Nice to see you around MMJD. Missed you.
I've been around, just not productive. Kinda like the Pistons in the ECF. The reason that I don't post more is that almost no one ever replies to my posts, and almost no one replies in the thread again. I've pretty much become the thread-killer. Probably because I get involved too late. My timing must just be off. Kinda like the Pistons in the ECF. Did you like my line-up? I love it. PG-Calderon/ Stuckey SG-Hamilton/ Stuckey/AA SF-Marion/ Moon PF-Maxiel/ Johnson/ Dyce C-Camby/ Johnson/ Dyce/ Samb
Only problem I have in getting rid of Tay and Billups, Defense. Joe D wants Defense. That's what I do not understand in going to the well with Phoenix or Denver. nope.
I like Calderon a lot, but I'm not sure that we will be very competitive dumping 3 starters, not just out of the starting rotation, but completely out of the lineup. This is blowing up the team in a big way. That said, we sure would be fun to watch. There is only one missing ingredient. Leadership. What does your complete 15 man roster look like?
I like Hamilton's brand of leadership much more than Billups, Prince or Sheed- play hard all the time, no matter what. And I think that Stuckey will be a natural born leader. But in the end, the single most important person in the organization is Joe D, and as long as he is around and is actively promoting his principles, I see us being competetive. I think that the changes I recommended get us dialed back in to defense, get us more reliant on younger players, make us the strongest rebounding team in the league and get rid of the complacency that has brought us down. Blow it up Joe!
ESPN - Draft Watch: Trade talk involves D-Wade, Yi, Sheed - NBA ...Do any of those teams have anything we want?
the key in that quote you had was they had a 1st round pick... we'd have to take a player that was enough of a salary to make the deal work but the thing we would be trading for would be the draft pick. Joe would do the trade if he thought it was a draft slot that would have a player worth going after. much prefer getting chicago's draft pick though lol
Somebody might have already shared this one but... Charlotte Observer | 06/05/2008 | Bobcats should pursue Wallace ...hmmmm, depends on what players I guess.
the only thing i could see us trading wallace for is okafor out of charlotte or beindrins out of golden state. I dont know much about beindrins so id have to say go for okafor
Biedrins is a soft, spidery, and overrated rebounding power forward who plays center for a team that runs a system inflating the stats of its players.
I'm from Toronto and I'm positive that Colangelo will not give up Calderon. The other PG would be Ford, but he has an ego problem and he feels that he should be a starter. Jose and Jamario to Detroit would be awesome
Detroit/Seattle RealGM: Trade Checker Detroit/Denver RealGM: Trade Checker Detroit/Memphis RealGM: Trade Checker Detroit/Utah RealGM: Trade Checker The Seattle and Memphis trades are pretty bad.
Why would you do that trade? Samb is Sene, Collison is worthless. Would Memphis do that? Sheed in Utah is a priceless thought. Priceless but I would never in 10,000 years do that trade.
Hey Smooth, I just got back from visiting Toronto. Loved it! My friends and I stayed downtown on King Street and hung out across the street at Jo Momma's and Gretzky's restaurant. Great city. I really enjoyed being there. Many interesting people strolling around at all hours of the night.
Gazoo did you see the CN Tower while you were there?
Good stuff man, glad to know you enjoyed it.
What about a sign and trade with Golden State. Sheed and 2008 1st & 2nd round pick for Andris Biedrins & Mickael Pietrus & 2008 1st round pick #14. We then draft Joe Alexander, Kosta Koufos or Darrell Arthur. Or this I hear the Timberwolves want to move #31 & 33 pick for a first round pick. Want about pick #14 for #31, #33 & Rashad McCants. Billups/Stuckey Rip/McCants/Afflalo Prince/Pietrus Max/Johnson Biedrins/Dice/Samb Draft Ryan Anderson at #31 & Gary Forbes at #33
Stop thinking small RealGM: Trade Checker PG Stuckey/Rook??? (Ty Lawson)/Vet FA? Arroyo??? SG Rip/Afflalo/Magette SF Tay/Maggette PF Brand/Max/Amir C Dyess/Samb/FreeAgent MLE???/Rook (Hardin???) Now we've got 4 guys to hassle the hell out of LBJ/Pierce in Maggette/Tay/Rip/AA, and some guys to deal with Rose @ Chicago Lawson/Stuckey/Afflalo. I'm still convinced Amir can handle a lot of the bigs in the league, and if not we know Dyess can.
I did the CN Tower. It was close by. I did not see this woman, however. Damn! Gotta be a doctored picture.
