Get That Weak Sauce Outta Here!

It's fairly common for NBA players to get their shots blocked. It happens to everyone, sometimes even multiple times in a game. Now that Yahoo! Sports is keeping track of the 'blocks against' category in their box scores, fans get to stay informed on who's getting rejected most frequently.

In last night's schedule of games, Brandon Roy, Jerryd Bayless, Al Horford, Marcus Thornton, Derrick Rose, Manu Ginobili, Amare Stoudemire, CJ Miles and Deron Williams all shared the glorious honor of the Weak Sauce Hat Trick- getting their feeble offerings airmailed back to them thrice each.

Not to be outdone, TJ Ford served up four marshmallows for the defense to play volleyball with.

I'm trying to find a stat to find out who leads the league in BA's. Although I could venture some guesses...

Zach Randolph's gotta be up there. Bayless seems like he gets every other shot sent. Dwight Howard was laughing at how easy it was to pack Bayless.

Andray Blatche got SIX of his swatted last night in the loss to the Knicks, who don't even have a real shot blocker on the roster. And he turned the ball over 8 times to boot. Yikes.

I've been wondering wtf the ba meant for years now. Leave it to you to blog about it. Seems like a useless stat to follow, won't it be better to have the 2nd assist like in Hockey. (they do do that in hockey, right) (i hate hockey)

I wouldn't mind seeing flops kept as an official stat. More than 20 in a season and they start suspending you.
