I. Introduction

Welcome to the Player Rating FAQ, written by Rashidi.  The purpose of 
this FAQ is to update the ratings of the players in the game, to make 
them as accurate as possible, as well as to represent what they have 
accomplished during the 2003-2004 season, and to educate readers on NBA 
history.

Any updates to player ratings or major changes to the FAQ will be 
listed in the Updates section.  Check it whenever a new version comes 
out.

Updated the rosters.  It's been awhile since my last update, I've been 
having PS2 problems (Disc Read Error) and have been slightly addicted 
to MVP Baseball 2004.  I haven't given up on this, but I definitely 
have spent less time on this guide in March and April compared to every 
other month of this season.  I had the content necessary to submit an 
update, but was too lazy to do so for awhile.

Version 2.3 (3/14/04)
Edited Peja Stojakovic, Shawn Marion, Jamal Mashburn, Andrei Kirilenko, 
Carmelo Anthony, Ron Artest, Lamar Odom, Jerry Stackhouse, Rashard 
Lewis, Richard Jefferson, Jalen Rose, Keith Van Horn, Matt Harpring, 
Corey Maggette, Mike Dunleavy, Tim Thomas, Caron Butler, Desmond Mason, 
Shane Battier, and Kurt Thomas.  Added Christian Laettner (96-97) to 
the players adjusted to specific year section.  Also edited Lebron 
James and Tom Gugliotta from this section.  Created a CAP section for 
the 2004 Draft class.  It will get more in-depth as more information is 
released on the upcoming draft class, especially around draft time.  
Added Dwight Howard and Sebastian Telfair to this section.  Believe it 
or not, I haven't updated in 4 days, I've been too busy playing MVP 
Baseball 2004.

Version 2.2 (3/7/04)
I accidentally decided to edit pretty much every shooting guard.  Added 
Bob Sura, Juan Dixon, Keith Bogans, Roger Mason, Eddie House, Casey 
Jacobsen, Fred Jones, Boris Diaw, Travis Hansen, and Jeff Trepagnier.  
Edited Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Vince Carter, Ray Allen, Michael 
Finley, Michael Redd, Richard Hamilton, Eddie Jones, Allan Houston, 
Latrell Sprewell, Cuttino Mobley, Bonzi Wells, Jason Richardson, Ricky 
Davis, Joe Johnson, Larry Hughes, Kerry Kittles, Jamal Crawford, Doug 
Christie, Emanuel Ginobili, Quentin Richardson, Mike Miller, Reggie 
Miller, Aaron McKie, Dajuan Wagner, Jiri Welsch, Gordan Giricek, Jarvis 
Hayes, Courtney Alexander, Jon Barry, Tony Delk, Deshawn Stevenson, 
Steve Smith, Anthony Peeler, Shandon Anderson, Dermarr Johnson, Casey 
Jacobsen, Trenton Hassell, Kareem Rush, Zoran Planinic, Fred Hoiberg, 
Tamar Slay, and Kedrick Brown.  Oops.  In all fairness, that's probably 
the final update on a lot of these guys.  At least for this year.

Version 2.1 (3/3/04)
Edited Baron Davis, Jason Kidd, Stephon Marbury, Sam Cassell, Gary 
Payton, Steve Nash, Mike Bibby, Andre Miller, Chauncey Billups, Gilbert 
Arenas, Jason Terry, Brent Barry, Jason Williams, Dwyane Wade, Kirk 
Hinrich, Damon Stoudamire, TJ Ford, Antonio Daniels, Darrell Armstrong, 
Troy Hudson, Jeff McInnis, Craig Claxton, Lebron James, Jamal Crawford, 
and Derek Anderson.  Rashidi did all that work for you on his birthday.  
How sweet of him.

Version 2.0 (3/2/04)
They finally put up the February roster download.  The changes made in 
it will be reflected in my next update.  Man, they really screwed a 
bunch of stuff up.  VC really needs to hire me or something, because 
this is getting really bad.  The ratings almost remind me of NBA Live, 
they make little sense.  But anyway, here were my changes.

Added Dion Glover, Bostjan Nachbar, Samaki Walker, and Nazr Mohammed.  
Edited Bobby Jackson, Nick Van Exel, Lebron James, TJ Ford, Dwayne 
Wade, Eric Snow, Earl Boykins, Leandro Barbosa, Charlie Ward, Steve 
Blake, Rafer Alston, Tyronn Lue, Earl Watson, Howard Eisley, Damon 
Jones, Joe Johnson, David Wesley, Aaron McKie, Penny Hardaway, Peja 
Stojakovic, Lamar Odom, Carmelo Anthony, Richard Jefferson, Ricky 
Davis, Caron Butler, Keith Van Horn, Scottie Pippen, Tayshaun Prince, 
Jim Jackson, Devean George, Robert Horry, Michael Sweetney, Othella 
Harrington, Vlade Divac, and Mehmet Okur.  Added Steve Kerr, Michael 
Jordan (Wizards), John Markisch, Hakeem Olajuwon, and Arvydas Sabonis 
to the CAPs section, and edited the Raul Lopez, Ronald Murray, Willie 
Green, Ronald Dupree, Kyle Korver, and Daniel Santiago CAPs.  Updated 
the rosters and depth charts.

Version 1.9 (2/16/04)
Added Dahntay Jones, Jumaine Jones, Chris Mills, Keon Clark, David 
West, Robert Traylor, Lorenzen Wright, Dale Davis, Chris Mihm, Mark 
Blount, Kendrick Perkins, and Jake Voskuhl.  Edited Gary Payton, Baron 
Davis, Steve Francis, Mike Bibby, Andre Miller, Lebron James, Jeff 
McInnis, Marko Jaric, Paul Pierce, Michael Redd, Bonzi Wells, Doug 
Christie, Reggie Miller, Joe Johnson, Keith Van Horn, Toni Kukoc, 
Scottie Pippen, Rick Fox, Jermaine O'Neal, Elton Brand, Zach Randolph, 
Donyell Marshall, Vin Baker, Walter McCarty, Radoslav Nesterovic, Brian 
Grant, Theo Ratliff, Derrick Coleman, Adonal Foyle, Elden Campbell, 
Michael Doleac, and DeSagana Diop.  Added Willie Green to the CAPs 
section, and edited Marquis Daniels.  Updated the rosters.

Version 1.8 (2/8/04)
Added DerMarr Johnson, Clifford Robinson, Al Harrington, Joe Smith, 
Jerome Moiso, and Jake Tsakalidis.  Edited Stephon Marbury, Frank 
Williams, Moochie Norris, Allan Houston, Michael Redd, Penny Hardaway, 
Shandon Anderson, Amare Stoudemire, Antonio McDyess, Shaquille O'Neal, 
Yao Ming, Brad Miller, Erick Dampier, Zydrunas Ilgauskas, Marcus Camby, 
Kurt Thomas, Jamaal Magloire, Dikembe Mutombo, and Samuel Dalembert.  I 
completed my 300th player.  Only 146 or so to go (depending on how many 
are added in the next roster update).  Last year's trade deadline 
roster update was the most in-depth of 2k3's roster updates, so 
hopefully it will hold true this year (especially since there was no 
January roster download).  My next update will probably be after their 
next update.  But don't hold me to that.  Oh, and I won a Sharkport on 
Ebay, so pretty soon I'll have my own downloadable roster.  Stay tuned.

Version 1.7 (2/1/04)
Added Courtney Alexander, Wesley Person, Jon Barry, Anthony Peeler, 
Kareem Rush, Trenton Hassell, Hubert Davis, Morris Peterson, Lamond 
Murray, Eric Williams, Ira Newble, Stacey Augmon, Nene, Maurice Taylor, 
Malik Rose, Eddie Griffin, Christian Laettner, Kelvin Cato, Mark 
Madsen, Stromile Swift, Peja Drobnjak, Brendan Haywood, and Bruno 
Sundov.  Edited Lebron James (for the zillionth time), Kirk Hinrich, 
Earl Watson, Clarence Weatherspoon, Stanislav Medvedenko, Samuel 
Dalembert, and Cezery Trybanski.  Added CAPs for Erick Barkley, Omar 
Cook, Harold Miner, Marquis Daniels, Ronald Dupree, Brian Cardinal, 
Darius Songalia, Gheorghe Muresan, and Zaza Pachulia.  Edited Michael 
Jordan, and Oliver Miller.  Updated the rosters and depth charts.

Version 1.6 (1/18/04)
Added Tierre Brown, Larry Hughes, Quentin Richardson, David Wesley, 
Dajuan Wagner, Voshon Lenard, Darius Miles, Steve Smith, Rodney White, 
Brandon Armstrong, Jim Jackson, Ruben Patterson, James Posey, Glen 
Rice, Monty Williams, Gerald Wallace, Juwan Howard, Drew Gooden, 
Antonio Davis, P.J. Brown, Etan Thomas, Tom Gugliotta, John Wallace, 
Chris Andersen, Erick Dampier, Jamaal Magloire, Adonal Foyle, Theo 
Ratliff, Raef LaFrentz, Danny Fortson, Eddy Curry, Mehmet Okur, Tony 
Battie, Marc Jackson, Shawn Bradley, Calvin Booth, Brian Skinner, 
Samuel Dalembert, Cezery Trybanski, Steven Hunter, DaSagana Diop, and 
Ruben Boumtje Boumtje.  Edited Sam Cassell, Mark Jackson, Matt 
Harpring, Scottie Pippen, Kenny Thomas, Elden Campbell, and Michael 
Doleac.

So I added 42 players, edited 7, and threw in a bunch of CAPs, in about 
11 days.  I'm making amazing progress.

Yinka Dare passed away (normally I would insert a "4 career assists in 
4 pro seasons" passing joke here, but let's be respectful).  In honor 
of Yinka's memory, I have decided to recreate him in all his splendor.  
Check the CAPs section.  Also new to the CAPs section is Mark Price, 
Spud Webb, Patrick Ewing, Rik Smits, Luc Longley, and Bill Wennington.  
Also edited was Kyle Korver and Slavko Vranes.  I started adding more 
info to the CAPs like jersey numbers, height/weight, college, and stuff 
like that.  Looking them up isn't really high on my priority list, so 
if someone else wants to look up the missing info for the CAPS it is 
missing for (please read the CAP section and see which I did it for or 
not) I left missing for and e-mail it to me.  I'll give proper credit 
of course.

Version 1.5 (1/7/04)
ESPN released their December roster update, and they will be reflected 
in my FAQ.  The notable changes in the roster download were changing 
Zach Randolph to an 83 overall, and a few position changes.

I made a VERY big change.  From now on, I will be marking the players I 
edit or add with (NEW-Edit) or (NEW-Add).  It should be obvious what 
each should stand for.  That way you can use Ctrl+F and find what I 
have updated faster and easier.  And you'll need this, because I edited 
quite a few players in the past week.  This is probably the biggest 
edit batch I'll ever do.

I edited *inhale* Jason Kidd, Gary Payton, Sam Cassell, Jason Terry, 
Gilbert Arenas, Andre Miller, Bobby Jackson, Chauncey Billups, Jason 
Williams, Brent Barry, Lebron James, TJ Ford, Dwyane Wade, Carlos 
Arroyo, Damon Stoudamire, Eric Snow, Jeff McInnis, Mike James, Marko 
Jaric, Luke Ridnour, Jamaal Tinsley, Kenny Anderson, Erick Strickland, 
Frank Williams, Brevin Knight, Tyronn Lue, Reece Gaines, Steve Blake, 
Milt Palacio, Kobe Bryant, Tracy McGrady, Michael Finley, Latrell 
Sprewell, Michael Redd, Jason Richardson, Doug Christie, Emanual 
Ginobili, Kerry Kittles, Reggie Miller, Joe Johnson, DeShawn Stevenson, 
Shandon Anderson, Kedrick Brown, Rashard Lewis, Jalen Rose, Andrei 
Kirilenko, Richard Jefferson, Matt Harpring, Grant Hill, Keith Van 
Horn, Scottie Pippen, Aleksander Pavlovic, Bryon Russell, Raja Bell, 
Tim Duncan, Kevin Garnett, Karl Malone, Zach Randolph, Kenyon Martin, 
Antonio McDyess, Carlos Boozer, Chris Bosh, Robert Horry, Othella 
Harrington, Maciej Lampe, Stanislav Medvedenko, Yao Ming, Brad Miller, 
Michael Olowokandi, Marcus Camby, Elden Campbell, and Radoslav 
Nesterovic. *exhale*  Added John Salmons, Shammond Williams, Lindsey 
Hunter, Damon Jones, Bryce Drew, Jiri Welsch, Lamar Odom, Tayshaun 
Prince, Tyson Chandler, Gordan Giricek, Eric Piatkowski, Tariq Abdul-
Wahad, Ndudi Ebi, Travis Outlaw, Antoine Walker, Pau Gasol, Kenny 
Thomas, Rodney Rogers, Jason Collins, Aaron Williams, and Mark Pope.  
So I edited 72 players and added 21.  Not too shabby.  And even though 
I only added 21 players, Walker, Gasol, and Odom were pretty much the 
best players I had yet to include in the FAQ.  You may also notice that 
I now have finished every PG on an NBA roster in the game (read as: 
except for the crappy free agents).

As for the CAPS section, I created Maurice Williams, Matt Carroll, 
Tremaine Fowlkes, Ruben Wolkowyski, Oliver Miller, and also edited Raul 
Lopez, Ronald Murray, and Kyle Korver.  Also re-created the 96-97 
version of Tom Gugliotta, which should please Lionheart.  

Oh yeah, I also updated the rosters, there were plenty of trades.  
Robert Archibald was dealt ten times in a week, and Marbury was traded 
to the Knicks.

I will also be taking steps to deal with the plagaristic websites that 
love my work so much that they feel the need to post it without my 
permission.  All you need to do is ask.  Be professional.
 
Version 1.4 (12/20/03)
Added 19 new players.  Edited Jason Terry, Lebron James, Carlos Arroyo, 
Mike James, Vince Carter, Fred Hoiberg, Carmelo Anthony, Scottie 
Pippen, Devean George, Rick Fox, Zach Randolph, Kenyon Martin, Zydrunas 
Ilgauskas, Elden Campbell, Dikembe Mutombo, and Radoslav Nesterovic.  
Created Robert Pack, Isiah Rider, Sean Elliott, two Larry Johnson CAPs 
(a Charlotte version and a New York version), Brian Scalabrine, and a 
speculational Lebron James in his prime CAP.  Edited the Raul Lopez, 
Ronald Murray, John Starks, and Lonny Baxter CAPs.  Updated the rosters 
and edited the depth charts some more.

Version 1.3 (12/7/03)
My biggest update ever.  Added a whopping 67 new players to the FAQ, 
and also edited the rosters.  Edited Baron Davis, Stephon Marbury, 
Steve Francis, Gilbert Arenas, Chauncey Billups, Lebron James, Carlos 
Arroyo, Mike James, Kevin Ollie, Allan Houston, Bonzi Wells, Shawn 
Marion, Richard Jefferson, Keith Van Horn, Zach Randolph, Vin Baker, 
Shaquille O'Neal, and Michael Doleac.  Created Muggsy Bogues, Milos 
Vujanic, Raul Lopez, Ronald Murray, Dennis Rodman, Lonny Baxter, and 
Daniel Santiago.  Updated the rosters, and added more players.  If you 
check the Progress Review, you'll notice that I finally completed my 
first team, the Knicks.  Although I'm sure a few players will receive a 
few revisions along the way (like McDyess when he comes back) it's a 
good sign that I completed a team 100%.  Heck, you can even find Slavko 
Vranes in the CAP section to complete their roster.  With my luck 
though, they'll probably make a trade.

Version 1.2 (11/17/03)
Sega finally did something in their roster update.  They added 
Alexsander Pavlovic, and also changed a few player positions, which 
I'll be adding to the FAQ.  Added more players. Edited Lebron James, 
Marcus Banks, Alvin Williams, Jamaal Tinsley, Marko Jaric, Carlos 
Arroyo, Milt Palacio, Penny Hardaway, and Slavko Vranes.  Created 
Michael Jordan, Kevin Johnson, and Dennis Scott.

Version 1.1 (11/4/03)
Added quite a few players, mostly at the PG, PF, and C positions.  Also 
edited Jason Kidd and Lebron James.  Created Kyle Korver, Slavko 
Vranes, and John Starks.  Added a few teams to the Created Teams 
section.  

Version 1.0 (10/29/03)
Put out the layout of the FAQ to get it up there.

V. How do the ratings work?

First, what are the rating categories?

Rate (Overall Rating) 
Close (Shot Close) 
Med (Shot Medium) 
3pt (Shot 3pt) 
FT (Free Throw) 
Layup (Layup) 
Dunk (Dunk) 
DnkRng (Dunk Range) - hidden rating 
DnkSt (Dunk Standing) - hidden rating 
Handle (Ball Handling) 
Pass (Pass) 
OffCl (Offense Clutch) - hidden rating 
Sh/Ps (Shoot or Pass) - hidden rating 
PostOff (Low Post Offense) 
PostDef (Low Post Defense) 
Def (Defense) - hidden rating 
Block (Block) 
Steal (Steal) 
DefCl (Defense Clutch) - hidden rating 
RebOff (Offensive Rebounding) 
RebDef (Defensive Rebounding) 
Speed (Speed)
Stam (Stamina)
Dur (Durability) 
DefAwr (Defensive Awareness) 
OffAwr (Offensive Awareness)

Now, what do the ratings do?

Overall Rating - The numerical average of the player's total collection 
of abilities. Not all ratings are equal.  Some affect overall more than 
others, and some don't affect it at all.  Some ratings are also more 
important to certain player positions than others, and thus have more 
of an impact on overall.

Close Shot - Two-point shooting accuracy (inside the paint).

Medium Shot - Two-point shooting accuracy (outside the paint).

3pt Shot - Three-point shooting accuracy.

Free Throw - Free Throw shooting accuracy.

Layup - Layup accuracy, frequency, and creativity.

Dunk - Dunk accuracy, frequency, and creativity.

Dunk Range - The distance from which a player can dunk.
 
Dunk Standing - 

Ball Handling - Determines how effective a player will be at using

VI. The ratings

Ratings will be done in descending order, from highest overall, to 
lowest overall.  This should work best, because the top players are the 
ones most of you will want to edit first.  Doing it by team is bad, 
because players change teams a lot, especially in the offseason.

If you want to find the ratings for specific players, Ctrl + F is your 
best friend.  Seriously.  If you ever complain about not being able to 
find something in an FAQ, it means you are computer illiterate, because 
Ctrl + F is very easy.  Press the Ctrl key.  Hold it.  Then press F.  
Then enter the name of something you are searching for.  Make sure you 
can spell it correctly.

Notes: Nicknamed "Ason Kidd" (No J).  The only other players in NBA 
history to put up assist and rebound numbers like him?  Magic and the 
Big O.  That's actually the main reason why people are making a big 
deal about this Lebron character.  Jason Kidd was actually the original 
Lebron James, he was packing the house in high school the same way, but 
no TV deal.  Supposedly he had NBA court vision by the 8th grade.  
Wouldn't surprise me.  If Kidd retired today, he'd make the Hall of 
Fame.  Not bad for "a PG that can't shoot".  Was named to the All-NBA 
First team for the fifth time in six years this year (the one year he 
missed being 02-03, when 2 SGs were on the first team).

Notes: Was the second best PG in the league last year, and that should 
continue.  Unfairly criticized when Jason Kidd took the Nets to the 
Finals.  Marbury never got to play with Van Horn, Kittles, and Martin 
healthy, and he never had Jefferson, Collins, or MacCulloch on his team 
either.  Of course, the fact that it took the addition of Amare to get 
the Suns back to the playoffs should also say something... Well, Marbury 
is now playing for the Knicks, the team he has always dreamed up 
playing for.  This returns him to Keith Van Horn, a player he once put 
in the talent pool of Jim McIlvaine and Gheorghe Muresan.  But don't 
expect them to hate each other this time.  Marbury is joining a lineup 
where the other 4 starters all have NBA Finals experience.  Come to 
think of it, most of the Knick team does have Finals experience.  The 
departed Eisley and Ward had it, while newcomer Penny also has it.  
Very significant since Marbury will probably be leading the Knicks to 
the playoffs this season.  An older cousin of Sebastian Telfair.

Minnesota.  He can play both guard positions, and the Wolves won't need 
another scorer in the lineup with KG, Spree, and Wally (hey, that

Marbury (1-0).

Notes: Puts up an amazing 21/6/6.  He does have a flaw though.  He's 
not a PG.  He puts up way too many turnovers considering his assist 
total is only 6.  So why doesn't he make the switch?  His best friend 
Cuttino Mobley plays SG.  If Francis switches, Mobley gets traded.  
While putting friends first is an admirable quality, it's not going to 
get him any rings.  Should be very interesting to watch this year.  
Jeff Van Gundy will probably want to utilize Yao a lot more, which 
could result in Francis' scoring go down, but for the better.  JVG is 
also a Pat Riley defense freak, so I wonder what he'll think about the 
Rockets, who were one of the worst defensive teams in basketball.  
Could result in Mobley being dealt, and Francis moving over.  Stay 
tuned.

Notes: There are only a few African born players in the NBA.  Steve 
Nash is one of them (he was born in South Africa).  Everybody's 
favorite non-wrestler/hockey player (like there's a difference) 
Canadian was just named MVP of the Olympic qualifying tournament, after 
leading the tournament in assists.  Was a third string PG behind Jason 
Kidd and Kevin Johnson while with the Suns.  When he arrived in Dallas, 
he broke out at the same time as Nowitzki, transforming Dallas from 
pitiful to great.  He just signed with the Suns, the team that 
originally drafted him.  This is a great move for the Suns, in fact I 
think it was a better move for them than going after Kobe.  Nash is one 
of the best floor generals in the game, he's going to be throwing a lot 
of lobs to Amare, Marion, and Joe Johnson.  He should certainly bring 
them to greater success than Stephon Marbury ever did, and definitely 
will bring Phoenix back to the playoffs as long as their players 
continue to develop and barring injury.

backing him up.  Back with the Grizzlies, Bibby was averaging 8+ 
assists per game.  He was traded for Jason Williams.  What did J-Will 
do with the Kings?  He only averaged 5 apg.  What is J-Will doing now 
that he's not with the Kings, who rob his assist total?  He's averaging 
8+, just like Bibby was.  Derek Fisher notoriously put him on the map.

it was last year (95).

Notes: J-Will, not to be confused with Jay-Will.  One of the most 
exciting players in the league.  Has much improved since his Sacramento 
showboating days.  Still showboats, but no longer commits turnovers.  
Had the second highest assist to turnover ratio in the league, only 
behind Kevin Ollie (which means he had the highest ratio among starting 
PGs).  Was second in the NBA in assists per minute, only behind John 
Stockton.  Second in assists per game, only behind Jason Kidd.  You've 
gotta believe he'd be first if he got a couple more minutes per night 
(only 31.7 mpg).  Has three-point range, but that's it.  If he can 
develop a better offensive game, he's surpassed Mike Bibby in my book.

Notes: Acquired instant fame by winning the Slam Dunk contest in his 
rookie year, imitating Dr J's dunk from the foul line.  White man can 
jump.  Could be a decent scorer if he wanted to.  Averaged 5 apg even 
when Gary Payton was still in Seattle.  Coincidently, the last time the 
Clippers made the playoffs, he was on the team.  For some strange 
reason, Pat Riley traded the still effective Issac Austin for Barry.  
Barry wasn't even added to the playoff roster, and Miami, missing it's 
depth at center, lost in the playoffs as usual.  Easily the best of 
Rick Barry's 3 sons.  Was the first SG to start in Chicago after Jordan

Notes: The Lakers' all-time leader in threes made and attempted.  
Became Dallas' leader in the playoffs.  As much as the Mavs needed a 
SF, he'll be missed.  Sure, he came off the bench for two years.  But 
he's still as good as Gilbert Arenas.  He's certainly a much better 
passer.  The only question is his durability.  Back when he was with 
LA, he was talking about retiring early because of his bad knees.  
Being on the bench in Dallas helped prolong his career.  He shouldn't 
get that many minutes this year, even though he'll be starting again.  
Probably around 30 minutes.  Speedy Claxton shouldn't complain.  NVE 
hates playing on bad teams as much as Latrell Sprewell, so the ride 
won't be without bumps, and Golden State would probably be wise to move 
him to a contender ASAP to take advantage of his high value.  Then 
again, if the Warriors played in the east, they'd be in the playoffs.  
They have 2 decent centers, one of the better rebounding PFs in the 
league, a star PG, a rising SG, another young SG off the bench, and the 
third pick from last year that should love Jamison's PT and NVE's run 
and gun style.  But unless the Blazers decide to dismantle (probably 
not this year), they don't have a shot in the west.

has not struggled as much in comparison (Gary Payton did not score in 
double figures until his third season).  He's going to need to improve, 
because he gets abused by bigger PGs like Stephon Marbury.  Got upset 
that the Spurs wanted Kidd, which would have meant a bench role for 
Parker.  Poor baby.

Notes: One day this summer, I was contemplating getting a motorcycle.  
The next day, Jay-Will got into his motorcycle accident.  Rashidi was 
reminded why he wanted no part of a motorcycle in the first place, and 
is sticking to automobiles.  Jay-Will's career is in jeopardy after his 
serious motorcycle accident.  He carries with him the jinx of the 
number 2 pick, which dates back as far as Sam Bowie.  Bowie was 
famously drafted before MJ.  Other #2 pick gaffes are Shawn Bradley 
before Penny, Darko before Melo, Bibby before VC, Dirk, Jamison, and 
Pierce, Keith Van Horn before Tracy McGrady, Marcus Camby before 
Stephon Marbury, Ray Allen, Antoine Walker, Danny Ferry, taken ahead of 
Sean Elliott, Glen Rice, Tim Hardaway, and Shawn Kemp, Steve Francis 
(forced a trade to Houston for less talented players) before Baron 
Davis, Lamar Odom, Wally Szczerbiak, Rip Hamilton, Andre Miller, Shawn 
Marion, Jason Terry, Ron Artest, and the list probably goes on.  Other 
#2 picks have not come out unscathed: Len Bias (died of cocaine 
overdose after being drafted), Alonzo Mourning (developed kidney 
disorder), Antonio McDyess (has had 3 knee surgeries in 2 years, also 
taken before KG).  The last two #2 picks that ended up being the best 
player in their draft classes were 2 Oakland PGs, Jason Kidd (thanks in 
part to Grant Hill's injuries), and Gary Payton.  Anyway, getting back 
to Jay, the PG position often takes more than one season for a young 
guy to learn, so this accident means we may never see how good Jay 
Williams could have been.  Oh, and he changed his name to Jay from 
Jayson because Jayson Williams the former Nets star drunkenly shot and 
killed his limo driver with a shotgun a month before the draft.  
Rashidi doesn't miss a beat.

Notes: Passes the ball very well, and gets lots of steals, but has no 
J.  Of course, neither did Jason Kidd in his first 2 years, so that's 
somewhat promising.  He has 1,195 assists in his first 2 years.  
Getting a jumpshot will increase his court time, which would make it 
interesting to see where his assist total would be in 10 years.  Not 
getting a jumpshot will probably relegate him to the bench one the 
Pacers get someone who can hit one.  The Pacers got that someone in 
Kenny Anderson, so stay tuned.

Notes: One of those well traveled PGs that can subtley help a team.  
Did a nice job backing up Jason Kidd in back to back Finals 
appearances.  Did he add 3pt range over the years?  No, I don't think 
so.  He always had it, but consistency is what you need to be a good 
shooter.  He actually started in his rookie year with Sacramento, and 
he hit 32 threes.  Last year he had 13, and he has already broken that 
mark this year.  AJ is consistently playing again, which is what you 
can credit a part of it to.

Notes: Was an all-star in New Jersey, and did what Marbury never could 
(get the Nets to the playoffs).  He averaged 18.8 ppg and 9.6 that 
year.  It went downhill since then for him though.  He played on a deep 
Blazer team.  He averaged 7.1 assists in 3000 minutes but then only 5.7 
as his minutes took a big hit.  He went to the Celtics under Pitino, 
and saw his assists drop even more as Boston used Antoine Walker at 
point forward.  It didn't help that Anderson was a shoot first PG.  
Just as Boston was about to give up on him, he led them to the 
Conference Finals.  Then they decided to trade Anderson.  Too bad 
though, because the Celtics missed him last year when they had to go 
with Tony Delk and J.R. Bremer at PG.  And what do you know?  Now he's 
the starting PG in Indiana, in place of Jamal Tinsley who was fifth in 
the league in assists last year.  Looks like Anderson still has some 
value.

Notes: Highlight of his career came when the Garden chanted his name... 
Charlie, Charlie... Won the Heisman Award in college, but was considered 
by most too small to play football.  I'd have to agree, since he's been 
plagued by knee trouble, and football is much more physical.  His 
football physicality shows when he's drawing charges from the 
opposition.  During his career he was the best QB in NY every year, at 
least until Chad Pennington.  That's a knock on Kerry Collins and Vinny 
Testaverde, if you weren't aware.

Notes: Did well in summer leagues.  Supposedly a good defender, which 
would impact the Knicks if they decide to trade Charlie Ward to a 
contender.  Didn't show it last year... John Stockton and Mark Jackson 
toyed with him after Don Chaney boasted that "he wasn't worried about 
Frank being able to handle the slower veterans".  He had one good game 
where he hit 3 three pointers and had 11 points, which kept his ppg 
from being below 1.0 this year (subtract those 11, and he had 17 points 
in 21 games).  His FG% was .273, beating out the likes of Tshkilvili 
and Wagner for the title of worst shooting rookie.  In all fairness, he 
DID miss training camp with an injury, but he has journeyman written 
all over him.  He's not good enough of a passer, he's a shoot first PG 
like Milos Vujanic.  Except Vujanic is the best PG in Europe (averaged 
25.8 ppg and 3.2 apg), and Williams would not be if he went there.

Notes: In NBA 2K3, Eisley was by far the most underrated player in the 
game.  Even coming off a bad season, I don't see how Sega thought it 
fit to rate him lower than Brent Price.  Then again, they saw fit to 
make Allan Houston a terrible shooter too, so maybe they're just trying 
to keep the Knicks from being too good, since vets do have high 
overalls.  But 60 overall for Eisley is just ridiculous, considering 
they gave a 70 to Frank Williams.  Did they forget he was Stockton's 
backup during the finals run, or that Eisley's three-point accuracy, 
assist to turnover ratio, and assists per minute have consistently 
ranked among the top 10-15 in the league when he's not benched in favor 
of Mark Jackson?  Eisley hadn't missed a game since 95-96 either, until 
his third string assignment.  It looks like they fixed this mistake in 
ESPN, but in the wrong ratings.  Eisley is not good at stealing the 
ball, so I don't get how they gave him a 75.  They also decided to 
reward his high 39% 3pt shooting and 131 three's made with a relatively 
low 78 in 3pt.  He'll split time at PG and SG this season, as the 
Knicks give more time to Frank Williams.

Notes: Quite a journeyman, this is his tenth team in 7 seasons.  He 
also played in the CBA, averaging 12.8 ppg, 3.3 rpg, and 4.9 apg in 132 
CBA games.  Led the league in Assist to Turnover ratio last year.  
Obviously job security would be important to him, so the Cavs signed 
him to a 5-year deal.  Good move for Ollie, bad move for the Cavs.  
Ollie became the third string PG when they traded for J.R. Bremer, 
which probably means Ollie will be traded AGAIN at some point (though 
he'll stick around in Cleveland for now, since nobody wants a third 
string PG with a 5 year deal).

Notes: Waived by the Nets last March.  You can download a movie file of 
him beating the crap out of Kobe in a fight, by running a sear on Kazaa 
or another P2P DL service.  I assume that he won't be back for three 
reasons.  One, his age, he's 36.  Two, There are both younger and more 
experienced PGs available. I'd take Rod Strickland or Tim Hardaway over 
Childs any day, and if I wanted a young PG I'd take Smush Parker or 
Tierre Brown. Three, none of those PGs have had trouble with alcholism.  
Well, except maybe Strickland, but only when he's driving.

Notes: Kobe always gets compared to MJ.  Now let's be fair.  MJ cheated 
on his wife while they were married, but he was never dumb enough to 
get caught.  This is the prevailing reason why Kobe, no matter what he 
does in the rest of his career, will always be one level below MJ.  
Kobe got caught with his hand in the cookie jar, MJ never did.  As for 
his playing accomplishments, he was the youngest player to ever play in 
an all-star game, he set the NBA record this year for threes in a game 
with 12, and became the youngest player to get 10,000 points in NBA 
history.  Which puts him on a normal pace if he sees jail time.

Notes: King James appears to be the most NBA ready HS player to date.  
But keep in mind that he is only 18 years old.  The highest ppg total 
ever for an 18-year-old player is 7.6 by Kobe Bryant.  Lebron will 
probably break that because he'll get starters minutes, but his 
shooting percentages won't be pretty.  Well, looking at how he's done 
so far, he's put up some big numbers, but he's also done it in 41 
minutes per game.  I don't expect him to have those minute totals 
throughout the season and still remain productive.  He's still only 18, 
and the toughest adjustment a rookie has to make is an 82 game long 
season.  Lebron may have come sprinting out of the gate, but an NBA 
season is a marathon, not a 50 meter dash.  17/6/6 isn't as impressive 
as people are trying to make it out to be when he's getting 41 minutes 
per game.

comes to most starting SGs.  But do we see the Blazers trying to 
convert Derek Anderson to a PG?  If you don't want him starting at SG, 
then let him come off the bench

Notes: First in the NBA in Steals per Turnover last season.  Kittles 
runs on the break superbly, which makes him a great teammate for Jason 
Kidd.  Shot .466 and .467 in 2 seasons with Kidd.  With Marbury, his 
FG% hovered around 43%.  Was a three-point threat earlier in his 
career, but doesn't take nearly as many anymore.  Strange, considering 
he's really the only one on the team who is good from that range.  So 
the legend goes, the Nets initially intended to draft Kobe, but Kobe 
threatened the Nets that he would pull a Steve Francis (refuse to sign 
a contract) if they drafted him, so they took the safe route and 
drafted Kittles instead.  The Hornets called Kobe's bluff and were able 
to get Divac out of LA, which the Lakers didn't mind since they needed 
to salary dump to beat Orlando's offer to Shaq.  Was traded to the 
Clippers for a second round pick.

Notes: The all-time leader in three pointers made and attempted (2,464-
6,188).  His 24,305 points are 14th all time, and 2nd among active 
leaders.  The only person more clutch at the end of games was MJ, and 
like MJ, he saved his best for Madison Square Garden.  Will that be 
enough to get him into the hall of fame?  I hope so, but he's got three 
things going against him.  He's only a 5-time all-star, he never made 
higher than the All-NBA Third team, and he has no rings.  I think it 
says a lot though that every time he got out of the first round, he 
also got past the second round.  That should count for something.  In 
fact, between 93-94 and 99-00, the Pacers made the Conference Finals 5 
times, and went to the NBA Finals in 99-00.  In 95-96 Miller was only 
able to play in game 5 of the first round because he was injured (and 
scored 29 points, another testament to his clutch ability), and in 96-
97 the team missed the playoffs by 5 games because Rik Smits and 
Derrick McKey missed 30 games with injury.  This was back when it took 
44 wins to clinch a playoff spot in the east, not 39.  Anyway, That's 5 
Conference Finals appearances in 7 years. Definitely a good case for 
the Hall of Fame.  The Pacers were also the ONLY TEAM, I repeat, the 
ONLY TEAM to ever take the second Bulls Dynasty to 7 games.  In three 
years, the Bulls never once faced a Game 7 from a team not named the 
Pacers, and that includes the Jazz whom many consider to be their best 
competition back then.  It wasn't, it was Indiana.  For a laugh, you 
can see Miller beat the crap out of the MJ imitator, Kobe (who like a 
b**** attacked him from behind at the end of a game) on top of the 
scorer's table, by downloading the movie off Kazaa or another P2P DL 
service.  He's also famous for fighting the real MJ (both were 
suspended at least a game), but I have yet to find the clip.  Cheryl 
Miller is also his sister, and they used to rake in cash playing 2 on 2 
together for money.

Notes: Birth name is Anfernee, nicknamed Penny because his grandmother 
said he was "pretty as a penny".  A rising superstar cut down by 
injuries.  Vince Carter is another knee injury away from becoming Penny 
II, but that might be stretching it.  Penny was on the All-NBA First 
Team twice, that's how good he was.  Pre-injury, he was scoring 21 ppg 
on 50% shooting with 7 assists, 5 boards, and 2 steals per game as 
Shaq's sidekick.  One of the most popular players in last 10 years, his 
Lil Penny commercials inspired bobbleheads everywhere.

I've seen in my whole basketball career.  In 18 starts for the Hawks, 
he averaged 16.4 ppg, 9.3 rpg, and 5.9 apg.  PUT HIM ON YOUR FANTASY 
TEAM!  Maybe if the Hawks suck badly again next year, and they make 
Sura their PG and slide Terry over to SG, Sura will average a triple 
double like Oscar Robertson.  One can only dream.  Sura had three 
triple doubles in a row, an NBA record, but had his final one 
controversially taken away by the league as it ruled that a shot he 
missed on purpose and rebounded for his 10th rebound should not have 
counted as a shot attempted.

basketball early?  Wasn't he supposed to go earlier than ninth in the 
draft?  MJ loved the kid, he was considering trading the first pick 
(Kwame) for someone good so he could move down and draft White.  Now, 
he's a mess.  What do we know about White?  On the worst team in 
basketball, he managed these numbers as a starter in 19 games.  10.9 
ppg, 3.8 rpg, 2.9 apg with a .399 FG% in 27.5 mpg.  He certainly isn't 
a Ricky Davis stat padder.  I also assume he changed his position to SG 
now, which is kind of perplexing.  He's 6'9 and 230 pounds.  Shouldn't 
he be playing SF?  And with these kinds of advantages, why is he not 
being successful at posting up smaller guards?  He's the biggest guard 
in the entire NBA, and he can't even shoot 40% as a starter?  For what 
it's worth, he was also third in the NBA in Turnovers per minute.  
Looks like he's quickly becoming the next Lee Nailon.

Great for the Nets, because they need backups at PG and SF, as well as 
an eventual replacement for either Kittles or Harris.

Notes: According to an interview taken 2 years ago (correct me if I got 
it wrong), there are only a few players Shaq will allow his kids to 
watch:  Kobe Bryant, Allen Iverson, Tim Duncan, Gary Payton, Tracy 
McGrady, and Paul Pierce.  Shaq goes on to say "Paul Pierce is the 
truth".  Pierce's playoff stats this year?  27.1 ppg, 9.0 rpg, 6.7 apg, 
2.1 spg, 1.1 bpg, and set an NBA record by going 21-21 from the FT line 
in a playoff game against the Pacers.  Rashidi says "Paul Pierce is the 
truth".

Notes: "Matrix" has improved every year and is currently the best SF in 
the league.  Last year he was even better than MJ.  Marion had 21/9/2 
and was among the leaders in steals and averaged lots of blocks 
(especially for a SF) while Jordan had 20/6/4 with fewer steals and a 
lot fewer blocks... Mashburn had 21/6/5 but had fewer steals/blocks and 
worse defense than Jordan. He guarded MJ at the end of last year's all-
star game.  He was the only player in the league to be in the top 20 in 
scoring (17th), rebounding (8th), and steals (3rd) last year.  In 01-02 
he was one of only two players to be in the top 40 in seven of nine 
major statistical categories, the other player being Kevin Garnett. One 
thing I notice though, is his minutes.  He's an ironman, he averaged 
41.6 mpg.  Yeah, big deal, so what?  Well, Marion has been to the 
playoffs 3 times, and each time, he averaged fewer points in the 
playoffs than he did in the regular season.  He also shot the ball 
poorly.  Is it bad luck, or conditioning?  It can't be Marbury taking 
more shots, because it happened the 2 years Kidd played with Marion in 
Phoenix too...  You know what's funny?  I remember watching the draft, 
and when the Suns took him, I was shocked.  I had Mitch Lawrence's mock 
draft in front of me.  Shawn Marion?  Who is that?  He's not even 
supposed to be taken in the first round!  And the Suns wasted a lottery 
pick (ninth pick) on him?  Man are they stupid!?  No, the only stupid 
one it seems would be Mitch Lawrence.

Notes: Rashidi's claim to fame - Odom went to high school about 10 
blocks from my house.  How did I come to know about Lamar Odom?  Back 
in the day, my friends and I were talking about what NBA players we'd 
met.  One of my friends said he met Anthony Mason at a sneaker store.  
My other friend who was in ninth grade at the time, and went to Christ 
the King HS, said "Lamar Odom is NBA".  Makes me wonder what it's like, 
knowing that you're a lock for the NBA at the age of 15... An athletics 
director I know says Odom is the most talented player he's ever seen, 
but he was also the stupidest kid he'd ever seen, going as far as to 
say "he was stupid as a brick".  For what it's worth, that director was 
also as dumb as a brick, because he absolutely 100% swore to me that 
Nick Van Exel had been traded to the Celtics that day, and he was 
pissed because that meant Boston wouldn't need Omar Cook (also of 
Christ the King lore).  Rashidi Insider Info at it's finest.

Notes: The next MJ... where have we heard that before?  He averaged 29.8 
ppg for Detroit (second in the league) a few years ago, yet is only a 
two time all-star.  It would help if he weren't a chemistry cancer.

Notes: The 03-04 Sixth man of the year.  Raised his FG% 65 points to be 
third in the league.  Was traded for the #5 pick, which reunites him 
with former Warrior teammate Gilbert Arenas.  Both like to take lots of 
shots, and that's without throwing Larry Hughes and Jerry Stackhouse 
into the equation.  The Wizards could have the worst chemistry in years 
if they don't do something about those 2 SGs.

Notes: Was sixth in the NBA in ppg in 97-98, yet did not make the all-
star team.  Should have made the team more than once, but that's what 
happens when you play in dead cities like Vancouver and Atlanta.  He 
has career averages of 20.7 ppg, 8.3 rpg, 2.9 apg, but only one all-
star game.  Would be puzzling, but the records of the teams that he 
plays for are abysmal, which leaves questions about how much better he 
really makes a team.

Notes: Van Horn played great in NY.  He played above all expectations 
(for instance, that he was going to suck), and was having his best 
season in years.  He was the Knicks best player pre-Marbury.  Yes, he 
was even better than Allan Houston.  Van Horn was 17/7/2, Houston was 
20/2/2.  Van Horn can definitely help the team oriented Milwuakee, Van 
Horn is probably the best rebounder on their team after Joe Smith, and 
is clearly a better rebounding SF than Tim Thomas.

Notes: Shares the NBA record for threes in a half with 8.  The athletic 
player that the Knicks have needed.  He can shoot like Van Horn, but is 
a worse rebounder.  That's fine by the Knicks though, they don't really 
need Van Horn's rebounding as much with Mutombo and Thomas on the front 
line.  Still, my gut feeling says the Knicks will miss Van Horn more 
than they think.  Tim Thomas is a lot more useful off the bench than he 
is starting.

Notes: Good bench player, but definitely not starter quality.  Makes 
you realize how much Jerry West put into the Laker dynasty.  George got 
a good contract from Mitch Kupchak, but has only shot over 40% once in 
his career.  Every year, the Lakers have gotten a little worse since 
Mitch took over.  He should consider himself lucky that Shaq and Kobe 
attracted Karl and Gary, because he sure wouldn't have been able to 
done that on his own... his job was extended about 3 years because of it.  
With the Laker dynasty about to undergo major changes, Kupchak will 
likely get the axe if things don't pan out.

Notes: Looks like he's going to be better than fellow Baby Bull Eddy 
Curry.  He's certainly going to have the rebounding, athleticism, and 
shot blocking of KG, but not likely the shooting touch or passing.  Was 
it worth trading Elton Brand for him?  Probably not.

Notes: Was the MVP of the McDonalds High School All-Star game way back 
in 1999, scoring a record 31 points.  Has done absolutely nothing in 
his basketball career since then.  One of those high school busts 
people fail to talk about when they bring up how high schoolers are so 
good for the game.  No, great players are good for the game.  Lebron 
and KG were good for the game.  They came in developed.  Bender came in 
7 feet and skinny as a doornail.  He's been injury prone because of it, 
and he's probably the worst rebounding 7 footer in the league.  Similar 
to Darius Miles, was taken high out of high school on size/potential 
rather than skill/size/potential.

Notes: Can't say I didn't see this coming.  Monty always projected to 
have a short career.  He had an irregular heartbeat while at Notre 
Dame, and it meant that he'd never really be able to play much more 
than 20 mpg as a pro.  He was a good role player while he lasted, very 
unselfish, and good in the lockerroom.  I wouldn't be surprised to see 
him end up being one of Doc Rivers' assistant coaches in a couple 
years.

Notes: Backup SF on the Lakers, and son of NBA Hall of Famer/Color 
Commentator Hall of Shamer Bill Walton.  Should have a good year, 
especially because Fox will be out to start the season.  With his 
passing ability, vision, and intangibles, he should flourish when he is 
in the lineup with the Lakers 4 superstars.  He didn't have a big 
impact until the NBA Finals, where he averaged 4.5 assists in 19.3 
minutes.  I think he's the favorite to be the starting SF next year.  
Even if he comes off the bench, he's certain to get more PT because Fox 
and Russell will certainly be gone.

Notes: Another player who capitalized big on the three point line being 
moved in during his prime.  Set the all-star game records for points in 
the second half (24) and third quarter (20).  Ranks third all-time in 
three pointers made, behind Reggie Miller and Dale Ellis.  Also the 
franchise leader in scoring average for the Hornets (23.5 ppg) and the 
leading scorer in Heat franchise history (9,248 points).  May have 
played his last season in the NBA.

Notes: Career is in jeopardy due to constant injuries.  Used to be an 
ironman, playing 80 games and 3,000 minutes a year.  He played 399 
games (out of 410) in his first 5 seasons, compared to 169 games (out 
of 410) in his last 5 seasons.  He won't even play a minute this year, 
his 11th season, so that will soon be 169 out of 493. He's played 
practically as much as Grant Hill has lately.  His name keeps appearing 
on the trading block, only because of salary cap relief he can offer.  
He's a free agent at the end of the year, and given that his body has 
all but completely broken down, this could very well be Mills' last 
season in the league.

Notes: The former Oliver St. Jean is a shooting guard that never 
learned how to shoot. It shouldn't require a brain surgeon to see he's 
on the verge of scrubbing out of the league. Would you believe he 
played in 8 playoff games and only 14 regular season games (due to 
injury)?  It just struck me as kind of odd.  He probably has the worst 
contract in the entire NBA.  5 years and 35 million left?  Ick.  
Regardless, he could still be a decent backup on the right team.  
Unfortunately, Dallas isn't the right team.

Notes: The 2 time reigning MVP won his second ring in four seasons, and 
you can't stick an asterisk next to this one.  Has torn up the league 
since his arrival.  Just look at his recognitions.  He's the first 
player since, fittingly, David Robinson, to be on an all-nba team and a 
defensive team in each of his first 6 seasons (Robinson had 7), and 
he's the first player in history to be named to the NBA First team in 
his first 6 seasons (the closest is Larry Bird, who made the first team 
in each of his first 4 seasons).  Among the tops in the league in 
points, rebounds, and blocks each year.  But you know what I like most 
about him?  His assist totals.  Look at his points, rebounds, assists, 
blocks, and FG% totals per round of the playoffs this season.  First 
Round - 18.7 ppg, 16.0 rpg, 5.2 apg, 3.5 bpg. 521 fg%.  Second Round - 
28.0 ppg, 11.2 rpg, 4.8 apg, 1.3 bpg, 529 fg%.  Conference Finals - 
28.0 ppg, 16.7 rpg, 5.8 apg, 3.0 bpg, 569 fg%.  NBA Finals - 24.7 ppg,  
15.4 rpg, 5.3 apg, 5.3 bpg, 495 fg%.  Absolutely insane.  In case you 
are wondering, Duncan's assist totals exceeded Tony Parker's assist 
totals in each round of the playoffs.  Definitely the heir to Shaq's 
kingdom, and unlike Shaq, he didn't jump ship and screw over his former 
team.

Notes: MVP of the 03-04 season.  The runner up MVP in 02-03 to Tim 
Duncan.  Didn't seem to have any luck with getting out of the first 
round, but not so this year.  The T'Wolves have given him his best team 
in years.  I gotta say I was wrong about the T'Wolves this year.  I 
said they didn't improve much, because they had no bench.  Well, the 
bench has stepped up, especially Hoiberg, Hassell, and Madsen.  The 
T'Wolves are probably one Troy Hudson away from a championship, 
especially considering how much Cassell is struggling with his back 
injury.

Notes: Was the youngest player in NBA history during his rookie season.  
Sat behind Rasheed Wallace and Brian Grant early in his career with 
Portland, they traded him for Dale Davis.  Talk about bone-headed... 
Jermaine has become the best big man in the east.  Has averaged a 
double double the past two seasons, and has improved his ppg total each 
year since coming to Indiana.  A selfish player though, doesn't make 
his teammates much better... you'd think Reggie Miller would be thriving 
with a post presence like Jermaine.

Notes: The first Clipper to make the All-Star team since Danny Manning.  
The Clippers robbed Chicago by sending them Tyson Chandler.  How do I 
figure they ripped them off?  Well, look at it this way.  Brand has 
been averaging at least 18 ppg and at least 10 rpg for his entire 
career.  Most Bulls fans would say that all Chandler has to do is equal 
that, and it's a fair trade.  But I don't look at it like that.  
Chandler would have to EXCEED Brand's production for it to be even.  
Right now, Brand could have been putting up about 20/10 for Chicago, 
and they'd most definitely be in the playoffs this year.  If it takes 
Chandler 4 years to reach Brand's level, why shouldn't they have just 
kept Brand for those 4 years?  Brand is not only one of the best 
rebounders in the league (led it in offensive rebounding last year) he 
was also fourth in the league in blocks behind the elite trinity of 
Ratliff, Wallace, and Duncan.  Chandler is unlikely to ever play at 
this level, which begs the question - why did the Bulls trade an 
established rising star like Brand for a player that at best has the 
potential to be Brand's equal?

hottest ticket in the league this year.  He was traded to Atlanta, and 
then traded to Detroit.  It's rumored that it's only a rental, as the 
team wants to clear cap room to spend on Mehmet Okur, and that Sheed 
plans to sign with the New York Knicks for the MLE this summer, but I 
would not be surprised to see him in a Pistons uniform next season.

and 7 rpg in 26 minutes as a starter (7 games).  The consistency hasn't 
been there, and he's had to miss games because of how stressful his 
injury was.  Adding to the complexity of his situation is he's a free 
agent, and his team already has a young athletic PF.  McDyess will 
likely be a backup from now on, but it's unknown where.  He can still 
help a bunch of teams in a limited capacity, but his role can't be too 
large, or else.

Notes: A great player whose career was killed by the NBA lockout.  A 
lot of people are probably wondering what happened to Kemp.  Well, he 
opted to play in Spain this season, and has orally committed to playing 
for the Oklahoma Star, the USBL team that he co-owns.  Will he be back 
in the NBA?  He still has the talent, and he's only 34, so time will 
tell.

Notes: Currently mired in a huge PF glut in NY.  Once Othella 
Harrington is traded, he should get more minutes.  He had a horrid 
start, but really turned it up towards the end of the season.  He had a 
1.35 EFF in his first 17 games, and finished the season with a 6.24 
EFF, which is a pretty good turnaround since he only played 42 games 
and 11.8 mpg.  His FG% by month from January through April was 1.000, 
.609, .529, and .553.  He averaged 7.9 ppg and 5.1 rpg in 15.9 mpg in 
April.  It would be interesting to see what he'd do in 25-30 minutes.

Notes: Was traded for Dirk Nowitzki and Pat Garrity, easily the worst 
trade in the last decade.  Garrity was then traded for Steve Nash, and 
all of a sudden, the Mavs are annually a 50+ win team, after having the 
longest drought in basketball.  Who knew that drafting Traylor would 
net them 35+ more wins per season?

Visit it, if you dare.  Also, the only other player in NBA history that 
shares the same last name of NBA great Nate Archibald.  I can't believe 
that when I search NBA and Archibald in my web browser, I'd have to 
actually filter sites related to this scrub.

Notes: Has more nicknames than Sean Puff Diddy Daddy Combs.  The most 
dominant player in the NBA, when all is said and done he'll probably go 
down as one of the top 5 centers of all-time.  The other 4 are Wilt, 
Russell, Jabbar, and Hakeem.  Was the first player to be named Player 
of the Week in his first week in the league.  Broke two backboards 
dunking during his rookie year.  You can download the videos off Kazaa 
or another P2P download service.  Was selected as one of the 50 
greatest players of all time, but prematurely IMO.  The selections were 
made in 1996.  Shaq had only played 4 seasons.  What if he had gotten a 
serious injury afterwards?  Then you've got a player who would end up 
not being the best of all-time. What if Shaq had pulled a Vince Carter?  
VC was the next MJ... then he got injured.  What about Kobe and T-Mac?  
Right NOW they're scoring 30 ppg, but who knows how long that will 
last?  Does either deserve to make such a prestigious list?  In 
retrospect, everything worked out, but I still think a 4-year vet 
should have been forced to wait for the top 100 list.

Notes: Deservedly the #1 pick, proving that 1 in every billion Chinese 
people could play in the NBA.  On that note, I'm willing to bet that 
only 1 in every billion Chinese people is 7'6.  Undeservedly an all-
star, which goes to show how flawed the Internet voting system is.  
Cross the most populated country in the world with the world's most 
accessible ballot... it wouldn't surprise me if Yao started over Shaq 
each year for the next 5 years, regardless of what Yao does on the 
court.  He could bomb and put up 8/5 and still get elected. 
Undeservedly the rookie of the year runnerup, behind Amare Stoudemire.  
It's not so much that Yao was markedly better, but the voting wasn't 
even that close.  What did Amare do that was markedly more effective 
than Yao?  Phoenix made the playoffs, that's it.  You can attribute 
that to Shawn Marion being a helluva a lot better as a second option 
than Cuttino Mobley.  At the very least, they should have been co-
winners.  Deserved more touches in the Houston offense. Sorry Stevie, 
we know how much you hated passing to Hakeem Olajuwon, but when your 
center is hitting a high percentage on the inside, maybe you should 
think about getting it down there more. Deserves Jeff Van Gundy.  Jeff 
Van Gundy deserves Yao.

Notes: Excellent shot blocker, good rebounder, and runs great for a big 
man, but not durable to play a full season as a starter.  The one 
season he didn't have injury problems was his first season in NY where 
he came off the bench the whole year, and keep in mind that was the 50 
game lockout year.  He has never played more than 63 games in a season, 
which means he misses at least 19 games per year.  In his best season, 
he averaged 12/12 with 2.2 bpg and a 525 FG% in only 34 mpg.  His 
family was held hostage during the playoffs that year, and Camby was 
taken out of the series which the Knicks eventually lost in 5 to the 
Raptors.

Notes: Quite possibly the worst #1 pick in NBA history.  Only the 
Clippers would draft a 23-year-old project with the first pick in the 
NBA draft.  Kandi is 28 now, and he's not going to get much better.  
The Clippers thought so low of Kandi that they let him walk away 
without compensation.  What a waste of a first pick.  1998 was one of 
the better draft classes in recent memory.  The Clippers could have 
taken Mike Bibby, Antawn Jamison, Vince Carter, Paul Pierce, or Dirk 
Nowitzki.  But that's the Clippers for you.  I think if they did it all 
over again... they probably would have taken Robert Traylor instead.

They're inconsistent with everything.  Mutombo has been named Defensive 
Player of the Year FOUR times, yet he has only made the Defensive First 
Team THREE times.  Explain that one, boys.  Anyway, Mutombo set a 
playoff record with 31 blocks in a 5 game playoff series (That's over 6 
bpg) against Seattle in 93-94.  That Denver team became the first 8th 
seed to ever defeat a 1st seed in the playoffs.  Talk about PWNage.

was the rookie of the year in 2001 (yep, that was a really weak year).

career .420 FG% (.364 in the playoffs).  The Nets really need to 
upgrade if they want to return to the NBA Finals.

Notes: One of the best shot blockers in the last decade.  An underrated 
and often criticized player that would benefit from getting out of 
Dallas.  Bradley has blocked ten or more shots ten times, and he has 
often accomplished in fewer minutes than other great shotblockers like 
Dikembe Mutombo.  Sadly will not garner enough playing time to scale 
the list of all-time greats.  He badly needs to get out of Dallas, who 
would prefer to use Antoine Walker at center instead of the half-court 
oriented Bradley.

the player with the next fewest minutes is Shawn Bradley, who got 10 in

Notes: The best NBDL player ever.  I find it kind of hard to believe 
that he actually spent time there this season, since he's a pretty good 
option for a third string center.  He even averaged 7.9 ppg in his 
second season and averaged 6.0 ppg in 3 playoff games.  Why is he 
fighting for a job while guys like Mark Pope are doing nothing on NBA 
rosters?

VII. Created Players (aka the CAPs section)

Upon request, I'll rate certain players.  Rookies, or former NBA 
players.  If you have a request, e-mail me.  But keep in mind that I 
don't watch college basketball, so accurately making a CAP for a rookie 
may take some time.

On the concept of "Players adjusted to a certain year", this is there 
because often players want to cap players from, you guessed it, a 
certain year.  A popular request seems to be the Chicago Bulls.  As 
most of us know, Jordan in the game is not the same player as the 
Jordan who won 6 titles.  In fact, Jordan was a different player during 
his first 3 titles than he was in his last 3.  

Other players suffer setbacks in their career, and aren't the same.  
Larry Johnson for instance, was a bonafide superstar when he came into 
the league, and then back injuries killed his career.  Some people will 
want Charlotte LJ, some will want NY LJ.

Shawn Kemp and Vin Baker are players in the league that also used to be 
good, but aren't very good right now.  These are all just examples of 
what can appear in that section.  Of course, Rashidi doesn't have all 
the time in the world (though it's sometimes hard to tell), so he'll 
get to these when he can.  As said, e-mail me with suggestions.

Oh, and lastly, I don't care about CAP appearances.  I don't make them 
so don't bother asking me how to make Lebron's face and such.  A player 
will still play the same, no matter what his hair looks like.

Height/Weight: 6'1 - 190 lbs.

Notes: Time to hear another Christ the King/St. Johns sob story.  Cook 
entered the draft, and was considered the second best PG in the draft, 
despite not being very good.  It was a shallow year for PGs (well, it 
was just a shallow year, period, but that's besides the point), so Cook 
figured he could sneak into the first round - meaning a guaranteed 3 
year deal.  Cook was projected to go no later than 22nd to Orlando, and 
be the second PG drafted.  Instead, here is how things turned out.  
Orlando ended up drafting PG/SG Jeryl Sasser (the first PG taken, 
that's how bad the draft was) 22nd.  Utah took Raul Lopez 24th, Jamaal 
Tinsley went 27th, Tony Parker went 28th.  Gilbert Arenas was taken 
with the 31st pick, but he started his career as a SG so he doesn't 
count.  Omar Cook was then taken by Orlando with the 32nd pick (not the 
22nd pick).  Meaning, no guaranteed deal.  Not good, because Cook left 
as a college freshman - he needed to further develop his skills, most 
notably his jumpshot.  As a freshman, he turned heads by averaging 8.7 
apg, but he also made people cower by shooting a nasty 36% from the 
field, 30% on college threes.  Cook was dealt to Denver to satisfy an 
earlier trade, and he was cut during Denver's training camp.  Cook has 
tried to land a job in the NBA and has impressed in various training 
camps (Boston last year, and this year he went down to the wire with 
Jamison Brewer for the final roster spot) but he has yet to land an NBA 
job.  He just can't shoot.  Let's look at nbadraft.net's scouting 
report on Cook.  Ball Handling: 10.  Passing: 10.  Leadership: 10.  
Defense: 9. Jump Shot: 4.  Yep, 4.  It's that bad. In the the 
exhibition opener this year, he had 13 points, 1 assist, 2 steals, and 
was 4-4 from the field, 3-3 on 3's.  However, he followed that up by 
going 2-20 from the field the rest of the way. He's currently leading 
the NBDL in assists with 8.7 apgIf Cook can improve his jumper, he'll 
become a decent backup, but if he can't, he'll remind people of Rick 
Brunson.  The moral of the story?  Stay in school.

(probably the only person in the league who does), so he brought him to 
the Knicks to be their fourth string PG.

of it back on the defensive end.  Definitely has star potential if he

FG%.   Daniels 15.8 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 3.0 apg, and 2.0 spg in the playoff 
series against the Kings.  In 15 games as a starter, Daniels averaged 
17.9 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 4.5 apg, 1.7 spg, and 0.5 bpg, with a .518 FG%.  In 
8 April games, Daniels averaged 20.0 ppg, 6.3 rpg, 5.1 apg, 2.3 spg, 
and 0.4 bpg, with a .520 FG%.  Antoine Walker who?  Daniels forced 
Walker to play center, and will likely force Walker out of town in the 
offseason.  Not bad for a kid who wasn't drafted.

for a rookie. Good thing the Nets sold him to the Sixers for cash.  
Aren't they still looking for a dependable three point shooter?  Korver 
placed third in the 3pt shootout this year, narrowly losing to the 
likes of Peja Stojakovic and Voshon Lenard.  As of 2/21/04, 51 of 
Korver's 66 FGs have been 3pters.

continue working out with Sabonis rather than ride the pine like Darko.

Despite his lack of size and athleticism, he is quite a good shot

Notes: The tallest center in this year's draft (7'5).  The only real 
center on the Knicks after Mutombo, which should get him some minutes 
if a big man goes down.  Remember, these are the same Knicks that used 
a skilless piece of crap like Felton Spencer as their starter two 
seasons ago.  Vranes is just as untalented, but he has about half a 
foot over most stiffs.  Still, you have to know a player sucks when he 
is 7'5 and gets drafted in the second round.  There's a reason why Yao 
was taken first, why Bradley was taken second, and why Vranes was taken 
39th.  Vranes was recently waived by NY, and picked up by Portland.

Notes: The all-time leader in three point percentage won 5 
championships, 3 with Jordan in Chicago, 2 with Duncan in San Antonio.  
When they had the line moved in for 3 years, he was shooting it at 
better than 50%.  That's nuts.  Kerr's a big reason they moved the line 
back to it's original location (well, not really, it was more that 
everybody thought they had Kerr's shooting ability from that range so 
everybody was jacking them up and clanking them).  He's currently doing 
an excellent job as a TNT analyst.  He already sounds like a vet out 
there.

Notes: If you don't know who Drazen Petrovic is, he's only the best 
European player to ever play in the NBA (pre-Dirk).  His career was cut 
short by a tragic auto accident after only his fourth NBA season.  In 
the 92-93 season for the Nets (who recently retired his jersey), he 
scored 22.3 ppg, had a .518 FG% (.449 3PT%) and shot 87% from the line.  
The Croatian team led by Petrovic (who averaged 25 ppg), Toni Kukoc, 
and Dino Radja placed second in the Barcelona Olympics, behind the 
famous Dream Team.  In fact, they were the only team that was able to 
get a lead against the Dream Team after 10 minutes into the game.  For 
more information (although quite a bit biased, they go as far as 
calling him better than Michael Jordan, and seemingly hold a grudge 
against Derrick Coleman and Kenny Anderson, kinda low class for a 
memorial page), visit drazenpetrovic.com.

Notes: Utah sharpshooter that was the third cog (along with Malone and 
Stockton) in Utah's two consecutive NBA Finals appearances.  His career 
FT% of .879 is ninth in NBA history.  Also made 67 straight free 
throws, sixth longest streak in NBA history.  Only the 18th player in 
NBA history to reach 14,000 points (finished career with 15,000+) and 
5,000 assists.  Something to keep in mind is the majority of those 
other players are likely PGs.
Let me do some research and see if I can find the others that reached 
that milestone before him.
Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (38k/5k) Nate Archibald (16k/6k), Larry Bird 
(21k/5k), Dave Bing (18k/5k), Bob Cousy (17k/7k), Clyde Drexler 
(22k/6k), Walt Frazier (15k/5k), John Havlicek (26k/6k), Magic Johnson 
(17k/10k), Michael Jordan (32k/5k), Oscar Robertson (26k/9k), John 
Stockton (19k/15k), Isaiah Thomas (19k/9k), Jerry West (25k/6k), Lenny 
Wilkens (17k/7k).  That's 15 players, ALL of whom are on the NBA's 
greatest 50 players list.  The other two are Derek Harper (16k/6k) and 
Reggie Theus (19k/6k).
Karl Malone (36k/5k) also achieved the milestone this year, while 
Scottie Pippen (18k/6k) got it the same year as Hornacek.  Gary Payton 
(18k/7k), Terry Porter (15k/7k), Tim Hardaway (15k/7k), Rod Strickland 
(14k/7k) have all gotten there since then. Jason Kidd (9k/6k) will 
probably make it in 3 years, while Mark Jackson (12k/10k) will probably 
fall short (he would need 3 years).
I am in absolute shock and awe at Hornacek's elite company.  I've 
certainly got a newfound respect for him now, and hopefully you do too.

Notes: One of the streakiest players of all time.  Not sure which he is 
more famous for, posterizing Horace Grant and Michael Jordan in what 
came to be known as "the dunk" (pictures at 
http://www.geocities.com/Colosseum/2717/starks.gif and 
http://www.progsoc.uts.edu.au/~wonj/basketball/dunk.html) in game 2 of 
the 92-93 conference finals, or going 2-18 (0-11 from 3pt range) in 
game 7 of the 93-94 NBA Finals.  Set an NBA record in 94-95 with 217 
three's made (although that record was broken by Dennis Scott a year 
later).  Owns the record for most three's attempted in an NBA Finals 
with 50.

Notes: A two-time all-star with the Spurs.  Won a championship ring in 
98-99, and is best remembered for hitting a three pointer while falling 
out of bounds against the Blazers to give the Spurs a victory in game 2 
of the Conference Finals.  Afterwards, it was revealed he had a kidney 
ailment, and needed a transplant.  He became the first athlete in any 
sport to ever successfully return from a kidney transplant (Greg 
Ostertag became the second).  First in Spurs franchise history in 
three's attempted, second in three's made, and fourth in scoring.

Notes: Certainly took advantage of the league's moved in three point

(breaking John Starks' year old record by 50).  Hit a three pointer in 
78 consecutive games, the third longest streak in NBA history.  His 
shooting was a valuable compliment to Shaq's post game, and Penny's 
slashing game as the Magic won 60 games and went to the NBA finals in 
94-95.

Notes: One of the 50 greatest players in NBA history, and certainly one 
of the most colorful.  Current a popular NBA analyst, and a future Hall 
of Famer.  11-time all-star, and a former MVP.  The shortest player to 
ever lead the NBA in rebounding.  Only the fourth player in history to 
ever record 20,000 points, 10,000 rebounds, and 3,500 assists (Karl 
Malone has since become the fifth).

Best Hand: Right
Notes: This CAP is based on the European player that the US never got 
to see.  Sabonis btw, is still actively playing in Europe, so 
technicaly he's not a "Former Player".  Sabonis was easily the best 
player in Europe (and debateably still is).  He was unstoppable in the 
post like Shaq, but unlike Shaq, had shooting range and could hit a FT, 
and the passing ability and awareness of Vlade Divac.  No man could 
stop Sabonis, the only thing that could ever slow him was injury.  He 
averaged 12/7/2 in only 24 mpg over the duration of his NBA career, and 
only played more than 30 mpg in one season (he averaged 16/10/3 that 
year).  One can only dream of what he'd have done earlier in his 
career, in 35 mpg.  Even at 38 years of age, he still dominated the 
Mavericks last year, and nearly took the Blazers to the Second Round.  
He scored 60 points in only 86 minutes vs Dallas.  Had they used him 
earlier than game 3, the Blazers probably would have won that series.  
He was a big reason Lithuania won a Bronze Medal in the Olympics in 92.  
We all know who the Gold Medal team was...  In 1988 however, he led the 
Soviet Union to a gold medal, in the process defeating a team that had 
David Robinson, Mitch Richmond, and Danny Manning.  Was drafted with 
the 77th pick by Atlanta in 1985, but the pick was voided when the 
league found out he was too young to enter the draft (I'm waiting for 
that to happen to some NBA high schooler).  The following year, he was 
drafted 24th by Portland.  Talk about an improvement in draft position 
(maybe some of these kids who enter the draft early should take a 
hint).  He was the runner up for the rookie of the year AND sixth man 
award back in 95-96.  Not bad for a 31 year old rookie.  Due to his 
European basketball background, there is actually a possibility that 
Sabonis could be elected to the Hall of Fame.

Notes: A first ballot hall of famer.  The greatest Knick in franchise 
history.  Probably the best mid-range shooting center in history.  
Nobody other big man could pull a fadeaway from 18 feet quite like him.  
Also a great defensive player, though never given the recognition he 
deserves because he played at the same time as Olajuwon.  Unfortunately 
never won a ring.  Had a chance in 94, but was injured when the team 
made it as an eighth seed in 99.  Would have certainly been a big help 
against Duncan and Robinson, considering Camby was lanky and not a post 
presence, and Larry Johnson was playing the series on one leg.  It's a 
shame that he had that wrist injury in 97-98.  He was never the same 
after that.  Check his FG% before that injury - it never went lower 
than .466 and he was above .500 9 times in his first 13 seasons.  After 
the injury, it never went higher than .466 in his last 4 years.  His FT 
shooting also dropped off.   He was a 75% shooter pre-injury and 
quickly dropped to 70%.  Had Ewing not had his wrist injury, there is a 
high likelyhood that he would still be in the NBA at 41 years of age 
(then again, maybe not, his knees were pretty bad too).  His number was 
retired by the Knicks last year, and he's currently an assistant coach 
for Houston under his former coach, and friend, Jeff Van Gundy.  His 
main role?  Tutor Yao so that he becomes the next Ewing... just 6 inches 
taller.

the tallest shooting guard in the world - he feels it's unfair to post 
up the guys, so he sits back and shoot three pointers.

on the set of a Billy Crystal movie in which he starred.  My Giant.  
Muresan rose to the top of the entertainment world with the best 
Snickers commercial of all-time, and just like that, it was over.  He 
never overcame that foot injury.  Before that, he owned a .580 career 
FG%, and had shot 60% from the field the previous year.  You couldn't 
stop him.  He was a beast.  The year before that he averaged 14/9 in 29 
mins with 2 blocks and his astounding FG%.  Zydrunas Ilgauskas can die 
for all I care.  At least he can still play.  But Muresan was taken 
away from us, in the prime of his career.  61 be damned, that Billy 
Crystal is a bastard.  For more information on Gheorghe Muresan, where

Notes: Yinka Dare is the most recent basketball legend to leave us.  He 
passed away at the age of 32 from a heart attack Some of you will 
remember Yinka as a project taken 14th in the 1994 NBA Draft by New 
Jersey.  Others will remember his 4 assists in 4 pro seasons and 110 
games, (which accounted to an average of less than 0.1.), as well as 
his memorable second season where he played in 58 games, started 23, 
recorded 626 minutes, and zero assists.  I choose to remember his 
greatness and accolades, which rivals that of Adonal Foyle.  If Yinka 
did not opt for retirement, he certainly would have been in an NBA 
rotation today, ready to lay the smack down on the Jason Collier's and 
Joey Pryzbilla's of the world.  Whether you loved him or hated him (and 
if you hated him, you're not a basketball enthusiast), Yinka Dare was 
an important part of New Jersey Nets history (in fact without Yinka's 
contribution, it is unlikely the Marbury/Van Horn Nets would have made 
the playoffs to nearly beat Jordan in the first round), and he will be 
missed, especially by Nicholai.  RIP Yinka, 10/10/72 - 1/9/04.

High School: Lincoln (NY)
Best Hand: Right
Notes: The cousin of Stephon Marbury, and the latest playground legend 
PG to enter the NBA.  He will be the first ever PG to enter the Draft 
out of high school.  Remember, Lebron played SG in HS, and he has the 
body of one.  Nobody Telfair's size has competed in the NBA at such a 
young age.  He is a quick distributor like Ford, but worse at 
rebounding.  Unlike Ford though, he can shoot from the outside.

Country: Russia
Best Hand: Right
Notes: Pulled out of last year's draft because he found out about a 
growth hormone problem, but it appears he'll be able to control it.  
Very large, and very raw.  Knows how to use his size, but doesn't know 
how to use post moves effectively.  Also a bit slow reacting on the 
defensive end.  In those regards, a bit similar to Gheorghe Muresan, 
and at worst will have a rookie year like the one fellow 300 pounder 
Eddy Curry had.

Sultan Kosen from Turkey).  I think Shawn Bradley is around fourth or

a European site.

Notes: Only 6 months older than Dorrell Wright.  Yep, that means he's 
raw as hell.  Has been tearing up the summer leagues thus far though, 
and I expect him to get a roster spot on the Knicks (the way DerMarr 
Johnson has been playing, Ariza will likely knick Dermarr off the 
roster).  He has good potential for the future.  Hopefully he'll force 
Tim Thomas out of town one day.

IX. Depth Charts

Here I'll list the depth charts of the NBA teams, so you have a good 
idea of where to put them in your "Team Lineups" screen.  You may not 
realize that where a player is placed on the bench affects the rating 
of the team.  Bobby Jackson in the top bench slot affects the team's 
rating more positively than he would if he were at the bottom of the 
bench, or on the IR.  Also, I am going to be placing players regardless 
of position.  Some players have incorrect positions in the game, and 
unfortunately, you can't edit position.  For instance, in the game, 
Quentin Richardson is technically a SF, and Corey Maggette is 
technically a SG, but this season Maggette will be a SG, and Richardson 
will be a SF.  I will also include players that are not in the game, to 
make it as realistic as possible.

XIII. Questions and Answers

If you have any questions, I'll post it here (if it's a good question).

-----

Question: Can you create this player for me?

Answer: It depends on who the person is.  Rashidi doesn't have all the 
time in the world, but if the player interests me enough, I'll spend 
some time on it.  Necessity takes priority.  I'm a lot more likely to 
create some scrub at the end of an NBA bench than some guy from Europe 
I've never even heard of.

-----

Question: Will you create this year's rookie draft class?

Answer: Yes.  But I won't get around to this until it gets close to 
draft time, because that's when all the scouting reports for these 
players become more accurate.  I am keeping my eye on a few of them 
though.

-----

Question: Do you have the appearances for CAPs?

Answer: Like I said, I don't make appearances.  I'm sure there are 
websites you can find via a search engine that provide appearances that 
should suit your tastes.  Check Virtuoso's website, he does the Player 
Appearance guide.

-----

Question: How do you change player positions?

Answer: You cannot change the positions of existing players in the 
game.  The only way to "change" them is to download a roster update 
from Sega, as they often change positions for players whether they 
deserve it or not.

-----

Question: Why don't you acknowledge Tom Gugliotta's greatness?

Answer: Christian Laettner > Tom Gugliotta.

-----

Question: Rashidi, do you play online?

Answer: I suck, but yes, I have played a bit.

As of 11/19/03, here are my stats.

Rank# 84 (all-star) (Highest rank: 67)
55 wins, 27 losses, 0 quits, 2 drops (both drops were server crashes)
Games Tracked: 74
Total Minutes: 1428
Avg Qtr Len: 5.0
Average Spread: 8.5
FG%: 53.0%
3pt%: 37.4%
% Points in Paint: 61.4%
% FB Points: 21.4%
Points/min: 3.8
Rebounds/min: 1.5
Assists/min: 1.2
Blocks/min: 0.5
Steals/min: 0.3
P in P/min: 2.3
FB Points/min: 0.8
Turnover +/-: -198

Teams commonly used (in order of most commonly used): 
Knicks, Rockets, Pistons, Bulls, Kings, Lakers, Mavericks, Suns

-----

Question: Rashidi, what is your favorite NBA team?

Answer: I live in the NY area, so it is easiest for me to follow the 
Knicks and Nets.  The Knicks are my favorite team, but Jason Kidd has 
been my favorite player since he entered the league.  The last two 
years year I have definitely preferred NJ, but this year I am back to 
preferring NY.

-----

Question: Rashidi, what team do you like the least?

Answer: Probably Atlanta.  They suck badly, and hardly ever employ a 
player that I like.  Dominique Wilkins, Christian Laettner, Dikembe 
Mutombo, Steve Smith, Kevin Willis, Stacey Augmon, and Mookie Blaylock 
headlined teams that were worth watching, but the cast has sucked badly 
the last couple years.  When your best player is Jason Terry (a decent 
PG that wouldn't even start for a lot of teams), I don't want to watch 
your games.

-----

Question: Rashidi, who is your favorite player?

Answer: Well, I already said Jason Kidd, but I'll list my top 5 to 
humor you.
1. Jason Kidd
2. Allan Houston
3. Dirk Nowitzki
4. Steve Nash
5. Wally Szczerbiak

XVI. Closing

Things have really gone up since last year.  It was really a great NBA 
season too, the best one in a long time I felt.  I'm looking forward to 
next year's game, to see what kind of upgrades I'll be able to continue 
upon.

Until next time,

Rashidi
