16.) Viacheslav “Slava” Kravtsov
- Yes, fan favorite Slava Kravtsov is the worst player on the roster. It took Kravtsov 3/4 of last year to learn how to set a proper screen. He was also famous for what I like to call the “Slava Shuffle” in the paint when he got the ball. The Pistons front office new coming into the 2012 season that Kravtsov was a project at best, but his physical stature was too good to pass up for Dumars.
In his rookie season, Kravtsov averaged 9 minutes a game, in the 25 he participated in. He posted averages of 3.1 points, 1.8 rebounds, and 0.4 assists per game. Quite the stat line for the young man from the Ukraine.
