    Amare is younger. But for the next 2 years, Sheed is the better all around player.

    We are light in the 5 spot anyway, so getting lighter would be a baad idea.

    Sorry, the reflexes are there regardless. Those reflexes approaching a light (do you beat the yellow) are on high alert. With a a four-way stop, you know you have to stop: the inevitable has a calming effect. With the former, your eyes on straight-on as you-gun-it; no peripheral vision is usually evoked. Not too many people killed on four-way stops, because judgments have a motion frame and you must look at least in two significant directions while stopped.

    The reflex drag is down because you have stopped. The speed/reaction time (drag ratio) is increased only with the approach on a light you know must change, irregardless of the peek-a-boo looks at the timing (numerical) cross-walks.

    The average wait time when presented on a four-way stop is usually located in a residential area or an area that is visually dangerous. It is also important to notice ramp-up time in regard to speed and the next known stop. Average wait time does indeed enter into the equation. Most of the time your window of wait is a mere 2.5 hours of aggregate traffic flows over that location.

    Just remember, on a four way stop, the person on your immediate right has the right-of-way (cordiality as in patience only).

    An analogy (this is for Skool):

    Traffic light = management
    Four-way stop = team members

    I guess this is why they invented the roundabout.

    I love roundabouts. Much more efficient than red lights.

    They're perfect guy things - if you're lost, you don't have to admit it and stop and read the map, you can just continue to drive in a circle until one of the possible adjoining roads inspires you.

    They are great fun to drive in if you under some kind of influence of an altered mental state.

    Did you notice the people on the right, have the right-a-away.

    Also, suns need amare to play with sheed; so amare does not have to play duncan, dirk, boozer, etc. Trading sheed for amare makes no sense. amare is a great offense player and sheed plays good defense

    Sheed doesn't want to play much offense. He could easily average double-double if his mind was in the game more often.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think that is why it is called a RIGHT a way.

    i'm pretty sure it's right-OF-way, in which case the left/right denomination is just coincidence of being the same word

    Yep.

    The customary or legal right of a person, vessel, or vehicle to pass in front of another.

    Right of Way does not always go to the person or car on the right.

    In fact the term Right of Way also refers to property rights.
