A lot was expected of BYU center Shawn Bradley when he arrived in the NBA, perhaps because of his size. Bradley was a 7’5 player, who may have had a more respectable career if he were drafted later and the expectations weren’t as high.

Bradley would play 12 seasons in the NBA, averaging 8.1 points, 2.5 blocks and 6.3 rebounds per game.
