Instead of pointing out stat-sheet stuffers as usual, I'd like to draw your attention to an EKU guard named Bubba Long, who is the 7th least effective player in D1 - of 4,115 - for the amount of time he spends on the court (the ones below him are mostly burly foul-sponges). His 0.0 points and 1.5 assists in nearly 10 minutes may seem like pure garbage time, but is there any statistic that can adequately measure the length of a Bubba? Does he at least have a fan club?
