Upside and Motor is a damn fine NBA blog that, unlike us, puts effort into original ideas. To be fair, though, they probably haven’t sniffed NEARLY as much glue.
So they came up with this thing today that is absolutely fascinating. They broke down classifications of every kind of player… and arranged it in a hierarchy:
Then they went a step further and put together yearbook style pages to describe each of these classifications. KG is a “refined big man” and Paul Pierce is a renaissance man. They describe that as:
Renaissance man – Dabbles, and succeeds, in doing practically everything. They can handle the rock, set up their teammates, rebound well for their position, and score at will.
Just go read their post. It’s ridiculously thought out and great fodder for debate.
FYI… Chuck and I had planned on doing something like this… but then we saw pictures of boobs. I mean… what would you do in that situation?
