Crawford
&
Dell Curry

I think folks often forget what a good scorer Curry was.

I'd be interested to see a Top 5 or somesuch list of bench points scored.
But all I got was the 2 over 10k.

Dell Curry had an incredibly quick release.

I thought of Lou Williams.
Terry & J Earl Smith crossed my mind but I figured they used to start a lot.

Dell Curry started just 99 games compared to 1083 off the bench.

Here's a minor Q:
Dell Curry and his son Steph Curry actually have the exact same name.
What is their full formal name?

Right you is.

I imagine few fans know that Steph's first name is Wardell.
Which of course is where Dell comes from.

You don't run into Wardell much.
Makes me think of tenor sax player Wardell Gray.
Talented cat who died young under mysterious circumstances.

Sonics had a Wardell in the 70s, Jackson. Bill Russell coached him.

A Handful of Young Turks in the NBofA:

Enes Kanter - NYK starting C.
Omer Asik is buried on the bench in NO
Ersan Ilyasova on a one year deal with ATL

Cedi Osman on the Cavs.  (hasn't shown much when I've seen him)
Furkan Kormaz for Philly

I was surprised there are 5 Turkish players in the L.
Kanter the only starter.  
Ilya the only other seeing regular minutes.

Didn't the Knix have one of the first/early Turks in the NBA?

Mirsad Turkan or somesuch ...

Edit: Looked him up and . . . Mirsad Turkcan played 7 games for the Knix in 2000, another 10 games for MIL that same year, and that was his NBA career.  Wonder why I remembered that.  Just missed a C in his family name.  Seems he was born in Serbia, of Bosniak origins, moved to Turkey and became a citizen there.  Was the first Turk in the NBofA.
Led EuroLeague in rebounding 4 years.  I was picturing him as an SF, but he was a 6'9" PF.
