Default Panini Booklets, such a wierd combination of Players

Such a crazy card, but why is Faried even in this booklet?
Post your booklets which would have been great, but Panini added a player that kills it.

My favorite is a rebound book that features

Ben Wallace (9.6 average 15.4 season high and 7 straight seasons of 10+)
Blake Griffin (10.4 average)
Dennis Rodman (13.6 average!)
Shaq (10.9 average)
Dirk Nowitzki (8.2 average)
Dikembe Mutombo (10.3 average)
Zydrunas Ilgauskas (7.3 average)

Faried is a rising star down the road so Panini is counting on that.

He might be a rising star, but nothing is for certain.

All the other guys have greatly established themselves.

I mean imagine a quad auto with

Michael Jordan
Kobe Bryant
Lebron James
Klay Thompson

He's in the card because he is a good rebounder. Hope this explains everything for you sir.

This one kind of describes the Lakers this past season...
Darius Johnson-Odom - Darius Morris - Kobe Bryant - Metta World Peace - Pau Gasol - Robert Sacre #/199

A booklet featuring those three and Kobe is just weird.

Yeah, Dirk is a well known name, as are all the others.

Big Z not so much.

Not to mention, Dirk is a PF and Z is a Center.

And sure, 7.3 to 8.2 is a difference.

I mean look at all time ranks

Rodman (22nd)
Wallace (30th)
Dikembe (19th)
Shaq (14th)
Dirk (45th)
Big Z (141st)

One of those things is not like the other

He's averaged as high as 9.3 rpg in 07-08. That's not that bad.

I dislike Hawes being on the 'Center' booklet and thought it was ridiculous that on the 'Rivals' (Lakers Celtics) they have who they do -

Kobe, Shaq, Wilt vs Pierce, Bird, McHale??
(ebay pic, definitely not mine)


Um, who was McHale a rival of there? Shaq for 1 year (with Orlando)? Bird didn't play at the same time as any of them, and vice versa for Wilt.

Should have been Kobe, Magic and Wilt vs Pierce, Bird and Russell. Instead they just threw the players they have on a card because I guess it's just about the team rivalry.
