    I've found another interesting Villanueva stat. He's had 20 career games in which he's looked like a future hall-of-famer. Unfortunately, this has been somewhat offset by the 410 career games in which he has either well and truly sucked or padded his stat line with meaningless points in meaningless games.

    Let's not judge the guy two harshly. On one hand, he can lose some games for you by simply disappearing, but on the other hand, he can score a good number of points in games which your team was going to win anyway. It doesn't really balance out at all, but if you can make that calculation, then at least you still possess both of your hands, which is something.

    You forgot the fact that Chucky-V is an absolute H-O-Fer in meaningless games that you actually want to lose at the end of the season to improve your draft position. If there's a way to hurt the team, Charlie will find it.

    (btw- your sig is awesome!)

    Planking and playing time. I belive there is a correlation.

    Maybe his highest and best use is actually as the Pistons' bench. Just put a couple cinder blocks down, throw CV over them and put him to work.

    We have no use for Charlie right now (or possibly ever). He and Daye play the same game regardless of position. Charlie is not much more than an outside shooter with no defence.

    If we can't trade him we should just buy him out. There is no way he opts out of that player option in 2013/14.

    This Charlie V. ankle-sleeping injury reminds me of one of my all-time favorite jokes.....

    A doctor has come to see one of his patients in a hospital. The patient has had major surgery to both of his hands.

    "Doctor," says the man excitedly and dramatically holds up his heavily bandaged hands. "Will I be able to play the piano when these bandages come off?"

    "I don't see why not," replies the doctor.

    "That's funny," says the man. "I wasn't able to play it before."
