We still have no clue why Trevor Ariza left after an OK season at UCLA. It's taken him five seasons to average double figures. When he came into the league with the Knicks he played with great energy, and was a fan favorite. And that's where it stopped. However, once he learned how to make a three, he helped the Lakers win the 2009 title by hitting big ones.
