Mike Dunleavy Jr. > Rashard Lewis ???

After watching another bad Miami Heat game last night, I figured it was time for me to address the NBA.

This is probably the 12th time I’ve mentioned it on this blog, but there has to be a good reason why Miami has come on 20 more times than the Boston Celtics. I feel like all of the Heat’s games have been nationally televised this season. It’s really making me sick.

I stumbled across an interesting NBA tidbit the other day and decided to talk about it after Rashard Lewis made that buzzer beater last night.

Did you know that Rashard Lewis is playing no better than Mike Dunleavy, Jr. this year? This fact has to suck for Orlando Magic fans.

Lewis makes about $20 million a year. Dunleavy makes about $9 million a year. Although this is Dunleavy’s best season by far, it can’t make Orlando’s GM feel good that he’s overpaying by about $11 million for Rashard Lewis.

Here are their stats:

R. Lewis – 42 G, 39 minutes/game, 18.6 ppg, 5.1 rpg, 2.4 apg, 1.1 spg, .4 bpg, 44% FG, 39% 3PT, 85% FT

M. Dunleavy Jr – 42 G, 34 minutes/game, 17.5 ppg, 5.9 rpg, 3.1 apg, 1.0 spg, .3 bpg, 49% FG, 42% 3PT, 85% FT.

The more you know ...

I mean.. yes It is unfortunate for Orlando fans.. but after considering Lewis' last couple years of putting up 22.4, 20.1, 20.5 pts per game.. I don't think anyone could have foreseen the drop off in production this year.. He was on the cusp of becoming a legit NBA star...

dunleavy on the other hand.. 14.2, 15.3, and 14.6 in with limited minutes would have prompted no GM to even expect such overachieving performance... i'd chalk it up as a case of complacence on the part of Lewis and sheer hunger and desire to prove oneself to Dunleavy...
