Trenton Hassell was in Boston Tuesday working out for the Celtics, which feature his good friend Kevin Garnett.
Neither he nor his agent could have been happy Thursday to see ESPN has ranked him the worst Net ever...and the worst Bull ever...and the fourth worst Timberwolf too.
In order to qualify for this list, a player needed to have played at least 10 minutes per contest over the course of at least 100 career games with the franchise. The ranking is based primarily on John Hollinger's Player Efficiency Rating. Of Hassell as a Net, ESPN's Tom Haberstroh writes, "It's fitting that last season's 12-win Nets team started Trenton Hassell 31 games and paid him $4.4 million to be their 12th leading scorer."
Two other ex-Nets made the worst list as well: Brian Scalabrine was listed as the worst Celtic and DeSagana Diop as the worst Cavalier.
