- Smush Parker
Parker is signed in China. See this. His team, Guandong, have made it to the CBA finals, and Parker has been big in the playoffs. He averaged 10.7 points, 8.3 rebounds, 5.7 assists and 4.0 steals in a three game sweep of Bayi in round one, and then exploded for 31.8 ppg, 7.0 rpg, 4.8 apg and 5.0 spg in the semi-final series against Shanghai that Guandong won 3-1. Smush Parker is leading his team to a title. Much like he did with the Lakers. No, wait, that's wrong.

- Smush Parker: 32.0 mpg, 17.9 ppg, 5.6 rpg, 5.4 apg, 2.9 fpg, 2.8 spg, 0.4 bpg, 43% FG, 34% 3PT, 76% FT
NBA journeyman Parker has flirted with a triple double on several occasions this year, including a 21p/12a/9r outing on February 7th and an 18p/9/a/12r outing on January 22nd, but hasn't made one yet. He is third in the league in steals per game, but strangely WAY behind the first two (more on this later), and he's shot more three pointers and twos. Which, considering the 34% success rate, has not really worked out for him.
