11. Jordan Hill – Lakers Center/Forward – 2012-13 Stats: 6.7 points per game, 5.7 rebounds per game
*11th player was added to prevent the possibility of a tie.
Hill is a hard working 6’10 athletic forward with a relentless motor. He’s the type of player that any team could use, especially the Lakers’ whose upcoming roster lacks tough, defensive minded guys. Hill is limited offensively but can score without the need of having plays called for him. While his statistics from last season, or even his career, don’t show Hill’s rebounding ability, that is definitely his strength. On a 36 per minute basis last season, Hill averaged 13 rebounds per game which was a higher average than that of Dwight Howard, Tim Duncan, Zach Randolph and Tyson Chandler.
10. DeAndre Jordan – Clippers Center – 2012-13 Stats: 8.8 ppg, 7.2 rpg, 1.4 blocks per game
Jordan is a 6’11 athletic freak whose rim shattering dunking ability has been overshadowed a bit by playing with the guy that tops the marquee in terms of dunking exhibition in the NBA, Blake Griffin. Posterizing dunks aside, Jordan is pretty limited in all other areas of his game. He hasn’t developed as a true rim protector or post defender, has showed little progress developing the offensive side of his game and still can not stay on the floor during crunch time due to his horrid free throw shooting. He is only 25 years old so he has time to develop and has up to this point, albeit at a very slow rate.
