The problems come when a depth player has to get tossed into a heavy usage situation. Mav was the kind of kid you want on the team, but as a role player. That's not garbage. Often times the player gets blamed for the position the coaching staff or injuries to other players put them into.the Mav discussion gets back to this weird notion that - if you are not a star player, then you must be garbage.
there is still room in the world for players who are not great - not stars - but are capable of providing depth.
I went and looked up Mav's college stats. For his career, he averaged roughly 3 points and 1 rebound a game - and less than 1 turnover a game.
as of last year, he was still playing in some pro basketball league in the Phillippines. He even got traded to another team for a player and a 1st-round draft pick.
