Layups: Reconsidering Wayman

Posted by Neil Paine on May 26, 2009

Most Wayman Tisdale memorial pieces over the past few weeks focused on his great college career, his terrific musical talent, and his irreplaceable personality, but few systematically broke down his pro career and looked at him as a player without the positive bias one is tempted to include because of what a great person he was (speaking for myself, I know I'm guilty of glossing over his somewhat disappointing pro career for that reason). Harlan Schreiber of HoopsAnalyst, though, took on the challenge of putting aside personal feelings for Wayman, and the result is a really good retrospective on the strengths and weaknesses of Tisdale the player.

    I think he did a great job writing that piece. It is not as easy as it seems to be objective when writting, but he did a great job. Shareef Abdur-Rahim type player I would guess with less rebounding.
