A bust is a bust is a bust. If a player cannot perform for whatever reason then they are a bust. I mean if a guy gets shot and killed he cannot perform. It may not be fair but reality is reality.
Fact is that teams can scout as to a players technique and medical history to help them avoid medical busts. McNeil from last year is a perfect example. If his back goes out on him this year then the bolts knew very well what they were getting into.
