Kwame Brown: Wasted Talent or Stardom to Come?

Stephen J. Brooks of the Black Sports Network has an excellent piece on Kwame Brown, the free agent-to-be who most media members and fans have lambasted since he was suspended by the Wizards in the playoffs. Brooks takes a more balanced approach, noting a parallel between Brown and Jermaine O'Neal, who was similarly lambasted after his few NBA seasons didn't materalize in stardom. It will be interesting to see how much Brown earns as a free agent, and how well he performs at his next stop. Unrealistic expectations, injuries, and being a "Michael Jordan guy" after Jordan left seem to have impaired Brown's development, but with a fresh start somewhere else next season, he might just end up having the last laugh.
