Who's your favorite scrub?
 
We all have a guy that we like even those he's a third string kind of guy.

For me its Michael Doleac. Can't do anything beside hit that jumper on a pick and pop but its money.

So, who's your favorite scrub?

geeWiz15 08-02-2006 03:05 PM

Michael Ruffin!!!

In the backcourt, Laron Profit... as long as he counts as a scrub.

Younggrease 08-02-2006 03:08 PM

Sasha Vujacic, although he's about to blow up next year

hateraid 08-02-2006 03:08 PM

Is Reggie Evans scrubby enough? I'll pick him

boshraptor4life 08-02-2006 03:09 PM

Matt Bonner, the red rocket.

SCY 08-02-2006 03:11 PM

It was Moochie Norris, whose existence amuses me. Although I guess I have to say John Lucas III now, my favorite player period besides Yao.

Young HkM 08-02-2006 03:18 PM

Robert Swift. The future on NBA scrubs.

The Italian 08-02-2006 04:09 PM

Pape Sow. I love his heart and how he just leaves it all on the floor.

Brian Cardinal, the definition of scrub

DreamRuled 08-02-2006 04:37 PM

Ryan Bowen...can't doubt his effort

AKADS 08-02-2006 04:43 PM

Pat Burke - Cause he is a fellow Bald White Guy.

saKf 08-02-2006 04:46 PM

What's the cap on minutes per game to define "scrub?"

I say fewer than 12 minutes per game.

If your guy gets less than a quarter of playing time a game, then he qualifies as a scrub.

Definition of overpaid.

When he was with the Mavericks I loved Eddie Najera. (Of course our commentator would literally jizz himself everytime Najera did something so that got pretty annoying.) But I remember when Najera was playing in the Sacramento series with a broken hand and would frustrate the hell out of Webber.

Now that he's gone my favorite scrub from the Mavericks was Darrell Armstrong. When he swatted Mike James's "sh&t" into the second row in Game 7 against the Rockets... I almost cried. And I loved his ability to draw charges.

And for this upcoming season I haven't decided yet because I haven't seen the scrubs yet of the Mavs play. But I imagine Pops will be new favorite.

Brian "Michael Rappaport" Scrubaline.

Pape Sow, I guess. We don't really have any lovable scrubs on our team, maybe Bonner but he's gone.

saKf 08-02-2006 04:55 PM

Under the "12 minutes or fewer" rule, my favorite scrubs are Mike Wilks, Stacey Augmon, Ronald Dupree, Othella Harrington and James Thomas.

saKf 08-02-2006 04:56 PM

I guess it should be 15 minutes or fewer. Surprisingly few players average fewer than 12 minutes. If the definition is stretched to 15 minutes or fewer, then Maurice Evans is my favorite.

Bulls_Fan20 08-02-2006 05:43 PM

It's gotta be Travis Diener. He was my favorite at Marquette even when Wade was still there.

NBAfan32 08-02-2006 08:28 PM

Ryan Bowen, Scott Padgett and Brian Cardinal.

Wadeisabeast 08-02-2006 08:57 PM

My favorite "scrub" is Udonis Haslem. If he was on just about any other team he wouldn't start, but fits his role in Miami very well. He's not very athletic, but he works very hard for boards, and can hit the open 15 footer.

geeWiz15 08-02-2006 09:00 PM

Udonis Haslem is not a scrub in any way shape or form. Name me a team in this league that couldn't find room for him in the top 8 of their rotation and then let's talk.

I like Brian Cardinal also. If I could have Cards, Ruff, and Profit as the 9-12 of my team I'd be a pretty happy man.

You think he's gonna slide up to 4th guard in the rotation over in Magicland now? Or will he still be the fifth guard with the Magic still delusional that someday Dooling will turn into something? Diener is pretty much the perfect 5th guard. I agree I like him alot. Automatic from 3.

Drck33 08-02-2006 09:10 PM

My favorite 5 are: Antonio Burks, Eddie Badsen, Jermaine Jackson(combo guards, *sigh*), D.J. Mbenga, and my favorite..Ronny Turiaf. Out of these 5, i think DJ sadly is the best.

I'm not sayin he's a bad player, but I seriously don't think he would fit well with other teams and get the starting job. There are many more talented PF's in the game, with better jumpers, and more size. Haslem just does the dirty work Miami needs him to do, besides his toughness he is nothing special. He is undersized, not as athletic, and isn't very flashy. Some might not agree, but this is just my opinion.

Ofcourse there are...

However Udonis Haslem doesn't fit under the "scrub" label in no shape of form.

There is a diffrence between a role player (which is what Udonis is) and a "scrub".

A "scrub" is an 11/12 man, not much skill, and only sees time when mulitple injuries surface (see Micheal Doleac).

As GeeWiz eluded too, Udonis would be a top 7-8 rotational player on pretty much every team in this league.

WADE MONEY 08-02-2006 09:27 PM

darko, by a mile

dude is in top 99% at predraft camp in lateral quickness
height, skills, size
just not an ounce of confidence
if he gets traded to the suns, he will seriously BLOW UP
25/10/5/4 blocks on 55% shooting and 35% threes and 75% ft

BankShot 08-02-2006 09:31 PM

Fred Hoiberg, once/if he returns from heart surgery

also Luke Jackson once his back heals

all the Darko fans here think he's gonna block 3 or 4 shots a game when only two players (Camby and Kirilenko) blocked more than 3 (but less than 4) per game last season.

pretty comical

DeuceWallaces 08-02-2006 09:35 PM

All the Darko fans are bandwagoners here.

Ronald Dupree is my scrub.

joe lucky 08-02-2006 09:36 PM

Right now its got to be Ronny Turiaf guy has an inspirational story and is the energy guy off the bench (even dancing on occassion). Fills that Mark Madsen role to a T but he actually can play.
Next would probably be Vin Baker, despite his problems he seems to wind up somewhere and get a few minutes.

Bourne 08-02-2006 09:51 PM

The correct answer for everyone is Milt Palacio. Any other answer is ignorant. That's ignorant!

I agree, Turiaf is a perfect combination to be a fan favorite. He's energetic and plays hard off the bench, and almost had his professional basketball career taken away from him.

Go Ronnie.

Silent Mav 08-02-2006 09:54 PM

I gotta go with Benga. He tries to block every shot the whole time he is on the floor. It's just fun to watch.

He got over 2 blocks per game in 21mpg in essentially the first two months of his career. 3 bpg is not completely unreasonable. His timing and size are out of this world. However I think as he matures and learns defense a little better he will stop going for the block every time (help keep him out of foul trouble) and that'll balance it out a little.

lalalisa924 08-02-2006 10:36 PM

Dorell Wright.

It's funny that he has barely played in two games in his NBA season, but he's one of the top two reasons I watch Heat games, just to see him on the bench.

If you want to know why, just google his picture.

Kobe24 08-02-2006 10:37 PM

Profit

Twiens 08-02-2006 10:46 PM

Ronny Turiaf and Mark Madsen.

The Mamba 08-03-2006 12:49 AM

Ronny Turiaf. Andres Nocioni. Andres is good, but he definetely plays like a scrub. Ben Wallace as well.
