Every time I've done one of these "record of futility" searches, I've always been impressed with how many Wizards/Bullets players show up.

Digging deeper into the numbers, I see that Vesely isn't quite as epically sucky as I had thought. His incredible feat of accumulating more fouls than points, rebounds and assists has been duplicated 20 times. Here is a list of the 20 players who have totaled more fouls than points, rebounds or assists, while playing at least 200 minutes:

Code: Select all
Player         Season  MP   PF  PTS TRB AST
Jason Collins  2007-08 1172 194 140 178 25 
Duane Causwell 1996-97 581  131 118 127 20 
Greg Dreiling  1991-92 509  123 117 96  25 
Fabricio Obert 2009-10 650  121 83  105 51 
Mark Madsen    2006-07 473  100 61  87  10 
Martin Nessley 1987-88 336  89  48  82  16 
Johnny High    1983-84 512  84  46  66  51 
Bill Curley    1998-99 372  83  78  51  14 
Eric Montross  1999-00 332  81  40  72  7   
John Edwards   2005-06 296  76  70  48  5   
Hasheem Thabe  2010-11 373  76  53  75  4   
Felton Spencer 2001-02 248  73  29  50  3   
Jason Collins  2008-09 422  73  57  70  11 
Mario West     2007-08 269  61  59  48  13 
Jake Voskuhl   2008-09 240  60  35  59  8   
Jim McIlvaine  1998-99 269  59  48  54  2   
Keith Askins   1998-99 415  58  53  44  10 
Brian Cardinal 2009-10 267  56  48  29  24 
Mark West      1983-84 202  55  37  46  13 
Michael Curry  2004-05 249  39  30  27  15 

Jan Vesely     2012-13 191  37  31  34  11 

Vesely is sitting pretty at 191 minutes, anxiously awaiting to join the club. The question is, will he maintain his remarkable pace for an entire season, or will he at some point "break out" and manage to score 10 points or so in a game and ruin his average.

By the way, LOL at Jason Collins.


Oberto did it as a Wizard. Oberto was epically bad. Check out these games scores over 57 games:

http://www.basketball-reference.com/pla ... elog/2010/

Francisco Oberto, per-36 minutes: 4.6 pts, 5.8 rebs, 2.8 asts, 0.6 stls, 0.5 blks, 2.0 tos, 6.7 fouls

Unbelievably, Jan Vesely is approaching Oberto-bad territory as a Wizard.

Jan Vesely, per-36: 5.8 pts, 6.4 rebs, 2.1 asts, 1.1 stls, 0.8 blks, 1.9 tos, 7.0 fouls

Last season, however, Vesely scored more, rebounded more, and fouled less. He can't be as bad as he he's playing now.

Will the Wizards' success be sustained or was it fool's gold?

Ves must have been hitting Randy's daughter or something.

Vesely is moving up the charts. His PF's continue to exceed his points, rebounds and assists. With 272 total minutes played, he is now 16th on this ignominious list when ranked by total minutes played.

(Side comment: another illustrious former Wizard is achieving this milestone this year. Jared Jeffries is currently totaling 35 fouls, 25 points, 26 rebounds and 9 assists for Portland. But with just 183 total minutes played, he probably won't catch Vesely.)

All I can say to that^ is Vucevic nabbed 29 boards + 20 points last night.
Guys on a message board could do a better job managing the Wizards than Ernie Grunfeld.

So nate, is the 'Janchise' on your fantasy team yet? LOL
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds’ worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And—which is more—you’ll be a Man, my son!
