What does it take for the 1st/2nd pick to escape bust status?

    LeBron has definitely lived up to expectations and so has Yao after last year's dominance. What does a player technically have to do to escape this label? Is it purely statistical?

    It isn't merely about stats. But I think that you have to make a big impact for your team in order to not be considered a bust. Teams that are picking 1st or 2nd are expecting a franchise player they can build a team around. They aren't expecting the player to be merely a role player or to turn out like Olowokandi.
