Who is the worst Wildcats Import Big of all time?

Seeing Dario Hunt play the last 2 weeks and the possibility of him being released had me thinking that he is one of the worst import bigs from the Wildcats I can remember.

Below are the ones that I can remember to fit into this category.


Jeff Allen - Was very unspectacular. Almost ruined the whole thing with a turnover in Q4 of SF3 against Giants causing Grace to foul out. His greatest contribution to the team was getting injured and missing the entire GF series.

Ontario Lett - A walking offensive foul. His post moves were very efficient at ending up a charge / turnover.

Derek Cooke Jnr - Runs like a Gazelle, plays basketball like a Potato.

Dario Hunt - Cannot set a proper screen to save his life. Free throws are suspect. Defensively does not hold a candle to Brandt, often looks lost on D. Turnover prone. If Majok Majok is taking your starting spot, you need to start considering playing in a place like the Philipines.

Dewey Michaels - A cult figure but that is all. Had that annoying lift the roof gesture with each score, thats all I can remember.

Who do you think is the worst or can you think of others?

Was Smith a big? I remember him as a three, although I only barely recall that he existed at all.

Dewey. Was only cult like, because he was basically embracing his lack of ability. One good looking rooster though I'll give him that.

Definitely not Hunt! He mightn't have starred, but he ain't in Lett, Michaels or Smith territory!

Dario doesn't belong in the same conversation as these guys. He's had a few really good games, just not consistent enough and hasn't learned how to stay out of foul trouble. His offensive rebounding has been a key to a few of the cats big wins.

Jeff Allen was pretty bad but I was too young to really notice

Ontario Lett I felt could play but fouls prevented him from showing his best

Dewey Michaels was pretty average. Think he played at cairns after Perth and I was surprised he got another gig

IIRC smith was an injury replacement for the great Andrew Vlahov but was more of a big.

Are there historical NBL stats available? I'm sure they would show Smith was an absolute BUM and far behind Hunt.

Smith only lasted about 6 games I think.

AD Smith - one of the nicest humans you'd ever meet, but yeah as for his on court performances.... Had a good three point shooting clip in college but was a little overwhelmed in the NBL. Had a decent career throughout Europe and is now doing very nicely back in his home state of Oregon selling real estate.

Plumlee will be better than Hunt, Cooke Jr and McKay.
