Crucial Stat: 16.4 PER
The Difference: Charlie Villanueva was constantly a beast in the NBA games because he has an outside shot and he is tall. Tall and outside shot, doesn't matter who, they're a beast in the game. So while CV was getting cut by the Dominican Republic basketball team or spending disappointing career coming off the bench for some awful, awful teams (and getting signed to laughable contracts), he's been hitting threes and not being a financial albatross for the Pistons in the 2K series. Even in 2K11 when his 70 rating was generous, a few quick subs, and some drive-and-kick by Rodney Stuckey aided by a slow-to-react AI would have Charlie doing a Larry Bird impression in no time. Despicable.
