The Weakest Link: Philadelphia 76ers

Someone, possibly Franz Liszt, once said, “A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.” I don’t really get what that means, but as the playoffs approach, El Blowtorch will be profiling the worst player on each team’s roster. Then, the players will face off in a simulated one-on-one game of NBA 2K8 if it’s available at Video Villa. Obviously, this will provide the in-depth analysis needed to predict the winners for each playoff series. Up next, the Philadelphia 76ers and Calvin Booth…

I was amazed that Calvin Booth was on the 76ers. He’s terrible. But so terrible that he’s awesome? Possibly.

Throughout his NBA career, Calvin Booth has sucked for 4 NBA teams (Dallas twice, Washington twice, Philly and Seattle). His highest season scoring average is 6.2. He is 6’11” and has averaged 2.8 reabounds per game for his career. So in general, yes, he sucks A LOT.

But here’s the kicker, in his 8 NBA seasons Calvin Booth has made $34,589,466. Well played, Calvin Booth. Well played, indeed.
