You Make Me Break Out…Again

No Foo Fighters this time…instead a link to a web version of the classic “BreakOut” game (called javanoid): Go break some bricks. Then come back and read this…or just read this – if you are only going to do one, stay here. Please.

Back to the task at hand: A follow-up to the Buddies Post of the other day – “You make me breakout”
This time, the only players being considered as the potential “breakout” teammates are the starters – they are the ones who are going to get the most minutes, might as well see who is best suited with whom (that may or may not be correct grammar – if you know, let me know – Knowing is half the battle). Oh, and I decided to go ahead and list the anti-breakout teammate for everyone as well, the player with whom being paired most dramatically hurts the team. Just curious to see if there are any consistencies in either.

The tallies:

Good Teammate:
Gerald Wallace: 5
Raymond Felton and Jason Richardson: 3 each
Nazr Mohammed: 1
Emeka: 0

Bad Teammate:
Nazr Mohammed: 9
Jason, Emeka, Gerald: 1 each

So, there were some consistencies, or one anyway. And, umm…Nazr's performance in this requires some more investigation. I will follow-up on this in the near future. First thought: It does not bode well for the next 3 seasons. Jeez.
