I remember Flynn’s claim to fame being his incredible performance in the historical 6OT game against U Conn [Flynn was at Syracuse]; he played 67 minutes, scored 34 points and 11 assists.
He was then drafted number 6 by the Timberwolves right behind Ricky Rubio, who was picked up at number 5 by the Timberwolves. That is pretty much where the great times stopped for Jonny. Sure, he had a respectable rookie season, but it went nearly unnoticed because the Timberwolves were so terrible.
Then, he got injured and had to sit out the beginning of his second season. People can argue that he never fully recovered from his hip injury because he never shot over 36% from the field again.
Next, we have Terrance Williams who was also a lottery pick in the 2009 draft. His final two months during his rookie season on the NJ Nets were promising- he looked like he was going to continue to get better.
Well, Terrance must have thought he could coast on his performance his rookie season because he never really produced after that.
Both guys were lottery picks in the 2009 draft. Both guys were dropped from the Pistons yesterday.
Best of luck to both guys.
