      GS 57 27.4 Richardson,Jason 23.7 GS
      LAC 6 25.9 Olowokandi,Micha 25.6 LAC
      LAC -49 15.1 Richardson,Quent 26.4 LAC
      Mem 36 20.8 Watson,Earl 15.9 Sea
      Sea 86 28.2 Mason,Desmond 22.3 Sea
      Sea 1 29.7 Lewis,Rashard 29.7 Sea


      Some reactions:

      The Richardsons and Mason still strike me as almost like triplets:
      extremely athletic SGs who were mainly dunkers as rookies but who are
      learning to hit the outside jumper. All have all-star potential. Q
      Richardson of course has been slowed down this season by injury; he
      might be the least promising of the three but he still has potential.

      Olowokandi hasn't been great, but he's been better than I expected,
      playing a serviceable center. In a very lean era for centers, he may
      be the best free agent center out there. It'd still be a mistake for
      a team to shell out big bucks for him; granted the alternative
      centers are pretty lame-looking, but since practically every team is
      afflicted with the same problem, putting a mediocre center or out-of-
      position PF out there on the court is still a better option than
      overpaying for the Kandi man.

      Watson's improvement was no surprise, I hated to see him leave the
      Sonics. They should've added a team option to his second year when
      they signed him, instead they simple-mindedly signed him to a 1-year
      contract, and salary restrictions prevented them from matching other
      team's offers.

      I'd thought Lewis was doing a pretty good job of living up to his big
      new contract but these numbers say he's unchanged overall.

        2 guys on their way up, and one who may be sidetracked:

        Kandi ended last year great and started this year even better. Now
        seemingly returning to his former self.

        Michael Olowokandi
        yr min pct sco. reb. ast stl (T.O) blk - total

        > Watson's improvement was no surprise, ...

        I also 'measured' Jason Williams among most-improved when joining the
        Grizzlies. But Watson's shooting pct is up:

        Earl Watson
        yr min pct sco reb ast stl (TO) blk - total
        02 15 .502 7.4 2.7 4.0 1.9 (1.6) .2 - 15.9
        03 18 .565 8.9 4.0 5.3 2.0 (2.0) .5 - 20.8

        Rashard Lewis
        yr min pct sco. reb ast stl (TO) blk - total
