February 12th, 2010
In order to spice things up a bit, the next few players will be addressed by anagram only.
– Mend Arse Form
Desmon Farmer is in the D-League, trying to find one more NBA call-up from somewhere. In 29 games for the Reno Bighorns, Farmer is averaging 41 minutes, 24.4 points, 5.0 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game, so those numbers certainly support his candidacy.

Marcus Camby is a former DPOY award winner. …
