Good call scottoant,
Here are some more
Brian Cardinal.... he got a pretty fat contract too and won a championship.
Mark "Mad Dog" Madsen
Its Amazing how some guys last much longer than you think they should..But some are good defenders,good chemistry players ,with high basketball IQs...
If you notice..most of the great coaches were Scrubs...lol
Sasha Vujacic,Bob Sura, and Luke Walton aren't really scrubs. Based off of the original list, a lot of these names don't really qualify as "scrubs". Not even Kwame or Gadzuric for that matter. IMO, players like Balkman are a better example.
Actually Walton is a scrub NOW, but before he was a walking injury, he was actually a pretty versatile player who was often times the facilitator of the offense for LAL. Vujacic scored 27pts in a finals game win where only he and Kobe were winner enough to step up when it counted.
Bob sura ? Dude was A very solid NBA player for the majority of his career.
Yea... Whoever put Bob Sura should be shot lol. He could play some ball. 6' 5" combo guard who was tough and could handle. He really did everything well. Rebounded well. Defended well. He was actually pretty good.
Sura was the good verrsion of a Combo guard. Kirk Hinrich style. Can play either position at a high level without any drop off.
He wasn't the shooter Hinrich was, but I can agree with that comparison.
Bobby didn't have the greatest jumper, but damn if it didn't hold him back from trying. Seemed like he was always putting up 3's negating the fact he couldn't hit. Funny how a guy you could consistently count on 12-5-6 from gets listed as a scrub by ANYONE. I remember wanting LAL to go after him in the early 2000's as that big combo guard that Phil liked.
Ryan Bowen. I remember playing with him in NBA2k1, my first video game, and then I remember seeing him in OCK a couple years ago. He played 10 season, average 2.6 points a game, 2.1 rebounds, and .5 assists a game.
Sorry Joe Wolf, but I gotta go with Joe Wolf. Even though he had a couple nice seasons of 7 and 5, overall, his stat line was 4 points,3 boards and 1 asist per game, and he played 11 seasons. Wow, and his total offensive win shares for his whole career was -3.5.
great call aamir. ryan bowen was completely horrid and useless
Chero' parks is here in france playing for aubenas in national 2 which is THE FOURTH DIVISION...
great to see a player loving his sports so that he keeps playing for nothin' and at a low level just for the sport
haha, it's all good amir, Joe Wolf was indeed a scrub. He was the worst player on the worst team I've ever witnessed as a basketball fan...but now a promising coach and Dairy Queen owner
I feel big men (especially 6'10'' and taller) have an easier time having long careers. Once you reach a certain level of experience, and establish yourself as a professional ( character wise) teams will be glad to sign you and let their 1st and 2nd string big men practice against you every day.
mike wilks. 7 years in the league. 2.5ppg 1rpg & 1apg. I think he made the most out of his talents though and was a hard worker. So much respect to him.
haha the bob sura comment was a joke that me and some of my buddies toss out...i actually liked his game, esp in cleveland...
but to say you could count on 12-5-6 from Sura is just wrong...look at the stats
Here is a look at those first scrubs last year in college listed by Dapot1...just for fun because I'm bored, this lockout is getting old and exhibition NCAA games only go so far.
1 Kevin Ollie- 9.8 ppg 6.4 apg
2. Scott Williams- 14.5 ppg 7.5 rpg
3. Cherokee Parks- 19 ppg 9.3 rpg
4. Pete Chilcutt- 12 ppg 6.6 rpg
5. Ed Nealy- 11.3 ppg 8.3 rpg
6. Doug Overton- 22.3 ppg 5.0 apg 4.4 rpg
7. Andrew DeClercq- 13.2 ppg 8.8 rpg
8. Chucky Brown- 16.4 ppg 8.8 rpg
9. Michael Curry- 16.6 ppg 7 rpg
What about Corie Blount. He had 3.6 points a game, 4.2 boards a game, and played 11 seasons. I vaguley rmember him in his later days with Chicago, and he didn't do much, lol.
What about Marcus Banks. He had some nice seasons, but in general a huge dissapointment, even though he has average 6 points a game for his career, over 8 seasons.
Yeah, 12-5-6 were a little high, but given he usually was a backup, his per 36 numbers were right there on par.
