I remember that play, and he did it again later in the season, but I don't remember what team it was against.

That's exactly why he got a spot on the poll

I kinda think the Heat had 3 of the lowest IQ's in basketball history last season. Dorell Wright, Beasley and Diawara.

Al Harrington slapping the backboard to get the technical and we lose. Twice. In the same season against the same team:facepalm:

Zach's a close second though

It's tough to see but that was an airball

Yes, I remember that play. Craziest thing is there is like 8 seconds left on the shot clock when he hoists a 3PTer.

And yes, I voted for Al Harrington also.

Why the hell is Monta Ellis up there?

While Rolling Stone recently declared Kevin Durant(notes) better than Kobe Bryant(notes), Warriors guard Monta Ellis(notes) has his own opinion on who should be ranked as the NBA’s three best players.

“I’m going to say LeBron James(notes),” Ellis said recently. “He can do it all, pass, score, defend, block shots. No. 2, I would have to say, me. I can do a whole lot of things: defend, score, make passes, do whatever I need to do.




JR Smith?

Both of them take dumb shots, seem to be out of position all the time and just overall don't have their head in the right place.

dorell is far from a low IQ basketball player...

same with diawara...he's low/no talent...

beasley is inconsistent

Tony Allen on the offensive side of the game. One dumb decision after another including tearing his ACL on a dunk attempt well after a blown whistle.

Good thread.

I'll be a homer and go with what I know, and I know Sam Dalembert has maybe the lowest basketball IQ I've ever seen. He can be a top-notch rebounder and shot-blocker, but that really never made up for his 4-5 mental mistakes per game (if there's a stat for that, I'd like to see it).

Ehhh Jr smith has made some dumb moves. I dunno bout dumb moves on the court but Monta Ellis opted to get on a moped just weeks after he signed a contract that didnt allow him to ride mopeds, and even worse... he was stupid enough to actually hurt himself on it and cost the warriors an entire season.

Most players would know not to get on a moped, and the few that liked to be bad boys definitely wouldnt be dumb enough to hurt themselfs.... esp considering it happened right after he signed his contract and im sure his agent went over it with him.

What about Tyrus Thomas?? I cant find the play on youtube, but a few years ago... he had a wide open dunk cuz he was cherry picking and he managed to roll his ankle on flat ground... it was an incredible freak thing, looked kinda like tony allens injury.
