The Bill Simmons annual trade value chart...



always a great read.
LINK

Ryno made the just missed list (didn't really write anything about him). Also has Lopez on the "honorable honorable mention" list, saying he's a "decent/cheap center."

Vasquez 50th:
quote:

50. Greivis Vasquez Whoops, too late for Vasquez and the Grizzlies! A short list of Vasquez's accomplishments in the last eight months: won the undisputed "best Venezuelan basketball player ever" title (supplanting the immortal Oscar Torres); finished second for the assists title and dished out the most assists (704); won my vote for Most Improved Player; turned "Pondexter straight up for Vasquez" into one of the sneakier one-sided NBA trades of the 21st century; served as a decoy/distraction for that ghastly Austin Rivers pick;12 and replaced Dwyane Wade as the quality NBA player with the most frequently misspelled name.


FIRE DEMPS!

Part 2 coming tomorrow. I'd imagine AD will be in the top 3.

And yet on Countdown last night he picked Vucevic as his MIP.

Will wait for morsatun to confirm this is accurate.

quote:

Brandon Jennings: Anyone thinking of overpaying Jennings this summer will ignore his crunch-time numbers (abysmal) and shot selection (dubious), and concentrate on things like "he's fun to watch" (mostly true), "he's charismatic" (definitely true) and "he's only going to keep getting better and better" (you'd think that would be true). Well …

Year 1 (age 20): 32.6 MPG, 15.5 PPG, 5.7 APG, 37-37-82%, 14.5 PER
Year 4 (age 23): 36.2 MPG, 17.5 PPG, 6.5 APG, 40-38-82%, 16.1 PER

So he's barely improved in four NBA seasons? That's weird. Wait, I'm getting flashbacks to another overrated lefty point guard who peaked in his first four years, never improved, ended up getting overpaid and started tailing off in Year 5 … uh-oh … wait a second … GOOD GOD, THAT'S DAMON STOUDAMIRE'S MUSIC!!!!!!

Really?

I'd imagine top 10 maybe 5 but 3 seems high.

Hope you're right though.
