Al Jefferson -- #52 Best NBA Player? Don't Your Teams have to Win Occasionally?
#NBARank has Al ranked #52. Ok, he has some talent, but here are some scary stats:
1) NBA teams with Al on them: 202 wins &372 losses (.352 winning percentage)
2) NBA Teams w/Al playing > 20mpg? 124 and 286 (.302).
The Celtics won the NBA title after trading Al. The Wolves actually improved by two games after trading Al. And when Al went to Utah it led to a losing record for a Jazz franchise that rarely has posted a losing mark. Plus the Jazz lost Jerry Sloan AND Deron Williams in the same year.
Al -- great low post scorer, above average rebounder. That, sadly, is about it. Name any other phase of the game and Al is below average....just like his teams.
