Top 10 NBA Draft Busts

Ed O’Bannon: #4 NBA Draft Bust

Question: Who is Ed O’Bannon?

1. A car salesman in Henderson, Nevada.
2. The lead plaintiff in a class action lawsuit against the NCAA regarding its failure to compensate former college athletes for the commercial use of their images.
3. A former consensus 1st Team All-American college basketball player who was named the Final Four Most Outstanding Player after leading UCLA to the 1995 National Championship.
4. An NBA bust who recorded only 634 points, 316 rebounds, and 102 assists in 128 career games despite being selected by the New Jersey Nets with the 9th overall pick in the 1995 Draft.

Answer: All of the above. Just to be clear, the four statements apply to the same person, not four different people named Ed O’Bannon.
