Turnovers:

The one area of Ben Gordon's game that definitely needs to improve. That said, him being whistled almost twice as many times for double dribbles than any other player in the league seems very fishy. I'm not saying his handle doesn't need to get better, but my guess is as he becomes more of a vet, and makes a couple All-Star teams, a lot of those whistles will be swallowed.

Also, over at Blog-a-Bull, Hot Shit kindly points out that T2's Roland Rating is now on the plus side, with a score ranking him above every rookie except Paul Milsap.

Speaking of which, has everyone checked out Tyrus Thomas' Web site? It's pretty hilarious, particularly its opening crunk rap song with the lyric: "SEC Defensive Playa Of The Year!" Also, he says his nickname is "T-Time."

T-Time?! That's ridiculous. Way too genteel. I've been going with T2, but now that I think about it, the T-1000 is far superior: A perfect killing machine whose technology (like his athleticism) is state-of-the-art and ahead of its time. Yes, the T-1000 is definitely where it's at.

Apologies for not mentioning this, but Balkman is +2.1. Milsap, Balkman, Thomas in that order. The good thing (because we don't have adjusted plus/minus) is Utah and the Bulls are both good teams who play their best when those rookies are in. The Knicks suck, so who cares how well they play with Balkman.

Also worth noting -

The linked 82games random stat that includes Eddy Curry's annoying turnover issues. E-City's hands were always good for catching, just not anything else. Also - Why no Capt. James Tee-Hee or Duhon in those point guard posts?

And while I agree T-Time is more lamer than a sports blog, we can do better than T-1000. I've given this thought, and even emailed LSU bloggers (they suggested Skyrus). Nothing on that front. It's tough to force a nickname. For all the misadventures Ron Artest has enjoyed, the consensus is still 'Ron-Ron'.

I'm going to rock Icarus until something better falls in my lap.
