Usually mastering your craft is regarded as rising to the top of your guild. The cream of the crop. The mountaintop.

But does it not take the same energy to be the bottom of your craft? No, you're right, I guess it doesn't. Still, Tyrus Thomas and DeSagana Diop have mastered the art of being completely terrible basketball players.

For one, neither can get minutes on the court right now. For the Bobcats. In the frontcourt.

Diop has been approaching this level for a while. He has a reputation for being a solid defender, but really, I think his reputation has long outlasted his actual skill level. Diop is really tall and has arms and isn't completely discombobulated on defense and can block shots, but his mobility is so limited that unless he's already planted in the paint, he's not the most difficult defender to finish around.
