I stopped reading after Tony

I stopped reading after Tony Allen. He's a top 5 defender in the NBA.

Mediocre means ok or of

Mediocre means ok or of medium quality just because Allen is a good defender does not mean he is an elite player.

Who said elite? There's a big difference between average and elite. He's an elite perimeter defender, and that brings his value as a player up.

You have rookies and 2nd year

You have rookies and 2nd year players in this list. I don't think it's fair to say some of those players are even going to be mediocre. They might not even be in the league in 2-3 years while others might end up being all-stars.

Your List is FLAWED!!! While

Your List is FLAWED!!! While there are some players on that list that are borderline nba players and might not be in the league when the season starts.....

BUT

1.You have some rookies on there that have yet to play a nba game..

2.You have some former all stars that are in the twilight of their careers...

3.Tony Allen is offensively challenge,but he's given Memphis an identity and he's their emotional leader....

4.I expect John Jenkins to be among the most improved players next season..

5.About 30 players on that list have been starters.....

I just thought I'd try

I just thought I'd try something different...you always see list of the best and worst players but never guys that are in between the two. I am by no means a basketball "expert" I just love the game and like to make random statistics and what not.

Tony Allen is a defensive

Tony Allen is a defensive ace. Great rotation guy and a perfect fourth guy for the Grizzlies.

Birdman made a big difference for the Heat. Did they lose more than 10 games (regular season and playoffs) after he showed up? Great energy, finishing inside, and shot blocking skills. Gave a small Heat team some decent size off the bench.

Tony Allen and Birdman may be role players but they are high level role players and key rotation guys on teams in last year's "Final Four".

To me, average guys are interchangeable. Guys like Marvin Williams, Randy Foye, and Landry Fields. Guys that don't really make a difference.

DeMarre Carroll is an average guy right now. BUT, if he concentrates on defense, and turns into a lock down defender then he could be a guy like Tony Allen, a guy with a limited overall skillset but nonetheless a defensive beast, a difference maker, and a high level role player/glue guy (not an interchangeable mediocre guy).

"Average" guys that provide "energy" off the bench include Sam Young and Psycho T. Those guys are decent, but they don't excel in any one area nor do they provide top notch defense. Guys like these are great to have at the end of the bench, but they aren't worth overpaying. They are your 9th guy that provides some extra depth, but they really aren't that essential. You can get an AVERAGE or even below average guy like a Plumlee brother, or a Quincy Acy, or a Joel Anthony to pretty much do the same thing.

A truly AVERAGE player would be the 7th, 8th guy, or 9th guy (most rosters are between 13 and 15 players) that play a little but not really move the needle. Some 6th men are just average too. After you take out the elite 6th men like Jarrett Jack or Ray Allen or somebody, what you basically have are guys that score 10 to 12 points a game off the bench. That's not too hard to do if somebody gets enough shots. I agree with this list that Aaron Brooks is an average player, but he is a guy that could get you 10 to 12 points a game as the first guy off the bench. You might not win a whole lot, but Aaron Brooks is capable of putting up 12 points, 3 assists, and 2 rebounds every night in the right situation.

No hate from me at all, but

No hate from me at all, but leaving the rookies out of this for obvious reasons, and even not say anything about Allen, Nate Robinson or Stephenson (it is your opinion, I completely disagree) , Manu being a mediocre player is a joke to me, I'm sorry. Unless mediocrity can change a game, I'm not with you on that.

You have austin rivers on the

You have austin rivers on the list after he has just finished an epically bad year. He was one of the worst players in the league last year. Now he is young so yes he could improve. But we don't know he will improve. He was terrible. He was not mediocre. He wasn't even good enough to be bad.

Lets Remove Role Players and Unproven Rookies

So after changes your list will look like:

Andris Biedrins
Devin Ebanks
Greg Smith
Marvin Williams
Reggie WIlliams.

You took it too far and missed alot of players... Example
Kwame Brown
Damien Wilkins
Luke Walton
Ryan Hollins
Royal Ivey
alot more, players who are just fillers for the team. trying to get 12 players and stay under

Nate Robinson is so mediocre,

Nate Robinson? Did you even watch the Bulls in the playoffs? He nearly matched Jordan's record for points in a quarter. Seriously, this list is disrespectful to half of the players on the list. Many of them are very essential role players for their teams..

Damien Wilkens, John Salmons,

Damien Wilkens, John Salmons, Tobias Harris, Anthony Morrow, and DeMarre Carroll all have the height, weight, percentages, minutes and advanced metrics to be described as absolutely mediocre.

Hm

Not sure about the list, I mean of course they aren't as great as most were or could be, but I have a BIG problem with putting Shabazz on that list because he has yet to play a single NBA game. I mean sure he's not that mature, but we're talking skill and the playing of the game. Don't judge a book by its cover.

I'd assume mediocre players

I'd assume mediocre players are those who aren't really great at anything. Clearly, Tony Allen doesn't belong to that list.
