Worst NBA Players 14/15

talking of those who weren't purely situational stoppers/bench scrubs but were actually expected to play some kind of significant role in their teams and got decent minutes (at least in the beginning).

Worst player: Mike Miller (Cavs, 52 games, 15 starts, 701 minutes) 2.1/1.8/0.9 FG 32% PER 4.6

others who deserve a mention: Kendrick Perkins, Doug McDermott, Gerald Wallace (makes +$10M per year lol)

Worst starter:

Dante Exum (Jazz, 82 games, 41 starts, 1817 minutes) 4.8/2.4/1.6/0.5stl/1.4to FG 35% PER 5.7

Worst rookies: Dante Exum, Doug McDermott, Nik Stauskas

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

I like Kenneth Faried.
Before this year, Everyone would have picked Kenneth Faried over Tristian Thompson.
TT got the exposure playing with Bron.

I pick the New York Knicks.

Oh there are a lot of good players on that team. But they all played like shit.

Lawson
Gallo
Chandler
Faried
Nurkic

They quit on the coach and decided to get blown out every game. Disgusting.

The Knicks were crap and they needed a tank season. They will be good in 2-3 years. Phil Jackson did what needed to be done, traded away the shit and purged the payroll. I like what he has done.

Wasn't Exum hyped up quite a bit? Shame he performed so badly, anyway.

Really doesn't matter to be honest. Judge him in 2016/17. He's got a certain flair to his play that not many players have.

The learning curve in the NBA is steep and he will get there in a couple of years.

He's been totally hopeless so far. Showing zero PG skills and not even driving to the basket, settling for his below average outside shooting instead. Dunno where's the flair supposed to be.

This guy might be all smoke and mirrors...don't forget he was hyped up on a very limited sample of games. basically only Nike Hoops Summit and those FIBA junior world cup games. He didn't participate in the draft combine and refused all workouts with NBA teams. Their logic was to keep is real skills under the wraps so that the teams don't get a sniff of how limited his ability really is so they will draft him on this "next Westbrook" perception alone.

This guy has basically only played Australian high school ball...NBA was a way too big jump for him. Should've played in the D-league.

It's a mistake to draft international players without a solid confirmation of their skills.

Big games are easy than the other games, unfortunately. Every times we have the control the games, under the control the games, during the games we had the some possibilities, some big chances, some big okazyons, something like that but what can I do, sometimes? And….it’s the football, that’s the football, something happened. Everything is something happened. - Fatih Terim

not sure exactly what has Jackson done to deserve any credit...well he sure helped Cavs to complete their roster. Giving away one of the best young perimeter defenders (Shumpert) and even JR Smith now looks like a decent instant offense sub in the right environment.

now they have the 4th pick in a 3 player draft and have a great opportunity to tank next season...except they don't have a 1st round pick next summer

I don't know his stats but i feel like i don't need them to know that Kendrick Perkins is the worst abomination of a player in the NBA and a filthy excuse of a human being. Not to mention that he easily has the most punchable face in the entire NBA. I was shocked to discover that he's barely 30 years old, the guy looks and lumbers down the court like a Cold War Russian tank.

Worst player to ever win a title, even worse than Mark Madsen

VIVA ESPAÑA Y HALA MADRID :fero:

He got rid of JR Smith which is amazing work in my eyes. Shumpert is an alright players and giving him away to get rid of JR Smith was absolutely the right move. In the summer he has a a ton of cap room to work with and the 4th pick in the draft. Knicks are contenders in two years IMO. You can give Jackson the credit then.

I doubt he's even around in two years time.
