    Well, guards take the majority of their shots from outside and don't get blocked as often, and the guards that get to the basket usually have their shots changed or draw fouls...

    I can understand that Malik Rose at the top of the list due to his size and the position he plays but what about brad miller? That dude is over 7 ft tall and agile but still got almost 14% of his shots rejected? Dayum...

    Actually, I was expecting Yao to be on that list. He was getting rejected last season on a semi-regular basis by 6'10" scrubs

    Yeah, if Yao plays AK47 82 games a year and I am sure he would be on the list next year. :)

    Neat list. Thanks for posting it.

    Not a big deal, but I see this thread as more appropriate for the NBA Dish, unless a critical mass of posters want to dwell on Kenny Thomas.

    Kenny Thomas is also 10th on the list as a member of the 76ers.

    The majority of the players on that list are undersized for the position they play. Obviously, that's not a problem for Yao. I think it can seem like Yao gets blocked more than he really does because just because it's such a huge deal when a player spotting him 7+ inches blocks him.

    I am just surprised with brad miller, amare and vlade on the list. Those are good players.

    I am also glad we traded that black hole KT to philly. He's consistent. Consistently getting blocked with both teams. :)
