Maceo Baston - Baston's NBA redux between 2007 and 2009 didn't see him play a whole lot, but he did do quite well in the time that he did get. Last season was his worst season, yet even Baston's worst season was pretty good; he averaged 2.5 points and 2 rebounds in 8 minutes per game, and his PER was 12.3. His career PER is 14.4, too, which makes you wonder why he's only played 831 NBA minutes in three and a bit seasons. He didn't play in the NBA last year and is now 35 years old, but he's always been productive. And, in the NBA at least, he's always been overlooked too.

- Macy O'Baston

Baston's NBA redux over the last three years saw him not play a whole lot, but he did do quite well in the time that he did get. Last season was his worst season, yet even Baston's worst season was pretty good; he averaged 2.5 points and 2 rebounds in 8 minutes per game, and his PER was 12.3. His career PER is 14.4, too, which makes you wonder why he's only played 831 NBA minutes in three and a bit seasons.

Baston went to camp with the Pistons, but did not make the team. The Pistons decided they wanted both Chucky Atkins and an empty roster spot more than both him and Deron Washington, regardless of how many early season injuries they had. The Pistons are about $11 million short of the luxury tax, have a roster spot open, have had many injuries and need more depth, yet they won't actually sign anyone to help. They even waived Washington when keeping him cost them nothing until tomorrow. I just.......don't see the logic.

After being waived by the Pistons, Baston has not signed elsewhere, although there's rumours of a possible move to Aris in Greece.

The Macy O'Baston gag originated from Paul Shirley's book. Wish I'd thought of it. It's flexible, though; how about Mark O'Jaric, Mark O'Banic, Stank O'Barac, Fabrice E. O'Oberto and Jamari O'Davidson? Or, as an extension of that, how about Mooch E. Norris, Anthony T. Olliver, Jerry D. Bayless, Mehmeto Kerr, and Peter E. Koponen?
