Here's the deal. I've compiled ten questions about last season's Bobcats, and I want you to read them and answer them. Don't cheat and scroll down until you've answered each. Any player who played more than 12 games is eligible as an answer. Here we go!
- Which Bobcat played the most minutes last season?
- Which Bobcat had the highest number of total rebounds, with 450?
- Who had the second highest PER on the team behind Tyrus Thomas' 18.2?
- Which player had the highest TOV%, with 29.9%?
- Which Bobcat led the team in Win Shares per 48 minutes (WS/48), with 0.161?
- Gerald Wallace led the team in Defensive Win Shares (DWS) with 2.3, but was tied with another Bobcat. Who is it?
- Which Bobcat led the team in Offensive Rating (ORtg) with 122?
- Who led the team in overall Win Shares (WS)?
- Who led the Bobcats in Field Goal Percentage?
- Eduardo Najera, Shaun Livingston, Derrick Brown, D.J. White. One of these players started one game last season. Who was it?
1) Believe it or not, Boris Diaw played the most minutes of any Bobcat last season. For all the slack he gets about his conditioning, he showed a lot of stamina and durability over the course of the season, playing 2778 minutes in all 82 games.
2) This might be one of the easier ones. Kwame Brown is the winner here. While only third in total defensive rebounds (behind Crash and Diaw), he was ways ahead of everyone with 147 offensive boards.
3) Bet you didn't see this one coming: D.J. White. Yup, you read that correctly. DJ's PER last year was 17.7, above league average.
4) Another easy one. Garrett Temple is our butterfingers here. For a player that wants to play point guard, turning the ball over 1 of every 3 possessions is not going to help you.
5) Another shocker: D.J. White another appearance on our list. Yes, DJ White may in fact be a superhero. Maybe you guys have been overlooking how talented he really is.
6) Boris Diaw is not happy with you saying that he's an average defender. Not at all.
7) Say hello to your superhero, D.J. White.
8) Did you think it was DJ White? WRONG. It's D.J. Augustin. While about average on offense and abysmal on defense, Augustin's iron man year (all 82 games played) helps him out here. Yes, DJ is responsible for 6.2 wins last season. Say thank you.
9) Was it Nazr? How about DJ White? Maybe Kwame Brown? Nope! It's Derrick Brown, thanks to his stellar start to the season. Brown clocks in at 55%.
10) Derrick Brown started one game for the Bobcats last year, replacing the injured Gerald Wallace, who was out with a sore ankle.
How many did you get right?
