Best NBA Players Held Back By Minutes
As everyone knows your production in the NBA is really tied to you minutes. I wanted to see who people thought are the players being held back by limited minutes ie..... players like Millsap and Hickson.
If I remember correctly, he averages the most rebounds per 48 minutes in the NBA. Play him more!
and dejuan blair (should be getting heavy minutes)
Nick Young, Bayless, Daniel Gibson, Marcus Banks, Brandon Bass. the only chance for them to prove themselves is if a teammate gets injured. I really liked how Gibson and Banks played when Mo and Calderon were out
Love, but he only plays 30 minutes per game because of his lack of conditioning, kind of like Cousins at the NCAA level. Great numbers per minute, but you probably don't want to play them more than 35 minutes because they're not in peak, physical shape.
The best in the league in many categories are role players because they can make the most of every minute with less playing time. Last year Leon Powe got to the free throw line a higher rate than any other player in the league, but he wouldn't if he played more than 17 mpg because he wouldn't get the ball nearly as much.
charlie villanueva... maybe not this year due to injuries but last year per 36 minutes was a 20 and 10 guy...
also a good place to check this is http://www.basketball-reference.com/
it tells you detailed stats about every player to ever play in the nba... including per 36 mins stats so u can look these kinds of things up...
Whoever said Nick Young I agree with. I was at a Knicks-Wizards game last season and he killed it scored 32 points I believe. It's a shame he has never got consistent minutes because he makes me think of Mitch Richmond just a pure scorer.
adam morrison, dj mbenga, mike beasley, ronald murry
anthony morrow, jerryd bayless, travis outlaw, jj hickson, nazr muhommad.
also to howver said daniel gibson, thank you. when i compare him to mo williams they bring the same traits to the table but mo is a little better at everything but shooting. Gibson was the starting PG for the Cavs a few years back and he should still get consistant minutes.
Speights could easily score 20 points a game if he played 30 minutes a game. The guy can really score.
My top list of players that could put up big numbers if they received minutes would be
1. P.Millsap - guy is a stud enough said
2. M. Speights - he can really score
3. T. Outlaw - he could score 18 - 20 a game with solid 3's and percentages if given a starting spot
4. R. Fernandez - he looks like he is going to be a very good player. I hope he doesn't get the Outlaw treatmen from the Blazers
5. J.J. Hickson - he is still developing but looks like he will be a solid PF and on another team he might start.
6. D. Blair - Should really be receiving 30 minutes a game now, I'm not sure why the Spurs don't give it to him. Top 10 rebounder next season.
7. A. Randolph - he was on this list before the injury. Golden State is a terrible organization.
Jerryd Bayless,Anthony Randolph (even though he is injured),JJ Hickson,Dejuan Blair
I have to say Anthony Randolph ... golden state has no idea what to do with him because they're a mess ... they should trade him
Marcus Banks really? That guy is garbage. I hope everyone realizes that besides Millsap, almost all of these players would be worse with more minutes. There is usually a reason that certain players only play so much.
