    In a discussion of the Pistons loss at Chicago earlier this month, a certain poster claimed that Will Blalock had served up a linescore that was so wretched, it was unique in NBA history:

    Sadly, this feat turned out to be not so rare, as subsequent posters pointed out. Sorry, Will.

    Along these lines, I just ran across another definition of bad play: to be statistically invisible. This is from the Toronto Star:

    Here's the boxscore from that game.

    Duhon hasn't been able to throw the ball down and hit the floor lately.

    And just to continue the discussion at the end of the Bulls game thread, the guys at yahoo sports have this Eddy Curry line thing going which is pretty funny.

    Not quite as bad as the trillionaire stats but here it is anyway.

    The Eddy Curry Line was originally established to put a spotlight on how truly anemic Curry's overall fantasy line is. The standard: a player must average more turnovers than assists, steals, and blocks combined – in order to qualify, a player must have appeared in at least half of his team's games and averaged at least 25 minutes of playing time.

    Scroll right down to the bottom to see this years current 'leaders'. Notice that Chauncey is 2nd in the league conversely. But this is mostly due to his awesome ast/TO ratio, and not because he gets lots of steals and blocks. But still nice.

    This is a great thread.

    The "Eddy Curry line" is another pretty good reason to not trade for Zach Randolph.

    And the Foster game was amazingly weird. What a one dimensional player. At least he was doing something though.

    '10 Trillion' by Duhon is pretty amazing too.


    This all makes our starting 5 seem really boring with their balanced stat lines.

    In an overtime loss to the Cavs today, Big Ben did a bunch of things that show up in the stats. He played 48 minutes, grabbed 14 rebounds, had 3 assists, 2 blocks, a steal, a turnover, and two fouls. He also went 2-4 from the line. But from the field: 0-0. That's 48 minutes with no shot attempts.

    Didn't Kobe do something like this once as some kind of protest?

    unusual stats. OSU playing Florida for the championship in both major sports in the same year. Unfortunately it appears Florida is going to sweep. :yellowprison:
