Josh Boone - Boone has an uncanny knack of peaking in his second year at places. In college, he was best as a sophomore. In the NBA, he was best as a sophomore. And in China, where he's been since leaving the NBA, all his career highs were in his second season.

This decline is evident in his free throw percentage, which achieved the unusual feat of going downwards for four consecutive seasons (54%, 46%, 38%, 33%). Nonetheless, Boone is occasionally useful for some pick and roll offense, and grabs enough rebounds to matter.
