John Hollinger wrote a "Biggest NBA Disappointments" article on espn.com today. And I found this one tidbit particularly amusing.
Earl Clark, Suns
He's a lottery pick, he played three seasons in college and he plays for a team with a limited bench. Yet, he still can't get on the floor. Ladies and gentleman, I bring you Earl Clark, the early leader in the race of the biggest draft bust of 2009. Clark sports a PER of 6.99 on 37.1 percent shooting in 36 appearances, and increasingly seems to be falling out of favor, playing a total of seven minutes in Phoenix's past three games.
Hahaha!!! I will forever be able to hear the high pitched, southern drawl squeals of the the portly Joe Bob looking fellow that sat behind me at last year's MU game in Louisville. "DON'T GIVE IT TO EARL!!!" "AWWW, EARL!!! WHAT THE...." "JUST TAKE 'IM OUT ALREADY!!!!" Absolute priceless comedy gold. After hearing a Earl's game broken down so eloquently, by someone that probably watched a lot of him in college, I can't say that I'm terribly surprised at his NBA production being a disappointment. I bet Phoenix is looking forward to someday having a team centered around Clark and Robin Lopez. Hell, New Jersey has the good Lopez brother and they're 4-47.
