Great Moments From Awful Players: Bill Wennington

Have you ever wondered who the worse player to play with Michael Jordan when he was a member of the Chicago Bulls? Well the big Canadian Bill Wennington makes a great case. Wennington never scored more than seven points a game, four and a half rebounds a game, or more than 0.8 blocks a game. You know you're so good when you're the backup to the legendary Luc Longley. He did win three titles in his NBA career. And in this edition of Great Moments From Awful Players from Game 4 of the first round of the 1995 NBA Playoffs against the Charlotte Hornets, Beef Wennington goes up high, down hard on a pass from Toni Kukoc.

Carmelo To The Nets Is Dead. What's Next?

Remember how I said this a month ago? Well the hopes that Carmelo Anthony would be traded to the New Jersey Nets have all but died as Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has told the Nets' brass to end discussions on a deal for Anthony. Now the favorites in the clubhouse are the New York Knicks as well as the Chicago Bulls, as was previously thought in September.

Rudy Gay...Is He The Most Interesting Man In The NBA?


Pretty much every year, an NBA player that is not entirely well known around the league makes a video to try to get people to vote him into the All-Star Game. Who can forget Chris Bosh's awesome video in 2008? Now Grizzlies forward Rudy Gay has really blossomed in Memphis this season, averaging 20.7 points per game with six rebounds a pop and he is definitely in consideration to make the All-Star Game. And in an effort to make sure he will be playing for the West on February 20 at Staples Center so he released a video that makes you question whether that guy in those Dos Equis commercials really is the most interesting man in the world. Take a look.

Oakland Raiders Hire Hue Jackson

Following the curious firing of Tom Cable, Al Davis has surprised no one by promoting the highly regarded Hue Jackson, previously the team's offensive coordinator to fill Cable's spot as head coach of the Oakland Raiders. With Davis hiring Jackson before the season and giving him playcalling duties that were Cable's, it was only a matter of time before Cable was kicked out, despite a surprising 8-8 season in 2010.

Great Moments From Awful Players: Rafael Araujo

Remember Rafael Araujo? Of course you don't. The Raptors selected Aruajo with the eighth pick of the 2004 NBA Draft and during an illustrious three year career, he averaged 2.8 points per game with 2.8 rebounds per game to top it off. In short, he did nothing. But he's back in the news again while playing for his Brazilian team at the FIBA Americas League for destroying the backboard. Let's go to the videotape
