30Q: Is Beno Udrih the Basketball Richard Nixon?

We're asking 30 questions about the Kings' 2010-11 season.

In my SBNation season preview, I said that if Beno Udrih were a President of the United States, he would be Richard Nixon, because of

 

The astute/pinko Andy Sims, in the comments, suggested that Nixon merely only said he was not a crook. It is highly likely Nixon was, in fact, a crook. So the analogy -- Beno as Nixon, Beno not a crook -- doesn't quite fit.

Unless you think Beno, like Nixon, is merely only claiming not to be a crook while, in fact, being a crook.

Hmm.

Beno Udrih, two-point shooting, over time.

Just slightly better than league average from downtown over his career. A few seasons above league average, a few above. No surprises. We can expect Beno to shoot a little below league average, or a little above league average, or at league average.

Just a touch worse than league average on twos, but almost assuredly just a bit above league average on twos among guards. A few seasons above league average, a few below. We can reasonably expect performance within the bounds of "average."

Beno is an average rebounder at point guard. He'll about average at assist rate, a touch better than average in terms of turnovers. He is almost assuredly below average on defense.

Overall, he's a pretty average NBA guard. About as average as they come.

***

The average NBA salary in 2010-11 will be $5.765 million.

In 2010-11, Beno Udrih will be paid $6.478 million.

Beno Udrih is a crook.

Beno Udrih is stealing $700,000 from the Maloofs and possible the American taxpayers this season.

***

Beno Udrih is not a very good crook, because he's an average player getting played a slightly above average salary.
