Andrew "The X" Watson is a model player. Though never an all-star, Watson had an excellent rookie season, and was a key piece to a title contender Nuggets team. Furthermore, I'm sure The X approves of how his career has gone.

Martti "Martti." Must became a star. His and Ty's careers have been among the interesting sidelines to this story and he has enjoyed the most success.

Liam "L-Train" "Peja 2.0" "Lamrock" "Three's Company" "Seattle's Best" Washburn for obvious reasons.

What does Ty's contract look like? Is it possible that he can ride out the end of the year with the Nets then hop ship to the Knicks?

Still waiting on those B.Roy numbers. :P

Best of the draftees:
2009: M.Must - He gets the most minutes than A.Watson who has a higher scoring average, but Must is averaging 11 rebounds per game and has higher stats in every other category, I would rather have him on my team.

2010: M.Nissley - Doing more with the ball with less minutes, that may be because of a bigger role on the team but the numbers don't lie. That free throw percentage is a killer though.

2012: J.Kalnis - Scores less points, but 3 blocks a game is a valuable stat (lets say those 3 blocks lead to a 6 point swing, add those onto Kalnis' ppg and now he has a higher scoring average than L.Washburn).

2013: J.Martin - Nobody else is doing anything yet. :P

2009: Must: Listen, this kid has been through tears, teammates hating, and people calling him a bust. But currently, he is averaging a double-double, proving to the league that he wasn't a bust.

2010: Niessly: Even though I dislike him, he still does more compared to Hova. It's sort of unfair to have the two compared, with Manfred being one of the good players of his team, and Hova stuck between Bosh and Clark. Nevertheless, Hov can do beter in 30 minutes.

2012: Washburn: He has the biggest role by far on the Bucks, and has learned to play well with Jay Gray. Compare him with Albano, and he does better in the same amount of minutes.

2013: Martin: Honestly, being picked number 4, he is the one who has gotten playing time. The rest of the league's NLSC'ers are essentially
A. D-League
B. 5 minutes per game or
C. IR

2009| Andrew Watson - Even though Martti Must have better numbers I think Watson is the best on this class. Why? Because he is a winner, he plays for a contender Nuggets and now trying to make the Mavericks a champion.

2010| Nissley - Well did not really know what this guys brings but he got better numbers than Hova, plus I think he is the leader of the Wolves.

2012| Washburn - One of the factor for the Bucks deep playoff run last year. Also he got robbed as the ROY last year.

2013| Martin - I'm the only one out there really, plus I did help my team get the 5 straight wins. Hoping that this will be the year the Bobcats make the playoffs.

I think I'm going for Iverson's record, we all know the Bobcats sucks at offense so I need to throw more shots. more attempts = more chance the ball will go in = scores.

Martti Must and Andrew Watson are the only ones that can be considered 'good' NLSCers.
Choosing amongst the rest is basically picking the least of the worst.

Class of 2009
Martti Must - MVP candidate, averaging a double-double, but most improtant - leader of his team, which is a winning team, while Watson and Moore are second options behind Nowitzki and Chris Paul.

Class of 2010
Manfred Nissley - Chris Hova has more assists, but he has been ineficient scoring wise, averaging only 9 ppg, which is too low for the most talented guard in the team. Nissley in the meantime puts a nice 17 and 5, while playing alongside all-star Kevin Martin in the backcourt.

Class of 2012
Janis Kalnins - looses to Washburn only in points per game, while in other categories he is ahead. Not to mention, that he won Rookie of the Year award last year, despite the fact, that Al Jefferson was eating up most of his minutes at the center till February.

Class of 2013
I'll go with Dee Gilmore here, 5 points in 5 minutes is a good scoring spark from the bench, which would be useful for every team.

Karl: Stay Focused

Image

DECEMBER 9, SEATTLE – Seattle Stealth Head Coach George Karl called a team meeting to get his young players to settle down amidst all of the criticism from media and fans as well as the circus surrounding Reshawn Tyson trade rumors. Karl told reporters that he addressed the issues with his team because it was ‘time to get back down to Earth and focus on delivering results.’

“I told my guys that we need to stick together and be committed to the franchise,” Karl said, “We’ve got a lot of work to do if we are to be competitive.” When questioned about Tyson and a deal that could see him end up with the Knicks or Nets, Karl replied, “Losing Reshawn would be tough but we could handle it. Right now, he’s just got to stay focused and play team basketball.”

Karl was also asked about Kevin Durant’s season so far. Karl stated that Durant wasn’t playing particularly well but he was not to be blamed for it, “We’ve got a few guys who are playing for themselves and not the team. Kevin isn’t getting the same looks as he used to because of his teammates as well as other team’s defending him like they do.”

“In due course, Kevin should be back to normal,” Karl added.

Stealth Win Streak Up To Five

Image Image

DECEMBER 12, CHICAGO – The Seattle Stealth earned their fifth win in a row with a 99-86 win against the Bulls in Chicago. Stephen Jackson scored 22 points and Derrick Rose added 21 points, 10 assists, 6 rebounds but also had 5 turnovers.

Reshawn Tyson led Seattle with 25 points while Kevin Durant struggled again but still reached 19. Allen Iverson continued his strong play of late with 18 from off the bench. Head Coach George Karl happened to be pleased with his team’s recent hot streak, “At the end of November, the team was not going to well and I sat my players down to have a chat. They agreed to give it their all and block out all the distractions. I’m pleased that I went to that length to get them to talk it over and now we are playing great basketball.”

After this fifth straight win in Chicago, the Stealth lie at 14-9 and are 1.5 games behind 16-8 Portland for the lead in the Northwest Division.

Stealth’s Iverson Back In Stride

Image

DECEMBER 13, SEATTLE – NBA veteran Allen Iverson has been playing well since Coach George Karl agreed to give him more minutes. In his past three games, he has scored 21, 23 and 18 points whilst playing 33, 34, 30 minutes in each respective match.

All three games have been wins and Iverson has been shot at least .500 in each. Subsequently, his scoring average has risen to 11 points; a welcome sight for Coach Karl after Iverson was averaging around 7 points a game just three weeks ago. “Allen has definitely shaken off the rust and recovered from injury,” Karl said, “I’ve coached him for so long that we have a good understanding of each other and I can tell you now that he still has a lot of basketball left in him.”

I must have missed the part where it said he was signed for a max contract, thanks for clearing it up though. :)

Class of 2009 - Martti Must. All-Star, All-NBA, All-Defense, leading the league in PER.

Class of 2010 - Manfred Nissley - A very efficient scorer it seems.

Class of 2011 - Janis Kalnins - ROY, great shot blocker and rebounder.

Class of 2012 - Julian Martin - Despite the inefficiency, does actually score on a night-to-night basis.

Read the new updates, Karl saying that Iverson "still has a lot of basketball left inside of him", damn. The Seattle Stealth trainers must hold the secret to Steve Nash's conditioning.

Congratulations on the win streak, hope you can keep it going. (Y)

Ok, with the question here is what I would have accepted.

2009 - Martti Must because he is a legit MVP candidate. He is single handily keeping the Suns above .500. Andrew was also acceptable as he is a efficient scorer however, Must has to be regarded as the number 1 choice as he does everything. Not to mention, he is one of the top rebounders and the league leading shot blocker.

2010 - Manfred - he is starting at PG for the Wolves and putting up some pretty good stats. From last checking, Wolves have a pretty good SF-SG-PG tandem. Deng is averaging close to 20 ppg, Martin is averaging about 21 ppg I think and Manfred is averaging about 17 ppg. I was expecting a breakout season from Hova but he is doing terribly...

2011 - Kalnins or Washburn. Washburn is the better player and on a winning team. Kalnins is also solid averaging a double double. Too close to call.

2012 - Dee Gilmore - This is the tiebreaker as most of you picked the guys above. Dee is on a winning team and surprisingly playing a part in it with his outstanding accuracy from the field and behind the arc. Julian has been a blackhole, not seen since Lamrock graced the floor in his rookie season. 1 assist per 1.9 turnovers is woeful.

And NewC is the winner of 25 points. :)

I chose the volume scorer instead of someone who actually plays an efficient role, can't believe I left my post unedited when I noticed that.

Postby The X on Mon Jan 17, 2011 9:31 pm

To break it down:

2009

This isn't even a question. Martti Must is the best NLSC-er, no doubt about it. If it was who has had the best career or who is more likeable then you may get different answers, but let me just say, the package of skills that Must brings to the court at his height are once in a generation. The same can't be said for Watson or Moore. He may not have had the sort of team success and has had his fair share of emotional outburst, but the kid is young, maturing and still improving. I foresee him settling his beef with his Suns' teammates and starting to return to his best in the second half of this season and going from strength to strength. Must has Hall of Fame potential, he just has to keep his head in the game.

If the question was best player first two seasons, then yeah, I'd say Watson. Best player first three seasons and it's pretty neck and neck between Must & Watson, but I'd give nod to Watson marginally. But picking Watson as best player of class is a clearly sentimental pick, much like one would be picking Grant Hill to an All-Star for Suns in a comeback year.

It's a shame Mark Moore doesn't get his due credit. Kid can ball. He is the second best NLSC talent but for some reason he has fallen into Charlotte's web (Bobcats-Hornets) of bad luck. Why the heck are Hornets only playing him 26 minutes per game? Play him an extra 10 minutes per game and he's an All-Star.

Final word on Must, he beat the great Jay Gray for All-NBA 1st team honours. Enough said.

X's 2009 Rankings: 1. M.Must, 2. M.Moore, 3. A.Watson


2010

Sorry Manfred, you're playing on a shitty T-wolves team, so your stats are already padded. Furthermore you are shooting free throws worse than Andrew Bogut (is that possible?). That alone means I can't rate you best in class. I probably won't put you in top 3 either since your first few years were shite :P

Top PG has to be Clippers' starting PG Ray Lliach. He's probably not noticed much anymore because a promising Clippers went south fast. Shame he can't get to a better team (N)

Dela Cruz is in second, a do-everything player that made the All-Star team.

As for the third and final pick, Chris Hova gets edged out by former number 1 pick (ahead of Jay Gray :cool: ) Jeremy Mason. I don't really know what Mason is doing in New Jersey stats wise, but I'm sure his first few years have been better than Hova's.

X's 2010 Rankings: 1. R.Lliach, 2. K.Dela Cruz, 3. J.Mason


2012

The voters for rookie of the year made a mistake. Nothing against Kalnins, but Washburn was the best rookie in the league last season. He even improved on his play in the playoffs and helped the Bucks advance. That can not be understated. He's a well-rounded forward, but I'm not so sure of his upside and am thinking, what you see now is what you are going to get, give or take a few points per game.

Janis Kalnins is a very close second and will probably surpass Washburn as best rookie in class in a year or two. Kalnins has even made the game a lot easier for Nissley as he had defended the rim well and let Manfred gamble on defense on the perimeter.

There's a bit of a drop-off to third, which I'd give to Albano Spagnoletti. He's got some raw talent, but his shot selection has something to be desired. Am interested to see if he is a career Larry Hughes or whether his shooting numbers will increase with time.

Sorry Leo, you are just too far down the pecking order and haven't yet had a chance to shine. Your time will come (Y)

X's 2012 Rankings: 1. L.Washburn, 2. J.Kalnins, 3. A.Spagnoletti


2013

I will withhold my votes since it's too early to tell. Ask again next season.

X's 2013 Rankings: Votes withheld

I didn't know you would write a response. :lol:

But don't be too disappointed. I am awarding you 25 points as well because that is the most thorough analysis in a while from any participant. (Y)

Some Notes In Response To The X

- Mark Moore's main backup is Martel Webster who is a favorite for sixth man of the year. Moore is averaging 16 ppg, Webster is averaging 15 ppg... Moore is capable of averaging more than 20 a game but I guess he is too much of a team-first guy and doesn't complain of his role
- Jeremy Mason averages double digits over his career
- Lliach is hurt so hasn't done too much this season but he was the man carrying the Clippers since his rookie year

I don't want the points. Since NewC is the winner, if you feel you have to give token points for participation then just give the points to Manfred. God knows his player needs it (I'm just playing puttin, your guy is solid, you were just the fall guy :P ).

I just wanted to do a proper summary since people were spouting out Nissley when he is maybe the 4th best NLSC player in his class at the moment. How quickly they forget he was a bench player for first couple of seasons only averaging a couple of points per game. I didn't know you had posted your winners until I tried to post mine. Ahh well, such is life.

If you want to talk about the best NLSCer in that draft class whether they have been featured or not - then Kenneth Dela Cruz might be your man. The Mavs small forward does everything - sorta like Andrei Kirilenko - and is an All-Defensive player in the NBA. Always appears in the defensive player of the year awards race. :)

If you say so. :lol:

His draft class (ranking NLSCers only): 1. Lliach/Dela Cruz... 3. Mason... 4. Manfred... 5. Hova

But since only Hova and Puttin are following now, I guess that's why everyone else has been forgotten since I'm not going to post the stats of the others. You sorta get sick of posting stats of 20 different players. Takes way too long to update. :)

EDIT: Also X, any comment on the Mavs trade? Not sure if you are a fan of Hedo. haha

For some reason I thought Louise Nixon was a NLSC-er :lol: Anyways, swapped him out & put in the forgotten Dela Cruz. Didn't realise he was an All-Star :o

Your question was asking for the best NLSC-er in each draft class. I didn't realise you were only wanting discussion on the best active NLSC-ers, as I could've saved some research time & not bothered putting together a proper analysis together. I'll fall into line with others next time and try to keep it more concise :P


EDIT: Anyways, I'd like to put the 25 points to good use. No son of God should not be hardy. All available points should increase Manfred's Hardiness rating. He shall remain injury free, and so shall it be done.

“The league takes drug violations very seriously,” Stern stated the obvious, “Criminal behaviour also warrants expulsion from this league. Will, I am sure that you would understand all of this.”
Sit nodded.
Stern looked at Vince, “Agent Thompson, I believe that the player involved deserves to be treated fairly so I will launch an internal investigation into the matter.”
Vince nodded.
Stern continued, “However, please let your superiors know that the NBA is happy to pay a bond to keep him out of prison. We do not want any unwanted media attention in the interim.”
Vince argued, “That’s not our jurisdiction.”
Stern laughed, “I know. I will contact the appropriate people accordingly. Once I have a review into this matter completed, I will deal with it in due course.”
Stern switched his focus to Sit, “I know that you, for one, will appreciate procedural fairness.”
Sit remained silent.
“Once this gets out, the league is going to suffer a lot of backlash. I think it would be best that we make sure all the facts are right and corroborated,” Stern explained, “For the time being, I trust that the feds will not leak any facts to the media.”
Vince asked him, “Is this some sort of cover up or something? I’m sure the public would want to know who this player is!”
“For that confidential information to be released, it not only damages my league’s reputation as well as this player’s welfare and chances of a fair trial,” Stern answered, “Thank you gentlemen for this meeting. I am sure we will be seeing each other again soon.”
Sit and Thompson left Stern’s office in a hurry. The Commissioner was, understandably, not in the best of moods. Stern watched the pair leave and then called an old friend of his from Law School. As he waited for him to pick up, Stern thought to himself I’m too goddamn old for this shit.
“Hey,” Stern said to his friend, “I need you to get onto someone in Seattle so that we can get one of my players out of trouble.”

Sit was enjoying his beer when Nets General Manager Billy King arrived.
“Will Sit?”
Sit got up and shook King’s hand, “Billy. How are you doing?”
They sat down and King ordered a drink.
“It’s nice to meet you in person,” Sit stated.
“You too,” King replied, “What brings you into New York?”
“Business as usual,” Sit was vague.
“Ok then,” King said, “Let’s get down to business. Have you thought about my offer?”
Sit pulled out the printed email, “Yi, Mason and Simmons? That’s not a bad offer but I’m sure you’d part with more.”
King laughed, “You’re getting three for one. These guys would keep you as contenders. Kevin Durant will have two great shooters to spread the floor for him.”
“But Yi doesn’t play defence,” Sit laughed, “And he doesn’t box out.”
“What if I threw in Rudy?”
“Fernandez?”
This piqued Sit’s interest.
King nodded, “You are a fan aren’t you?”
“Are you telling me you are offering me Yi, Mason, Simmons and Rudy as well?”
King nodded again, “As long as you throw in someone to match salaries. We want Tyson a lot. We’re willing to go ahead with this.”
This was by far the most generous offer Sit had heard in all the negotiations he had been through. Sit finished his beer and out the empty glass back on the table. He wiped his top lip with the back of his palm.
“Wow,” Sit was a little flabbergasted, “That’s quite an offer.”
King looked at his watch, “Sleep on it Sit. I need to go now but you know that we are keen.”

George Karl had the team together in the Stealth’s meeting room at the training facility. He looked up and down the table at his players’ faces. The inconsistency during the season was not acceptable for him and he knew that everyone was waiting for him to tell them. However, he wasn’t going to tell them what they were doing wrong or that they were not playing well enough.
“You all know that you aren’t playing any good,” he said, “I’m going to be frank. You’re all playing like crap.”
No one said anything. No one said a word. Karl looked around and couldn’t see where Adam Morrison was.
“Where’s Adam?” he asked.
Everyone looked to their left and right.
“I guess he’s not here,” Kidd spoke up.
Karl pushed on, “I know that there are a lot of things going on right now but we just need to stick together and stay committed to this franchise. We have a special team here. It’s about time we play like one. That’s all I’m going to say today so let’s go out there and practice like a team that actually gives a damn about winning.”
The players got up and, one by one, shuffled out of the room.
Karl called out, “Kevin, I need to have a word with you.”
Durant stopped at the door and turned around.
“Yes Coach?”
Karl pat him on the shoulder, “You ok son? You haven’t been yourself lately?”
Durant complained, “Haven’t you felt that Tyson is playing selfishly? He ain’t passing me the rock coach. This isn’t right.”
Karl said to him, “I will have a word with him.”
Durant smiled, “Good.”

Sit had a few hours before the flight out of New York. He had just finished another beer and quickly glanced at his phone for the time. Isaiah Thomas was late but what else could Sit expect. His secretary had foolishly scheduled this meeting for him when he had no interest whatsoever in talking to the Knicks. Thomas bounced through the restaurant door and spotted Sit. He was panting as he took his seat.
“Will,” Thomas sounded like he was about to pass out, “Thanks for waiting.”
Sit raised wasn’t too impressed, “I’ve got to get to the airport and you’ve made me wait for nearly half an hour.”
Thomas grinned, “Trust me, it will be worth the wait. I’ve got a third team ready to help us out.”
“A third team?” Sit quizzed him.
“Yes,” Thomas replied, “A third team. A Tyson trade should be a lot more enticing.”
“Hit me,” Sit stated.
“How does Lamar Odom, Ron Artest and Zach Randolph sound?”
“We’re doing a deal with the Nuggets?”
“Yes!”
“How are we going to match the salaries?” Sit was baffled.
Thomas was equally confused, “I never thought about that.”

* * *

After a win against the Bulls, Ty was pulled aside by Coach Karl.
“Reshawn,” Karl said to him, “You’ve got to share the basketball.”
Ty couldn’t believe his ears, “What?”
“Kevin is the leader of this team,” Karl reasoned with him, “I know that you might not agree with him all the time but that should not translate onto the court. To be a great player you have to share.”
Ty frowned and protested, “Hold up Coach! I think you got something wrong here.”
Karl exclaimed, “Sorry son but sometimes this is how things go. We need Kevin involved to win games. He commands the defensive attention and we need to allow him to have the ball in his hands. This is how we stay dangerous.”
Ty threw his arms in the air, “Unbelievable!”
Karl pleaded with his young player, “I believe that you will do the right thing for us.”
Ty withheld the anger within, “I can’t wait to get off this team. This is unfair!”
Karl wanted to give him time to chill, “Don’t take it personally. You might not even be here tomorrow so it’s only fair to your teammates and Kevin that you do the right thing.”
Karl left Ty wondering what was happening. Ty was thinking to himself, We just won our fifth game in a row! And it was because of me! Why the hell am I supposed to defer to a wanker like Durant?! Karl entered into one of the rooms further down the corridor where he would be interviewed by a few beat writers. Suddenly, his phone rang. Karl looked at the caller ID and looked around to make sure no one was listening in on him. It was Sit.
“George.”
Karl was trying to keep his voice down, “Yes?”
“A heads up,” Sit replied, “I’ve had someone tell me that the Nets are ready to make a big deal. I think it’s just about done.”
Karl knew that something might have been coming up, “That’s great news.”
“Yes!” Sit was excited, “I’m just waiting for King to call me. I will keep you updated.”

I do appreciate the time you put into your analysis. That's why I was willing to award you points, whether you wanted them or not.

As for the time issues, I am trying to get this story going faster and that is why sometimes I only put in an 8-10 hour turnaround. I know that it is unfair to those who aren't going to see the competitions. Obviously, what happened to you was not a good scenario. I apologize for that.

What's wrong with Rudy? He was a near-championship winner with the Cavs last season! :)

You do realize you got to battle AI for the starting spot? While in New York... there's really no one there. Well - there is Nick Young.

It's passed and a moot point now. newc was the winner so he gets the spoils for the win. I missed the boat on the competition as I was too late so it's fair that I miss out. I am sure there are others who missed out because they read your post too late. Good to know about your normal time limit for future reference.

Wow, things are shaping up. I hope that you can turn things around with a deal, because there is no room for regression in Seattle. sad to see Ty going and not KD, but that's how it is ..

So, if Ty goes to New Jersey, you're staying with the Stealth? I'd love a Nets spinoff with Ty there. :cheeky:

And for one, you'd get acceptable jerseys

Stealth, Nets, close to deal; Knicks not out of it
Image

According to many sources, the Seattle Stealth and the New Jersey Nets are nearing a deal that would send Reshawn Tyson to the Nets.

This deal has been expected, as Tyson was expected to be traded after he signed a max deal with the Stealth. The situation got worse, as Tyson was confronted by coach George Karl to stop playing selfish. That was the last straw for Tyson, as he was seen yelling some profanities at Karl.

Tyson and star Kevin Durant have never really played well together. Many altercations were reported between the two, and only one could stay.

The possible Big 3 of Tyson, Carmelo Anthony, and Barney Steele seems real now. People in New Jersey already bought some customized Tyson jerseys from NBA.com. However, their celebration seems premature, as a three way deal between the Stealth, New York, and Denver is still not out of the picture.

The Knicks and Nuggets are offering Lamar Odom, Ron Artest, and Zach Randolph. They need to find a way to match salaries though.

"If they can match the salaries, Seattle will have two offers to look at," said a source close to the situation. "The offers are almost identical talent wise."

According to ESPN's Woody Hannes, the Nets are offering Rudy Fernandez, Yi Jianlian, Bobby Simmons, and Jeremy Mason. The Stealth would need to match salaries, but would accept.

Tyson's first choice would be New York, but would be open to join a better situation in New Jersey, according to his agent.

"Reshawn wants to win. He would join any team, to win."

When asked about the trades, Anthony smiled and said, "If Reshawn comes here, expect championships for a while."

Twitter from @Russell Westbrook
I have been hearing rumors of a major trade taking place. The rumor states that Reshawn Tyson is going to be traded. Did they forget their mistake in trading me? Kings v Nets for Championship next 5+ years. Rivalry baby!


Twitter from @Jonas Kingly ESPN insider
Stealth will rue the day of TY trade. Especially considering the news that was leaked to me by certain supposed FBI guys.
