   Where Are They Now, 2010; Part 60

- Josh Shipp

Even though he spent quite a lot of his UCLA career deferring offensively to NBA calibre scorers, Josh Shipp has plenty of offense of his own. He is currently second in the Turkish TBL in scoring, averaging 19.3 ppg for Bornova (along with 5.6 rebounds, 2.6 assists and 2.0 steals). The Turkish league is far from the best in the world, and it's not got a lot of parity in it, but it's not a bad one, and scoring 19.3 ppg in it is no small achievement. Shipp is second only to Quincy Douby (23.6ppg), and ranks just ahead of Mire Chatman (Besiktas, 18.4ppg), Kedrick Brown (also Bornova, 18.1ppg), Quinton Hosley (Aliaga, 17.9ppg) and Lonny Baxter (Besiktas, 17.4ppg). That list is made up of all Americans, which alludes to the self-fulfilling prophecy that the best Turkish players don't play in Turkey. But Josh Shipp does, and he plays well.
