In 1978 Doctor J finished 10th in MVP voting on a team that won 55 games. And its not like he wasnt established. He had just put up 30/7/5 in the 77 finals with 37 and 40 the last 2 games. He recieved 1 vote. Same as Marvin webster who you dont know and have no reason to know. In 79 they won 47 and he was one of 19 players tied for 11th with 1 vote. World B Free got 5 votes on the Clippers who won 43 games. But in 1980 he was second, in 81 he won, in 82 he was third. I kinda wonder what happened. Not like it wash im finally seeing success. He was in the finals in his first NBA season and then won 55 his second. Its the kinds of thing I wish I could have seen for myself. If perception of him changed or did he change something.
well I'm going to guess this happened because of the embarrassing loss in the NBA finals with a 2-0 lead and losing against a 45 win team with a team that was predicted by many to be the best NBA team ever before the season started.
I'd be pretty suprised if Lebron won MVP next year with the way he played in the playoffs, in a year when he had the team to win. That sort of thing changes perception of players the same way it did for Dirk in 07 losing in the first round.

An interesting fact about the almighty Yinka Dare. From Hoopedia:

He still holds the NBA record for most consecutive minutes played without an assist. During his four-year career, he would rack up a grand total of four assists accompanied by 96 turnovers, creating one of the worst assists-to-turnover ratios of all time. For his career, he averaged only 2.1 points, 2.6 rebounds, and less than 0.1 assists per game.

One of the biggest travesties in history, right there with MJ being snubbed for defensive second team at a minimum in 1987. All anyone has to do is watch the '91 ECF or Finals to see what a terror MJ was defensively. 1991 is, imo, one of his three peak years as a total defender along with 1990 and '92.

Michael Cooper is the only bench player in history to win DPOY.

Hakeem didn't make an All-NBA defensive team in 1989 despite becoming the first player to have over 200+ steals & 200+ blocks.

Laker players Byron Scott & Mychal Thompson once got in a playful boxing match and it quickly turned heated, Scott as a result knocked out Thompson.

Default Re: Random facts to help pass the time.

everyone knows that the 2000 NBA Draft was one of the worst NBA drafts of all time. let's start analyzing all the players who were drafted that year:

- 5 guys are currently averaging 30+ minutes per game in their career.
- 15 guys have logged 500+ games in their career including: jamaal magloire, deshawn stevenson, stormile swift, and eduardo najera
- 1 guy is averaging 20+ career ppg: michael redd

2003 Draft:
- 10 guys are currently averaging 30+ minutes per game in their career.
- 9 guys have logged 500+ games in their career, and another 6 are within 40 games of reaching 500 games.
- 4 guys are averaging 20+ career ppg

1984 Draft:
- 18 guys logged 500+ games, and 9 logged 1000+ games.
- 6 guys averaged 30+ career minutes per game.
- 3 guys averaged 20+ career ppg

some random numbers to throw out there.

in the 2000-01 season,
- michael finley led the league with most total minutes(3443)
- jerry stackhouse led the league with most total points(2380)
- jerry stackhouse led the league with most fg total attempts(1927)
- doug christie led the league with most total steals(183)
- the 1st team all rookie team consisted of: marc jackson, kenyon martin, darius miles, mike miller, morris peterson

oh how does the time pass us by. that was 9 years ago ........
