first of all i am not going to even mention the obvious players like bismack biyombo on the bobcats, jeffrey taylor, maurice harkless, or darius morris, etc.  Guys like this might just be in there for defensive purposes or whatever, but i'm focused on some high profile guys like these:

O.J. Mayo - holy fuckin'SHlT, a 6-4 shooting guard who went to the mavericks for a reason, let go by memphis, having his best shooting year field goal wise at 46.5% from the field.  How the hell is he even at this percentage?  I guarantee you his percentage is going to be down as we near the playoffs.  Did anyone see him play against okc?  Any team with a good defender is going to be able to shut him down, oj mayo will never fool me, i remember when he played for 1 year at usc, happy to see mike conley doing so well now actually.  oj mayo cannot do jack SHlT vs a good defender or a team with a good defense.  

Deron Williams - I remember when he was at Illinois and i said there's no fuckin'way he is going to do good in the nba.  His rookie year of course wasn't that good but then the next 4.5 years, how the hell was he so good and then going to new jersey, he hasn't done anything.  He's playing exactly the way i thought he would now which is a very poor field goal shooting percentage.  Jerry Sloan is definitely a genius and deron williams can only do well in a great system/coach unlike say a kobe bryant who can adjust his game to any coach/system.  You can't fool me Deron Williams!

Metta World Peace - Hell yeah he has been playing a lot better but wow, he's a career 41.8% from the field at the forward position.  This guy is a nutjob, banging elbows on james harden like he did last year and he's very inconsistent.  Last year he came out of shape after the lockout happened and he is not an inspired basketball player.  He only plays when he feels like it, and his steals numbers were way down till this year.  I absolutely cannot believe the lakers have held onto him this long, and there's a reason why serge ibaka wanted to shove him in his face earlier this year.

Brandon Jennings - for his nba career shooting fg percentage at a career 39%, that is very unacceptable and he wonders why the coach didn't play him in the 4th quarters earlier this season?  This guy is a fuckin'whiner and very inconsistent.  Just cause he scored 55 points as a rookie one time vs golden state, i'm sorry but brandon jennings is bullshit.

Russell Westbrook - 42.7% fg from the field careerwise and shooting under 40% so far this season.  One day this guy will implode, there was a reason why he played behind darren collison at ucla.  When he was drafted as early as okc picked him his rookie year, i could not believe it.  I know it's really hard to see this but you really have to watch russell westbrook play basketball over a period of time to really see what i mean.  anytime i have a bet against westbrook or on okc, he becomes involved in the game in such a way that angers me and i can no longer watch, gotta switch it to something else.  And during the rare times that he does something in my favor whether i am betting against okc or need them to cover, it's like got damn why does this have to be this way with him all the time, he's very inconsistent.

Jason Richardson - career 44% fg from the field, but he played with the suns and warriors at a time where both teams were run and gun.  On any other team he's barely 40% from the field and that is very unacceptable for a swingman that he is.  Hell his defense isn't even that great either, highly overrated player with a big name.

Demarcus Cousins - Holy fuckin'garbage, talk about a guy who is dumb as a rock on the basketball court who over reacts and has an attitude problem, going after sean elliott the commentator on the spurs for what he said on the air?  And he says he can move his feet like no other big man can like him?   He's 6 foot 11, almost a 7 footer and he's shooting 43.6% from the field careerwise and 41.4 percent from the field this season alone.  That is absolutely bullcrap for a big man like him.  Somebody needs to grab a rebound up high and elbow the fukk out of his orbital bones coming down.

Andrea Bargnani - 43.8% from the field careerwise, at least this guy is known to shoot three pointers but still, he's a 7 footer drafted first overall with a lot of hype but he's a waste.  He might do well in a run and gun type offense of the suns and warriors of back then but it's unfortunate.  On any other team he's probably not the starter but because he's played for craptors since he first came out, he starts.  On top of everything, he's always injured.

Randy Foye - at least the clippers were smart to get rid of him and there was a reason for that.  Why do teams continue to try and start shooting guards who are undersized?  I'd rather have a decent defender who won't score as much and they don't even have to be as good of a defender as tony allen.  Randy Foye career fg is 41% yet the last 3 seasons, he has been under 40%, randy foye is bullshit for sure.

He has definitely improved since he was at ucla but his job to me should be more about making other players better but right now he cannot focus on this.  He can get so worked up about getting blocked against driving to the hole, or shooting that mid-range jumper in transition near the free throw line.  Yes he is very fast, but if he doesn't change his game/mindset, his career might go downhill.  He's got a really good defense that gets blocks and steals that allow okc to run and gun.  Most of his baskets are very high percentage and layups as a result of great defenders on okc, like ibaka,sefolosha, and durant, and you feel that he will do good on other teams?  To me on other teams, he's well below 40 percent from the field but because of those transition baskets that okc tends to get from their defense causing turnovers, as it stands right now he's near 43% careerwise from the field.

dennis rodman is not a good example because he was there for rebounding and defending, that is it.  He was never any of these bullshit players that i just listed who keep taking shot after shot even though they happen to be as cold as a turkey.  If any of those fukkers would stop for a bit, take a back step and realize they can't throw a pea into an ocean on any given night, then i would respect them, but every single one off these bullholes that i list continue to take stupid looking shots despite them having bad shooting nights against a defender/defense that owns them.  

And you said it yourself, metta world peace is a defender, that's what he is and that's what he should be, why does he keep taking shots when he is not making them?  Drive to the fukken basket if you're open, get the foul, make your free throws and then i'll respect him.  And so you compare dennis rodman to metta world peace?  and so i probably don't know basketball?  For anyone who wants to be judges, bang that gavel now, and tell me the nba court of law is in session now please!

Westbrook and deron williams are those 2 guys i really expect for people to give me a lot of heat for but if they are not deserving of being on this SHlTLIST,  i'd really like to know in the most intelligent manner possible.  If i am missing anyone on this list, i'd love to know that too, as much as these guys are on this list now, i am not afraid to admit i was wrong about russell wilson when i made the nfl qb bullshit list in november, especially when seattle was at chicago trailing, on the 2 minute drill in obvious pass situations, russell wilson had a great drive to win it for seattle on the road.  russell wilson has really shocked me.

by the way, sorry about the thread title, i am not necessarily implying that all those listed should not be starting in the nba, more importantly than anything else is the ability to adjust their game and stop taking shots more than anything.  In fact mayo and randy foye are probably the only 2 on this list who might not be starting on other teams anyways.

jason richardson

guy was one of the best clutch shooters in the nba during his years as a warrior,sun and magic.now hes 32 years old after many injuries u cant expect him to fly high and shoot 60% from the field these days

bargani would be great playing for western conference team.hes been playing for wrong team all career

jennings inconsistent agree with that but on fire can beat his team opponents single handedly.the main reason bucks aint amongst the worst teams anymore

Westbrook two major problems are his turnovers and when he is ice cold he continently shoots and still misses instead he should just assist to Durant or the other weapons, Westbrook does have good games but would be better if he moved his postitom too SG because he is not a true PG

You forgot to mention russell westbrook's bad shot selections. Sometimes I don't know wth is going on in his head when he takes 20 ft jumpers when the lane is clear and drives when it's stacked inside. His visions seem limited at times too when he would rather force a difficult shot than pass it to durant or someone else for a easy shot. Guy really seem clueless as fukk during times so I'm not really surprised that he's on your list. I think he'll improve on those aspects though as he's still young and still learning.

and lets just say the guys you listed had under 50 percent from the field, that might be ok because they don't take enough shots on average per game anyways.  Many of the guys i listed take way too many shots, they should do something else like drive to the hoop and get to the free throw line more often or something.

yep really gave joe johnson a thought but decided not to.  pau gasol is up there too but i'll give him the benefit of a doubt but he's trying to become andrea bargnani with those 3 point shot attempts, i am not amused by that.

time to nominate Josh Smith to this list, does anyone deserve to come off this list?  Do i feel westbrook needs to come off this list?  hell no!  by the way josh smith free throw shooting is HORRIBLE and this fukker wants a max contract?  i don't think so
