Trivia: Baddest of the Bad

Playing Poorly for the Long Haul

There's a big difference between a good big man and a bad one.

Last season Andrea Bargnani played terribly. It was the 10th worst performance of the turnover era (1978-present).  The 9th spot on the list also goes to Bargnani for his 2008 performance. One or two bad seasons is nothing special. What is truly difficult is to make a career of it. Let’s just take a brief glimpse at some of Bargnani’s career accomplishments.

Andrea Bargnani

  • 11095 Minutes Played -0.077 WP48 -17.8 Wins Produced
  • 15.1 Points per Game with a 0.539 TS%
  • 4.9 Rebounds per Game

It turns out Bargnani’s ability to play poorly and stay in the league is rare. That brings me to today’s trivia question.

Since 1978 only 8 players have managed to “earn” -15.0 Wins Produced or fewer and play 10,000 minutes or more. Can you name them?

As always I’ve started you off with one. Looking forward to your replies.
