Daily Link: Worst Nets Ever

I thought this was a fun Saturday morning read. ESPN (Insiders only) has listed the five worst players in the history of each NBA franchise who have played at least 10 minutes a game over the course of 100 games. The players were ranked according to their PER (Player Efficiency Rating) and the worst Net was Trenton Hassell:

It’s fitting that last season’s 12-win Nets team started Trenton Hassell 31 games and paid him $4.4 million to be their 12th leading scorer.

I’ll be honest, as bad as Hassell was for the Nets, I’m a bit surprised that he ranked as the worst in the history of one of the league’s most sorry franchises. And of course, PER doesn’t really account for defense, which explains why Jason Collins is also number three on that list.
