   The best of what's left after what was the best of what's left has gone and is no longer left
2010-08-21

- Mike Wilks - After playing four games for Oklahoma City last season - totalling 16 points and 4 assists in 59 minutes - Mike Wilks can now rightfully claim to have 9 years of NBA experience. Better still, he's played only 233 games in that time for nine different franchises (Atlanta, Houston, Minnesota, Denver, Washington, San Antonio, Seattle, Oklahoma City, Cleveland), and has been on the rosters of five more (Chicago, Milwaukee, Orlando, Memphis, Sacramento). So, apart from one season in the D-League (2001-02), and one fortnight with Montepaschi Siena (March 2008), Wilks has spent his entire career in the NBA....where he's barely played and signed about 46 different contracts. Is there one more left in the gun? You have to hope so.

One of the best journeyman careers of a generation. And that is said with appreciation. When people keep coming back this much, you're doing something right.
