   .....Third Prize Is You're Fired

Sykes graduated from Clemson in 2009, and went to camp last summer with the Phoenix Suns. He didn't have much of a chance of making the team, however, and thus didn't. Sykes subsequently spent his first professional season in the D-League, averaging 10.2 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game for the Sioux Falls Skyforce, mainly off of the bench. Sykes shot 58% from the field for the simple reason that most of his shots are dunks; he's a dunker, an athlete, an energy player and a help defender, who can help on both ends of the floor for that reason. Unfortunately, he's also doing that at 6'8.

- Raymond Sykes

After going undrafted out of Clemson, Sykes signed a training camp contract with the Phoenix Suns. He had little to no chance of making the team, however, and was waived within a week. Sykes then took his energetic style of play to the D-League and spent the year with the Sioux Falls Skyforce, averaging 10.5 points, 4.7 rebounds, 1.1 blocks and 3.0 fouls in 23.9 minutes per game. His PER was 16.7; over 48 minutes, that equates to a PER of 33.5, which is almost Lebron-like (38.3 PER per 48.)
