Default How can a guy like shareef abdur rahim suck all of a sudden?

After practically going 20 10 for his first 8-9 seasons, how can a guy just fall off the radar like that? Is it lack of interest? Was it that bad an injury?

That's a good question. I think it's all the added weight, along with the injuries (2 things that the lesser conditioned older players in the NBA go through).

#1 option on a bad team, to a #5 when he signed with the Kings... (behind Bibby, Artest/Peja, Kevin Martin, Miller)

Shareef definitely has a weight problem, age and the injury apparently was that bad. He looks to have half the athleticism he once had.

And he never had that much athleticism to begin with.

You are right, except his dip began when he went to the Blazers and has steadily declined since.

but from a consistent 20 10 for 9 seasons?

You'd think he'd drop to at least 16 6 or 15 5. He's not even half the player he was.

I'm sure the Nets are glad they didn't take him.

Because someone has to score on bad teams. And granted Sacramento isn't great, but they do have some legitimate scoring options: 1) Martin (now) 2) Artest 3) Bibby 4) Wells (when he played for them) 5) Miller.... then your touches get decreased dramatically... and boom you are gone.

Look at Stackhouse's numbers with Dallas compared to his Philly/Detroit days. The same thing happened to him. (Not talking about the talent dropoff just the PPG production.)

Julius Shareef was a very talented player, however he has a degenerative knee problem that has lessened his play over time. It didnt happen all of a sudden

You can't possibly think Ron Artest is a better scoring option than Mike Bibby.

Weight, Age, Inuries and probably a loss of interest.

I've also read that his knee problems are very serious. It takes everything to be in the NBA, thats why some guys fall off so fast. You lose even a little bit of athleticism, focus, motivation, physical maintenance, and problems will start.
