Jamal Murray: BETTER or WORSE than Flip Murray? Let’s take a look at the facts:
TEAM: Jamal Murray has played for just one team, the Nuggets. Flip Murray played for a bunch of different teams, eight by my count, probably because he wasn’t very good. ADVANTAGE: Jamal
PPG: Jamal Murray is averaging 10.2 points per game in his young career. Flip Murray averaged 9.9. The numbers don’t lie, people. Advantage: Jamal.
PLAY STYLE: Jamal Murray is a shooting guard I think but he can sort of handle the ball, maybe? Flip Murray’s basketball reference page says he was a combo guard as well, but I don’t know since I never really saw Flip play. ADVANTAGE: It’s a tie.
HOW GOOD THEY ARE: Jamal Murray is pretty good. I don’t know if the same can be said about Flip Murray. ADVANTAGE: Jamal.
AGE: Jamal Murray is young right now. Flip Murray is old right now. If Flip played in the league right now he would totally suck. ADVANTAGE: Jamal.
INTANGIBLES: Jamal Murray hasn’t been in the league long enough to accrue significant amounts of intangibles. Flip Murray was part of a lot of different locker rooms and probably has intangibles coming out of bodily orifices he didn’t even know he had. ADVANTAGE: Flip.
PLAYOFFS: I am just too lazy right now to look up wether Flip Murray ever went to the playoffs in his career. I don’t think Jamal Murray has but that’s beside the point. ADVANTAGE: Who cares
DTB’S FINAL OFFICIAL CONCLUSION OF TRUTH: I never saw Flip Murray play and I don’t know anything about him other than he had a stupid nickname. I managed to type this whole description just by looking at basketball references and making educated guesses. Jamal wins hands down.
