FAST FACTS: Cavs point guard Damon Jones was the only guard to draw multiple votes as "worst" (eighth, 2.3%).... The only nonguard among 24 players who got at least one "best" vote was Nuggets forward Reggie Evans, who famously grabbed Clippers center Chris Kaman's groin in last year's playoffs.... Mutombo has 13 assists in 66 games this season.... Nash leads the NBA in assists per game (11.6) but is second in total turnovers (244).
