NOTE: My AOL e-mail is currently inaccessible, so please e-mail only my 
hotmail account.  Thank you.

NOTE #2: There has been a growing demand for me to make my roster file 
accessible because of how time consuming it is to manually update 
rosters with (or without) this guide.  I also have access to the online 
server and can provide people with the online roster updates that add 
players to them (they added 17 players in their latest update, and you 
can only CAP ten, so do the math on that).  I have explored using 
gaming devices (Max Drive, Sharkport, etc) to distribute my file but it 
is just too time consuming and a pain, not to mention I’m not very 
interested in paying money so other people can use my work.  So, my 
solution is…
IF A PERSON SENDS ME THEIR MEMORY CARD AND FIVE DOLLARS, I WILL SEND IT 
BACK TO THEM WITH MY ROSTER FILE ADDED.  The reason for sending the 
money is I will be shipping your card back to you via UPS.  Will I 
profit off of this?  Marginally, but I’m also providing a service, and 
it’s much cheaper for you than spending 25 to 30 dollars on those rip-
off devices mentioned above.  If interested in this offer, e-mail me 
for the details.  Also please specify which game you want rosters for, 
since I also perform this service for MVP Baseball 2005.

NOTE #3: When you ship your memory card, do not use a normal envelope.  
Spend a few extra cents and get a padded envelope.  Spend a few extra 
cents on insuring your package.  It is well worth avoiding a scenario 
where your memory card is stolen or damaged in transit.  I WILL NOT 
REPLACE DAMAGED OR STOLEN MEMORY CARDS (unless I am the direct cause of 
damage or theft).  I am sensitive to my fans, but I am a lot more 
sensitive to my own pocket.  I have had one person lose their memory 
card because they placed it in a 37-cent envelope (and I am presuming 
it was stolen by a postal processor since the envelope had a very 
precise rip), and I would like it to be the last.  Do yourselves a 
favor and protect yourself from any such inconvenience.  I know if I 
lost my memory card I would flip out, not because they have a monetary 
value, but because I’ve invested literally HUNDREDS, IF NOT THOUSANDS 
OF HOURS of my time into the various files on them.

NOTE #4: For those who are fearful of sending their memory card, or 
would be inconvenienced if they were without it for an extended period, 
I am now offering to purchase a memory card for you as long as you pay 
the fee.

NOTE #5: THESE SERVICES ARE ONLY AVAILABLE FOR PLAYSTATION 2.  I cannot 
provide roster files for X-Box, X-Box 360, PC, or any other applicable 
platform.

I. Introduction

Welcome to the Player Rating FAQ, written by Rashidi.  The purpose of 
this FAQ is to update the ratings of the players in the game, to make 
them as accurate as possible, as well as to represent what they have 
accomplished during the 2005-2006 season, and to educate readers on NBA 
history.

Any updates to player ratings or major changes to the FAQ will be 
listed in the Updates section.  Check it whenever a new version comes 
out.

Now, what do the ratings do?

Overall Rating – The numerical average of the player’s total collection 
of abilities. Not all ratings are equal.  Some affect overall more than 
others, and some don’t affect it at all.  Some ratings are also more 
important to certain player positions than others, and thus have more 
of an impact on overall.

Close Shot – Two-point shooting accuracy (inside the paint).

Medium Shot – Two-point shooting accuracy (outside the paint).

3pt Shot – Three-point shooting accuracy.

Free Throw – Free Throw shooting accuracy.

Layup – Layup accuracy, frequency, and creativity.

Dunk – Dunk accuracy, frequency, and creativity.

Dunk Range – The distance from which a player can dunk.
 
Dunk Standing – Tall players can dunk when underneath the basket 
regardless of a low dunk rating.

Ball Handling – Determines how effective a player will be at using 
Isomotion crossovers.  A higher rating also makes it harder to steal 
the ball from the player.

Pass – Determines the accuracy and speed of passes made by the player.  
A higher rating also makes it harder to steal passes from the player.

Offense Clutch – Determines how much better a player will perform 
offensively in clutch situations (The 4th Quarter and OT).
  
Shoot or Pass – This rating determines how frequently a player will 
look to shoot when they have the ball.  A high rating means they will 
look for their shot, while a low rating means they will usually pass 
off.

Post Offense – Effectiveness of offensive post moves.

Post Defense – Effectiveness of defending a player in the post.

Defense – 

Block – Ability to block the opponent’s shot.

Steal – Ability to steal the ball from the opponent, or pick off a 
pass.

Defense Clutch  – Determines how much better a player will perform 
defensively in clutch situations (The 4th Quarter and OT).

RebOff – Ability to grab offensive rebounds.

RebDef – Ability to grab defensive rebounds.

Speed – How fast the player runs down the court.

Stamina – The rate of which players grow tired.

Durability – Resistance to injury.  Players with low Durability will 
suffer injuries more frequently, and the injuries will me more serious.

Defensive Awareness – Determines how effective a player will execute in 
defensive plays.

Offensive Awareness – Determines how effective a player will execute in 
offensive plays.

Shot Close Tendency – How often the CPU will attempt close shots with a 
player.

Shot Med Tendency – How often the CPU will attempt med shots with a 
player.

Shot 3PT Tendency – How often the CPU will attempt 3pt shots with a 
player.

Drive Tendency – How often the CPU will attempt to drive with a player.

Dunk Tendency - How often the CPU will attempt dunks with a player.

VI. The ratings

Ratings will be done in descending order, from highest overall, to 
lowest overall.  This should work best, because the top players are the 
ones most of you will want to edit first.  Doing it by team is bad, 
because players change teams a lot, especially in the offseason.

If you want to find the ratings for specific players, Ctrl + F is your 
best friend.  Seriously.  If you ever complain about not being able to 
find something in an FAQ, it means you are computer illiterate, because 
Ctrl + F is very easy.  Press the Ctrl key.  Hold it.  Then press F.  
Then enter the name of something you are searching for.  Make sure you 
can spell it correctly.

Notes: There are only a few African born players in the NBA.  Steve 
Nash is one of them, as he was born in South Africa.  Everybody’s 
favorite non-wrestler/hockey player (like there’s a difference) 
Canadian was named MVP of the league last season (though it really 
should have gone to Tim Duncan or Shaq).  To break away for a moment, 
just imagine how dominant Phoenix would be if they had Duncan or Shaq 
playing next to Marion and Amare.  They’d be the most devastating 
frontcourts of all-time (even better than the hall of fame trio of 
Bird/McHale/Parish), and I’d certainly take a frontcourt like that over 
Nash with Marion and Amare playing out of position.  Not only is Nash 
the lowest scoring player to ever win MVP, there are plenty of better 
PGs who were never MVP, notably Isiah Thomas, Walt Frazier, John 
Stockton, Gary Payton, and Jason Kidd (it’s worth noting that all these 
guys are also excellent defenders, something Nash is not).  When all is 
said and done, Amare Stoudemire can count Nash’s MVP as one of his own 
(yes, I’m saying Amare will win an MVP somewhere along the line), and I 
guess we should count Karl Malone’s two MVPs as two Stockton MVPs to 
put things in perspective.  Not to take anything away from Nash’s MVP, 
but that’s just how things are.  Its funny thinking back that Nash was 
a third string PG behind Jason Kidd and Kevin Johnson in his first 
stint with the Suns.  When he arrived in Dallas, he broke out at the 
same time as Nowitzki, transforming Dallas from pitiful to great.  Last 
year I lauded the Suns for signing Nash rather than throwing everything 
they had at Kobe, but even I had no idea just how successful this move 
was going to be.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05NJN1D.HTM
Notes: Nicknamed “Ason Kidd” (because he has no J).  The only other 
players in NBA history to put up assist and rebound numbers like Kidd 
are Magic Johnson, and Oscar Robertson.  That’s the main reason why 
people are making a big deal about this LeBron character.  Jason Kidd 
was actually the original LeBron James, he was packing the house in 
high school the same way, but that was before ESPN covered such events.  
Kidd had NBA level court vision as far back as the 8th grade.  If Kidd 
retired today, he’d make the Hall of Fame.  Not bad for “a PG that 
can’t shoot”.  Kidd has been named to the All-NBA First team five 
times.  The only PGs who’ve been named to more are Magic Johnson, Bob 
Cousy.  It’s a true shame that Kenyon Martin forced the Nets to dump 
him (due to his outrageous contract demands), but they’ve done a great 
job retooling the team.  They are a quality big man away from being 
title contenders again, but Kidd has a habit of making average 
teammates appear great *coughs in Kenyon Martin’s general direction* so 
the Nets should be fine.  Nenad Krstic was only 21 years old but did 
very well for the Nets last year, and Kidd should be able to build on 
the success Marc Jackson had in Philly last year.  In all, Kidd is the 
cog that makes New Jersey run, and the only place he’ll be going is 
Brooklyn when the Nets move there.

Notes: Pretty well traveled… six teams in his first six years.  Hit it 
big in Minnesota when Terrell Brandon went down, similar to how Troy 
Hudson hit it big when Billups left.  Larry Brown made him a very 
different player.  He brought Billups (a shoot first guard) under 
control, which was a main reason why the Pistons won the championship.  
Who was the last player that won NBA Finals MVP before making an all-
star team?  Detroit’s Joe Dumars.  Billups had a career high .442 FG% 
and .426 3PT% last year in what was his best season.  With Flip 
Saunders replacing Larry Brown, Billups and the Pistons have improved 
their offensive scheme, and still retain their defensive edge that has 
made them great.  They are currently the best team in the league.  
Billups is averaging career highs in points and assists, has kept his 
shooting percentages up, and is most likely going to make his first 
all-star team.

Notes: B-Diddy got traded to Golden State, and the team had an amazing 
turnaround.  They ended up becoming better than many of the teams that 
made the playoffs, and as long as they stay healthy, they will 
undoubtedly get there next year (so long, Memphis).  Davis is also 
usually among the worst FT shooting guards in the league, but last year 
he shot 76% from the line.  If he truly has gained a stroke, it will 
make him that much more dangerous considering how physical he is 
compared to other PGs.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05NYK2D.HTM
Notes: The older cousin of Sebastian Telfair.  Marbury was somewhat 
unfairly criticized when Jason Kidd took the Nets to the Finals.  
Marbury never got to play with Van Horn, Kittles, and Martin healthy, 
and he never had Jefferson, Collins, or MacCulloch on his team either.  
Of course, the fact that it took the addition of Amare to get the Suns 
back to the playoffs should also say something… Isiah Thomas is 
currently trying to build the Knicks around Marbury.  The problem is, 
it’s hard to build around someone who doesn’t generally make his 
teammates better.  Isiah seemingly trades away anybody who shows any 
semblance of chemistry with Marbury (Keith Van Horn, Michael Doleac, 
Kurt Thomas), so one has to wonder if he actually has some sort of 
grand vision when he brings in another guard that likes to shoot a lot 
(Jamal Crawford), and there is speculation that Marbury will start at 
SG this season, if the Knicks can acquire a PG.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05SAS1D.HTM
Notes: French.  That gives him some points in my book, but he needs 
more assists. Good scoring PG, average distributor.  Still, most PGs 
struggle in their first year or two in the league, and Parker thus far 
has not struggled as much in comparison (Gary Payton for example, did 
not score in double figures until his third season). Got upset that the 
Spurs wanted Kidd, which would have meant a bench role for Parker.  The 
French do like “whine”, but given Kidd’s health problems and large 
contract, it looks like staying with Parker at the helm was the right 
move, and he could be in San Antonio for a very long time.  And yes, he 
is related to the founder of “Parker Brothers” (George S. Parker).

Notes: Bibby put himself on the map by torching the Lakers in the 
playoffs.  He’s one of many PGs to abuse the Lakers via the pick and 
roll.  Don’t be fooled by Bibby’s low assist total.  He shares the 
court with Webber, Divac, Miller, and Christie (who all rank very high 
in assists at their positions), and he has a Sixth Man of the Year 
(Bobby Jackson) backing him up.  When he was with the Grizzlies, Bibby 
was averaging 8+ assists per game.  Then he was traded for Jason 
Williams.  What did J-Will do with the Kings?  He only averaged 5 apg.  
What is J-Will doing now that he’s not with the Kings, who diminished 
his assist total?  He’s averaging 8+, just like Bibby was.

Notes: Considered the best pure PG in the draft, but his size is a 
concern.  He’s the shoo-in for Rookie of the Year so far, as he’s 
putting up great numbers and leading the hapless Hornets to a lot more 
wins than they had last year.  His rookie season looks eerily similar 
to the one Jason Kidd had ten years ago.

Notes: Cassell put himself on the map by burying the Knicks in Game 3 
of the 94 NBA Finals during his rookie year.  Won two championships in 
his first two years.  Took New Jersey to the playoffs more times than 
Stephon Marbury (1-0).  Had a career year in 03-04, making his first 
all-star appearance, and the All-NBA Second team, but it looks like it 
can only go downhill from here.  Cassell’s nagging injuries eventually 
cost Minnesota in the Conference Finals, and with Troy Hudson injured, 
the T-Wolves had to depend on Darrick Martin.  With a healthy Cassell 
and Hudson, the T’Wolves are favorites to win the championship, and had 
Cassell not gone down, they quite possibly could have been the champs 
last season.

Notes: After playing last season next to combo guard Jamal Crawford, 
Hinrich is again paired with a combo guard.  Why the emphasis on combo 
guard?  Hinrich is also a combo guard.  It should create some 
interesting scenarios, as Hinrich and Gordon get older, since both are 
too small to play SG full-time.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05TOR1D.HTM
Notes: Has played for six teams in five years, but has played well on 
each one.  Good for 10-12 ppg off the bench as a shooter.  One of the 
most underrated players in the league, as evidenced by the Rockets 
trading James and his expiring contract for the more “talented” Rafer 
Alston and his five year contract.  Of course, James will probably 
command a similar contract to Alston’s in free agency, but James has 
been valuable everywhere he’s been, while Alston has not.

Notes: J-Will, not to be confused with Jay-Will.  Has much improved 
since his Sacramento showboating days.  He still showboats, but no 
longer commits turnovers.  In 02-03, he was second in A/T ratio, second 
in assists per minute behind John Stockton, and second in assists per 
game behind Jason Kidd.  The only thing stopping him from being tops in 
the league is his low minute totals, due to Memphis’ depth.  Now J-Will 
is in Miami sharing PG duties with Gary Payton.  Will he ever get a 
chance to lead the league in assists?

Notes: Got caught smoking doobies with his uncle.  If you’re a rich NBA 
player, why do you risk it all by continually getting caught with 
illegal substances?  Why would you want to submit yourself to the media 
scrutiny?  Didn’t those poor lost souls pay attention in school?  Don’t 
do the deed of smoking weed.  Marijuana?  I don’t wanna!  Don’t smoke 
the reefer, be a security briefer!  Bleh. The public service 
announcement ends, mercifully.  Recently went for 54 points, Tony Delk 
style.  The game looked a lot similar to an online game of ESPN NBA 
2K5.

you’re damn good.

the US team in the Olympics, and their games have been very close over

Notes: One of those well-traveled PGs that can subtly help a team.  Did 
a nice job backing up Jason Kidd in back to back Finals appearances.  
Did he add 3pt range over the years?  No, I don’t think so.  He always 
had it, but consistency is what you need to be a good shooter.  He 
actually started in his rookie year with Sacramento, and he hit 42 
threes.  In 02-03 he had 13, and in 03-04 he had 42.  AJ is 
consistently playing again, which is what you can credit that to.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05MIN3D.HTM
Notes: Led the NBA in Steals per minute in 02-03.  Jaric is a combo 
guard that is finally developing his playmaking skills.  He was signed 
and traded to the T’Wolves for Sam Cassell.  Cassell couldn’t help but 
laugh when he heard how much money Jaric received in his new contract.  
The Wolves seemed to badly undervalue Cassell, and drastically 
overrated Jaric.  Jaric has lost his starting job and it’s not even the 
all-star break yet.  Good thing he’s got five more years to win it 
back…

http://www.82games.com/04HOU7D.HTM
Notes: Well holy freakin crap.  When Sura was with the Hawks, he put up 
the oddest stats I’ve seen in all my years of watching basketball.  In 
18 starts for the Hawks, he averaged 16.4 ppg, 9.3 rpg, and 5.9 apg.  
Sura had three triple doubles in a row, an NBA record, but had his 
final one controversially taken away by the league as it ruled that a 
shot he missed on purpose and rebounded for his 10th rebound should not 
have counted as a shot attempted.  Sura turned his success last year 
into his first ever full-time starting role, playing a role similar to 
the one Ron Harper had in Chicago.

it’s looking like a bargain since T.J. Ford missed all of last year.  
He should be a quality backup in his career.

Notes: The Lakers’ all-time leader in threes made and attempted.  
Became Dallas’ leader in the playoffs.  As much as the Mavs needed a 
SF, he’ll be missed.  The only question is his durability.  Back when 
he was with LA, he was talking about retiring early because of his bad 
knees.  Now, Van Exel is seriously considered retirement.  He probably 
will have one more year left in him playing for a contender.

Notes: Does the little things.  Got to the playoffs every year except 
for the last two.  Would be an absolutely perfect backcourt mate for 
LeBron if he had 3pt range.  Other than that, he compensates for each 
one of LeBron’s glaring weaknesses (defense, and running the offense).

may see a slight decrease with the addition of Steve Nash.  Since many

get those minutes back as time goes on.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05DET1D.HTM
Notes: The fifth Puerto Rican born player in NBA history. He really put 
himself on the map by leading the Puerto Rican Olympic Team to victory 
against the US in blowout fashion, which was the first loss the US had 
suffered in the Dream Team era.  He was not drafted, and played in 
Spain for a year.  He easily won the starting PG job in Utah, and has 
been quite impressive.  Time will tell just how good Arroyo really is.  
Formerly the most underrated player in the video game (58 overall last 
year).

http://www.82games.com/0506/05POR1D.HTM
Notes: The cousin of Stephon Marbury, and the latest playground legend 
PG to enter the NBA.  He will be the first ever PG (aside from 6’7” 
Shaun Livingston) to enter the NBA Draft out of high school.  Nobody 
Telfair’s size has competed in the NBA at such a young age.  He is a 
quick distributor like T.J. Ford, but is not as athletic.  Telfair is 
most similar to a young Jason Williams, with his flashy passing, ball 
handling, and erratic jump shot.

Notes: Made a career for himself by defending Allen Iverson well for 
around five minutes in the NBA Finals.  Has disappointed ever since.  
Ask Orlando how much they missed Darrell Armstrong.  Put up decent 
numbers for the Hawks, but come on, who doesn’t?  If you want to have 
the worst record in the NBA, having Lue as your starting PG is a good 
way to get you there.

is probably going to be one of the more popular Knicks.  With a 42-inch

http://www.82games.com/0506/05CLE3A.HTM
Notes: Was drafted 42nd overall… in the CBA DRAFT.  He’s really come a 
long way since then.  Has played for 10 teams in 8 seasons, the 
definition of a journeyman.  He could break Chucky Brown’s record 
without much trouble at that rate, especially if he can stick in the 
league for a long time like Steve Kerr did.  Here’s an odd statistic.  
He has hit 5 threes (that’s 15 points) in a game 7 times in his career, 
but the most he has ever scored in a game is 25 points.  Jones has gone 
from underrated to overrated in the course of one season.  His numbers 
and ability barely differ from that of Mike James or Derek Fisher.  Now 
that Jones is out of Miami, getting open looks thanks to Shaq, he’s 
reverted to a slightly above average 3pt shooter.  That wouldn’t be 
such a big problem if that didn’t account for two thirds of his 
offense.

Notes: He’s a PG… and he had a good series against Derek Fisher… Wolves 
should be thankful it wasn’t his contract year.  23.5 ppg is the norm 
for PGs playing against Derek Fisher.  Not that it’s Fisher’s fault or 
anything, Shaq adamantly refuses to defend the pick and roll.  Hudson’s 
injury struggles this year eventually led to the downfall of the team.  
When Cassell was hurting in the playoffs, they had to resort to using 
Darrick Martin.  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, a healthy 
Minnesota team would have won the championship last year.

Notes: During the 03-04 season, Minnesota used McLeod in every game, 
and then when it came to guarantee his contract, they let him go 
instead of keeping him for the rest of the season.  It bit them in the 
ass later in the year when Sam Cassell went down in the Conference 
Finals, leaving Darrick Martin to run things.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05LAC2D.HTM
Notes: In NBA 2K3, Eisley was by far the most underrated player in the 
game.  Even coming off a bad season, I don’t see how Sega thought it 
fit to rate him lower than Brent Price.  Did they forget he was 
Stockton’s backup during the finals run, or that Eisley’s three-point 
accuracy, assist to turnover ratio, and assists per minute have 
consistently ranked among the top 10-15 in the league when he’s not 
benched in favor of Mark Jackson?  Eisley hadn’t missed a game since 
95-96 either, until his third string assignment.  It looks like they 
fixed this mistake in 2K4, but in the wrong ratings.  Eisley is not 
good at stealing the ball, so I don’t get how they gave him a 75.  They 
also decided to reward his high 39% 3pt shooting and 131 three’s made 
with a relatively low 78 in 3pt.

Notes: I wouldn’t call myself an expert on how high school stats 
translate to the NBA, but Livingston’s stats were awful compared to 
Sebastian Telfair’s.  He averaged 18.0 ppg, 6.2 rpg, and 5.7 apg as a 
senior.  Telfair averaged 33.2 ppg, 3.7 rpg, and 9.2 apg as a senior.  
I think what this tells us is Telfair is much more talented, but is 
overlooked because of his size, whereas Livingston is thought highly of 
because he has the “potential” for an NBA body.  I say potential, 
because he is by far the smallest frame of any 6’7” player in the 
league.  Despite a 7-inch height advantage, Livingston only weighs 10 
more pounds than Telfair (which means Telfair actually has the better 
NBA body right now when you factor in his speed/size).  Obviously if he 
muscles up he has the potential to be a Jalen Rose or Penny Hardaway 
type player (if he can fix his ugly shot mechanics), but he really 
looks like a total boom or bust player.  If his body remains status 
quo, he’s not going to contribute much in the NBA.

Notes: Carter is a 7-year vet, not a 6-year vet as Visual Concepts 
lists him.  They made that same mistake last year.  Apparently they 
don’t realize he played five games with the Spurs before going down 
with an injury.

Notes: Cousin of Damon Stoudamire (for whatever reason, that connection 
reminds me of brothers Chuck and Wesley Person).  The best shooter in 
the 2005 draft by far.  A great pick for Atlanta, because they needed 
shooting in the worst way.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05PHI3A.HTM
Notes: Quite a journeyman.  Might eclipse Mark Bryant at the team-
changing rate he is going.  He also played in the CBA, averaging 12.8 
ppg, 3.3 rpg, and 4.9 apg in 132 CBA games.  Led the league in A/T 
ratio in 02-03.  Obviously job security would be important to him, so 
the Cavs signed him to a 5-year deal.  Good move for Ollie, bad move 
for the Cavs.  Ollie became the third string PG when they traded for 
Jeff McInnis, which led to Ollie being traded again.  He’s now in his 
third stint with the Sixers, which is good for him.  He’s played more 
games with them (91) than any of the other teams in his career, and he 
was also a vital reserve on their NBA Finals team (so even though they 
traded Snow, the Sixers still have 3 players remaining from that team).

Notes: I think we’ve got some proof that VC doesn’t pay any attention 
to the lesser knowns of the NBA.  They only list 4 years pro for 
Cleaves, instead of 5 (VC counts the current NBA season as 1, a rookie 
has a years pro of 1).  Cleaves played in Detroit one year, in 
Sacramento two years, and he played in 4 games for Cleveland last year, 
he even started 2 of them.  That’s 4 years, plus the current one.  Not 
surprisingly, not a single one of Cleaves’ ratings was changed (while 
Stamina and Durability were changed for nearly every player in the 
league).

Notes: You’d think Orlando would have learned after Jeryl Sasser that 
average combo guards are combo guards for a reason – they’re not good 
enough to play either backcourt position.  Gaines should be out of the 
league and playing in Europe by the end of the calendar year.

Notes: Pacers 4th string PG for the last few years.  Hasn’t really 
improved since entering the league, and will probably find himself out 
quickly if that doesn’t change.  Isiah Thomas seems to love the guy 
(probably the only person in the league who does), so he brought him to 
the Knicks to be their fourth string PG.  Can’t even shoot free throws, 
he’s probably the worst FT shooting guard in the league by far, and 
probably one of the five or ten worst FT shooters in the entire league.  
Little passing skills either.  His only value is his defense, and he 
can dunk.  Why don’t the Knicks take a chance on Queens native Omar 
Cook?  Cook can play defense and can’t shoot either, but his PG skills 
are vastly better than Brewer’s.

Notes: Highlight of his career came when the Garden chanted his name… 
Charlie, Charlie… for his playoff heroics against the Heat.  Won the 
Heisman Award in college, but was considered by most too small to play 
football.  I’d have to agree, since he’s been plagued by knee trouble, 
and football is much more physical.  His football physicality shows 
when he’s drawing charges from the opposition, he takes more REAL 
charges than noted flopper Derek Fisher.  Retired to be an assistant 
coach on the Rockets with former coach Jeff Van Gundy and former 
teammate Patrick Ewing.

Notes: Kobe always gets compared to MJ, but let’s be fair.  MJ cheated 
on his wife while they were married, but he was never dumb enough to 
get caught.  This is the prevailing reason why Kobe, no matter what he 
does in the rest of his career, will always be one level below MJ.  
Kobe got caught with his hand in the cookie jar, and got his reputation 
stained.  MJ never did.  Kobe was the youngest player to ever play in 
an all-star game, he set the NBA record for threes in a game with 12 
(later tied by Donyell Marshall), and became the youngest player in NBA 
history to reach 10,000 points (off course, the main reason he’s the 
youngest is he didn’t go to college, LeBron is also on pace to break 
that record).  Kobe learned last season that life without Shaq or Phil 
was quite a bit harder.  He should consider himself fortunate that one 
of the two came back.  With the return of Phil Jackson, Kobe has been 
able to get easier shots within the offense, and is jacking up more 
shots than ever before.  He is averaging around 26 field goals 
attempted per game.  Kobe recently went off for “62 points in three 
quarters”.  The basketball community has gone wild over this “feat” but 
I don’t see it as anymore impressive than past 60-point games from NBA 
players.  For one, Kobe had zero assists in this game, whereas other 
60-point gamers have had around 5 assists in the game.  For two, Kobe 
had 31 FGA in 33 minutes.  Three quarters doesn’t really matter, 
because Kobe got as many touches in those three quarters as he does in 
most four-quarter games where he explodes (which is a pretty good 
indicator that Dallas’ defense of him was absolutely horrendous).  Kobe 
was also the beneficiary of a slew of technical fouls that got him some 
extra points in his record third quarter.  There have been many 
basketball “experts” who say that had the game been competitive, Kobe 
would have stayed in, he would have had a 70 or 80-point game.  To this 
I say, had the game been competitive (meaning, had Dallas actually 
played defense), Kobe wouldn’t have had 62 points anyway, and if 
anything he would have finished the game with that same 62 points.

Notes: Wade has played great, even drawing consideration for Rookie of 
the Year from those who don’t have their heads stuck up LeBron and 
Melo’s collective asses.  Ultimately, the fact that he missed so many 
games killed his chances.  The Miami Heat were back in the playoffs, 
and Wade was a big reason why.  The scariest part of all is he’s a SG 
playing out of position at PG.  In one season he’s probably played more 
playoff games than LeBron/Melo will in the next 3 years.  With Shaq in 
town, it’s likely that Wade will play more playoff games in the next 
three years than LeBron/Melo will play in their entire careers.

Notes: The shortest MVP in NBA history (Nate Archibald was an inch 
taller).  I think it’s fair to say that moving Iverson back to PG was a 
success; he had a monster statistical season (leading the league in 
scoring and ranking fifth in assists) and led the Sixers back to the 
playoffs.

Notes: Did better as MJ’s Scottie than Stackhouse did.  Is like Reggie 
Miller, but without the three-point range.  Better at moving without 
the ball than any other guard in the league now that Reggie has 
retired.  Rip is one of the best players in the league to never make an 
all-star team.  That could change this season.

defeating the US team en route to the gold.  Followed that up by 
lighting up Detroit in the NBA Finals, capturing an NBA Championship.

Notes: Runner up Sixth Man of the Year in 02-03, and went on to make 
the All-NBA Third Team as a starter in 03-04.  He helped make the Bucks 
a playoff team, in a year where most people (but not me) had them 
projected for last place.  Set the NBA record with most three’s in a 
quarter with 8.  Signed with Dallas in restricted free agency for very 
little money (right before he broke out), and Milwaukee matched at the 
very last minute.  Many people thought he’d sign with Cleveland to team 
up with LeBron, but he re-signed in Milwaukee rather than play second 
fiddle.

Notes: Broke out two seasons ago, averaging 20 ppg in a starting role 
after Marbury and Penny were traded.  He was second in the league in 
3pt% this year, mostly thanks to Steve Nash.  It’s still early, but 
JJ’s 3pt% is hovering around the .305 mark it was pre-Nash.  Good thing 
the Hawks ridiculously overpaid for him, right?

get a rebound and complete his triple double.  Little did he know, that 
you can’t get a rebound by shooting at your own basket, you have to 
shoot at your opponent’s basket to get a rebound.  Likes to put up good 
stats on bad teams.

Notes: Why is everybody trying to convert him to a PG?  He’s not a PG.  
When I saw him in his rookie year, he could hardly dribble the ball.  
Just let him play SG already, please.  Yes, he’s borderline when it 
comes to most starting SGs.  But do we see the Blazers trying to 
convert Derek Anderson to a PG?

Notes: Was acquired for Al Harrington, something Indiana might come to 
regret.  Was suspended for 25 games due to his involvement in 
“Basketbrawl”.  Jackson’s actions were arguably worse than Artest’s as 
Artest went into the stands in retaliation, whereas Jackson went into 
the stands and started swinging.  Artest got the worse punishment 
because it wasn’t the first time he was a dumbass.

Notes: Was sixth man of the year in his rookie year, and runner up in 
rookie of the year to Okafor.  Gordon has not improved in his second 
season though, and his size is a bit of a liability at SG.  The Bulls 
need a star player, so Gordon or Hinrich may be traded to acquire one 
and balance the roster.

Notes: Drew a few comparisons to Paul Pierce, but I dunno… Pierce can 
shoot.  Iguodala couldn’t even hit 30% of his threes in college, so he 
obviously doesn’t have much range.  He’s a pretty good defensive player 
though.  Iggy will fill the stat sheet in all five categories and 
shoots a decent percentage.  He also figures to make a few all-
defensive teams before all is said and done.

Notes: The pure example of how lazy Visual Concepts is when it comes to 
rating the lesser knowns of the NBA.  Bell was by far the most 
underrated played in the game; he was Utah’s sixth man for most of the 
season.  Yet the only ratings they opted to change were his 3pt (64 
from 65) and Stam (90 from 88).  They changed those ratings for 
EVERYBODY.  They had time to make those tweaks for guys that retired 
like Randy Brown and Brent Price, but they couldn’t find time to give 
Bell the respect he is due?  Not only that, but his position is off 
too, 90% of his minutes last year came at SG, not SF.  Last year was an 
even bigger travesty, they actually changed his position to SG finally, 
but they still didn’t re-rate him.  And even this year he’s still 
horribly rated.  70 handle for a SG?  Get off your asses already, you 
want to take credit for rating all these players so well, how come you 
only bother with the top 50 players in the NBA?

hope Marbury and him can play together.  So far, the results have been

Notes: The next MJ… where have we heard that before?  He averaged 29.8 
ppg for Detroit (second in the league) a few years ago, yet was only an 
all-star twice.  We’ll see how the sixth man experiment works in 
Dallas.

Notes: Easily the best player of Rick Barry’s three sons (the other two 
are Jon and Drew).  Brent Barry was the first SG to start in Chicago 
after Jordan left.  “Bones” acquired instant fame by winning the Slam 
Dunk contest in his rookie year, imitating Dr J’s dunk from the foul 
line.  See, the movie was right, white men CAN jump.  In perhaps the 
oddest trade Pat Riley made in Miami (which is saying a lot), Barry was 
acquired for the still effective Isaac Austin.  Missing its depth at 
center, Miami lost in the playoffs as Barry wasn’t even included on the 
playoff roster.

Notes: Nellie found another gem.  Daniels wasn’t drafted, but ended up 
making the All-Rookie Second team.  He also was 14th in the league in 
FG%.  Daniels averaged 15.8 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 3.0 apg, and 2.0 spg in the 
playoff series against the Kings.  In 15 games as a starter in the 
regular season, Daniels averaged 17.9 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 4.5 apg, 1.7 spg, 
and 0.5 bpg, with a .518 FG%.  In 8 April games, Daniels averaged 20.0 
ppg, 6.3 rpg, 5.1 apg, 2.3 spg, and 0.4 bpg, with a .520 FG%.  Antoine 
who?  Daniels forced Walker to play center, and essentially forced the 
former all-star out of town in the offseason.  Not bad for a kid who 
wasn’t drafted.

Notes: Solid defensive player on the Warriors, he will undoubtedly have 
a huge role in the team’s future success.  The Warriors played like a 
playoff caliber team after the trade for Baron Davis, and Pietrus was a 
big reason.  He averaged 10.9 ppg on .495 fg% in March, and 12.0 ppg on 
.505 fg% in April.  This season Pietrus has taken the starting job from 
fixture Mike Dunleavy, which has Golden State looking to trade the 
former 3rd pick whose contract they extended for big bucks.

Notes: A defensive specialist.  You know, I think a lot of these guys 
got that label because they played in Dallas, because they were the 
only guys on Dallas that actually could play defense, and since they 
were all undersized SGs playing out of position at SF.  Raja Bell, 
Adrian Griffin, and Buckner all apply here.

Notes: Once was one of the three J’s in Dallas.  Has traveled a lot 
since then.  Houston is his tenth team, but it’s only going to be his 
second team he logs 100 games with.  Hah, just when we thought Double J 
had found a home in Houston, they just dumped him on the Hornets for 
David Wesley.  Expect the Hornets to trade JJ during the season, so 
Jackson will probably be with his 12th team this season.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05NYK5D.HTM
Notes: Birth name is Anfernee, nicknamed Penny because his grandmother 
said he was “pretty as a penny”.  A rising superstar cut down by 
injuries.  Vince Carter is another knee injury away from becoming Penny 
II, but that might be stretching it.  Penny was on the All-NBA First 
Team twice, that’s how good he was.  Pre-injury, he was scoring 21 ppg 
on 50% shooting with 7 assists, 5 boards, and 2 steals per game as 
Shaq’s sidekick.  That’s eerily similar to what Dwyane Wade is doing 
next to Shaq right now.  One of the most popular players in last 10 
years, his Lil Penny commercials inspired bobbleheads everywhere.  
Unfortunately, injuries have degenerated Penny’s game so much that he’s 
not even a good scorer anymore.  His minutes have dropped pretty every 
season since 98-99 (excluding his 00-01 season where he averaged 32 
mpg).

Notes: McKie and Iverson were the only players remaining from the 
Finals team from a few years ago (unless you also count Kevin Ollie, 
who they reacquired in the Eric Snow trade).  It looks like he’s 
running out of steam and ending his career on a low note.  Phil Jackson 
loves using big guards at PG, and McKie couldn’t even beat out Smush 
Parker for the starting job.

Notes: One of the most improved players of the year.  Was thought of as 
a throw in when the Payton/Allen deal went down.  He averaged 21.5 ppg 
as a starter.  He was benched though, because apparently he gives a lot 
of it back on the defensive end.  Caused a fiasco in the 2K world.  
Badly needed to be added to the rosters last season, but VC never came 
through.  They added him this year and badly overrated him.

Notes: A very good and underrated shooter.  Nobody expected him to beat 
Peja in the shootout this year.  I remember he in 98-99 he nearly 
changed the Miami/NY series.  He was riding Riley’s bench the entire 
series, and then had 15 points (3-3 on 3’s) in garbage time of a loss.  
He quickly found himself back in the rotation the next game, but it was 
too little, too late, and the Heat became the second #1 seed to lose to 
a #8 seed.  Lenard was 9-14 on 3’s that series.  His .419 career 3pt% 
in the playoffs is indicative of how useful a weapon he can be on a 
playoff team.

Notes: Brown was NBDL Rookie of the Year and NBDL MVP in 02-03.  I 
guess that makes him the Wilt Chamberlain/Wes Unseld of the NBDL.  
Played high school and college ball in San Antonio, so it doesn’t take 
a genius to figure out why he got so many chances to make the Spurs.

Notes: Buried the T’Wolves in the playoffs by going 6-6 on threes in 
game 6 (that’s 18 points).  He scored only 12 points in 14 games with 
the Lakers this season before being traded to Charlotte for a draft 
pick.

Notes: A nice Euro prospect.  If he puts on weight, he’ll be able to 
play all of the perimeter positions.  Was supposed to get more PT now 
that Kittles and Harris are gone, but hasn’t because of injuries and 
the acquisition of Vince Carter.  Still a versatile backup though.

Notes: Former sixth pick was a bust even before he injured his neck in 
a car accident.  With Voshon Lenard done for the year, DerMarr will 
need to step up his shooting, while Greg Buckner and Bryon Russell will 
have to step up their defense to compensate for DerMarr’s sheer lack of 
it.

Notes: Was traded by the Celtics with Troy Bell for Marcus Banks and 
Kendrick Perkins.  None of the aforementioned players has made much of 
an impact yet.  Should not be confused with former Knick/Celtic bust 
Dontae Jones.  Well, not yet anyway.  He’s also Al Harrington’s cousin, 
not that you probably care.

Notes: Had two 50-point games in 02-03, averaging a career high 22.5 
ppg.  But since then, the normally durable Houston has had his knee 
fall apart on him, and injuries are severely limiting his court time.  
It was thought that Houston would be waived to save the Knicks 40 
million dollars on the luxury tax, but they decided not to.  If Houston 
medically retires during training camp, the Knicks will save 
approximately 80 million dollars because insurance would cover his 
contract.

Notes: According to an interview that aired three years ago, there are 
only a few players Shaq will allow his kids to watch:  Kobe Bryant, 
Allen Iverson, Tim Duncan, Gary Payton, Tracy McGrady, and Paul Pierce.  
Shaq goes on to say “Paul Pierce is the truth”.  Pierce’s playoff stats 
in 02-03:  27.1 ppg, 9.0 rpg, 6.7 apg, 2.1 spg, 1.1 bpg, and set an NBA 
record by going 21-21 from the FT line in a playoff game against the 
Pacers.  Rashidi also says, “Paul Pierce is the truth”.

Notes: LeBron was one of the biggest stars the game had seen BEFORE he 
even stepped foot on an NBA court, and he didn’t disappoint when he 
finally did, winning Rookie of the Year in a very deep draft class 
(Wade and Melo would have been winners in any other year).  A lot of 
people praise his accomplishments and overlook his flaws (namely, his 
defense).  I thought it was telling that Dwyane Wade was ahead of him 
on the Olympic rotation (again, because of defense).  And yeah, 91 is a 
completely ridiculous mid-range rating for LeBron.

Notes: In 01-02 he was one of only two players to be in the top 40 in 
seven of nine major statistical categories, the other player being 
Kevin Garnett.  Prior to 2005, Marion had been to the playoffs 3 times, 
and each time, he shot horribly.  Against the Spurs, I figured out why.  
Marion is not a good player in the half court.  If you take away the 
transition game, Marion essentially becomes a stationary shooter on 
offense.  He basically goes from all-star level player to Tayshaun 
Prince.  I remember watching the 1999 draft, and was shocked when the 
Suns took him.  I had Mitch Lawrence’s mock draft in front of me, and 
he Marion wasn’t even listed on his first round mock.  The next day 
Mitch gave the Suns an “F” for throwing away a lottery pick on an 
unknown like Shawn Marion.  This is why nobody gives a damn about Mitch 
Lawrence.

Notes: A total nutcase.  Changed his jersey number to 91, I guess to 
honor fellow nutcase/defensive star Dennis Rodman.  Artest was 
Defensive Player of the Year in 03-04, making him the first non-center 
to win since Gary Payton (however, I still think Ben Wallace’s defense 
is worth more to his team).  The last (and only other) SF to win the 
award was Sidney Moncrief.  Anybody out there think the Pacers would 
still be a 60-win team with Jalen Rose instead of Artest?  Anyone?  
Anybody out there think Carmelo Anthony was a better Olympic selection 
than Artest?  Anyone?

Notes: Melo is to LeBron as Dominique was to MJ.  Melo/Nique are great 
scorers, but not the complete package like LeBron/MJ.  Dominique never 
led his team deep into the playoffs (never got past second round) and I 
don’t expect Melo to either.  He seems to think he’s better than he 
really is, as evidenced by his whining about being left off the Olympic 
team, and then pouting when he got there.  The last time two rookies 
averaged 20 ppg in the same season was 92-93 (Shaq and Mourning).  Take 
a look at what Melo has done under coach George Karl (who probably 
should be Coach of the Year, but won’t be since he was only coach for 2 
months of the year).  Before Karl showed up, Melo had two months with 
an FG% way under .400 (.384 in November, .371 in January).  Since then 
Melo has been on the verge of .500 shooting, and more importantly, the 
Nuggets have been all but unbeatable.  Meanwhile in Cleveland, we’ve 
seen Paul Silas get fired, and LeBron put up numbers while the team 
spins out of control and out of the playoffs.

Notes: Rashidi’s claim to fame - Odom went to high school about 10 
blocks from his house.  How did I come to know about Lamar Odom?  Back 
in the day, my friends and I were talking about what NBA players we’d 
met.  One of my friends said he met Anthony Mason at a sneaker store.  
My other friend, who was in ninth grade at the time and went to Christ 
the King HS, said, “Lamar Odom”.  I said, “Who’s that?” and my friend 
said, “Lamar Odom is NBA”.  Makes me wonder what it’s like, knowing 
that you’re a lock for the NBA at the age of 14… An athletics director 
I know says Odom is the most talented player he’s ever seen, but he was 
also the stupidest kid he’d ever seen, going as far as to say “he was 
stupid as a brick”.  For what it’s worth, that director was also as 
dumb as a brick, because he absolutely 100% swore to me that Nick Van 
Exel had been traded to the Celtics two days prior (never mind that I 
check NBA.com and ESPN.com everyday during the summer and heard no such 
talk), and he was pissed because that meant Boston wouldn’t need Omar 
Cook who was in camp with Boston at the time (also of Christ the King 
lore).  Rashidi Insider Info at it’s finest.  Rashidi is a big Lamar 
Odom fan, but recently he received an E-mail from someone alleging they 
are Lamar Odom’s cousin.  This cousin informed me that Lamar is deeply 
upset with the comments I made about him (referring to him as “stupid 
as a brick”).  However, if Lamar had read closely, he would have 
noticed that I did not make the comments, someone who knew him did.  
One can only wonder about Lamar’s reading comprehension, and which side 
of the NBA’s Read to Achieve program he should be a part of.  Further, 
I find it humorous how this “cousin” would come so quickly to defend 
the intellect of Lamar Odom, when IT IS A WELL KNOWN THAT LAMAR CHEATED 
ON HIS ACT’S (American College Test).  At Christ the King he ranked 
312th in a class of 334, yet somehow finished in the top 42% in the 
country on the ACT with 22 of 36.  The SAT equivalent to a 22 is a 
score of 1030.  Five months before taking the ACT, Odom admitted to 
newspapers that he got a 630 on the SAT.  A 400 point improvement in 5 
months, on a test that is an indicator of life-long schooling?  Let the 
facts fall where they may, cousin O.  At least Rashidi can smile 
knowing that he got a higher SAT mark without cheating.

Notes: Would be the best SF in the NBA today if it weren’t for those 
ankle problems.  Poor McGrady never got to have a healthy Hill on the 
court.  People forget that McGrady was supposed to be the third option 
in Orlando, that they were INCREDIBLY CLOSE to signing Tim Duncan that 
summer.  Duncan/McGrady is a duo that rivals Shaq/Kobe.  
Duncan/Hill/McGrady would have obliterated it, and quite possibly could 
have been the best team of all-time.  But Duncan decided to stay in San 
Antonio (and win another ring in 02-03), Hill went down, and McGrady 
developed into a superstar.  It truly is a “what-if” scenario that is 
fun to think about.

Notes: Had one of the best seasons for a spot up shooter ever, only 
rivaled by Reggie Miller and Glen Rice’s career years.  Saw his points 
spike only because Webber was injured though.  He was hyped as hell to 
win the 3pt shootout for the third straight year (insert unfounded 
Larry Bird comparison here), and then ended up losing it by missing his 
last shot.  Somewhere, Larry Legend (who signaled that his shot to win 
it was good before it even went in) was smiling.  Still, Peja could be 
traded to Bird’s Indiana team for Ron Artest if chemistry becomes an 
issue in Sacramento, and the Pacers decide to surround Jermaine O’Neal 
with the ultimate perimeter-shooting tandem of all-time (though that no 
longer is possible now that Reggie rode off into the sunset).

Notes: I’m kind of at a loss as to why Battier’s position got changed… 
it makes him one of four SGs on the Grizzlies now, as opposed to one of 
three SFs.  Now the SFs are Brian Cardinal, who is injured, and Hakim 
Warrick, who barely plays.  Add in that the guy plays 1/3 of his 
minutes at POWER FORWARD, and you’ve got a lame brain change.  At the 
very least they could have changed Mike Miller to SF to compensate.  
Had they moved Miller to SF and left Battier at SF, while moving 
Cardinal to PF, the Grizzlies would actually have a balanced team 
default position-wise.

Notes: It’s not really talked about, but when LeBron was the consensus 
top HS player in the nation for three years straight, it was also a 
consensus that Deng was the second best HS player in the nation, for 
three years straight.  Deng had a solid rookie year, but went down with 
an injury late and missed the playoffs.  He grew an inch during the 
offseason, and now stands at 6’9”.

it’s fitting that he should be the starter in Chicago this season.

Notes: Entering the draft out of high school was a smart move for him.  
Given his current rate of development, had he gone to college, he would 
have been drafted much lower than third overall (and thus would have 
made less money).  Already the guy is 24 years old and in the second 
year of a six year contract.  Had he went and came out of college in 
his senior season, he’d still be working on a low paying rookie 
contract.

Notes: Despite being a second round SF, Simmons hustled his way onto 
fellow SF Michael Jordan’s Wizard team.  He’s stuck in the league 
since, and has broken out this year, earning himself the NBA’s “Most 
Improved Player” award.  It was a crowded year for that award too 
(LeBron James, Dwyane Wade, Primoz Brezec, Dan Dickau) which adds to 
the accomplishment.  He received a nice contract from Milwaukee, even 
though they were stocked with small forwards.  Simmons will likely see 
some time at power forward this season.

Notes: In Q-Rich’s first full season as a starter, he averaged 17 ppg.  
Of course, that kind of increase was to be expected considering the 
Clippers dropped Andre Miller, Lamar Odom, and Michael Olowokandi for 
basically nothing in return.  Led the league in threes made and 
attempted last year.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05DAL11D.HTM
Notes: Van Horn played very well in NY.  He played above expectations 
(which wasn’t too hard since everybody thought that he was going to 
suck), and was having his best season in years.  He was the Knicks best 
player pre-Marbury.  Yes, he was even better than Allan Houston.  Van 
Horn put up 17/7/2, while Houston put up 20/2/2.  When the team 
acquired Marbury, he played very well with him, when it was expected 
they would clash like they did in New Jersey.  Isiah Thomas decided it 
would be a good idea to trade Van Horn for Tim Thomas, a more 
“athletic” Van Horn.  Too bad “athletic” didn’t translate to inside 
scoring or rebounds, as this was a total downgrade and the team has 
struggled since the trade to this very day.  Van Horn is currently 
coming off the bench in Dallas, backing up Dirk Nowitzki (the player 
that Van Horn was ultimately expected to become when he was drafted 
second overall behind Tim Duncan).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bruce_Bowen
http://www.82games.com/0506/05SAS9D.HTM
Notes: Adored by Pat Riley and Gregg Popovich.  Only able to contribute 
on offense because Alonzo Mourning and Tim Duncan allow him to get open 
looks from the perimeter.  Led the league in 3pt% in 02-03, but somehow 
shot them at a better percentage than his FTs (.441 3pt to .404 FT).  
In 99-00 Bowen was waived by the Sixers, and claimed by the Heat.  
Since waiver claims are allowed according to the standings, Miami was 
able to claim him before the Knicks.  What’s interesting about that is 
the Knicks were ahead of Miami in the standings for ONE GAME the entire 
year, and it couldn’t have come at a more inconvenient time.  Bowen was 
able to wreck havoc defensively, while NY never really did get decent 
backup for Latrell Sprewell.  Maybe if they had Bowen, they never trade 
Ewing for damaged goods Glen Rice, and they never trade damaged goods 
Glen Rice for grossly overpaid Shandon Anderson.  It’s amazing what one 
day can change.  Averaged a career high 8.2 ppg and 3.5 rpg in 04-05.  
Kinda odd (how low the numbers are), considering it’s his fifth season 
of starters minutes.  Bowen also set a career high in FT% with .634.  
Again, career “high” is subjective.

Notes: Korver had quite a shocking year, statistically.  Normally 
players that are only good at shooting have sucky rookie years.  
Korver’s season wasn’t great, but it certainly wasn’t bad.  Consider 
that of his 115 FGM, 81 were threes.  He led the league in threes made 
per minute.  Korver placed third in the 3pt shootout this year, 
narrowly losing to the likes of Peja Stojakovic and Voshon Lenard.  
Good thing the shooting deprived Nets traded him to the Sixers for 
cash, eh?

Notes: Smith was called the most likely player to be a bust in the 2004 
draft.  At one point he was third on most mock drafts behind Okafor and 
Howard.  It’s anyone’s guess what Smith is capable of, who knows, maybe 
he’ll be rookie of the year on a horrible Atlanta team, or maybe he’ll 
ride the bench and shoot 35% from the field.  Well, Smith was also 
compared to Vince Carter, and at least he proved he has his athletic 
ability, as he won this year’s dunk contest.  Unfortunately, that isn’t 
going to make him Vince anymore than it made Harold Miner Jordan.

Notes: Shares the NBA record for threes in a half with 8.  The athletic 
player Isiah Thomas wanted.  He can shoot a bit like Van Horn, but is a 
worse rebounder.  That’s fine by the Knicks though, they don’t really 
need Van Horn’s rebounding as much with Mutombo and Thomas on the front 
line.  Still, my gut feeling says the Knicks will miss Van Horn more 
than they think.  Tim Thomas is a lot more useful off the bench than he 
is starting.  And oh my god, I was right.  Tim Thomas was flat out 
terrible for the Knicks.  He was total garbage in the first half of the 
season, and didn’t start hitting shots until the team was way out of 
playoff contention.  Since the guy’s only skill is hitting jumpers, he 
was useless on the court most of the time, and a defensive liability 
(opposing SFs had an effective FG% of .550).  He made Trevor Ariza look 
like a much better player than he really is.

Notes: Decent bench player, but definitely not starter quality.  Makes 
you realize how much Jerry West put into the Laker dynasty.  George got 
a good contract from Mitch Kupchak, but is a small forward that has 
shot under 40% from the field in his career.

Notes: The latest Jail Blazer, Woods was cut by Portland because of his 
involvement in a dog-fighting ring.  He must have been bored being paid 
a lot of money to play a game for a living.  Woods recently signed with 
the Knicks as they search for an athletic swingman.  He has emerged as 
the most athletic player on the team, and has made the trade for 
Quentin Richardson look even worse.

Notes: A great addition to the Cavaliers, who were interested in Brent 
Barry during the offseason.  Jackson has the potential to eventually 
become their Barry.  At the least he should at least be close to what 
Kyle Korver has done this season for the Sixers.  Luke has struggled 
with a back injury he suffered in July though, and he finally had 
surgery to correct it, which will cause him to miss the rest of his 
rookie season.

Williams’ retirement.  The Knicks are going to develop him as a SF

Notes: Did Detroit give up on White early, or did White give up playing 
basketball early?  Wasn’t he supposed to go earlier than ninth in the 
draft?  MJ loved the kid, he was considering trading the first pick 
(Kwame) for someone good so he could move down and draft White.  Now, 
White’s a mess.  He looks more like Lee Nailon than a lottery pick.  
And why hasn’t VC updated this guy yet?  He’s not a total scrub and 
he’s not a SG for Christ’s sake.

little over 20 years of age, and Maciej Lampe at 18 only played for the 
Knicks in preseason, not during the regular season).

Notes: A project in Denver, Nikoloz Tskitishvili (say that three times 
fast) is the 2003 version of Darko.  Stuck behind a loaded Denver 
frontcourt, he wants to play, but isn’t ready.  His career .301 FG% (3 
seasons) is probably the lowest in the league after Darko’s.  He signed 
with Minnesota but they’ve yet to give him much of a look.  Maybe if 
they trade KG?

Notes: Mash’s career seems to be over due to a bad knee.  He’s had an 
interesting career path.  He started as one of the three J’s in Dallas, 
was traded to Miami for virtually nothing of value, was the third star 
on a good Miami team (and his playoff vanishing acts are one of the 
reasons Miami never got over the hump), was traded for Eddie Jones, and 
formed an all-star duo with Baron Davis in Charlotte and New Orleans.  
Unfortunately, Mashburn was done in by injuries every single place he 
went.  He’s missed 259 games in his career (that’s more than three full 
seasons worth), not including last season, or the season he’ll be 
sitting out this year.

Notes: The two time league MVP won his third ring (and third Finals 
MVP) in seven seasons, and is not only one of the top players of all-
time, but also most likely solidified himself as the top power forward 
of all-time.  Duncan has been named to an all-NBA team and an All-
Defensive team in every single season (eight and counting).  The only 
other player who accomplished that feat was Duncan’s former teammate 
David Robinson (7 seasons).  Duncan is also the ONLY player in NBA 
history to be named to the All-NBA First team in his first 8 seasons 
(the next closest is Larry Bird, who was on first team his first four 
seasons).  Duncan is always among the leaders in points, rebounds, and 
blocks, but his ability to effectively pass out of double teams is why 
he’s got three rings on his finger.  He buried the Nets in 02-03 with a 
near quadruple double, and Duncan’s passing against the Pistons led the 
Spurs to victory in the fourth quarter of game 7.  As much as people 
are talking about Miami this offseason, the Spurs are still the 
favorites to win, and Tim Duncan is the main reason.

Notes: The 03-04 MVP.  I have stated many times that the T’Wolves would 
have won the championship that year if it weren’t for Sam Cassell’s 
injury in the 2004 Conference Finals.  The Wolves had to go with 
Darrick Martin as their PG and essentially play 4 on 5.  They also had 
the shooters to beat Detroit’s zone, which annihilated the Lakers.

The Clippers robbed Chicago by sending them Tyson Chandler for Brand.  
As good as Chandler was for the Bulls last year, with Brand they would 
have definitely made it to the second round.

Notes: Was the youngest player in NBA history during his rookie season.  
Sat behind Rasheed Wallace and Brian Grant early in his career with 
Portland, they traded him for Dale Davis.  Talk about a bone-headed 
trade… Jermaine has become the best big man in the east.  He averaged 
24.3 ppg last year, and averaged a double double for three seasons 
before that.  Jermaine was one of the players involved in “Basketbrawl” 
and there are now many fans are pining for him to appear in a fighting 
game with his finisher “The Sliding Punch of Doom”.

Notes: The first high school player to ever win Rookie of the Year.  I 
still think Kevin Garnett’s rookie season out of high school was more 
impressive (he was younger, he didn’t start games until halfway through 
the season, and take a look at the assists).

Notes: Gee, that Abdur-Rahim for Gasol trade is looking mighty even, is 
it not?  Originally it was thought that the Grizzlies were giving up an 
established star for a lesser player in order to clean house (when they 
moved to Memphis).  Gasol was the first European to ever win Rookie of 
the Year, also going against the stereotype that Europeans took time to 
develop and weren’t NBA ready after being drafted (Dirk and Peja, for 
example).  He was perhaps the best player at this year’s Olympics, and 
it’s a shame that Spain, arguably the best team at the tournament 
didn’t even medal.  They deserved the Bronze more than the US.  They 
only lost one game.  Spain BEAT Argentina and Italy (gold and silver 
winners) but lost to the team that ended up with the Bronze.  Meanwhile 
the US lost to teams that didn’t even end up with medals (Lithuania, 
and Puerto Rico, who wasn’t even a top 5 team).  If anyone can explain 
to me how Spain not getting a medal makes any sense, I’d love to hear 
it.  What a crock of a structure.

Notes: The first pick of the 2004 draft.  People keep saying that the 
Magic had to take him because he has the potential to be the next 
Garnett.  To that, I say, what the hell are these people smoking?  
Garnett was a lot more impressive than Howard when he was in high 
school.  I had the pleasure of watching Sebastian Telfair’s Lincoln 
team beat Dwight Howard’s team.  Telfair was taken with the 13th pick, 
and most people acknowledge that he was picked a little early.  The 
first pick in the draft couldn’t beat the 13th pick?  That’s like if 
LeBron lost to Travis Outlaw’s team (semi-exaggeration).  I’m not 
saying Howard will be a bad player, but I would think a cross between 
Lamar Odom and Zach Randolph would be a more realistic comparison.

Notes: Was traded to Portland for Rod Strickland, one of Washington’s 
all-time blunders.  Despite his past behavior, Rasheed has been the 
hottest ticket in the league last year.  He was traded to Atlanta, and 
then traded to Detroit.  Won a ring with less than half a season in 
Detroit, and seemingly all of his past behavior problems are forgotten.  
Let’s see how that holds up over a full season, especially now that he 
got his new contract.  Still, the Pistons were 33-11 after acquiring 
him (17-4 in regular season, 16-7 in playoffs) so as long as the team 
keeps winning, it will negate the distractions.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05DEN11D.HTM
Notes: An exciting player to watch, especially next to Jason Kidd.  
Even with a knee injury in his senior year, Martin was still the 
blatantly obvious choice to be the first pick in 2000.  Judging by what 
the rest of that draft class has done (Stromile Swift, Darius Miles, 
Marcus Fizer, Mike Miller, DerMarr Johnson, Chris Mihm, Jamal Crawford, 
Joel Przybilla, and Keyon Dooling fill out the rest of the top 10 draft 
choices that year, and 11-15 weren’t exactly much better), Martin is 
clearly a special player.  But is he a max level player?  That’s what 
the Nuggets gave him when they traded three first round picks for the 
right to sign him.  Will Martin be worth his contract in 2010-11, when 
he is making 16.6 million dollars?  In today’s NBA, that would make him 
the fifth highest paid player.  He’s a great supporting player, but 
he’s no franchise player (at least not yet).  Will that contract impact 
what the Nuggets are allowed to give Carmelo Anthony when he is a free 
agent?  Maybe.  How about Nene?  What about other incoming free agents?  
Will there even be any?  Depending on whom the Nets draft with those 
picks (assuming they don’t sell them off like they’ve been doing 
lately) it could end up being a good trade for Jersey.  Of course, if 
they draft utter crap, they’ll probably look like fools.

Notes: The Kings missed their chance.  The Lakers were clearly weak in 
02-03, but Webber’s injury killed them in the second round.  Then in 
03-04 C-Webb spent most of the year injured, and when he came back 
there were chemistry issues abound.  I think he takes an unfair amount 
of heat, because Peja Stojakovic is a non-factor in a half-court 
offense.  Stojakovic has choked far more than Webber has in the 
playoffs.

Notes: Led UConn to the NCAA championship.  He was in foul trouble in 
the first half of the championship game, but then scored all 18 of his 
points in the second half, and led UConn from a seven point deficit to 
a one point win.  He was the designated collegiate 12th man (see 
Laettner, Collison) on the 2004 Olympic team.  Not that selfishness is 
part of his game, but he got to see first hand how teamwork wins, even 
on a bigger stage than college.  I’ve favorably compared him to Alonzo 
Mourning, rather than Ben Wallace like a few other people have.  He’ll 
be somewhere in-between both (perhaps a 15 ppg scorer over his career).  
Just a follow-up on that, Okafor is averaging 15 ppg as of 3/18/05, so 
it looks like my comparisons to Mourning aren’t some kind of stretch.

Notes: You know what made me smile on the inside in this early NBA 
season?  In game one of the regular season, Kurt Thomas got a layup on 
a fast break, courtesy of Steve Nash.  Last year 90% of Kurt Thomas’ 
shots were jumpers, and 90% of those jumpers were assisted.  It does 
nothing but add to the idea that Stephon Marbury is not a good point 
guard despite high assist totals.  Assists that lead to inside shots 
are more valuable than assists that lead to jumpers.  In two games, 
Marbury has 10 assists, and 9 of those have led to jumpers.  In two 
games, Nash has 26 assists, and 16 of those have led to close shots.  
Like I said, it made me smile on the INSIDE.

Notes: It’s very hard to say what McDyess is going to do now that he’s 
back.  He missed essentially 3 years with injuries.  People in Detroit 
are saying he’s doing very well, that he should be a sixth man quality 
backup, but we’ll have to see.  Anytime you have a former 20/10 guy 
coming off your bench, it should be a good thing (unless you’re an 
overweight drug abuser named Shawn Kemp).

Notes: Called “Big Shot Rob” because of all those postseason daggers.  
Not over the last 2 seasons though.  Twice the Lakers and Spurs have 
played an incredible game 5.  Twice Horry’s team has come from behind.  
Twice he has taken a potential game winning three-pointer.  Twice it 
has been from the same area of the court.  Twice it has barely missed.  
Twice Horry’s team lost game 6 and the series.  Horry is currently the 
active leader in NBA Championships, with 5, and second in playoff 
games, with 175 (Malone has 193 but isn’t on a team yet, while Shaq 
with 158 should overtake him at some point, possibly in the rings 
department too).

Notes: What the hell happened?  Walker went from being an all-star 
power forward, the most versatile player in the league, an Anthony 
Mason with 25-foot range, to a chucker.  He needs to get it through his 
head that he’s better off using his superior footwork and ball handling 
to get easy shots in the post rather than brick 68% of the threes that 
he takes.

Notes: Has looked very good playing next to Shaq.  Somehow went 
undrafted - one of two undrafted rookies to make the All-Rookie Second 
Team (the other being Marquis Daniels).  Is this because teams are 
obsessing over European and high school players, rather than the 
college ranks?  I’ll say no.  What European and high school players 
have ultimately done is make the draft pool deeper, and due to that, 
more decent collegians are getting snubbed in the second round.  That 
actually works to the advantages of both parties, though.  More second 
rounder players are making an impact than ever before.  In the past, a 
team that didn’t really need him might have drafted Haslem.  He then 
would have been cut in training camp.  Nowadays, that team is picking a 
player they can store in Europe for a year.  Since Haslem went 
undrafted, it allowed him to choose his own team rather than have a 
team choose him.  Haslem wisely signed with Miami, who were incredibly 
shallow at PF.  Considering guys drafted at the end of the second round 
typically don’t make their team, it’s often in a player’s best interest 
to NOT be drafted when it gets that late, so they have more options.

Notes: Recorded a triple double during summer league play.  Notable, 
because it was points, rebounds, and FOULS.  You can’t foul out in 
summer league games.  Frye had 11 fouls in the game, and in the second 
half picked up 9 in 18 minutes.  Frye didn’t record the triple double 
until he picked up a couple rebounds in garbage time.  Yes, he hit 
double digit fouls before he did rebounds.

and missing his entire rookie season because of it.  Collison came back 
with a vengeance last year, and ranked sixth in the league in FG% and 
ninth in the league in offensive rebounds per minute.  Currently, he is 
Seattle’s starting center.

Notes: Few people will forget the huge contract that Howard never lived 
up to.  He got it by averaging 22 ppg, 8 rpg, and 4 apg in his second 
season, but he never came close to those numbers again.  He also was a 
SF at the start of his career, but became a PF (thus negating his size 
and rebounding advantage) as time passed on.

Notes: Raptors fans and the media have openly questioned their

Chris Bosh’s ceiling is higher than it really is.  Villanueva has shut 
up his critics, averaging 12 points and 5 rebounds off the bench in 
Toronto.  Villanueva got his first career start after the Jalen Rose 
trade, and proceeded to spank the Knicks for 18 points and 9 rebounds.

Notes: Was a playoff hero for Indiana on their NBA Finals run under 
Larry Bird, and got a big contract out of it.  Then Isiah Thomas took 
over, benched him, and turned the Pacers into the biggest 
underachievers in the league.  Is it any surprise that when Rick 
Carlisle took over, Croshere got minutes again, and that Indiana 
started playing up to their potential?

Notes: The last guy in the league remaining from the Portland teams 
that made the Finals.  C-Rob was one of the best backups in league 
history on those teams.  Still an excellent shooter and defender, but 
has become a poor rebounder as he has aged.  Wants to play at least 5 
more years.  He probably can do it, when you look at how durable he has 
been.  He’s missed only 19 games in 16 seasons.  Cliff is currently the 
only player in the NBA over 6’10” to hit 900 three pointers (though 
Dirk Nowitzki will hit this mark in about two years or so).

Notes: Promising young player that was traded on draft night for 
Richard Jefferson.  The Rockets are kicking themselves.  Griffin has 
struggled to stay in the league due to run-ins with the law.  If KG the 
MVP and all those Minnesota vets can’t get Griffin’s head straight, 
then nobody can.  Griffin joining Minnesota could definitely make an 
impact in the west – he’s very similar to a young Robert Horry.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05NYK10D.HTM
Notes: Taylor became redundant after Houston acquired Juwan Howard in 
the Tracy McGrady deal.  He was dealt at the trade deadline to the 
Knicks, a team he nearly signed with before receiving a ridiculous 
mega-deal from Houston.  Taylor’s role with the Knicks is still in 
limbo, as his aversion to defense and rebounding won’t endear him to 
Larry Brown, and the Knicks just acquired Eddy Curry whose weaknesses 
are those two areas.

Notes: The first high schooler ever taken with the first pick in the 
NBA draft.  He’s certainly no LeBron James.  In fairness, 2001 was a 
very weak draft class, though Michael Jordan didn’t help matters by 
criticizing his own draft choice at every opportunity.  The cousin of 
Jabari Smith – wouldn’t it be funny if Jabari ended up being better 
than Kwame?  The Lakers traded two starters for Kwame, gambling that he 
can become a better than average starter for them.  I don’t know how 
that one’s going to pan out.  People compare Kwame to Jermaine O’Neal 
in this instance, saying Jermaine didn’t break out until he was traded, 
and then he became a 20/10 player.  Well, the thing is Kwame has 
already had his chances.  He was a starter in 03-04 and averaged 10.9 
ppg and 7.4 rpg.  Decent numbers, but Darius Songaila put up similar 
numbers whenever he got a chance to start.  Kwame played 2,239 minutes 
that year.  Jermaine played 2,436 minutes in FOUR years in Portland.  
Kwame has played 5,737 minutes already, and has yet to show any 
indication that he can become a star player.  When Jermaine made it to 
his 5,700th minute, he was averaging 19 ppg and 9 rpg, not 7 ppg and 4 
rpg.

Notes: Another 18 year old that has shown more than Darko Milicic.  Of 
course, it actually helps when your team allows you to play 14 minutes 
per game for 6 weeks.  Biedrins is currently the youngest millionaire 
in his country, Latvia.

Notes: Twin brother of Jarron Collins. You can tell by their general 
ineptness on offense and facial features.  It’s funny how Collins is 
Stanford’s all-time leader in FG%, while meanwhile as a pro he has a 
career .420 FG% (.364 in the playoffs).  One of the worst starting 
centers in the NBA, and he got 6 million a year in free agency.  Let’s 
see you average 10 points, 7 rebounds, or 1 block first, buddy.

Notes: Former alcoholic that was once traded for Shawn Kemp in a three-
way deal that involved Terrell Brandon.  It was down hill for Baker 
after that.  Baker was a three time all-star in Milwaukee, and made the 
all-star team in his first year in Seattle, but the core that made the 
NBA Finals had aged and the team was not the same (Baker also wasn’t 
the player Kemp was even before he stopped taking care of himself.  The 
media ripped Baker and he used alcohol to escape those problems.  Baker 
was nearly traded to NY (a team Baker says he would have been happy 
with) with Glen Rice for Patrick Ewing in a four-team mega deal.  The 
original deal fell through however, and Baker was stuck in Seattle 
until Boston took him in exchange for Vitaly Potapenko’s ridiculous 
contract.  Boston then forced it’s way out of Baker’s contract by 
alleging that he violated a “no-drinking” clause.

Notes: Don’t be fooled by his second round selection, he was a lottery 
talent that ended up dropping on draft day because of news that it 
would be tough to get him out of his contract with Real Madrid.  He was 
the second youngest player in the league his rookie year, but performed 
better than Darko in garbage time.  Lampe is currently on his fourth 
team, as he is a project that has been unable to find playing time.  He 
is a free agent this summer so he will get to pick a good situation for 
next year.

Notes: Has more nicknames than Sean Puff Diddy Daddy Combs.  The most 
dominant player in the NBA.  When all is said and done he’ll go down as 
one of the top five centers of all-time.  The other four are Wilt, 
Russell, Jabbar, and Hakeem.  Shaq was the first player in NBA history 
to be named Player of the Week in his first week in the league.  Broke 
two backboards dunking during his rookie year.  Was selected as one of 
the 50 greatest players of all time, after only his fourth season.  
Nearly went to the NBA Finals with his third team last year, and likely 
would had the player Shaq calls “Flash” not gone down with an injury in 
game five.

Notes: Was deservedly the #1 pick in the 2002 draft, proving that one 
in every billion Chinese people could play in the NBA.  Although on 
that note, I’m willing to bet that only 1 out every billion Chinese 
people is 7’6”.  Was undeservedly an all-star in his rookie year, which 
goes to show how flawed the Internet voting system is.  Cross the most 
populated country in the world with the world’s most accessible ballot… 
if Shaq didn’t get traded to the East, Yao would have been starting 
over Shaq every year regardless of their performance.  Yao was 
undeservedly the 02-03 Rookie of the Year runner-up, behind Amare 
Stoudemire.  It’s not so much that Yao was markedly better, but the 
voting wasn’t even that close.  What did Amare do that was more 
significant than Yao?  Phoenix made the playoffs, that’s it.  You can 
attribute that to Shawn Marion being a helluva a lot better as a second 
option than Cuttino Mobley.  At the very least, they should have been 
co-winners.  Yao deserved more touches in the Houston offense. Sorry 
Stevie, we know how much you hated passing to Hakeem Olajuwon, but when 
your center is hitting a high percentage on the inside, maybe you 
should think about getting it down there more… it’s funny how Francis 
was dealt to a team with another young big man he’ll have to defer to 
sooner rather than later (Howard).  Yao and T-Mac are one of the more 
dangerous combos in history, and will go deep in the playoffs if they 
can get a decent supporting cast together.

Notes: Three-time Defensive Player of the Year.  The first undrafted 
player in NBA history to start in an All-Star game.  Big Ben is quite 
possibly the best defensive player since Bill Russell.  His single 
coverage defense on Shaq is the main reason why the Pistons were able 
to beat the Lakers (as that allowed them to zone out the Kobe and the 
rest of the team).  Wallace also took away Shaq’s second chance points.  
Shaq averaged 15.7 rpg (5.3 offensive) against Minnesota, but only 10.8 
(3.0 offensive) against Detroit (Karl Malone’s absence is magnified 
here).  Wallace nearly repeated his success against Tim Duncan and the 
Spurs, but Duncan was able to do what Shaq could not (due to lack of 
quality teammates) – find then open man behind the 3pt line.  Wallace 
also doesn’t get in foul trouble,

http://www.82games.com/0506/05DEN13D.HTM
Notes: Excellent shot blocker, good rebounder, and runs great for a big 
man, but not durable to play a full season as a starter.  The one 
season he didn’t have injury problems (other than his landmark 72 games 
in Denver) was his first season in NY where he came off the bench the 
whole year, and keep in mind that was the 50 game lockout year.  He has 
never played more than 63 games in a season (before this year), which 
means he misses at least 19 games per year.  In his best season, he 
averaged 12.0 ppg, 11.5 rpg, 2.2 bpg on .525 FG% in only 33.8 mpg.  His 
family was held hostage during the playoffs that year, and Camby was 
emotionally taken out of the series, which the Knicks eventually lost 
in 5 to the Raptors.  Would be an all-star if he still played in the 
Eastern Conference.

Notes: It was always said that Big Z would be an all-star if he ever 
got healthy enough to play.  It took a long time, but he finally got 
healthy, and is finally an all-star.  Best of all, it seems the injury 
problems are behind him as he has only missed six games over the last 
three seasons.

Notes: Missed three of the last four years (including all of 02-03) 
because of a kidney ailment related to his medication.  Zo sadly had to 
retire because of his kidney disease, and needed a transplant ASAP, 
much like Sean Elliott before him.  It’s a truly heart breaking story.  
Mourning is going to give it one last go this season, on a New Jersey 
team that Jason Kidd aside, would like him to stay retired (they save 
money if he’s deemed physically unable to play).  Zo was one of the 
best centers in the NBA, and on his way to the Hall of Fame before all 
of this happened.

Notes: Had an uneventful rookie year in 01-02, and then spent the 
entire 02-03 season on the injured list after having arthoscopic left 
knee surgery.  Then seemingly had a breakout season out of nowhere for 
the injury depleted Sixers.  Signed to a rather fat contract for a team 
that is already paying Allen Iverson and Chris Webber quite a bit of 
money.

Notes: Had a breakout year last season.  Mihm will be the starter in LA 
for quite a while it seems.  It also seems like the Celtics screwed up 
in choosing Mark Blount over Mihm.   Looks like the Lakers didn’t get 
ripped off in the Gary Payton trade like many people thought.

Notes: The changes Visual Concepts made to their updated Erick Dampier 
in 2K4 were exactly the same as the changes I made.  Maybe I’ve got 
fans in high places?  Anyway, Dampier had a breakout season (in his 
free agent year, no surprise), which likely means it’s back to sucking.  
He’ll be quite old by the time his next contract year comes around 
though, and he’ll likely be overpaid at some point.

Notes: Considered a Kevin Garnett type talent when he entered the draft 
out of high school.  He’s certainly going to have the rebounding, 
athleticism, and shot blocking of KG, but not likely the shooting touch 
or passing.  As far as he’s come as a player, it still wasn’t worth 
trading a bonafide all-star talent for Chandler.    Brand is still a 
20/10 player after 4 years, while it took Chandler 4 years to become 
starting material.

Notes: Took Dikembe Mutombo’s starting job with the Knicks last year, 
but wasn’t nearly as effective on defense.  A good backup center, but 
not really someone you want starting.  Watching Mohammed’s wretched 
“defense” all season has led to me calling him “Freeway”.  I came up 
with this name after the Hornets executed three alley oops against him 
in the span of a few minutes.  Freeway will collect great stats against 
teams with a scrub center in the middle (like the Hawks or Raptors) but 
is a total non-factor against a real big man.  Freeway’s claim to fame 
is blocking Jason Collins shot 8 times in one game (who hasn’t?) 
including three times in one possession.  His 53 blocks in 54 games 
with the Knicks seems a bit less impressive when you take out that one 
game, no?

Notes: Reason #1 why you shouldn’t take sports writers seriously.  
They’re inconsistent with everything.  Mutombo has been named Defensive 
Player of the Year FOUR times, yet he has only made the Defensive First 
Team THREE times.  Explain that one, boys.  Anyway, Mutombo set a 
playoff record with 31 blocks in a 5 game playoff series (That’s over 6 
bpg) against Seattle in 93-94.  That Denver team became the first 8th 
seed to ever defeat a 1st seed in the playoffs.  Ranked third all-time 
in blocks per game (behind Mark Eaton and Manute Bol) and fourth all-
time in blocks (behind Hakeem Olajuwon, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Mark 
Eaton).  Even in a backup role, he’ll likely pass Eaton this year (he 
trails Eaton by 68 blocks, Mutombo has 2,996, Eaton has 3,064).  Should 
get some Hall of Fame consideration when all is said and done.

Notes: Nets first round pick from 2002.  Became a big contributor after 
Alonzo Mourning and Aaron Williams were traded.  He’s still very young 
and can improve in a few areas.  I think he’s a good marker of progress 
for Darko.  Krstic is two years older, and also spent two years 
overseas developing his game, and he became a contributor at age 21 
(because everyone else around him got traded).  Darko has to somehow 
find playing time competing with three all-star big men (Big Ben, 
Sheed, and McDyess).

Notes: Nicholai’s favorite player, he once saw him score 780 points in 
a game.  Notably drafted ahead of Tracy McGrady.  Why the hell did the 
Warriors re-sign this guy to such a huge contract?  He’s done nothing 
in his career; he’s a total Jim McIlvaine.  They couldn’t afford to pay 
Antawn Jamison, Gilbert Arenas, or Erick Dampier, but they broke the 
bank on this guy and Derek Fisher?

Notes: In the 03-04 season, 38% of Cato’s shots were jumpers.  He hit 
22.8% of those.  31% of his shots were close to the basket.  He hit 
34.5% of those.  28% of his shots were dunks, and 3% of his shots were 
tips.  Half of the damage Cato does inside is power based, and that’s 
the only thing he’s good at, there isn’t an ounce of finesse in this 
man.

Notes: Was supposed to be one of those high school versions of Shaq.  
It takes more than being 300 pounds to be a good center.  Diop has 
actually gotten better since LOSING weight.  He’s down to 280 pounds, 
and he’s a quicker defender because of it.  He soon might be the 
starting center in Dallas if Erick Dampier keeps sucking.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05ORL17D.HTM
Notes: Was the youngest player in the league his rookie year, in fact I 
think he was the youngest in league history since he had to get special 
permission from David Stern to bend the rules so he could enter the 
draft (actually second youngest, Jermaine O’Neal was youngest, but only 
international players had to go through certain age restrictions).  I 
guess the question we’ll never know the answer to is – If Detroit knew 
they were going to get Rasheed Wallace, would they have drafted Carmelo 
Anthony instead?  Since they won the title without Melo, it doesn’t 
appear that they needed him, but with Sheed, Big Ben, and now Antonio 
McDyess, there isn’t exactly PT on the horizon for Darko.  Not much 
went right for Darko in his rookie year.  He shot .262 from the field, 
but still won a ring with Detroit.  Even that wasn’t without drawback, 
as he injured himself in the waning minutes of garbage time in game 
five, which led to him missing the Olympics (a stage that would have 
been a good look at what the kid can really do).  The Darko era in 
Detroit mercifully came to an end as he was traded to Orlando, where he 
could form a twin towers dynasty with Dwight Howard, or flop 
altogether.

Notes: Vastly underrated by Visual Concepts no longer, Doleac is one of 
the better shooting centers in the league.  Hard working hustler that 
plays well in the pick and roll (and especially well with Stephon 
Marbury).  Should compliment Shaq very well in Miami.  I still can’t 
believe Isiah Thomas thought Tim Thomas and Nazr Mohammed was an 
upgrade over Keith Van Horn and Michael Doleac.

Notes: A white guy from high school to the NBA?  Now I KNOW the world 
has gone mad.  Still, he seems to be more talented than massive guys 
like Pavel who have only been playing basketball for 4 years, so I 
won’t discount him.

Notes: Araujo might just be what Toronto needed (a center, and badly) 
but there was absolutely no need to take him with the 8th pick.  This 
guy wasn’t projected any higher than 14th.  Trade down for Christ’s 
sake; don’t stick a potential stiff (lots of mid-lottery centers bust) 
with a larger salary (rookie wages are determined by draft selection).

Notes: Quite possibly the worst #1 pick in NBA history.  Only the 
Clippers would draft a 23-year-old project with the first pick in the 
NBA draft.  Kandi is 30 now, and he’s not going to get much better.  
The Clippers thought so little of Kandi that they let him walk away 
without compensation.  What a waste of a first pick.  1998 was one of 
the better draft classes in recent memory.  The Clippers could have 
taken Mike Bibby, Antawn Jamison, Vince Carter, Paul Pierce, or Dirk 
Nowitzki.  But that’s the Clippers for you.  I think if they did it all 
over again… they probably would have taken Robert Traylor instead.

Notes: I think it’s kinda silly that a late first round pick who was a 
college junior would be rated 58, while the ultra raw Kendrick Perkins 
(a HS Senior) was rated a 67 overall last year.  It sounds like they 
got lazy or rushed him to meet a deadline.

Notes: You know, VC had me thinking that Potapenko sucked for a while.  
They only have him rated 59 overall.  I figured he wasn’t much more.  
Then I look him up, and I remember that he was scoring 10 ppg as a 
starter in Boston a few years ago, and has averaged 7.0 ppg for his 
career.  While 7 ppg isn’t great, it’s certainly better than the 
scrubonomics of 59 overall.  It certainly wouldn’t merit 50 in close, 
50 in med, and 70 in PostOff.  What else can we expect from VC, most of 
their center ratings are awful, it’s a known fact they don’t pay 
attention to anyone rated less than 70 overall.  They had Rasho 
Nesterovic rated lower than Kevin Willis for two straight years, for 
crying out loud.

http://www.82games.com/0506/05LAL17D.HTM
Notes: Bynum has been heralded as the next Shaq.  So were Eddy Curry 
and DaSagana Diop.  The height of his potential is Shaq, but like every 
other center that has been given that comparison, he has a very long 
way to go.  It was only fitting that the Lakers draft Bynum.  If anyone 
can help him turn his potential into reality, it’s the Lakers and Phil 
Jackson.  You can’t help but think that Kobe is salivating over the 
prospect of having “his Shaq”.  Still, Bynum is very young and very 
raw; it will be a slow process.  He’s not going to oust Chris Mihm from 
the lineup anytime soon.  Bynum is the youngest player ever drafted (17 
years, 8 months, and 2 days old), and he is the youngest player ever to 
play in an NBA game (18 years, and 6 days old).  Those records will 
probably stand the test of time as the NBA now requires American 
players to enter the NBA draft a year after they graduate high school 
(and they must turn 19 during the calendar year of the draft to be 
eligible).

Notes: Pulled out of the 2003 draft because he found out about a growth 
hormone problem, but it now appears he’ll be able to control it.  Pavel 
is very large, and very raw.  He knows how to use his size, but doesn’t 
know how to use post moves effectively.  He’s also a bit slow reacting 
on the defensive end.  In that regard, he’s a bit similar to Gheorghe 
Muresan.

clearly a huge project.  Played in the ABA at the start of last season, 
but the Blazers cut Vladimir Stepania to make room for the big fella on

VII. Created Players (aka the CAPs section)

Upon request, I’ll rate certain players - rookies, or former NBA 
players.  If you have a request, e-mail me.  But keep in mind that I 
don’t watch college basketball, so accurately making a CAP for a rookie 
may take some time.

On the concept of “Players adjusted to a certain year”, this is there 
because often players want to cap players from, you guessed it, a 
certain year.  A popular request seems to be the Chicago Bulls.  As 
most of us know, Jordan in the game is not the same player as the 
Jordan who won 6 titles.  In fact, Jordan was a different player during 
his first 3 titles than he was in his last 3.  

Other players suffer setbacks in their career, and aren’t the same.  
Larry Johnson for instance, was a bonafide superstar when he came into 
the league, and then back injuries killed his career.  Some people will 
want Charlotte LJ, and some will want NY LJ.

Shawn Kemp and Vin Baker are players in the league that also used to be 
good, but aren’t very good right now.  These are all just examples of 
what can appear in that section.  Of course, Rashidi doesn’t have all 
the time in the world (though it’s sometimes hard to tell), so he’ll 
get to these when he can.  As said, e-mail me with suggestions.

Oh, and lastly, I don’t care about CAP appearances.  I don’t make them 
so don’t bother asking me how to make LeBron’s face and such.  A player 
will still play the same, no matter what his hair looks like.

Notes: Went undrafted but impressed in Knicks’ training camp back in

top scorer in the NBDL, and turned it into a backup role on the 
Bobcats.  Carroll will get an increase in minutes due to the departure 
of Jason Kapono.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martynas_Andriuskevi%C4%8Dius
Notes: Martynas is a 19-year-old center that has drawn comparisons to 
Arvydas Sabonis (mostly because he trains with him).  There was 
initially some confusion about whether Martynas would stay in this 
year’s draft.  There were reports that he would be pulling out again 
this year after a poor performance in a Tel Aviv junior tournament, but 
when early entry candidates were announced, his name was there.  
Martynas probably needs to fire his agent.  Last year he would have 
been a surefire first rounder in the low lottery.  This year he ended 
up being a second round pick.  Martynas was traded to the Cavs on draft 
night, which is a good place for him.  They will be able to build him 
into an Ilgauskas-type player, perhaps eventually taking over, as Big Z 
gets older.

Notes: Cousin of Damon Stoudamire (for whatever reason, that connection 
reminds me of brothers Chuck and Wesley Person).  The best shooter in 
the 2005 draft by far.  A great pick for Atlanta, because they needed 
shooting in the worst way.

Notes: Bonner was drafted by the Raptors in 2003 but was not offered a 
contract, and spent the year in Europe.  He was offered a contract last 
year, and ended up ranking sixth in FG% and tenth in 3pt%.  Even then, 
the Raptors were still reluctant to offer him a contract for this year.

Notes: Two summers ago I was thinking about getting a motorcycle.  The 
next day, Jay-Will got into his motorcycle accident.  Jay-Will’s career 
is in jeopardy after his serious motorcycle accident.  He carries with 
him the jinx of the number 2 pick which dates back as far as Sam Bowie, 
who was famously drafted before Jordan.  Other #2 pick gaffes include: 
Shawn Bradley before Penny; Darko before Melo/Bosh/Wade; Keith Van Horn 
before T-Mac; Danny Ferry before Sean Elliott, Glen Rice, Tim Hardaway, 
and Shawn Kemp; Steve Francis was drafted by the Grizzlies but forced a 
trade to Houston for Michael Dickerson, who had a career ending injury, 
while the Grizzlies missed out on Baron Davis, Lamar Odom, Wally 
Szczerbiak, Richard Hamilton, Andre Miller, Shawn Marion, Jason Terry, 
and Ron Artest.  Other #2 picks have not come out unscathed: Len Bias 
(died of cocaine overdose after being drafted), Alonzo Mourning (rare 
kidney disease), and Antonio McDyess (three knee surgeries in two years 
and also taken before Garnett).  Jay also changed his name from Jayson 
to Jay because Jayson Williams (the former Nets star) drunkenly shot 
and killed his limo driver with a shotgun a month before the draft.  
Jay is trying to latch onto a team, but trainers who have looked at him 
say he’s 80%, and he probably won’t be 100% until mid-season.  And no, 
I never did get that motorcycle, just like I didn’t get a car after 
Bobby Hurley’s accident.

Notes: One of the 50 greatest players in NBA history, and certainly one 
of the most colorful.  Sir Charles is currently a popular NBA analyst, 
and a future Hall of Famer.  He’s an 11-time all-star, and a one-time 
MVP.  “The Round Mound of Rebound” is the shortest player to ever lead 
the NBA in rebounding, and only the fourth player in history to ever 
record 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds, and 3,500 assists (Karl Malone 
has since become the fifth).

Notes: Manute Bol, native of Sudan, is the tallest player in NBA 
history, and certainly one of the most unique it has seen.  He was a 
dangerous shot blocker, but had such a slight frame that he couldn’t 
bang in the post.  He also did a lot of his offensive damage from 3pt 
range with an unorthodox release (you’d shoot different if you were as 
tall as the basket too).

Notes: Yinka Dare passed away at the age of 32 from a heart attack. 
Some of you will remember Yinka as a project taken 14th in the 1994 NBA 
Draft by New Jersey.  Others will remember his 4 assists in 4 pro 
seasons and 110 games, which came to an average of less than 0.1.  
Others will remember his memorable second season where he played in 58 
games, started 23, recorded 626 minutes, and collected zero assists.  
Rashidi on the other hand chooses to remember his greatness and 
accolades, which rivals that of Adonal Foyle.  Whether you loved him or 
hated him (if you hated him, you’re not a basketball enthusiast), Yinka 
Dare was an important part of New Jersey Nets history (without Yinka's 
contribution, it is unlikely the Nets would have made the playoffs to 
play the Bulls close in the first round), and he will be missed, 
especially by Nicholai.  RIP Yinka.

Notes: A first ballot hall of famer, the greatest Knick in franchise 
history.  Ewing was probably the best mid-range shooting center in NBA 
history.  No other big man could pull an 18-foot jumper while fading 
away quite like him.  Ewing was also a great defensive player, though 
never given the recognition he deserved because he played at the same 
time as Olajuwon.  Like the rest of Jordan’s rivals, Ewing never won a 
ring, though he did have his chances.  In 1994 he lost to Hakeem’s 
Rockets (the last 7 game NBA Finals before Spurs/Pistons).  It was 
hardly Ewing’s fault though, as he set the record for blocks in an NBA 
Finals with 30, and his 8 blocks in game 5 also stand as a Finals 
record.  The Knicks would make the Finals again in 1999, but Ewing got 
hurt in the Conference Finals and could not play.  He certainly would 
have helped against Tim Duncan and David Robinson, especially since 
Larry Johnson played the series on one leg, and Camby was too skinny to 
stand up to either.  Ewing was never the same player after his wrist 
injury in 97-98.  His FG% before that injury was never lower than .466 
and it was above .500 nine times in his first 13 seasons.  In his last 
four seasons (after the injury), it was .466 or lower.  His FT shooting 
also noticeably dropped off, from 75% to 70%. Ewing is currently an 
assistant coach for Houston under his former coach, Jeff Van Gundy, 
tutoring another center that can shoot how to play hard-nosed defense.

Notes: The best player in NBA history.  Michael Jordan is synonymous 
with the word basketball.  Holds the league’s all-time record in 
scoring average, and led the league in scoring ten times (including 
seven years in a row, tied with Wilt Chamberlain).  Also boasts the 
record for playoff scoring average.  Won six championships and was the 
best player of the greatest dynasty in NBA history, the 90s Bulls (yes, 
greater than the 50s/60s Celtics).  Went undefeated in the NBA Finals, 
and was named NBA Finals MVP every single time (compare that to Kobe 
who is 3-1 in the Finals, with zero Finals MVPs, and you can end the 
Jordan comparisons right there).

Notes: The greatest Power Forward in NBA history, and ranks second on 
the NBA’s all-time scoring list with 36,928 points, only trailing 
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar.  After playing with Utah and John Stockton his 
entire career, and giving Michael Jordan a better run for their money 
than any other team, Malone suited up next to Shaq and Kobe along with 
Gary Payton.  Malone’s defense on Kevin Garnett was instrumental in the 
team making the NBA Finals, but the ultra-durable Malone got hurt and 
the team was helpless on the boards against Detroit.

Notes: Nicknamed Baby Jordan, because he was bald like Jordan and could 
dunk.  Mentally he was nowhere close to Jordan, but he did win the 
slam-dunk contest twice, earning him legendary renown among nostalgic 
NBA fans.  Miner quickly found himself out of the league though, 
because he was a ball hog and didn’t play any defense.  When Miner got 
traded to Cleveland, he was buried on the bench.  It’s odd that no 
other team showed interest in him after that as he was young and could 
score a little.  Miner had a decent career in Europe from what I heard.

Notes: One of the streakiest players of all time.  Not sure which he is 
more famous for, posterizing Horace Grant and Michael Jordan in what 
came to be known as “the dunk” (pictures at 
http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/2717/starks.gif and 
http://www.progsoc.uts.edu.au/~wonj/basketball/dunk.html) in game 2 of 
the 92-93 conference finals, or going 2-18 (0-11 from 3pt range) in 
game 7 of the 93-94 NBA Finals.  Set an NBA record in 94-95 with 217 
three’s made (although that record was broken by Dennis Scott a year 
later).  Owns the record for most three’s attempted in an NBA Finals 
with 50.  After coaching in the USBL, Starks was signed by the MSG 
network to be their media rep.

Notes: The first Dominican to play in the NBA.  Lopez was a high school 
superstar, similar to LeBron James, but completely lost it at the 
collegiate level.  An interesting contrast of two sports… Felipe is 
only one of two players with the last name Lopez to play in the NBA 
(and he was the first, the other one is Raul Lopez).  Right now there 
are TWO players named Felipe Lopez playing in MLB.

VIII. Roster updates

This section will include roster updates that are not covered in the 
default rosters (the roster cutoff date was 8/22/05), and all moves up 
until the end of the season.  I will list the team, and then the 
players who were added to that team.

If I say (NOT IN GAME, SEE CAP SECTION) next to a player it obviously 
means he is not in the game, but that I have a CAP for that player in 
my Player Rating FAQ.  If it just says (NOT IN GAME), it means I don’t 
have a CAP.

Players that retire should be reduced to 50 in all ratings, and you may 
want to consider doing the same to players that jumped to Europe.

IX. Depth Charts

Here I’ll list the depth charts of the NBA teams, so you have a good 
idea of where to put them in your “Team Lineups” screen.  You may not 
realize that where a player is placed on the bench affects the rating 
of the team.  Bobby Jackson in the top bench slot affects the team’s 
rating more positively than he would if he were at the bottom of the 
bench, or on the IR.  Also, I am going to be placing players regardless 
of position.  Some players have incorrect positions in the game, and 
unfortunately, you can’t edit position.  For instance, in the game, 
Allen Iverson is technically a SG.  However in real life, Iverson is 
going to be starting at PG.  I will also include players that are not 
in the game, to make it as complete as possible.  You can always create 
the missing players, or VC might add them via a roster update (they did 
it in 2k3 and 2k5, but not in 2k4).

X. Team Ratings

These are the ratings I have for teams with all of my player rating and 
roster changes (as well as the ratings for the unlockable teams).  This 
should be a good indicator of how accurate teams are.  Note that 
injuries during the season may play a large factor in these ratings 
becoming inaccurate, but right now (as of 8/22/05), these ratings look 
fairly accurate.

XIV. Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any questions, I’ll post it here (if it’s a good question).

-----

QUESTION
Can you create this player for me?

ANSWER
It depends on who the person is.  Rashidi doesn’t have all the time in 
the world, but if the player interests me enough, I’ll spend some time 
on it.  Necessity takes priority.  I’m a lot more likely to create some 
scrub at the end of an NBA bench than some guy from Europe I’ve never 
even heard of.

-----

QUESTION
Will you create this year’s rookie draft class?

ANSWER
Yes.  But I won’t get around to this until it gets close to draft time, 
because that’s when all the scouting reports for these players become 
more accurate.  I am keeping my eye on a few of them though.

-----

QUESTION
Do you have the appearances for CAPs?

ANSWER
This year I am including CAP appearances to my guide, after much 
nagging.  It doesn’t even matter that much, because it’s pathetically 
easy to create players since the CAP options are so limited.  

-----

QUESTION
How do you change player positions?

ANSWER
You cannot change the positions of existing players in the game.  The 
only way to “change” them is to download a roster update from Sega, as 
they often change positions for players whether they deserve it or not.

-----

QUESTION
Why don’t you acknowledge Tom Gugliotta’s greatness?

ANSWER
Christian Laettner > Tom Gugliotta.

-----

QUESTION
Rashidi, do you play online?

ANSWER
I do.  My record is 16-14, and my rank is currently floating around 
200.  I only pick balanced teams, as I don’t like using the good teams 
too much.  My favorite teams online are the Nets, Knicks, Warriors, 
Bulls, Hawks, Lakers, and Sixers.

I currently have three user names.

Rashidi [Any Team] 4048 rank (X-X-X-X) [X% feedback]
LamarOdom [Lakers] 1790 rank (12-13-3-0) [86% feedback]
NateRobinson [Knicks] 1314 rank (25-14-1-0) [86% feedback]

-----

QUESTION
Rashidi, what is your favorite NBA team?

ANSWER
I live in the NY area, so it is easiest for me to follow the Knicks and 
Nets.  The Knicks are my favorite team, but Jason Kidd has been my 
favorite player since he entered the league.  The last three years I 
have definitely preferred NJ.  I was starting to lean back towards NY, 
but I very much dislike Jamal Crawford and Tim Thomas, Isiah Thomas’ 
two prize acquisitions.  The Knicks play no defense, they have no 
chemistry, and all their ball movement comes from their guards, which 
makes for a boring and stagnant offense.  Marbury is probably the worst 
PG in the league at creating on the fast break for players other than 
himself.  Since Marbury declared himself the best PG in the NBA, the 
Knicks have turned into a more talented version of last year’s Orlando 
team.  Since then, the Nets also traded for Vince Carter, who has 
returned to his prior greatness thanks in part to Jason Kidd.  Along 
with the emergence of Nenad Krstic, and the improvement and return to 
health of Richard Jefferson (and Kidd’s health too), the Nets will be 
one of the most exciting teams in the league next season.  But since 
Kidd/Carter/Jefferson barely logged any time together this year, I have 
to say my favorite team to watch has been Phoenix.  Yeah, I know, how 
predictable.

-----

QUESTION
Rashidi, which team do you like the least?

ANSWER
Probably Atlanta.  They suck badly, and hardly ever employ a player 
that I like.  Dominique Wilkins, Christian Laettner, Dikembe Mutombo, 
Steve Smith, Kevin Willis, Stacey Augmon, and Mookie Blaylock headlined 
teams that were worth watching, but the cast has sucked badly the last 
couple years.  Antoine Walker is a chucker, and I never really liked Al 
Harrington all that much.  Who else do they have?  Jason Collier?  
Tyronn Lue?  Boris Diaw?  This hasn’t kept me from using the Hawks 
online of course, but only to embarrass other players.

-----

QUESTION
Rashidi, who is your favorite player?

ANSWER
This is my current Top Five.
1. Jason Kidd
2. Steve Nash
3. Dwyane Wade
4. Marcus Camby
5. Manu Ginobili

-----

COMMENT
The "notes" on Kobe Bryant are completely idiotic and should be 
removed.  Both MJ and Kobe did wrong by cheating on their wives 
but saying MJ is better by not getting caught is just lame.  Just post 
some basketball facts and leave your personal opinions on other's 
personal lives out of your FAQ.

RESPONSE
You really have three options.
1. Don't use my FAQ.
2. Don't read the notes.
3. Find a way to deal with opinions you disagree with.
The fact is, public opinion of Jordan is high because he didn't get 
caught.  Everyone knows Jordan cheated, but he is still looked upon as 
a basketball god.  Kobe was never on Jordan's level to begin with, he's 
more similar to Clyde Drexler than he is to Jordan.  Jordan never 
struggled to lead the league in scoring, and he never struggled to 
shoot 40% from the field.  He was also Finals MVP every time he went to 
the Finals, while Kobe is 0-4 in that department.  There are many 
people who think Kobe is as good as Jordan was, or ludicrously, even 
better than Jordan.  Kobe getting caught pretty much puts a stain on 
that.  If you don't like it, that's reality.

-----

QUESTION
I’ve heard of him, but what was wrong with Harold Miner?

ANSWER
“Baby Jordan” Harold Miner was a 1 on 1 player and a bad defender. He 
got traded to Mike Fratello's Cavaliers. Fratello was about team and 
defense, so Miner was obviously buried, and fell out of the league.  He 
was about as good as Fred Jones.  He had a decent career in the minor 
leagues and Europe.

QUESTION
How many people have sent you their memory card?

ANSWER
To date, I have served six people.
