Is this the first time ever that a starter on a team in the playoffs had a negative PER?

What happened to Tayshaun Prince in the playoffs?

This guy was a starter on the Pistons team and This guy was soo bad that he had a negative 0.4 PER.

I've seen guys who at times had a PER of 4 or 5, but a freaking -0.4 PER.

His Numbers were: 33 MPG 3.5 RPG 1.3 APG AND 3.8 PPG on FG25%

Was he injured? Cuz Prince used to be a stud. I thought of Trevor Ariza as a poor mans
version of Prince, but in these finals Ariza has grown soo much more. Ariza's gonna be making some major coin in his new contract.

PER is very biased offensively and Tayshaun's shot wasn't falling. The Pistons were running their offense so much as running everything through Hamilton.
