Garnett, Kobe, Duncan… Foyle??

Just wanted to finish ESPN’s sidebar from their Garnett trade article today that found Adonal Foyle and his storied allegiance to the Golden State Warriors among rare company.  They left out just one crucial statistic that we felt obligated to add:

Adonal_foyle_among_legends_2Minutes played (career)

Kevin Garnett            35,536

Kobe Bryant               28,379

Tim Duncan              27,964

Adonal Foyle             11

    Adonal Foyle has over 12000 career minutes, last year he averaged 10 MPG. His high was 25 in 2001. Check your info.

    It’s obviously not his real minutes dipshit.

    The fact that Golden State has kept him this long is the biggest disgrace of all.

    Article is stupid, first poster is right. Sure 8.25 million last year may seem like a lot for 2.2 PPG and 2.7 RPG, but he had some decent years in the past. One year 6 PPG 7 boards and almost 3 blocks, he was not always terrible.

    And the Golden State fans begin to swarm like hungry sharks…

    Anyone who recites Adonal Foyle’s stats like that is either…

    a) a desperate Warriors fan in denial
    b) a Warriors fan who went to Colgate
    c) Chris Mullen typing under the alias of a fictional movie character
    d) bored

    Did he really average 6 PPG 7 boards and almost 3 blocks one year? Holy crap, someone get Springfield on the phone

    2.7 BPG is nothing to sneer at, of course I would not pay 8 million+ for him. How come he never comes up in the most overpaid players?

    the comments by fans are even funnier than the post, which is remarkable

    I didn’t know Foyle had groupies, pretty impressive

    (according to Billy King, Sixers’ GM, Foyle at 8 mill per year is “a steal”)

    Mitch, you ask how he never comes up in most overpaid player conversations but we wonder how he ever comes up at all.

    And ‘The Balls’, we’ll add this to your multiple choice question:

    e) actually is Adonal Foyle
