Spencer Hawes - The Frustrating Big Man
The title of this one says it all. Ironic how it was written the night before he blows a crucial layup in crunch time. Still can't get over how Doug Collins gave this guy 2 years, $13 million after watching him play bad in 2012 and get absolutely destroyed by Kevin Garnett in the ECF. Great signing, Doug.

Well not having him coaching the team in the future would be great. But sticking around in the front office and having a say in basketball decisions...? Ugh, please just go away Doug.

I'm not being a homer if I say Jrue's dunk was better, right? (No, I'm being a homer. This was great.)
