IBN Notes: The 2005-06 season was a great year for Nocioni. "Chapu", as he is nicknamed (after the Mexican children TV series El Chapulín Colorado), improved in every category during the regular season. Averaging almost 5 more points on significantly better FG%, three-point shooting and FT%. His shot selection didn't change, he just started hitting his jumper with more efficiency. He raised his game even more in that year's playoffs, averaging 10 more points (22.3), more rebounds (8.8 > 6.1), on a blistering 56% from the field, 47% from three, and 85% from the free throw-line. If Nocioni can keep the momentum, and he doesn't have any problem staying motivated, the 2006-07 NBA season can be a definitive season for him...
