8. Brandan Wright, Dallas Mavericks

Brandan Wright probably isn’t a name that popped into your mind when you read the title of this article.  His name didn’t pop into mine, either.

It’s hard to argue with the statistics, though.  In the 2012-13 season, 69.1 percent of Wright’s field goal attempts from inside five feet found the bottom of the net.  That’s a very high percentage and it deserves to be recognized.

It doesn’t matter how it’s done as long as it gets done.  Wright doesn’t wow fans with his footwork or mechanics, but he finds a way to finish at the rim.

    Hey retard, Iguodala isn’t on the Nuggets anymore

    • Mike Dill

      Where did I insinuate that he is still on the Nuggets? I opened his slide with “Warriors fans will be happy” because he is a Warrior now.

      • ScHoolboy Drew

        The title of the slide was originally “Andre Iguodala, Denver Nuggets” you just put off replying to me until you fixed it.

        • Mike Dill

          I did no such thing. I didn’t even put the team names in the slide titles. Our editor must have added them just in case readers were unfamiliar with any of the players.

          Either way, please refrain from name calling. There’s no need for that.
