I'll Miss You, Mike Taylor

Iowa State dismissed my favorite 2006-07 Big 12 player from the team after, the AP says, "a series of arrests."

Taylor's combination of frequent turnovers and even more frequent missed shots was something to behold. We are unlikely to see again soon a player left on the court for 82% of his team's minutes while either missing a shot or turning the ball over once every 3.7 possessions.

That's possessions he's on the court, not possessions he uses.


That he drew votes for the All-Big 12 team only added to the pleasure his high volume ineffiency gave me. I don't know if Iowa State will be any better next year, but they'll be more generic.
