FanHouse Names Bogans One of NBA's Worst Players

NBA FanHouse has constructed a list of the NBA's Worst Players and former Kentucky Wildcat Keith Bogans comes in at No. 10 on the list.

Here is an excerpt:

10. Keith Bogans, Chicago Bulls (EF)

EF: I know he has started 44 games for the Bulls, and can play some defense, but Thibodeau must be blind.

BS: I had him on a fantasy team at some point, but that might just have been because he was getting minutes in the Stan Van Gundy offense. Actually, he put up some decent numbers in Charlotte. Certainly, he was bad enough that he led scouts to tragically undervalued Jodie Meeks.

EF: He is not actually deserving of placement on this list, but I won't stand for his starting 44 games and must point it out.

BS: Has Keith Bogans ever been mentioned on Twitter?

EF: Only by Bulls fans.

The lowdown on Bogans:

- Started all 44 games for the Chicago Bulls
- Salary: $1.6 million
- Statistics: 3.5 PTS, 1.2 AST, 32.7% 3PT, 17.6 MIN
- In 44 games, Bogans has reached double figures in scoring 3 times

Why is he starting for Chicago?

- Bogans does all the things that don't show up on the stat sheet: he is a defensive stopper, doesn't hurt the team and gives the youthful Bulls veteran leadership

My Thoughts:

- He shouldn't be on the list of worst players in the league by any stretch, but I can see the argument that he shouldn't be a starter. That being said, the Bulls are 21-8 in December and January so something must be working correctly.
