Let's get one thing straight. Isaiah Rider wasn't a complete waste of talent. The guy had some solid years in the NBA, but when he entered the 1993 NBA Draft, Rider was expected to be a superstar caliber player, not the everyday middle-of-the-road player that he eventually became. In his senior year with UNLV, Isaiah earned the Big West Conference Player of the Year award while also receiving a suspension for supposedly having someone cheat on a test for him. In many ways, the contrast between skill on the court and failures off of it is what encompassed Rider's career. Yeah, he was good but if it weren't for all the side problems, could you imagine how great he would've been?
