Among Other Things

  • Anybody catch Rob Parker on Sports Final Edition last night?
  • In Rob’s ever hilarious substance-less Clubhouse Confidential bit, Rob said something to the tune of the Pistons selecting Brandon Jennings at #15.
  • Does Wob really have inside information (like the Stones moving up to get Jennings-because Jennings aint falling down to 15) or is this a case of Wob just being Wob?

Previous #15 selections

1995- Brent Barry- Pretty solid career, slowing down quite a bit recently

1996- Steve Nash- Guy can play a little

1997- Kevin Cato- The shot blocking beast was last seen in 07 on the Knicks

1998- Matt Harpring- Solid NBA backup still kicking

1999- Frederic Weis- never played a game in the NBA, but did get slammed on by Vince Carter in the  2000 Olympics

2000- The late Jason Collier

2001- Steven Hunter-  Often injured backup to the backup center

2002- Bostjan Nachbar- No longer in the NBA but was a decent backup wing player for the Nets for a few years

2003- Reece Gaines- No longer in the league

2004- Al Jefferson- Averaged 23.1 ppg last season

2005- Antoine Wright- Made a nice career for himself so far

2006- Cedric Simmons- Still in the league but probably not for long (just 75 career games played)

2007- Rodney Stuckey-  Future All-Star?

2008- Robin Lopez- Will not be as good as Brook but not a bad investment

Group as a whole is very mixed, but there is a lot to like.  I doubt there is a Nash or a Jefferson in this season’s teens, but a Harpring, Barry, or Wright wouldn’t be bad.
