Mike Kahn: Calbert Cheaney Worst Sixth Man
Based on his foul-proned, offensively woeful pre-season, CBS
Sportsline's Kubla Kahn may have a point...
Previewing the best and worst of the 1999-00 NBA season

The countdown has begun for the tip-off of the 1999-2000 NBA season, which
means any number of things. <snips>
Worst sixth man: Calbert Cheaney, Boston. Cheaney was supposed to be a
10-year NBA starter with defensive acumen, shooting range and ballhandling
skills. After all, he was a great player for Bobby Knight at Indiana. Then
again, with the exception of Isiah Thomas (who was only there two years),
name another four-year player besides Quinn Buckner who played up to his
billing in the NBA? At least they all do get good jobs after graduation.
