Kirk Hinrich-Averages 28mpg Guy has a few good games here and there but most of the time he is unrosterable, you play almost 30 minutes and average less than 7 pts a game.

Lance Stephenson-Averages 27mpg A shooting guard who almost shoots free throws as bad as Duhon and only averages around 6pts a game.

Mario Chalmers-At One point Averaged 30mpg A point guard who if you looked at the box score appears to wonder around because he stats show that he isn't doing anything. Eric Bledsoe can do more in his 8 minutes on the court then this guy does in 30. You cant blame the stars either.

Chalmers was never supposed to be a key guy. Spoelstra said we need a point guard ok chalmers your in. Now what your gona dois dribble up court and pass to Lebron or Wade and get in the corner for maybe a 3 point attempt. Hes more a facillitator than a big fantasy guy. Hes just does his job and gets out of the way

Tayshaun Prince is putting up ok stats but I can't think of a more boring player who's minutes could go to developing some other player. Maxiell is another guy at 27 MPG who does nothing except get a little more than block.

Beasley was in this category but he's finally a bench player. Sebastian Telfair is averaging 18 minutes a game and contributes virtually nothing on the court. I also think Aaron Brooks is pretty useless for a guy averaging 24 minutes a game

Caron Butler is shooting 40% in about 24 minutes and is badly getting outplayed by Barnes

Haha I like this thread, unique idea.

Also, I think it's a good time & place to ask this question bc I can't find an answer for it. Why on Earth did MDA movie Darius Morris to starting SG (over Meeks), move Kobe to SF, and bring MWP off the bench - even though Morris is playing about 6 min/g and the rest of the guys are playing their normal minutes. Can anyone explain the rationale behind that or is there none??

The funny thing is, I actually like the majority of D'Antoni's rotations. I also feel like they should of kept Goudelock instead of Darius Morris (if they were to switch roles). Goudelock would be one of the best shooters in the league and would fit this system perfiectly......but I digress.

I find this pretty perplexing. I don't know enough about Darius Morris as a player, all I remember is watching him a few times in college and a few times this year. He has good size and plays some pretty good defense. That could be why.

Also, to contribute to this thread....Marvin Williams. plays like 28mpg....offers absolutely nothing in terms of fantasy. He's actually a good real life player because he can do a lot of things, but he's rarely ever steady in productionl.

Pretty surprised to see his name on here, when you're a big supporter of Kidd. He hasn't been getting as much minutes lately, but still bit sneaky productive.

The Bruce Bowen Memorial thread. Bowen basically epitomized this. Most of these kind of players are defensive specialists. Tony Allen, Thabo, etc.

I give my nomination to Austin Rivers. Not a defensive specialist, gets a lot of minutes, and puts up useless stats.

28.2 MPG, 7.7 PPG, 2.5 RPG, 2.7 APG, 0.7 3PM, 0.6 SPG, 35% FG, 62% FT, 6.74 PER

Austin Rivers is the clear winner.

I can't believe no one's mentioned Austin Rivers yet. Not only does this dude not give you numbers - he kills you while doing nothing. Mickael Pietrus is doing everything he can to become like him.

Another Piston is Kyle Singler, who looked like a good steady sleeper and instead just regressed to doing not much of anything

Edit: Finally the Rivers mention came when I was typing this up and doing something else. He deserves multiple mentions really

Good question. I'm not exactly sure of the reasoning either.
But I thought about this last night, and my guess is that perhaps MDA likes having Metta come off the bench as a spark for the team.
And shifting Kobe to start at SF allows Kobe to preserve his energy, while Morris starts as SG maybe for defensive purposes as well.
But it seems pointless, and I think Metta should be reinserted back into the lineup. Hopefully after Yahoo updates Kobe's status to SF-elgibile tho! :lol:

He's been the worst player in the league to get significant minutes. He could turn things around certainly, but performing at this level in your first taste doesn't usually signal a very good NBA career.

For those of you who are baseball fans, Rivers' rookie year is the basketball equivalent of Brandon Wood's first couple cups of coffee in the big leagues.

these are all good names that have been mentioned.
I particularly agree that Kyle Singler is getting way too much PT while doing absolutely nothing. Thank god Stuckey is cutting in on his playing time lately.

Austin Rivers is worse than I thought he'd be as an NBA player. All hype, no substance.

Kwame Brown & Lavoy Allen are both horrible, while the most productive Center... Spencer Hawes is sitting on the bench most of the time.

Martell Webster is another guy.

Tristan Thompson was another guy who was awful, until recently now that Varejao is out.
