    Also, if you squint, you can make the minus sign in front of all Lindsey's #'s look like a plus sign.

    But seriously, 3 minutes from Dupree this year? That is Chuck Nevit-like.

    As I recall his stats weren't very good then he got in a couple of games with good minutes 10+ and I believe close to 20. In those games he was as I recall on the floor a lot with the starters and we ran up the score pretty good during those games.

    Even with that he still has a negative Roland rating.

    He's definitely unproductive from a stats standpoint.

    Here is the lineup that he has logged the most minutes with:
    [SIZE=-1][SIZE=-2]Murray-Hayes-Afflalo-Johnson-Mohammed


    Murray is actually paired with him most of the time when he's on the court.


    I'm still leaning toward your conclusion that it is skewed somehow though.


    If Joe wants to point this defensive prowess out in negotiations, at least he'll have one positive thing to talk about.

    maybe it's because opposing teams can't grab offensive rebounds off an 'and 1' and his strength IS offensive rebounding.

    I'm thinking that it isn't so much that he's a great offensive rebounder, it is more that he isn't outside the 3-point line when the rebounds are available.

    I guess until he completely screws up, I'm willing to see him get some more minutes against real centers. Not expecting it to be impressive though.

    no wonder he doesn't play...he's always out of position! I'm always willing to see him on the floor, actually. If he stinks, yank him but give him a shot to check the other team's C if you are looking for an answer.

    He took $30 million of Mr. D's stash, keeps his mouth shut and goes through the motions with mediocre skills at best.

    Wouldn't you do the same thing? Imagine Pistons offering the same deal to any of the member here. Who would say - oh, I am not good enough? You take the $30 mil and just go about the business as usual.
