WHO’S THE WORST PLAYER IN THE NBA?

JASON COLLINS: NBA’S WORST PLAYER?

ESPN has come out with their annual “player efficiency ratings.” It’s a mathmatical formula that statistically ranks all of the players in professional basketball called the Hollinger Projections.

According to this system, the top players in the NBA are 1) Chris Paul, 2) LeBron James, 3) Amare Stoudemire, 4) Yao Ming, 5) Kevin Garnett and 6) Kobe Bryant.

According to the same system, the worst player in the league is Minnesota Timberwolves center Jason Collins (formerly of the Nets and Grizzlies.) That’s the same Jason Collins who was recently injured in a “freak” golf cart crash. Collins averaged 1.9 points per game last season along with 2.4 rebounds and 0.3 blocks. It’s also kind of awesome that not only is Collins the worst player in the league, but his twin brother Jarron of Utah is ranked as the fourth worst player in the league. Take that Lopez brothers!

Using the ESPN rankings, here are the five worst players in the NBA:

1. Jason Collins-Minnesota Timberwolves

 

JASON COLLINS

 

2. Brian Scalabrine-Boston Celtics

 

BRIAN SCALABRINE

 

3. Trenton Hassell-New Jersey Nets

 

TRENTON HASSELL

 

4. Jarron Collins-Utah Jazz

 

JARRON COLLINS

 

5. Bruce Bowen-San Antonio Spurs

 

BRUCE BOWEN: TELL YOUR STATISTICS TO SHUT UP!

Bowen’s rating is particularly hilarious. That’s the same Bruce Bowen who has won three championship rings with the Spurs. Obviously, Bowen’s strengths aren’t measured by statistics. The ESPN formula doesn’t measure defense and Bowen has made the NBA All-Defensive team eight times. 

There may be a couple of bugs in ESPN’s computer. They have two-time MVP Steve Nash ranked as the 23rd best player in the league. That’s one spot ahead of backup forward Carl Landry of the Rockets and one spot behind the oft-injured and oft-traded T.J. Ford. The self-professed “best player in the league,” Paul Pierce of the Boston Celtics, is only the number 34 player in the NBA according to the ESPN rankings. Shaquille O’Neal is now “The Big # 126.”
