Welcome to the first in the "How'd He Do" series where we'll be going over every Hornet player and how they performed this season. This is the first of a two part series- this half will be purely about player performance and the next half will be purely financial (and whether a player should stay or go). Most importantly, make sure you vote in the poll down yonder. That way we can create a virtual "approval rating" for every Hornet player. We start with the back-up big man today. Step right up, Melvin!
|2007 - Melvin Ely||3.9||2.8||0.4||13.6 (71st)||9.0 (264th)
Positives: Rebounded solidly off the bench (a rebound rate basically equivalent to David West), made a few flashy post moves, was monumentally better than Hilton Armstrong as a backup big.
Negatives: Fouled too much, was miserable overall offensively (9.0 PER where 15.0 is league average), and was a "black hole," refusing to pass the ball out of double teams.
My Grade (1 to 5): 2
