It is the perennial topic of heated debate at sports bars everywhere: who’s the worst player in the NBA? Well, wonder no more. ESPN has in its infinite wisdom decided upon one unlucky baller to wear the albatross ‘round his neck: Shayne Whittington. Out of 500 league members, the Indiana Pacers rookie was named 500th in ESPN’s 2014 Player Rankings. Sure, the news may not seem like a compliment (it isn’t), but let’s put things into perspective. The NBA is the finest league of ballers in the world, bar none. Making the bottom slot still means Whittington is better at hoops than the remaining 7,124,999,500 souls left on Planet Earth. You know, give or take.
