The 25 Worst Foreign Players in NBA History

19. Slava Medvedenko

Stats: 5.3 PPG 2.8 RPG 0.2 BPG
Teams: Lakers, Hawks
Career: (2001-2007)
Country: Ukraine

If you go by his "Per 36 minutes" numbers, Slava looks like a pretty effective player. He averaged 12 minutes a game so we guess he made the most of his minutes. We really wish that were true. Medvedenko was apart of those glorious Lakers teams that included the astounding Kwame Brown and the unstoppable Smush Parker (no shots just truth). However, he did show up when the 80-year-old Karl Malone went down with an injury in 2004. Slava Medvedenko *Stephen A. voice* put up eight points and five boards while playing 21 minutes per game. Amaze.
