    Co-sign on Stuckey...he may very well prove me wrong but people talk about him like he's a no brainer franchise player. I don't see it.

    Same here. I never understood it to be honest.

    And dude that said Andrea, I don't think anyone really believes his potential is that high (any more).

    I never thought we should have built the team around him. Its too soon right now to try. hopefully he can break out of this. but I never thoughtwe could built him up as a franchise player at least so soon.

    I'll say Stuckey..

    Maybe it's the team, but he definitely shouldn't be starting with Rip & Iverson on the team.

    But umm as far as another player I'll say half the Bulls roster.

    bad picture to try and prove a point my man. that ring disproves your point. he's got a Gold Medal and he contributed more than enough to deserve it.
    He's still an All-Star too.

    At first I didn't totally grasp the question. I had to wonder how you could overrate potential.

    But now that I have a better understanding of what was being asked, I'll go with Oden...

    Ehh DoubleJ's

    I see what you saying, but Beasley to me needs a coach & Wade isn't exactly the player that makes everyone nice around him.

    Beasley got the talent to be good though more like a SF though he don't got that KG drive.
