Man, "no discernable [sic] NBA-level skills," ouch. I think someone needs to watch Chuck's post defense or maybe read what JVG and everyone else says about Chuck's superior NBA-level defense. If Ben Wallace didn't dunk much, would you say he had no NBA-level skills? Shit, Chuck's a better cutter, passer, etc. At least they say that Chuck "outsmarts" people, but come on. I discern some skills. Steve Nash is to offensive spatial awareness what Chuck is to defensive spatial awareness.
All-Star Rockets' Hustlers
Houston - Chuck Hayes: “Has absolutely no discernable [sic] NBA-level skills. Can’t dribble or shoot. Is not very tall or agile. Everyone has to cover their eyes when he shoots free throws. And yet - he’s a very important part of the rotation for an NBA playoff team for two-plus years now. It’s because he outsmarts and outhustles everyone.” David from The Dream Shake
Wild Card - Shane Battier: “Not only is he a shoo-in nominee, the dude should win our tournament outright. He’s not a very good offensive player. He’s valuable because he’s a lock-down defensive player who does everything based on hustle, desire and effort. And he’s certainly not afraid of a few floor burns… or cuts/bruises to the head… or Dikembe’s elbow!” David from The Dream Shake
