Take it for what it's worth, but another site out there on the InterWeb says Adam Morrison – of Gonzaga fame – is the biggest bust in NBA history.

The article published on Real Clear Sports this week came up with a list of Top 10 College Players Who Failed in the Pros. The Mead grad was right on top of the list. Or the bottom, depending on how you look at it.

The nation's leading scorer in his junior season at Gonzaga at 28.1 ppg, Morrison was selected third overall by the Charlotte Bobcats in 2006. Says RCS:

"After a somewhat promising beginning to his NBA career, Morrison lost his starting job halfway through his rookie season, mostly due to his low shooting percentage and poor defense."

Biggest bust or not, Morrison, who has been seen recently hooping it up with players at Gonzaga, has two NBA title rings. He earned both of them while in Los Angeles with the Lakers. Morrison worked out with the Washington Wizards at the start of this season but was cut before the season began.

Real Clear Sports Top 10 Busts:

1. Adam Morrison (Gonzaga)

2. Ed O'Bannon (UCLA)

3. Steve Alford (Indiana)

4. LaRue Martin (Loyola of Chicago)

5. Walter Berry (St. Johns)

6. Mateen Cleaves (Michigan State)

7. Marcus Fizer (Iowa State)

8. Keith Lee (Memphis State)

9. Bo Kimble (Loyola Marymount)

10. Pearl Washington (Syracuse)
