Williams was drafted 5th overall in the 2006 NBA draft by the Atlanta Hawks, ahead of Brandon Roy and Rudy Gay. Since then, he's also played for the Kings, Timberwolves, and the Celtics. It's debatable, but it looks like his best season was his rookie year when he averaged just under 19 minutes per game, 5.5 ppg, and 5.4 rpg.
Some may argue that it's too early to call him a bust, but in my mind he was the 5th pick overall and he hasn't produced very much. Maybe, he'll turn his career around playing under Coach Karl. If not... I'd call him a Sports Card Bust.
Then again... at least this guy is still playing in the NBA. Shawne Williams who was drafted by the Indiana Pacers with the 17th pick in the same draft was recently charged with driving under a suspended license.
Which brings the question... which is the bigger bust? On one hand, Shawne is out of the NBA and Shelden is still playing. But on the flip side, Shawne wasn't a top 5 draft choice and Shelden was. It's these kind of questions that made C+C Music Factory create songs like, "Things That Make You Go Hmmmm".
